Welcome to Cindy and David!

Attached are three photographs of our bathroom. I bought the stamped-tin-ceiling wrapped mirror, the metal bins under the sink, the small tin-ceiling photo frame, and the miniture green bench at a flea market. When we renovated our bathroom we saved money by salvaging the sink top from the old cheap vanity and building a new stand for it...

It not only gave us the look we wanted, but saved a LOT of money. The faucet is Kohler, purchased very cheap on e-bay. Before we renovated, there was a ledge between the end of the bathtub and the wall. When we renovated, I decided to put the new wall at the end of the tub, and then build storage shelves between the new wall and the old wall.

Because the shelves are so deep each one holds 2 baskets, giving us much more storage than we would have with an ordinary medicine cabinet and vanity. The baskets are from target. The vase, frames, hooks, and shower curtain are from IKEA. We made an organic shape on photoshop, repeated all over the page and printed it in two different colors on our color printer, original art at next to nothing.

The paint is from home depot, color corn husk by Behr. We re-glazed the original tub, installed the new tile directly over the old tile, and put up the bead-board. We also had a plumber remove a radiator to make room for the bookcase.

The bathroom is an interior room so we didn't really need the radiator and it was taking up valuable space. I think we've made the most of the space. Having a clean and organized bathroom makes getting ready in the morning not only easy, but a mini dose of therapy.

Thank you, Cindy and David
