    Default Vintage details make an old bath new again

    Before: Unused Space

    Much of the attic was unfinished storage space; the bathroom had a filthy metal shower, a tiny sink and toilet, and layers of peeling vinyl flooring.

    Er, the before was pretty darned bad, right?

    I don't care for the sink-as-furniture concept. But the rest of it is really nice. The molding is incredible! I also think sky blue is a lovely color for an upstairs bathroom: Calgon, take me awaaaaaaaaaaay!

    I'm not sure I think the mirror and the piece of furniture the sink is resting on goes with the rest of the bathroom, but overall it's gorgeous. I'd take it.

    i hate the mirror above the sink, and don't really care for the sink itself, especially not the faucet.
