The Basement Bathroom is Functional

We have a working bathroom, yippee! Now I just need to pretty things up a bit. And I should probably paint that vent.

I have plenty of bath accessories to play around with, though I need to figure out where I’m going to put them all (shelving?). I still haven’t found a mirror that I love, but I might pick up this frameless mirror for $15.

Or I could just put this print up instead.

Thank you to Vintage Tub & Bath for the toilet, sink, and faucet, and Schoolhouse Electric for the lighting.

The Basement Tile

It’s in, and it looks fantastic. The bathroom is a different green than the floor, though it’s hard to tell in the photos. There’s no lighting in there yet so it looks a little darker.

Here’s the laundry room. We’re going to get a new back door, so you can just ignore all of that ugliness there.

A closer look at the Octagon & Dot tile:

And here’s a photo from the same angle you’ve been seeing. It’s coming together, yes?

Basement Bathroom Accessories

The design is finally coming together now. I grabbed a ton of accessories (mostly from west elm and Anthropologie) so I could see how everything would work together. Here’s a narrowed down selection:

Not all of those will make it into the room, but most will. Here are a few more things I picked up that didn’t make the cut:

I thought I’d love those zigzags, but they just didn’t feel right for the space. Remember, these are the main pieces:

And I chose a paint color! I used Benjamin Moore’s “Olive Tree” for the walls and ceiling. Originally that color was going to go on the floor in the studio, play space, and tool/storage areas, but I chose Martha Stewart’s “Mossy Rock” instead.

I still need to find a mirror or wall-mounted medicine cabinet, maybe a shelf or two, and some art, but I’ll figure something out. I’m just glad to have moved beyond the initial indecision stage where there are just too many possibilities to even begin.
