Once again, months of work can all be summed up in a 5-minute blog post. Amazing.
I hate to even mention this, but this room all started because of a toilet. The one we had caused constant problems, so we looked for a new one and settled on a professional grade one by Toto.
Next issue, our beautiful bowl sinks were a pain to actually use. I had to get on my tippy toes to brush my teeth or wash my face. We had our handyman check out the situation.
He recommended this drop in sink, which would still sit 1.5 inches atop the granite, so I decided to do that because it was a simple change. It was only after he began cutting into the granite that Mr. B caught up with me and said he strongly preferred under-mount sinks. Since we’re going to all this trouble, why do it halfway?
So… we chose these rectangular sinks but since the granite was cut into already, we had to replace it.
Honestly, we never liked what we chose 6 years ago so it was good to select something lighter. The choices were many…
We went with White Galaxy.
Next, I decided to use a mosaic tile backsplash instead of the granite. That caused about 5 trips to a Floor & Decor store 25 minutes away.We chose this one:
Here you can see it with our new faucets too. It seems to pull out the silver tones as well as the white granite and the brown cabinets.
We painted the bathroom walls Sherwin Williams Oyster Bay, the same color as the bedroom, for a continuous flow.
Next project: I wanted to replace the mirrors but decided to first try to paint them with gilding wax. I used “Pebeo Gilding Wax Silver.” I had originally purchased it to try to change the entryway console’s handles from gold to silver.
It was kind of goopy and a long process, but I like how it turned out very much.
