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 (,) but it can be found in most flooring stores.

Tub- Acrylic soaker tub with chrome feet. Purchased from Acri-Tec (

Floor mount tub faucet- Cheviot ( Model #5100

Vanity- Euro-Rite Cabinets (

Countertop- Formica. Color: Walnut Quarstone

Wreath- Michaels

Sign above door & wooden bird- Heritage House Interiors (


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.



We’d love to see your Before & After pics too, so if you’re up for sharing ’em, drop me a line at [email protected]!
