• Reader Re-do: Sandra’s Beautiful New Loo

    Hey friend!

    Thought I’d mix things up and publish three posts today!

    I know.
    I’m a real wild woman.

    Anywho…I receieved this letter from a friendly reader the other day, and I just had to show you her radical re-do!

    Check it out…



    Isn’t it great?

    Sandra said the white paint they used on the wainscotting and trim is called, “Ultra Pure White” by Behr (available at the Home Depot)- and the wall color is called “Rawhide”, by Benjamin Moore.

    I asked her about the shelf they made, and she had this to say:

    “My hubby built it, and I painted it with simple, white craft paint. I let it dry, sanded the edges, and then I glazed it with a dark walnut coloured wood stain, and wiped it off.”

    She also gave me her handy-dandy resource list:

    Flooring- Silent Step. Style: Antique Oak. Color: Butternut.
    They purchased it at United Carpet (www.unitedcarpet.com,) but it can be found in most flooring stores.

    Tub- Acrylic soaker tub with chrome feet. Purchased from Acri-Tec (www.acritec.com)

    Floor mount tub faucet- Cheviot (www.cheviotproducts.com) Model #5100

    Vanity- Euro-Rite Cabinets (www.eurorite.com)

    Countertop- Formica. Color: Walnut Quarstone

    Wreath- Michaels

    Sign above door & wooden bird- Heritage House Interiors (www.heritagehouseinteriors.com)


    There are so many great things in this room, but I am especially in LOVE that incredible ladder, and the fact that they went with an inexpensive-yet-durable flooring material that coordinates so perfectly with the wall color above.
    And don’t even get me started on that TUB.
    Hubba hubba!


    The only problem I have with Sandra’s re-do is that it TOTALLY makes me want to work on our bathrooms now!

    But, I’m serious about starting our master bedroom re-do this month, so I guess they’ll just have to wait a little longer.
