inspiration to reality; my master bath

design red studios

Remember when I posted this image as inspiration for the feel that I wanted in my new master bath? It took me a while to find a french-style piece in the right size and color....  


my master bath vanity and side cabinets

...but it finally came together. This is the first time I've had a chance to compare the finish to the inspiration. Gotta say - I'm pretty happy. My cabinet maker built two tall side pieces that are wonderful for storage. I'd highly recommend going this route. My bathroom space is small and it's such a bonus.

I hope to have more photo details up soon...

for the cabinets....did you paint them yourself?

A Perfect Gray said...

hello, how2home! thanks so much for your question. I purchased the vintage french chest at an antique show just as you see it. we had a cabinet maker build the tall side cabinets and picked a complimentary gray to go with the chest. The cabinet maker painted the cabinets. Hope that helps! donna
