Strolling for bargains one morning at the Turlock Flea Market, I spied a dining room table still loaded on a sellers truck. I absolutely loved the lines of the legs on this table, so we negotiated a $60 price. Later that morning Hubs found a wonderful vintage door that someone had cut in half lengthwise. He knew he could do something with the two pieces so he bought them both for $30. Little did we know but we had just purchased the beginnings of our new master bath.
A few months later, while designing our bath, we saw this picture in a magazine of two sinks, divided by tall cabinets with a lovely full length mirror in-between. We both really liked the design & Hubs immediately knew what he would do to re-create it for us.
So here's what he did...
The table was cut in half, each side providing the base for the sinks & showing off the fabulous legs.
Hubs then purchased two melamine bookcases at Lowe's as the starting point of the custom bookcases. He beefed up the bookcase with MDF & then trimmed the fronts with the old door & added molding to match. These were then painted out to match the bathroom trim.
He made sure that the alcove between the bookcases was a perfect fit for an antique armoire door with beveled glass mirror we had found at a consignment store on the 1/2 price day for $62.50.
We bought really nice Kohler sinks to drop into the table tops, found mirrors marked down at TJMaxx & light fixtures at OSH.
The chandelier was a $25 yard sale find that Hubs re-wired. The glass block over the alcove were found at salvage for $5 each.
The only things we did not like were the white melamine shelves & the white PVC pipe that showed under the sink.
We found a wall paper we liked on eBay & this weekend we covered the white shelves. Then a can of bronze spray paint changed the white PVC.
NOW, we really love it!
I think he really nailed all of the details! I could not be more thrilled!
