Why is it that I can Google thousands of pictures of bathrooms and cannot find ONE that remotely resembles what I am looking for?!? I am somewhere between Cottage and French Country.
Here are a few items I have found at Home Depot that I LOVE (I looked around on competitors sites and the prices were nearly double...so Home Depot and I will be renewing our friendship!)
|MOEN Glenshire Pivoting Mirror|
I have a color scheme in mind...soft whites, brushed nickel fixtures, a lovely green on the walls with dark plum or raisin colored accent pieces.
|MOEN Eva 4" centerset faucet|
|MOEN Eva 2-Handle Roman Tub faucet|
In addition, MOEN has several other pieces I am drooling over...take a look at these:
|MOEN Lounge 24" Towel Bar|
|MOEN Lounge Towel Ring|
|MOEN Lounge Eruopean Single Post Toilet Paper Holder|
|Glomar 3 Light 17" Flush Mount Light|
|Glomar Empire 2 Light 15" Vanity Light|
|Corian Rain Cloud|
|Cabinet at end of tub|
The cabinet at the end of the tub is a concept I have not completely made up my mind on. The space is approximately 24" wide between the wall and the tub. I want 2 stacked drawers on the floor, each deep enough to contain a rectangular laundry basket. I would like some form of shelving/cubby on top of this, but I don't want it to go to the ceiling. I want the look of a separate piece of furniture. I would love there to be a small cabinet on the outer side (29" depth) with a shelf in it for linen storage, with a narrow (4-6") cubby with a shelf on the side facing the tub that would hold candles and a couple of pretty knick-knacks.
Sigh. I can see it...but I can't find it! Hopefully I'll find a contractor who can build this for me without too much expense.
I have not been able to decide on a floor tile, a backsplash, or paint. I know I want the cabinets painted antique white and the walls a soft shade of green, but finding the exact color is going to be a bit of a challenge for me.
I am hoping to re-do this bathroom on a $2,500-$3,000 budget. We will see. In addition, I'd like to update the guest bath for less than $500! :) I'm picturing beachy cottage! Pristine white bead boarding on all the walls to about 8" higher than the pedastal sink (we already have!). Again, I do not want to buy new sink, tub or toilet, nor do I want to move them. I'd like to paint the upper walls a nice, bright aqua blue and use silver accents. I have 2 doors on the ceiling to floor linen cabinet that I would like to change out and buy new knobs, a new shower curtain and towels, and a new light fixture...maybe a small chandelier? And I'm really hankering for a tile floor done in 1" squares of white with an occassional black tile thrown into the mix. Can anyone else picture this? If I can get this done over the winter months I'll definitely post pictures!
Once that's done, I hope to tear down the wallpaper and trim in the living room and paint the walls RAISING with a soft white (grey tone) paint for the trim and the bookshelves. Nothing like BIG plans! Oh well, I redecorated 3 bedrooms this Spring! There should be no reason I cannot get 2 relatively small bathrooms and a living room done this Winter! :)
Wish me luck!
K. Bye now!
