As we head into our 4th week of being at home, here’s my best attempt to distract myself and feel productive. This is the second post on our master bath update, check out master bath tub upgrade for the initial post.
Because of the detail on the tub, I felt the vanity needed to be simple, clean and modern.
Here is the before pic:
Remove the mirror – this was a delicate step because we didn’t want to break the mirror. This 12 foot long mirror would be saved for the master closet update, hopefully completed in the next few weeks. We used a long metal stick behind the mirror to gauge where the adhesive had been applied. Then we used a crowbar to gently pry the mirror off. After the mirror is removed, you can chip off the old adhesive with a putty knife. We also changed out the light fixtures at this point because we went from two fixtures to three, so there was some drywall repair and painting required.
Once the wall was cleaned and prepped, it was time to tile. We started at the bottom, because the existing vanity made it easy to keep the tiles straight and don’t forget to use spacers to have the tiles exact. If you need more help on tile installation, see slate tile patio.
Mirros / Lighting / Faucets
The new light fixtures came from Lowe’s, the new mirrors from Ikea and the faucets came from Amazon.
