When you love a house that is just a Hot Mess!!!!

I fell in love with a 1949 Brick Rancher and unfortunately it was a hot mess. Everyone of the bathrooms, the kitchen, paint colors and on and on needed some attention. This tile in the original bath was put on the wall back in the day with concrete lath so to remove this bathroom tile was a huge mess. The pink sinks and tub were out of place and it was time for a new look. Personally in a master unless I can find a spot for a soaking tub I don't  usually put one back. In this bathroom since it was a master we had no room to do a separate tub and I didnt think it would look that great with a tub shower combo so out with the pink tub. Which was so heavy it took four guys to remove. The toilet was in the room for all to view and so we bumped out a wall and enclosed it for much needed privacy. We had room to add a vanity which I purchased on www.amazon.com it came with the carrera marble top and two undercount sinks. I was then left to figure out what to do with the glass block as it caused the new vanity sinks to be off center for a mirror. So I just covered the wall with mirror and pulled the new vendome single sconces from www.circalighting.com in a polished nickel thru the mirror. No more block glass and I didn't have to do anything to the outside brick. Saving money as my husband says that never happens. A beautiful new pendant light by Currey and Company (to the trade only) 
New black marble tile on the floor and subway tile on shower walls with a grey grout. Frameless shower doors and  Benjamin Moore London Fog paint on the walls. www.benjaminmoore.com and Delta faucets in Chrome and this bathroom looks Fabulous! Functions much better and we used a mix of high end finishes and some big box items to save money like the subway tile and the vanity. 
Hope all your snow is melting as mine is have a Happy Friday!

Wow! That bathroom had gone through a wonderful transformation. From looking vintage and simple, it became so sophisticated and classy. I love what you did with the shower walls too; it looks fantastic! You did a great job here, Stacy. Thanks for sharing!
