Powder Room with Va Va Va Voom!

This powder room began with gorgeous marble floors and this incredible custom-built vanity. The client wanted an antiqued vanity similar to one she’d seen in a magazine.

A close up photo shows the intricate detail that went into building this lovely piece of furniture. I’ll admit- I didn’t think there was anything I could do to make this piece better- I loved it the way it was!…

But after applying the antique glazes, the sculpted detail REALLY began to come out. It just kept getting better looking!

Next, the bathroom was painted a lipstick red to pile on the drama!

But the vanity still had more transformation to go. I added a sculpting compound to give the wood a look of erosion and age.

Close up views of the doors show the erosion effect. The joke was that in 3 days, it went from being brand new to looking like something pulled out of the bottom of the ocean.

The final step was adding the elegant crystal knobs.
