bathroom details

As promised.....here are some details about our bathroom makeover....Oh....and if you'd like to see the before of our bathroom, you check it out here.
I'd have to say the number one question I received is....where did I get the sinks. We bought them at Menards, which is a home improvement store. Unfortunately, they no longer carry them. We happened to find one sink at one store and the legs for another sink at another store....and the basin of a sink at yet another store....we did a lot of driving around to get 2 complete sinks. The best part....we only paid $110.00 for each sink....score!
The walls and floor are painted Cotton White, which is a Better Homes & Garden color that's available at Walmart....it's a beautiful warm white.
The rug is from Dash & Albert in the Staffordshire Stripe pattern.
The hooks for the towels are from Target....they have a great vintage industrial look to them.
For the shelf above the towels and the doors on the cabinet we used old fencing we had lying around. A quick sanding unveiled a beautiful worn wood...perfect for adding some warmth to this mostly all white bathroom.
The lights above the mirrors came from Lowes....they're actually outdoor lights. We bought ours on clearance for $20.00 each....I found some at Lowes that look very similar....you can find them here.
I hope I answered all of your questions. If I haven't....ask away.

  3. I think you did such an amazing, beautiful job with the budget you had! Such a deal on those gorgeous sinks. We shop at Menard's all the time too.

  4. You have created a beautiful space. I love the sinks, the lighting and touch a rustic that the fence wood gives. It's all so lovely.

  5. Love your bathroom--we are finishing the attic and want a pretty sink as you will be able to see the sink! This looks like a piece of furniture and so glad you can still get them albeit a bit more expensive than $110--I only need one!


  6. Beautiful - every single thing is just beautiful! Love the lights and the sinks are just wonderful! And of course I love that it's so white!

    Love the way the basket shown in the white mirror, take up the wooden mirror. Clever move ;-)
