Bathroom Makeover (Part 3): A Quick Update
March 27th, 2010 by

Here's a peek at the new medicine cabinet against the freshly painted walls and next to the old wall sconces which will be ripped out soon.

The bathroom remodel is about half-way done and we couldn’t have done it without your help.

At your suggestion we painted the walls off-white (actual name: Corner Cupboard Yellowish White). And we took Marie’s hint that the original medicine cabinet we picked out might be too modern looking. Instead, we found an antique silver framed medicine cabinet on Hayneedle.com.

The vanity with vessel sink was installed. But the faucet that came with it didn’t go with the antique design, so we purchased another one.

Actually we purchased two. The first one we ordered online had an original retail price of a whopping $843 but we got it for $185. However, when it arrived, it was huge (about 18-inches high and about 5 or 6 inches thick).

We returned it and found this one from Delta’s Victorian collection. A local bathroom design shop wanted more than $350 for that faucet but we got it online at Faucet-Warehouse.com for $225.

We also started researching toilets but decided to stick with the old one for now. It’s got a big tank (in fact you can’t buy them this big anymore) and we worry that one of the new toilets with a smaller tank won’t work as well.

The new sconces to go on each side of the medicine cabinet as well as a new ceiling light, two glass shelves and four polished nickel towel rings were ordered from Rejuvenation Lighting and should be delivered sometime this week. The last thing we need to find is a cabinet to hang on the wall across from the bathtub that is 7-inches or less deep. We have at least one in mind, but we’re holding out for something better.

As usual, let us know your thoughts.
