Upstairs Guest Bath Part Three

Grant & I have been working, working, working on the bathroom upstairs this weekend! (See part one & part two.)

After Grant changed out the light fixture...

...we set our eyes on the vanity area.  The wood cabinets are in good condition, so even though they're not favorite, they're staying.  The easiest way to gussy them up was change the hardware.

Here's what all the cabinetry in the house looked like, including the bathroom. Nice hardware, huh?

We changed out the brass & wood pulls in favor of bin pulls and handles. (See more about them here.)

I also touched the wood up with a stain pen (read more about the obsession here) and gave them a good cleaning.

It's an improvement.

Next we set our eyes on the toilet paper holder and towel racks: there was one large towel bar over the toilet and two towel rings flanking the vanity.  They were just a little modern-looking:

We're getting rid of the towel bar completely in favor of shelving or a cabinet over the toilet, and we replaced the rings with a pair from Lowe's...

It's a subtle change, but in combination with other items, they will add to the traditional feel we want...

Simple fixes so far: less than $200 up to this point including the light fixture.
Next up: the faucet...

Your days are numbered, dated fixtures.

Happy Easter!

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:57
