It’s done! Weeeellllll there may be that last bit of trim that needs to be painted but I’m calling it anyway. I’m so pleased with our renovated downstairs bathroom. It’s better than I even planned it haha. You plan for the big stuff – toilet, paint colour, sink, faucets, tub, tile. I find, however, the things that make it special are the little things you find to decorate and really make it yours.
Towel hanger found in a secondhand shop in Queen West, Toronto, ON. Hand towel – Style at Home Line, light pink – Sears. Sink – Lowe’s. Faucet – Ali Express.
Engineered hardwood. Hickory. Huston stain. Home Depot.
American Standard. Clean. Tall seat. Short bowl. Lowe’s.
The Extras 🙂
Oil paintings that I have collected over the years at auctions, garage sales, antique malls.
I loved searching for a chandelier. I had seen half a dozen that were okay but that moment you find “the one”, i just love it! I found this at a local antique mall –Barrie Antiques Centre– $199
A special gift made for Maeve by an old family friend
Mirror found at another local antique mall –Roadshow 400 Antique Mall– $125 . Oh hey Ducky 😉
The paint colour is from Benjamin Moore – Aura Bath and Spa Paint – Opal. $69.99 / Gal. A beautiful, warm, creamy blush. So fresh and feminine.
Candle wall sconce. $20 for two. Only used one and put the other one in our master bedroom. Bow-chicka-wow-wow 😉
The “Golden Goose”! LOVE this. I didn’t really want a traditional, wall hanging toilet paper holder so when I found the goose I was so excited. It is most likely a pot holder but now it has a new home and a new purpose. Roadshow 400 Antique Mall. $65
The tub is original to the house. I have always dreamed of having a gold tub so it was striped, grinded and spray painted by my husband. Gold Spray Paint – RONA – $7.49.
The little table and yellow glass goblet are also Roadshow 400 Antiques Mall finds. As you can tell it is basically my second home. Table – $45. Glass goblet – $10. The basket was a very thoughtful gift from my sister-in-law. As was the glass candle holder (with lid). She loves decorating just as much as me, and we really share a lot of similar tastes, so I was very excited when she picked out these gold accents to add in the room.
The cabinet above the toilet was an absolutely perfect mistake! We did plan a cabinet above the toilet but we didn’t plan the width and depth. We thought about just making a custom cabinet but with a little research we discovered that the space had the exact perfect dimensions to house a BOBDYN style cabinet from Ikea. We opted to not put on a handle.
