Home Theater Bath – Part 2
Continuing on the bonus room bathroom, I felt the distressing on the vanity cabinet was a bit too rustic against the new metallic glazed walls. I bought an Ebony stain marker and ran it over the distressed edges on the doors, wiping off the excess after a couple minutes. It was a bit tedious, but fairly easy. You can see the contrast in the picture below.
The distressing is still visible, but much more subtle. I also switched out the oil rubbed bronze hardware with brushed nickel.
I also picked up some inexpensive brushed nickel accessories at Home Goods, replacing the oil rubbed bronze ones. New towels came from Target. (That pesky countertop is still ivory!)
The shower curtain also came from Home Goods and features metallic silver stripes which play off the metallic glaze on the walls.
To break up the walls, I picked up a couple picture frames and printed off some of my pictures from our trip to Charleston, SC last summer.
Uh oh, where’d the countertop go???
A trip to the local granite store turned up a gorgeous remnant of leathered White Torroncino granite. Spent a lot more than I would have liked, but it’s beautiful!
New countertop meant we needed a sink and I wanted to get a nickel faucet. Quick searching led me back to one I’ve had my eye on for years – the Moen Boardwalk.
For the sink, I just went with a plain white square undermount. Here’s it all together before it was glued down.
For the backsplash, I went with a sample I’ve had for a while. It matches perfectly.
All that’s left is to replace the tub faucet and shower head which is still oil rubbed bronze. I’m keeping my eye out for something very inexpensive since it is highly unlikely anyone will ever take a shower up there. Final pics to come . . .
