Creating a beach style ensuite

Starting with the right colour was key to the success of this crisp clean look . The colour fittingly is "beach house " by Debbie Travis , a great pairing with the fresh white I used to paint the standard golden oak cabinets .

New lighting replaced the movie star make-up strip style lighting. Two mirrors replace the large slab mirror.
Towel hooks in place of a towel bars.

A pretty place for special things.

White and blue scheme beckons to the sea side feeling .

Adding salvage legs from a table that was 100 years old gives the vanity some needed visual interest .

The apron front of the soaker tub was clad in bead board and edged with marble to bring a plain tub into a custom feature .
There is still work to be done , bead board trim will wrap the room and will be painted white , as well as a new pretty faucet will be an added touch as well as crown moulding. I will make sure to show you when those improvements are made , all things in good time , there is no need to rush .
