Friday Favorite: The NEW Bathroom

June 15th, 2012

The bathroom is officially finished, checked off the list and it’s a GREAT feeling. So much better than the old one, it certainly looks like it fits in with the rest of the house now, it was one of the last remnants of the original house we purchased 10 years ago.

The old torn yellowed vinyl flooring *gone* replaced by 1″ marble hex tiles with light gray grout. New moulding inspired by bathrooms of old, made by Mr Chiots.

The old sad cabinet & stained sink *gone* replaced with a black cabinet that ties in with the black cabinets in the kitchen and a nice big sink that we LOVE (we have the same one in our other bathroom and really like it).

The bright green walls *a distant memory* now painted a light blue, very peaceful and much brighter. A few cherry blossom towels, a much needed new bath mat and an old road sign for the finishing touches.

I found this great little handmade salt pig at Local Roots Market that now houses our clay facial scrub from Mt Rose Herbs. Yes, Mr Chiots used an old-fashioned Classic Safety Razor and LOVES it (highly recommended as a gift idea for that special guy in your life). We love our new bathroom and are so happy with the outcome, we’ve been wanting to do this project since we moved in.

If you could redo one room in your house which one would it be?
