    Bathroom Remodel

    This is what one of the bathrooms looked like when we moved in.  I took all of the lace down and lived with the white tile and oak cabinets for awhile.  We had other rooms more important than this one to tackle. After all no one used this one but my son. Well the time has come to bring this one up to date.

    I was looking for a rustic beach feel for the room. I ordered this vanity from Restoration Hardware and these mirrors from one of my wholesale venders.        


    I found this wonderful mosaic, but it was to small.  I had a local artist recreate it for me in a larger format for the floor.

    Here is the tile work done, just waiting on the vanity to arrive.

    The finished bathroom.


    You will notice that I didn't use the rustic mirrors.  They are still back ordered.  I bought some stainless mirrors to replace them.  I like the contrast between the rustic vanity, the crisp stone and the stainless mirrors.  What do you think? Should I replace the stainless with the rustic mirrors when they come?

    Hi! Thank you for stopping by my blog and your sweet comments! I really love what you did with your outdated bathroom. I think that the rustic oval mirrors will give it a more beachy feel. They are also more interesting and just gorgeous! I love the texture of them. Go for it! Love your blog too!

    I think the rustic mirrors would mimic the circles in the tile and look pretty good.

    I like the modern stainless is a little more unexpected.

    Hi Sue, that's a really lovely remodel - i'm definitely going to use some of those elements as inspiration for my "beach vibe" bathroom. That bathroom looks similar in size/layout to the one I plan on redoing and I'm curious around what price range it cost you to do that remodel?
