The Master Bath Finished

The master bath is finished. So I wanted to share with you how beautiful it turned out! You can see my inspiration pictures in this post, here.

Fair warning - there are A LOT of pictures to follow. The first FOUR pictures are BEFORE AND DURING. I wanted to remind you what it looked like when we purchased it. Remember we had to gut it because there was a major water leak in the shower and the entire bath floor needed to be replace.











And now for the AFTER pictures.
As you can see, I decided to use simple white drapes on the leaded glass window. I didn't want to loose any of the beauty of the window with blinds. The space on either side of the window was too small to stack shutters.
The matching vanities below have Carrera marble counter tops. I purchased some marble knobs and replaced the standard metal ones the vanities came with. Originally I wanted to place a taller cabinet between the two sinks, but there wasn't enough room. I like the simplicity of this, though and am glad there was not enough room.
The vintage smoking stand next to the tub, I have had for years. It was the inspiration for the dark stained cabinets and marble tops.


My vintage chandie, hanging over my tub...love this!







We made the stock (from Lowe's) cabinets look more custom, with the marble tops, knobs and by attaching the towel bars to the sides of the vanities instead of the wall.


Some Close Up Shots of the Details














I love the way this bath turned out. Tonight I am going to break in that tub!
Welcome Home,
Penny

WOW!! Absolutely fabulous! I love the tile floor. It is so much like my grandmother's that was in her upstairs bathroom. You've done a tremendous job. I'm sure you will enjoy this bathroom for years to come.

Penny, it is absolutely beautiful! I love the tub area, so peaceful and elegant looking and I think the simple curtains are the right choice. They really frame the window nicely. The vanities are gorgeous too, I love the whole thing! Will you come redo my house?

You should be proud of what you've done here! It's a beautiful room - one in which I'm sure you'll spend many relaxing hours. We should all buy stock in bath oils because lots of us will be inspired by this.

O, Penny...it just takes my breath away. It is just stunning. The tub, beneath those luscious windows, and crowned with the fabulous faucet set....O, my...I am almost speechless...and of course the beautiful tile....
You are doing an outstanding job....

O, and I went to Lowe's yesterday and they didn't have scrape greenery..guess too many bloggers beat me to it!! :>)

Angie said...

It is just beautiful! Love the vanities and everything else too!

Its sooooo grogous-I just love it.

Rosanne said...

Its beautiful Penny! Love all the renovations you've been doing!

Miss Jean said...

Penny: They say that God is in the details. You certainly hit it right on the mark with this makeover. I'm certainly going to remember your subway tiles when I re-do my downstairs bathroom. It's small but like you have taught us, you can borrow ideas from other sources and make them your own.

Beverly said...

Penny, it is gorgeous. Every detail is perfect.

And, I love the soft panels on either side of the window.

Fabulous job!!!!!

Shelley said...

Penny, I think it's one of the most beautiful bathrooms ever! I love that tub w/ that view of the stained glassed window. The chandelier will be the crowning touch! Can't wait to see it!

Rhondi said...

Hi Penny
You must be so pleased with how it turned out!! It is fabulous! I'm sure that first soak in the tub will be wonderful.
Hugs, Rhondi

joshandcaronchodrow said...

Wow, what a great finished product! So pretty and elegant. By the way, what is that container beside your soap dispenser on each vanity? Just curious-Fantastic Job!

Pamela said...

It is just beautiful Penny! Your guest will all want to use your bathroom now!;)

Gail said...

Love the bathroom, Penny. Beautifully done! What a mess it was under the surface, yeck. Now it is all fresh and new.
You are making amazing progress, love the guest room and your studio.

Cottage Rose said...

Merry Christmas.

jeanne said...

Hello Penny, your bathroom is simply gorgeous. I love everything you have done. The curtains for the stained glass window is the perfect answer. I am going to copy cat your idea. My bathroom has not been decorated and I am anxious to start after the holidays. I want a chandelier over my tub and I need to have it wired. Why didn't I think of that when the house was built???

I scrolled down to see what I have missed. Your workroom floor looks terrific. The space is large and perfect for what you do. I don't envy you unloading those boxes. God luck with that.

The guest bath is much better in white. It will look great when you are done. You have really worked very hard with so much going on Penny.

Thank you for your comment on my Christmas decor. No wonder you haven't done too much, how could you with so many projects going on. Next year you will enjoy the Christmas holiday in your newly decorated home. (and renovated)

Hugs, Jeanne

jeanne said...

Oops, good luck, no errors allowed. LOL.

Jeanne again

rozetta said...

My first reaction was Wow! Your bathroom is just beautiful and so serene. You must be so proud of what you and your husband have accomplished in such a short amount of time.

I love the way that you framed the window with the drapes. I, also, think the two cabinets look more custom than if you had one long cabinet with two sinks.

Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality said...

Penny, I just love how your bath turned out. It is all just stunning & well thought out. Gorgeous, gorgeous!! I know you must just love it all. The floors are beautiful. I'm using some similar white tiles around my tub after the first of the year. Next project! Yours look very similar & I'm wondering if you got them at Home Depot.

Well done!!

Mary said...

I hardly recognize it Penny - it's all so beautiful, great job!!

I'm here squished into a teeny NYC hotel bathroom - you know how those are!!

Have a wonderful Christmas. Hope to see you in the New Year.
Hugs from us both. Hope you are enjoying your snow.

Wow, Penny! What a wonderful bathroom. You did a terrific job!

susan said...

Penny-I have been watching your progress! Those vanities are great--so much more personality than one long with two sinks! The knobs look like marble?? Now I am going to have to google "smoking stand"--not sure what that is, besided lovely. LOVE that window!

Treasia Stepp said...

Absolutely stunning, just stunning. I love the window and the tub. Oh heck I love the entire room. Can I come take a long bath??

All I can say is WOW. What a dream of a bathroom!

black eyed susans kitchen said...

Serious, glorious inspiration...just gorgeous! Now I am off to knock a few more old tiles off the wall in our very old bathroom. I will be printing a picture of yours and taping it to the wall, right next to the sledge hammer.

Allison, Wes, and Aiden said...

Okay I looooove your bathroom! That is like my dream bathroom. Modern but touches of antique style. I love your floor and not the mention the TUB! OMG.
I must ask where did you find that black and white tile. I want to redo our spare bathroom in something like that.

Sixty-Fifth Avenue said...

My dream bathroom...beautiful!

Madigan at madiganmade said...

I love so many of the details. The floor tile? Classic and chic. The marble? Elegant. The chandy? Whimsical yet stately. And the orchid? Perfect.
Can I move in? lol!

Mary said...

We have almost the exact same master bathroom. Difference is, mine isn't remodeled! I love your stand alone tub. Maybe one day I'll be lucky enough to have my own. Great job!

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

Gorgeous bathroom. Loved so many of the details.

VIRG @ WASTE NOT WANT KNOT said...

Can I just say that your bathroom is STUNNING!!! I would love to just clone it into our space. I wonder where you got the shower enclosure and id it was done professionally?

Eileen said...

Wow. What a gorgeous job you did. The whole style of it is luscoius.
It wasn't a bad bathroom before the re-do. But now it is extraordianry.

Jane @ Jane's Junk and Treasures said...

I love that floor!!!
And the tub and the shower and the potty pot, how cute is that!!
Great, great job!!
