Here it is in all it's pinkness! It was much deeper than this in real life.
I had removed all the decor prior to painting
this room last July.
Here it is today. Much better??? I think so. :-)
I painted it Benjamin Moore's Powell Buff after priming it.
I just couldn't get that pink to go away!
I bought this gorgeous basin and pitcher at a yard sale 30 years ago!
The set included the mug and the soap dish. The old chamber pot
was purchased at another yard sale.
This is the cover to the chamber pot that goes with the set.
The pot is missing so I hung it on the wall above the antique wash stand.
The wash stand was my mother's. It is a burgundy brown colour
and has it's original gold painted trim.
Here is a closeup of the table. It has a towel rod on either side.
This old shelf holds some vintage bathroom items and shells.
This is one of three chairs I have. They are from my aunt's tea room in the 30's.
We just recently got this wicker shelf hung in the corner. It had
been in the family room and really needed to be in here.
And here is the 'modern'
wash stand vanity. It is oak and I had always wanted to paint
it and the mirror when the room was pink. Now, I think it looks great
with the warmer wall colour and also, the bronze towel rods look fine
now. I was going replace them and the bronze knobs on
the vanity. They will do for now.
We changed the plain brown door to a colonial white one which
is so much brighter as there is no window.
I am loving this little bathroom now. All we have to do is replace the floor and
add some baseboard.
Thanks for stopping by to see the "new loo"! :-)
I hope you will visit Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/
