I have had a lot of questions about the details
and sources in my bathroom
Here’s the post if you missed it
My French armoire was a craigslist find from several years ago.
It is circa 1900, the pale gray wash finish is original and it stands around 9′ tall.
My husband was attending a conference out of the
area & looked at it afterwards .
He was supposed to call me and tell me if it was as fabulous
as I thought it was and ask if I wanted it-
but he just brought it home.
He said just one look and he knew I would love it.
When he brought the crown piece in the house- I just about fell over!
It was *LOVE*!
The shelves were missing so I bought smooth finish 3/4″ plywood and cut new ones for it.
I used primer with a little bit of black paint mixed in it to get a color that is close to the original.
It has the original key and beautiful deep beveled glass doors.
Here it is with it’s doors on
with the doors removed to use as an open cupboard.

Rolled white towels, several baskets to hold essentials,
folded bath mats on the bottom shelf & the hamper next to them.
The chunky gold framed mirror is a recent addition to the bathroom as well
and was a thrift store find.
It was at the Salvation Army and I was immediately drawn to it’s large size,
old gold paint and delightful detailed frame.
The gesso on this beauty is incredible.
I was also super excited to find out it was also 25% off that day!
Love it when you find a treasure at a thrift store that is on sale!
The empty frames I already had and the candle lantern was a Ross find.
The red toile wallpaper was at Lowes (pretty sure) or Home Depot years ago
I found almost enough rolls in their clearance bin
and lucked out finding one more double roll on Ebay
which I used down to the very last bit.
The tumbled marble look tile, gray shower marble ~Lowes.
