White Trim and Custom Furniture

Today, MJ and I worked on the bathroom in the ET.  Well, I worked on the bathroom.  MJ watched "Twilight" on repeat.  I think she has a thing for Edward.  :D  It could just be that she had a downer day.  It was dark, and gloomy, and it rained the whole day.  I don't know about you guys, but when the weather is nasty, I sorta just want to hibernate.

I cut baseboards out of 1/2" x 1/8" strip wood from my HBS haul.  I used 3/8" x 1/8" wood to make the trim on the wall and to frame the mirror.  I will also use it to make window frames.

All the trim got painted Snow White by Americana.

 Since the bathroom has a softer,stylish look, I went with a normal white toilet.  You just paint the inside of the acrylic and PRESTO!  I did leave the lid clear for now, until I decide what kind of lid to put on it...

 We custom built a side table to put flowers on and a bath tray.  What's a bubble bath in a deep tub without a glass of wine and good book?
Got a bit ahead of myself and forgot to leave an opening for the toilet.  OOPS!

I have plans for the new sink, too.  That pedestal sink isn't staying and the one I have in my head is a thing of beauty.  :)

It was a good day of work!


  1. where in the world did you find that toilet? I've never seen such a thing.

  2. HBS sells it. :) It's te first one I have tried, so I will let you know how it works out.

  3. You certainly have managed to get a lot done. I love that turquoise you chose for the bathroom! It must have been nice to work in the company of MJ! Hope the sun starts to shine for you soon. We're also having a grey day here but no rain. Happy Valentines Day to you and MJ!

  4. Great toilet :))) I love the colour you have used in the bathroom.

  5. I must admit...I'm a sucker for the Twilight series.! I wish I could sit there and watch w/MJ!

    1. Me, too! I am waiting for the mac daddy box set to come out. :) I finally just bought all the books and I am currently reading a fan finished version of Midnight Sun. :D

  6. asi que MJ ha sucumbido tambien a Eduard, a mi tambien me gusta, y ese baño esta quedando muy bien , me gusta mucho el color de las paredes



  7. The clear toilet it pretty cool, I am not familiar with it. I like the table you made and cant wait to see what you do with the sink?

  8. The toilet is original.
    I like the bathroom; very elegant.

  9. I really want to soak in that tub. My Real Life tub isn't big enough for my really tall body. Wah.

  10. At first look I really thought it was huge and then the second photo, oh! Your pieces really looks cute and I love how you arranged the setting of the bath. I want my bath to have a tub too but with bigger mirror, cabinets and shower! haha!
