There is only a bit of detail work left to be done for the bathroom to finally be completed. Coupla pieces of floor trim now that the vanity is in, and since we couldn't seem to get the second piece of granite backsplash matched via Home Depot, we're going to go to a local stone shop and get two custom pieces to finish up the vanity. And then, almost 6 years later, the master bath will finally be finished!
Quality details - fine hardware, chamfered screw holes, close tolerances. Doesn't get any better
Out with the old....
....in with the new
Jesse put a matching frame around the vanity (Pegasus 'Naples' style) to help break up the blah side and to cover the minor damage that occured during shipping. This was Dale's idea and it came out great!
Pegasus 'Naples' vanity. Quality is okay, better by a mile than what was in there, but after seeing Jesse' work, maybe we should have had him do the vanity as well. Thought for another day. I'm just happy to have water downstairs again for the first time since February!
And Sybil approves
The old linen closet - melanine and flimsy, paper-thin oak doors
A cabinet worthy of the finest home, solid handcrafted maple, custom made and fitted to an oddly shaped hole. The walls and floor are not plumb at all, thus it took Jesse several pain-staking hours to custom cut everything to fit like the walls and floor were actually plumb
The doors are cleverly designed to pop completely open, not just pop open a tiny bit like a average ordinary pressure catch, making it extremely easy to deal with when your hands are full
Ah, the ugly pink toliet. And the even uglier, paper-thin cheesy pink and blue speckled lino. Oh yeah, the ill-fitting (because the walls are so out of plumb) baseboard. All soon to be but a memory
What a difference! American Standard Cadet 4, top of the line Armstrong lino, properly fitted up baseboards (and a lot of caulking), fresh, clean paint
