The last time we chatted about the flip we debated the configuration of the vanity in the master bathroom. I’m sure you’ve been on pins and needles ever since (wink) just dying to know which option we chose…
Well my friends, the wait is over. And as an added bonus, you can see how the tile is shaping up.
As a reminder, here’s how the master bath looked before we started ripping everything apart:
Here’s how it looked mid-makeover:
And here’s how it looks today, with lots of finishing touches left to go (like staining the vanity, adding lighting, mirrors, shower glass, paint, hardware…tons of stuff):
(If you’re curious about the finishes we’re going with, check out the design plan for the master bathroom here.)
I’m absolutely in love with how the vanity turned out. The open toe kick area with the tapered legs might be my favorite thing ever. And the inset drawers – oh, the drawers.
After all of your great suggestions, we decided to go with Option 1 (see it here) but we tweaked the design to create deeper (but fewer) drawers between the sink cabinets. Here’s how the final rendering looked:
In person it turned out even prettier than I had hoped!
We plan to stain the vanity – which apparently our painter “forgot.” I literally almost burst into tears in front of the painter (I blame the pregnancy hormones) when I saw that he had caulked all the seams and prepped the vanity for painting instead of staining. Luckily, we caught the mistake in time and we’ll still be able to go head and stain it. Or else I might have flipped. :)
You may have noticed the junction boxes for the sconces. I’m not sure the placement was my best idea, but the wall has been tiled and I’m going to see it through. You see, there is less room between the left side of the vanity and the shower pony wall than I anticipated, so that sconce is kind of squished next to where the shower glass will be. And it’s a little closer to the wall-mount faucets than I’d expected so mirror placement might get a little interesting (which is what I was debating here). Basically, I’m crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. Would you mind crossing your fingers and hoping along with me? Much appreciated.
Here’s a better shot of the herringbone floor tile. I’m absolutely delighted with how it looks!
Hopefully I’ll be better about posting flip updates for you guys – things got slow at the flip for awhile so I wasn’t particularly inspired to write about it. But now things are trucking along!! :)
