Just a few updates:
I installed a new towel bar – it’s Moen’s Align series in Brushed Nickel. It was not an easy feat to install and I think I might have done it easier without using the paper template.
I got a new shower curtain – Mid Century inspired and I think it looks pretty cool in the room. The shower rod and hardware is still oil rubbed bronze because I’m debating whether or not to get a curved rod or not.
I removed the outdated medicine cabinet. It was too big for the room as well as outdated (in a bad way). The picture below was before I replaced the lighting.
Without the large medicine cabinet, I had to change out the lighting as well. The three glass pieces were heavy and weighed down the light bar. I didn’t want to buy a whole new light system again so I looked around for something I could build/create that was simple (not requiring a whole lot of wiring).
I found a blog of an idea that came from a local restaurant here in Austin
. The idea was simple, easy and the best thing was the parts could be changed around over and over. I quickly went to the store and bought some pieces.
Then I went about in spray painting them in Brilliant Silver.
I took down the old light, painted the wall and installed the lighting. I changed it around a few times and might still tweak it a little more.
I love the idea of using different bulbs (LEDs of course) and I had to remind myself I didn’t have to create symmetry and it would still look cool.
I do have a medicine cabinet to replace the monstrosity (that I donated already to the Habitat store). It’s a vintage one made by Lawson and it’s currently being spray painted since it came from an old house.
