An update on our upstairs bathroom – we now have a copper sink and granite countertops!
A few weeks ago, we got to do something I have always wanted to do: walk through a countertop warehouse and choose our own granite slab. We nearly went to Granco Granite after a friend used them for their granite pieces, but I was super fixated on my dream, and guess what? I found a piece of quartz that I LOVED, but had to keep in mind the aesthetics of the rest of the bathroom. I’ll put the quartz in my future kitchen. ;)
You can see my last update on the bathroom [here].
We ended up choosing a piece of granite that I love just as much…maybe even more so because I think the fact that it’s 100% natural is amazing. Nature is incredible, isn’t it?
We had our countertop installer put in the copper sink, as well, and I’m in love with it. (Read more about our sink here). I’m so glad that we were able to find this copper sink as I think it ties in really well with our vision for the bathroom. For me, I think it just completes the look. I hope we don’t have to have any plumbing repairs done on it as I want to be able to use the sink at every possible opportunity, and if it has to have repairs on it, then I won’t be able to do this. I guess we will just have to be really careful with it when we use it so we don’t create any damage to the system, although we can’t guarantee nothing will happen, whether it be us or something that’s out of our control. On saying that though, I can’t wait to use it!
OH and I completely forgot – I finally chose a color for the vanity! We painted it the same color as the walls, and I am happy with how it turned out. I considered a more “fun” color like green or navy, but I wanted the copper tub to the be the center of attention in here and didn’t want a vanity to distract from it. I talked about the paint color [here] – it’s the perfect shade of white, not too cold feeling…it sort of has a SLIGHT grayish tint when it dries.
We’re not finished with the bathroom yet, but I wanted to share an update!
I mean…can you even believe how pretty this sink is?! I’m so glad we went with the granite instead of the white/gray quartz countertops. The granite is some brown in it, and I love how it complements the copper.
See the light on the left? It already needs to be replaced because the glass was broken. Oops!
We still need to put the vanity’s hardware in and finish the shiplap on one wall – you can see that in the picture below.
We haven’t installed the ceiling yet, either, because we’re waiting on the tub faucet and shower head. Once those go in, we can put the ceiling up and then the corner trim pieces (so there’s no gap in the corners).
I found the perfect mirror, but it’s not in stock anywhere. So I’m not quite sure yet what I’ll do – wait until its back in stock or find something different altogether. We’ll see! One of my next projects is to tackle the little space to the left of the vanity. I think I want to put some sort of shelving in there, but haven’t quite figured it out just yet. A hamper for towels would be great too. Any thoughts?!
Anyway, there’s my quick update! I hope you’re having a great day – it’s almost 70 degrees here today so we have the windows open and I am LOVING it! Anyone else so excited for Spring?!
