Master Reno: Hardware

Yesterday, I flipped through builder supply books and picked out hardware for the master bath vanity and closet built ins. So much to choose from, great day. 

For the closet, we opted for long 12" pulls for the large drawers. 

Possibly these flat knobs for the smaller and middle drawers. 

In the bathroom, I chose these classic chrome pieces. The pulls are just over 5" wide and will go on the large cabinet doors. The chrome knobs will go on the top vanity drawers. 

A very quick sketch 

I also picked out legs for the vanity and closet built ins. Hopefully it will all end up looking like pretty furniture pieces! 

Homegoods shopping today. Someone's gotta do it ;)

Master Renovation Continued

I've been posting on the master bathroom renovation at my parents' house lately, but it really entails the entire master suite. Including the walkin closet which is being redone and customized. Actually, a picture I posted last week of the "vanity" area was actually a picture of one of the closet built ins. Oops! Being in Savannah and my parents in SC, it's been a slight challenge to help my dad with design via vague texts. ;) Miscommunication- check. 

So here's the closet so far. Wall-to-wall storage, shelves, and track lighting. I wish this were mine. Imagine a mirror on the wall in the center, lowered part of the cabinets, sort of leaning. Uh huh. Hubba.

And here is the bathroom vanity. Ok, the vanity height is higher than usual counter height like I said last week, but it isn't varying heights. 

The sinks are installed now. They are undermount rectangular. Purdy. And here's a closeup of the lights. 

And a little preview of the newly painted wardrobe for the bedroom...

It's slow progress, but it's moving! Dad is in the process of building the vanity cabinet fronts now. Then to paint cabinets and walls, hang mirrors and lights, install faucets, install crown, tile the bathroom floor, grout, install the closet and bedroom hardwoods... And then finally, finally install the fun stuff- bedding, furniture, etc. Can't wait!

Bathroom Reno: Cabinetry, Linens, Etc.

The bathroom vanity is shaping up. My dad is building it so everything is custom. 

He opted for varying levels, with the sinks raised a bit higher than usual vanity height. They didn't feel like leaning over to wash their faces and brush their teeth. Love this idea. 
Wall to wall storage. 

The counter tops will be some form of white granite- to be determined. The cabinet fronts will be in a shaker style and painted white.

I've also been on the hunt for a leaning floor mirror for the space. Found some cool stuff at Hobby Lobby. They hardly ever disappoint. 
Not a floor mirror, but still pretty. 

I've also been browsing accessories and bath linens. Bathrooms have a lot of hard surfaces, so it's nice to soften up a bit with rugs and towels. This room has no windows (just a sky light) so I can't bring in softness with curtains. Love these from West Elm...

And the weather here in Savannah has been rainy and a bit chilly lately. But how beautiful is this view? 

Happy fall!
