Hollywood Regency Bathroom Reveal

Where have I been?....Finishing up my Hollywood Regency master bath remodel!


Remember my Hollywood Regency Bedroom redo HERE


Well, the 30 year old master bathroom wasn't cutting it.....Yep, one thing leads to another!


I was stunned at the price of bathroom vanities.  So, I bought this antique buffet for $200.  I love that it is higher than standard bathroom vanities.  Then I found the perfect silver and green vessel sink $99 and faucet


How about a free used toilet!
  

What....My friend that owns Adjectives Market opened up a second store that was previously occupied by a design store.  When he had to remove the toilet because it no longer met building codes he asked if I would like it?  Oh my gosh, it is an amazing  Kohler toilet with a great design and a double flush. I love FREE!  Yes, I bleached it first.


Glass shower doors and a blingy row of tiles in the shower upped the glam factor


Here's a little tip......Bathrooms are not remodeled frequently...Over my dead body will I ever redo this one again!  So, no matter how old you are when you do your remodel, you should take into consideration that you may age with this bathroom.  Towel bars can't be used for grab bars, but grab bars can be used for towel bars.  Grab bars have come a long way baby!  All of the bars in this shower are the newest and greatest decorator grab bars from Home Depot.  So, when I need them they will be there.....In the meantime they will hold towels.



I have always used one of these soap dispensers in my shower, $19 from Bed Bath and Beyond.   I hate a shower cluttered with bottles.



This looks like just a mirror, but.....


It is also a medicine cabinet....A big medicine cabinet...How fun is this to peek into someones medicine cabinet lol!


I love this wall shelf, I think it goes with the whole Hollywood regency/ art deco look.  I'm on the look out for some great nick naks for it...Silver...Mercury glass...The fun is in the hunt!



So, there you have it Bathroom done......Check!


So, whats next?  It's 7 weeks until the Polka Dot Flea, the show I started last year....That's keeping me busy!  

If you follow the Polka Dot Flea on Facebook you can see all of the happenings and the amazing vendors we have lined up!



Happy Creating!

Wow! It's just as spectacular as your bedroom was! Love how you got rid of the tub. I would kill to be able to get rid of mine. The soap dispenser is another nice idea. And the sink is pretty cool. Good luck on the flea!

You did an amazing job, Carol! Your bathroom turned out beautiful and is practical as well. I'd be very happy to have such a lovely bathroom. I'm so in love with that vessel sink.

Beautiful transformation Carol! I love your sink and repurposed buffet. I'm with you on bathroom remodels...we did a major remodel about 5 years ago and I never want to do it again. Love the shower accent tiles!

Absolutely GORGEOUS! ( The free toilets I see aren't ANYTHING like this one!LOL. Yay for you! )
It's all beautiful. You have amazing taste! I know it'a lot of work to re-do a bath. You never know what complications you'll run into. Glad it's all done and you can enjoy it for years to come!
Have fun treasure hunting for your nick naks!
Hugs, Julie :)

Your bathroom is really pretty and I love your idea of the soap/shampoo dispensers. I'm buying some. You are right about the grab bars. We installed them and it's so handy to have them there!! I bought some new shampoo/conditioner and it makes the floor very slippery until it's washed away. The grab bars are Very handy!!!

Donna said...

Wow, your bath is gorgeous, you wouldn't know that it's the same room, Carol! I would love to have a walk in shower. The glass tile adds to the glam feel, and I love your idea of using mercury glass. The vintage cabinet is perfect for your sink vanity. We had that same shower dispenser in our motor home (which we since have sold and miss dearly!!). Enjoy your new space!!

Kathy said...

Absolutely stunning!! That toilet was a score and I'm absolutely on board with the "planning for the future". Great job!

Sopa Azul said...

Beautiful job!! Congratulations :)))

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

never thought I would say this but that's a gorgeous toilet. :) I love everything you did Carol. We desperately need to update our baths but I keep saying I am not putting any more money into this house if we downsize soon. Our home market show is next weekend. Sure hope we have a good turnout. xo

Holly- Cutie Pie Cottage said...

Ooo! Fancy shmancy! I'm just doing good to clean mine these days. :D

Best of luck to you with your second Polka Dot Flea!
I was excited to find out that there is going to be a show right down the road from me this year and i'm meeting the planner soon!
I'm so glad people all over the country are starting them up!

Createology said...

Wow! The perfect Glam factor in your new bathroom. Every detail is perfect. Free fabulous toilet is the best. Our remodel is almost done and I hope we never do another bathroom! Your Polka Dot Flea will be hugely successful and you will be thrilled once again...

Becky said...

That is beautiful! We need to redo ours but I am foot dragging over the impending mess,

Teresa said...

It turned out lovely and I so much prefer the vanity you created to the already made solutions stores usually sell.
So in love with the details and very envious of your soap dispensers in your shower - I wonder if they send to my Country?!
And off I go ahahahaha
Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring.

Oh WOW ... how did I miss this? dang, another fabyoulous make over.
I have a bathroom that needs serious doing, you have encouraged me. (())

Mystica said...

I didn't know about grab bars. We need that now so it was very timely for me. Beautiful remodel.

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Carol, I know how frustrating this remodel was for you but the transformation is beautiful! The vanity is so much more charming than the ones the big box stores carry and I love your new shower.
Hugs,
Sherry

Gypsy Heart said...

Such a difference! It's just gorgeous and I love that you changed to a shower. I would love a free standing shower! So wise to have the bars installed!
