guest bath projects...


i hope everyone has a wonderful day tomorrow!
i reworked our guest bath recently and wanted to show the changes.  it was dark, dated and tiny when we moved in.  it's bright and cheerful today, thanks to the skylight my husband installed.


and he was able to move a wall and add some footage to the room.  the extra room enabled us to add a cabinet for storage and upgrade the 20" vanity to a 36" vanity.  

i fell in love with this hobby lobby mirror and my son bought it for me as my xmas present.  the sconces were found at  ohio's springfield flea market for only $5 for the pair. the rachel ashwell shades were found years ago at a resale shop.



of course, i painted the mirror and lights.  you can see what the mirror and sconces looked like before.


now, that we have room for a cabinet, my husband took my gothic frame,


and built it into a simple cabinet.  it holds lots of towels now.  i still need to add some fabric or chicken wire behind the door...haven't made up my mind which yet:)


have a great weekend!

  3. Hi Lynn, Gorgeous makeover. Love the mirror and the sconces. Your new gothic door cabinet is a wonderful remake too. Love it all and adding the skylight was a great idea. We have added those in another home and loved it.
    Wishing you a Happy Valentine's Day.

  8. Lynn... you really have a talent for re-using pieces and envisioning how thing will look. This is fabulous...your husband made a skylight himself? How lucky you are to have such a talented man beside you! I think the cabinet is beautiful and the mirror...you saw the potential! Everything is so great, I'm loving it!
