Old Vintage Door Meets Bathroom Make Over

Happy Sunday Everyone.  Have you ever tried to take a good picture in a small bathroom? Yep! with no natural light or space to work in it was difficult.

I recently repainted the bathroom and wanted to show you the transformation.  It was hard to get good pictures but here is what I have to show you.


Here it the before pictures of the bathroom.  Cream and white.


I like the cream and white but my vanity was so old and the sink in bad shape cracked and rusted and was in need of up grading.  So since I have been on a painting kick of late I decided to take the Gallery White (hint of grey) on into this bathroom.
I Painted the walls the gallery white which has the tint of grey.  The most exciting thing I did in this bathroom was to take that old vintage door that had the mail slot in it and make it part of my new mirror/vanity.  



Being on a budget I did not want to buy a whole new vanity so I used the shell of the old vanity and Terry cut the bottom of the old vintage door to make these new cabinet doors for the old vanity.  So I was able to use the whole vintage door for this make over.  I loved that I could do that.  





Here is a close up of the mail slot of the door for the back of the vanity.



The top part of the old vintage door made for a great mirror and center piece for the bathroom.  My husband just cut a piece of mirror from Home Depot to fit in the window of the door.


Here is a picture of the room with the chandelier off so you could see it without the glare of the lights.  I used my open shades with the buttons on the chandelier.







With keeping with the vintage feel I used this towel hanger with old door knobs for my towel holder.



Just an old porch post to put a little decor near the tub.




A little candle chandelier over the tub for a nice bubble bath with candle light.  Ha Ha like who has time to take a bubble bath with Thanksgiving on us and Christmas around the corner!!!! Maybe in January!!!




Little vintage night light.
I brought in this cherub wall decor from outside in my garden.  My good friend Sandy gave me this some years back and now I love that I could bring her into this bathroom.  I put some Christmas greens and a nest and angel wings in her for a little Christmas decor for this bathroom.



There you have it.  A little paint on the walls and a great husband that can take my crazy idea of using an old door into the focal point of my bathroom.
  No dollars spent except on the new sink everything else I had and made work.  So I got a whole new bathroom for the price of a new sink and faucet.

Happy Thanks Giving Everyone.  Enjoy your time with family and friends.
I am so thankful for all your support and inspiration and friendships.

Happy Thanksgiving
Kris

  5. OH, MY!

    I love it all and that door is fantastic.

    I think I just figured out why you are so busy in the house and I have done so little. Your weather is turning cooler and you don't spend so much time outdoors. The days here are still perfect for gardening, outdoor exercise and sitting on the beach. We are finally getting some days that I actually want to be in the house.

    Can't wait to see all of your Christmas decor.

  7. Love, love your knock-a-door vanity! Amazing work you two do together!! The mail slot just makes it. Good thing your kids aren't little anymore... although those grandkids... if I was little I'd be droppin' letters to Granny down there all the time! :)

  15. Kris! You have done a wonderful job with that bathroom. I LOVE the idea of an old door like that. Do you remember seeing any of those old houses where they had the little slot in the wall for men to drop their used razor blades through? They just fell down between the drywall to the bottom of the studs. I always thought that was so funny. That is the first thing I thought about with that mail slot! I LOVE how it looks!!!! And, you are lucky to have such a good helper that can work some of that magic for you. Love everything from the lights to the garden cherub- xo Diana

  18. I just visited Teresa's and saw her pretty bathroom! I wouldn't know it was the same bathroom, with both of you. An amazing transformation. The old door is unique for sure. All of your touches are lovely and I especially like the little chandelier with the frame shades. Well done!

    My husband fusses every time I ask him to get pictures inside our small bathrooms. Almost impossible to do well. You pulled it off!
