In our 2 other bathrooms, we installed wood counters made from a gym floor. We were able to salvage the wood when a local University tore out the old gym floors.
Actually it was quite the ordeal to make this counter. My husband cut his knuckle very bad on the table saw ripping the boards done for it. While pushing boards through, one jerked and he accidentally hit his right knuckle into the blade! Scary! He ended up being in a bandage for a month because there was not enough skin left to stitch. Ew! Thankful he didn’t lose a digit and from now one he’ll always use the push tool to push wood through. I saw this and shared with him, he wasn’t amused.
Next up, Counter and Sink Install
Our other 2 bathrooms also have vessel sinks that we got on Amazon, along with these faucets and drain stopper. In all 3 bathrooms I painted the cabinets with this chalk paint and replaced the knobs and pulls with cute ones from Hobby Lobby.
Backing up a bit
I have a good tip for removing old mirrors that have been glued on. Place tape (green painter’s) across the whole mirror. That way if it breaks when your prying it out, the glass shards are held in place instead of shattering.
For the backsplash we decided to use the salvaged tin we also used in our kitchen and on the stair treads. You can read the post about the kitchen here. We cleaned the tin tile, primed, and painted.
In our other 2 baths, I used the popular round gold mirrors from Target. For this bathroom, I found a cheaper one for $20 less at Tj Maxx and scooped it up. I found a sweet little piece of art at Hobby Lobby. Also this little reminder for the kids. Think it will help them remember? It’s from Hearth and Hand- Magnolia at Target.
Last but not least!
This beautiful shower curtain from Amazon. Its an almost spot on dupe for the popular Anthropologie inspired shower curtain that cost 5x as much!
I love using Anthro as my inspiration, mixing vintage with modern touches is so pretty and definitely my favorite. I love the whimsical touch that the knobs bring too!
Praying everyone has a safe and healthy week, we’re all in this together!
