I’ve been able to shake off my winter blues (probably because it has been in the low to mid 60s and sunny for the last two days!) and got right back on track with my Master Bath Remodel Mood Boards.
1. Modern Chrome High Arc Bath Faucet (Home Depot)
2. Round Metal Mirror (IKEA)
3. Mid Century Starburst Towel Bar (Rejuvenation)
4. Retro Dresser (I think this one is a Basset, not sure of the line though)
5. Light Pink Wall Color (To be determined)
6. Glazed Porcelain Tile-Pink dot (Buytile.com)
7. 6×6 Glazed Ceramic Champagne Tile (Cinca Nova)
8. Metro Hex White Porcelain Floor Tile (Home Depot)
Okay, I know what you guys are thinking…
“Where’s the sink?”
Well, I’ve got that covered.
Ever since I saw this post on a fellow MCM lover’s blog, I have been thinking about using a retro dresser as a bathroom vanity. I have four criteria when it comes to selecting a dresser for this purpose. It has to have lots of drawers, it has to be less than 50 inches wide (harder to find than you would believe!), it has to be wood and it has to look cool. I’m not sure of the measurements of the dresser I chose for the Mood Board, but I know there are a few different sizes of this design. Hopefully one of them is under 50 inches long? I also considered the Broyhill Premiere line, since pieces in that line have little starbursts carved into them which would look cool with my must have towel bar, but I don’t know if there are any styles under 50 inches in that line either. If I decide to go this route, I would use this method to retrofit the dresser with sink top (either made specially for me or possibly purchased off the shelf If I could get the sizes to work out right) since I am not a fan of vessel sinks. In all likely hood, I would be painting the retro dresser white to blend it in with the bathroom’s look (or possibly pink?)
The faucet I selected looks very modern, but the handles echo the starburst shape from the towel bar that I
must will own. In this bathroom, I won’t be tiling the walls (except in the shower) and will instead paint the room a pale pink. The floor tiles will read as mostly white, but the small pink tiles in the pattern will be like sprinkles of retro all across the floor. The pink wall tiles in the shower will be 6×6 instead of the retro standard 4×4 and will make for less grout lines to keep clean. The white hex tiles on the floor of the shower are a classic choice.
I’m really liking this more Retro Mood Board, but the tough thing in this option will be finding the right retro dresser to convert into a vanity. It could be worth the trouble though! I would surely have the most unique bathroom on the block!
So now that you’ve seen three possible options for my Master Bath Remodel, which one would you choose?
