I finally (FINALLY!) get to share our finished master bathroom! We started this project back in October during the One Room Challenge, and while we finished all sponsored aspects of the bathroom (the wallpaper, the mirror, the lever door handles, and the pendant lights), we still wanted to replace the pedestal sink with a more functional (and beautiful!) vanity.
The feminine wallpaper was calling for a more modern profile vanity, and the Toby vanity was more than perfect. The open shelf at the bottom is perfect for a tray to display pretty folded towels, and the matte black pulls are a great balance to all the brass elements happening in the space. I spoke about my faucet dilemma on Instagram stories, we had ordered the champagne bronze faucet and it seriously clashed with the mirror and lights. I’m happy we settled on this matte black faucet. It’s just the perfect amount of modern to balance all the feminine elements in this space.
The vanity comes without a countertop, which I prefer anyway because I L.O.V.E. shopping for stone remnants. Choosing your own countertop is such an exceptional way to add a personal touch to any space. I wanted a white marble but nothing with extreme veining. Remnant shopping can be tricky, it’s like shopping the clearance rack at Target, you really never know what you’re going to find, which is kind of thrilling! I found this remnant that was just the perfect size we needed for the top and backsplash. The remnant was $180, plus $500 for fabrication and $500 for plumbing + install. Fabrication is typically the most expensive part of customizing a countertop, and we chose to go with mitered straight edges which takes a lot more precision and skill when fabricating. Our installation was a little more expensive than you’d expect because our contractor also upgraded and relocated our plumbing.
I know every home blogger says this, but I seriously couldn’t be happier with how the vanity turned out. And now for the best part! I mean, who doesn’t love a good before + after?
SO SATISFYING! I still can’t believe the bathroom was previously safety orange. My goodness!
