Check out the Blair Bathroom Project in all its completed glory:
And a refresher on what we started with:
I couldn’t be more pleased with how it turned out.
The new vanity is in place after one coat of primer, two coats of a beautiful navy colored chalk paint, and three coats of polycrylic and completed with a pair of glass knobs. It plays so well off the mosaic tile floors.
And the faucet. Oh, the faucet. The glorious fucking faucet. It is absolutely beautiful. I love it so, so much.
The real star of the show is the original clawfoot tub. I refinished the exterior of the tub and feet with a lot of elbow grease, some oil primer, and 2 coats of BM Satin Impervo. I could not be more pleased with the outcome.
The homeowner picked out the lovely shower curtains which plays off the blue vanity and features a clean and simple geometric design. The chrome shower supply basket is an addition that is both beautiful and functional.
The natural bamboo roman shade looks amazing in this space and adds a touch of warmth and contrast to the room.
Another favorite item in the design, the tub caddy is a STP Haus Original (I take orders!). Crafted from a lovely piece of walnut and sealed with 3 coats of an oil varnish, it is the perfect place to set a glass of wine, a candle, and an iPad or book while taking a relaxing soak.
The towel rod, toilet paper holder, towel ring, towel hook and toothbrush holder are all from the same Anthropologie line and feature an interesting carved design. They really pops against the traditional beadboard and chairrail.
Several new and antique decorative items and art were brought in and arranged to have an “added to over time” look without being too cluttered. It really helps bring the room together into a comfortable and inviting space.
The Scandinavian style bird house and painted steel garden stool add a touch of whimsy.
A few hanging, potted, and fresh-cut plants inject life and color into the room.
Thank you to my wonderful mother-in-law, Lory, for her patience and putting up with the noise, dust, and paint fumes while we worked on this project over the past couple of months.
I have plans for a more detailed post coming soon including the total budget and breakdown of costs as well as sourcing for all the items you see here.
The Blair Bathroom Project was a lot of fun, but we are looking forward to making some progress of our own over at St. Paul Haus. There have been a few small changes over the past few months that I want to talk about, and soon there should be a BIG REVEAL of the completed kitchen renovation….which has taken us a good 3.5 years… SO EXCITING! Stay tuned.
