Well, the final piece to the master bath was installed late last week–the shower glass! I was at work when it was installed and couldn’t wait to get home and see it. The folks at Malibu Shower Enclosures did a beautiful job.
Here’s a sketch I made over lunch a few months ago at the start of the project. I ended up making some changes to what I originally envisioned, but overall, I’d say it’s pretty close!
The 6×24 ceramic floor tiles have been really easy to clean and definitely have the look of real wood.
I picked a shower door handle that had some traditional detailing.
We went with a stone mosaic in the shower. I love the touches of black in it that pick up on the tub exterior color.
The tub refinishers did a great job and handled a couple issues that came up so quickly and professionally. They offer a 5 year guarantee on their work. The 1912 tub looks and feels like new. The tub hardware really helps lend the right feel to the whole room.
I went to a local granite supplier and combed through their remnants to find a marble. I found this one, a Carrera marble that was exactly the size we needed. I did an ogee edge along the front to bring some more traditional detailing. I was pleasantly surprised at the savings of remnants, and there were *tons* to choose from!
I brought a new plant friend home! I’ve always wanted to try a bonsai. We’ll see how this guy does in the filtered light. The barnacle came from a local antique/thrift mall.
The vanity pulls from Hobby Lobby. I put a matte black paint wash on the vanity to tone down the original finish which is a cherry stained maple.
A view the other way in the bathroom.
That’s it! I have plans to switch out the vanity lighting at some point, and sketches to make a new towel bar. For now though, we’re just going to relax and enjoy.
Last, but definitely not least, if anyone in the Charlotte area is looking for a quality contractor, check out G&H Enterprise Services. Ian “Maxi” Maxwell, Gabriel & their team were so great to work with throughout the process. I’ve already started sketching up future projects to work on with them!
