Downstairs Bath

Check it out! The tile work has been done. Some caulking, some of the fixtures still need some installation and tweaking but it's basically done. The vanity, mirror and lights are installed and artwork hung. Again, caulking still needs completing but it will happen shortly. Curtains will be delivered shortly and we will get the shower curtain rod installed and a few other things need to be installed yet, but it's coming along and it's usable. Yipee!

As a reminder from previous posts, we bought an antique oak dresser and modified it to be a vanity. We bought a piece of stock oak and routed it, etc., then stained it for a back splash. We mounted it to the vanity with steel plates. We purchased the antique oak mirror at an auction never thinking we would put the two together but realized they were perfectly paired. To install the mirror we used a slotted angle at the top which is not visible and then the bottom of the mirror we used chair braces in an antique bronze finish which connected the mirror to the back splash. The lights were from Renovator's Supply that we purchased quite a while ago. It was good to get them from storage and get them installed. I'll add more pictures once the bath is all done. Let me know what you think!

The tiling in the upstairs bath has been completed, too, but I don't have the pic up yet. We are getting there folks.


  1. Love the new bathroom, especially your vanity and mirror! Great job, bet your glad it's done! Margaret

  2. Thanks, Margaret! Well, it's not QUITE done but it will be soon. And then we need to finish the upstairs bath, too. But once these baths are done the rest of the house should go easy. I love your work, BTW. :)

    If everything isn’t watertight, leaks can wreak havoc here and in whatever rooms may be adjacent or below. If lines aren’t straight, tile can accentuate it. We take the care that your master bath, guest bath, or powder rooms require, all the while personalizing to your suit.

  4. Hi, Jackie! Thank you for your post. Yes, leaks can present a terrible thing. I remember before we stared this remodel, one particular rain storm where the rain just poured in at the stairs. It was shocking! I do hope you will visit again.
