What made this bathroom come together were all the little details. I started looking at the traditional items available in the big box stores, but they just didn’t have the character that fit this house.

This room required creativity and lots of it! Not only with the functional design, but with all the little touches. From Home Depot to the flea market, its all about finding that right mix.

I spent hours searching online, combing through thousands of faucets, looking for just the right one that fit the bathroom and was within budget. Of course I loved some of the faucets that were $800 +,  but finally settled on one for around $150.

I just love the detailed knobs. They go perfect with the carrera  marble counter top.

I found this charming vintage frame at Bella Roba; this cute little shop that carries lots of vintage pieces. While most of them are already refinished, there are a few in their “raw” state. This was one of those pieces in its original gold glory.

I painted it using gray and white chalk paint and just a touch of antiquing wax. I had a mirror added to complete the project.

These drawer pulls were my savvy flea market find. $2.50 each! I found that a little spray paint can go a long ways!

I love how these cast iron pulls on the vanity doors are different from the drawer handles above, but still all tie together.

The vintage towel hooks are upcylced from our downstairs water closet. My only cost was the spray paint!  They go great with my reclaimed 1870’s barn wood shelf. Another savvy flea market find!
