Oh man. So much to say about this room. And most of it has already been said. Once upon a time this room was a bedroom. The people who renovated the house before us quickly turned it into a bathroom with a washer and dryer in it. Basically it looked like a bedroom with hardwood floors, a washer and dryer in the closet nook, small shower, pedestal sink (zero storage) and a toilet in a little room. We re-renovated it into a much nicer and more practical master bathroom with a huge (4’x5′) hand-tiled shower with duel rain showers, tiled floors and a sink vanity made from a vintage piece of furniture. And, we did it ALL ourselves. If you have a few hours to burn, you can read all about our renovation project here.
One of the best parts of the master bathroom renovation was creation of a separate laundry room. I remember having this floor plan epiphany while I was driving home from work one day. Originally we were just going to put doors in front of the W&D, but as the designated laundry-doer, I really wanted a walk in laundry room. Clearly, it’s not finished yet. Projects of higher priority caused us to stop when it was functional and say “good enough for now.” I have plans, though. Plans involving a craft/sewing table and prettier storage baskets for the shelves. Hopes of tiled floors (using the same tiles as the bathroom that we have in storage.) Dreams of attached drywall, mudded, primed, painted…
I love this! You guys did an amazing job on your bathroom. And I love the MCM credenza/sink vanity. Those kind of storage credenzas are probably one of my favorite pieces of furniture.
Thanks, Amy! We searched for a really long time (a year, I think) for a credenza that was the right height, width and depth for this space. A little deeper would have been good, as you can see, but the height and width are perfect.
Wow! I’m inspired now! I received the Ikea catalog last week and was skimming too. I’m amazed at what you’ve done. This set up is beautiful!
omg the eat more fiber print! love it!! and the entire bathroom, really.
[…] since I saw this post on a fellow MCM lover’s blog, I have been thinking about using a retro dresser as a bathroom […]
