204) Guest Bathroom Reveal

I have shown parts of our guest bathroom, but not the whole thing. It’s a bit challenging to photograph, because there are so many reflective surfaces. You can see the two tube lights reflected so often it looks as though there are eight of them!sink2

The guest bathroom is in the basement (high walk-out level) and it doesn’t have a window. I installed re-used (thrice!) glass block to bring in some natural light,Glass block Collage and commissioned local artist Jose Ventura to paint a window right on the wall.kitty painting

The sink is another gem from the Habitat For Humanity ReStore. Our cabinet-maker fashioned a countertop and legs to fit, from a slab of local cedar. Its design should accommodate a wheelchair, if necessary.sink cabinet

Likewise, the shower/steam shower – its base is a wheelchair-accessible ramp. When I was tiling the room, I started on the second row from the floor, so I could make sure that the beginning row was level. The floor changes height to accommodate the ramp.tiling shower

The live-edge counter and shower bench were fashioned from a cedar slab by our cabinet maker. I showed here how I made the clothes/towel hanger out of driftwood.driftwood hanger

And the bathroom door has been salvaged from a local university, complete with the obscure glass. I may put a curtain on the inside of the window some day.salvaged bathroom door

The guest bathroom looks amazing! Perhaps I’ll have the opportunity to use it one day.
I especially like the window with Kitty’s portrait included. Wonderful!
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas with your family.
