The downstairs full bath is just off the kitchen down a narrow hallway. It really needed a complete upgrade. Gone is the ugly lime green paint and the horrible 70's dark walnut cabinets. The gold sheet vinyl floor replaced by a clean black and white hexagon tile. We used it throughout the house for backsplash, flooring and the fireplace hearth.
The Victorian dresser we bought a year ago to use as the vanity. Normally I wouldn't cut into a piece but these are fairly common. The top was missing it's backsplash and the holes filled with wood putty. So it was a less than perfect example but it still hurt. We installed a surface mount basin so the top had to have a hole drilled for the plumbing. The drawers had to be cut out inside as well to accommodate water lines. They still open and are usable just need compartments made to keep things from falling through the cutouts.
The final touch was the stained glass panel to cover the small window next to the tub. Its a southern exposure so the little birds glow in the morning sunlight. The bird in the center is a Cardinal which happens to be Ohio's state bird. -Mike-
