Bathroom Renovation: Update


WHEW-- what a week!  Here are some updated pictures of the progress on our bathroom renovation.

A lot has been happening, and as you can see, you're beginning to get a better picture of what the finished bathroom will look like.  The initial coats of paint are up, and the vanity has been moved into place.  Right now, we are waiting for the mirrors and new faucets that I ordered to arrive, so we can complete the plumbing and then install the light fixtures.

I found these mirrors at Pottery Barn for $249 each.... you would NOT believe how hard it was to find polished nickel mirrors.

The faucets that came with our vanity ended up looking cheap and were chrome, so we had to find replacement ones.  I ended up choosing the same style and brand as the one I selected for our kitchen, in polished nickel.  They're made by ROHL, and were $440 each.  We ordered ours from Hughes supply in the Charlotte/Matthews area.

We are also adding custom cabinetry doors to the bottom of our alcove niche, which will match the woodwork on our vanity.  I just realized that we didn't have enough storage, and adding some doors to the niche will really give us more room to store the bathroom stuff that isn't suitable for display!

We had some issues with the tile installation, which is why the shower area is left out of the pictures.  Our contractor Matt is on top of getting the tile fixed and re-installed, and i'll post more pics of that when it's finished.

For now, i'll leave you with a picture of our custom dining benches from Ballard Designs that just arrived yesterday!  Happy Holidays to everyone!
