Progress Report: Master Bathroom

Our new master bathroom isn’t small, but it is the second item on our major renovation list after moving the laundry.  It is very dated with gold fixtures, a big frameless mirror and a vanity with a weird inset under the sink area.  The toilet sort of sits out in the middle of the right side of the room and the shower is tiny.  I started my temporary updates with new paint.  The previous owners had it painted a vivid golden yellow.  I used the same paint color from the bedroom, but added some mildewcide to the paint for added protection.

I painted the vanity using Sherwin Williams Adhesion primer and Pro Classic paint in Dover White.  I’m very happy with this shade of white.  It is slightly warmer than buying straight white gloss paint off the shelf.  I also changed the hardware – 3 inch finial pulls from Martha Stewart in polished nickel and nickel hinges.  I also scoured the internet for towel rings after discovering that the polished nickel selection at local stores was awful, not to mention that many of the towel rings now seem to have metal posts but plastic rings.  I found an ebay seller with three Waterhill polished nickel towel rings by Moen for $25 each, much better than the $88 msrp.  I bought all three so that when I get around to the other two full bathrooms, I will have them on hand.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
