Fixtures for my Bathroom Renovation

Now that Frank and I are back from our honeymoon it is time for us to get serious about getting the downstairs bathroom done. I bought the fixtures for the renovation a while back and they have been hanging out in my garage taking up space.

For my sink and toilet I bought an American Standard Retrospect Pedestal Sink and a Sterling Stinson Elongated Toilet. In my master bathroom I really like that I have some flat deck space on my pedestal sink so that was a must have for my downstairs bathroom as well.

For my bathtub I bought an American Standard Princeton Bathtub. Originally I was planning on getting a cast iron bathtub but then I thought that the Americast with porcelain finish would be a nice alternative.

For the bathtub and shower fixture I bought the Delta Leland Monitor 14 Series Tub and Shower Trim with Porcelain Handle Lever which I thought had a nice classic look. For the sink I ended up buying Vintage Widespread Bathroom Faucet from Overstock configured with the white porcelain lever handles to match the shower. I love the vintage styling of the faucet and think it will look great on the pedestal sink.

My next step is to apply for my permit with the Ann Arbor building department. After having this project on the back burner for so long I am really excited to finally get going again.

Everything looks great! Love the vintage look of everything. Will you be doing tile in the bathroom?

Hilary- Thank you! Heck yeah, I'll be doing the tile myself! I bought a used tile saw back when I tiled the master bath so I am looking forward to breaking it out again and tiling this bathroom, too. I'm planning on doing a classic subway tile for the shower surround and small squares with a pattern for the floor. Should be fun!

Love your new fixtures! Can't wait to see your progress!

We did all the floor tile in our house ourselves when we had it built 20 years ago, but we've never tried wall tile. We're about ready to redo our master bathroom, so I guess we're going to learn! It's amazing what you can teach yourself when you're young and broke; some skills can come in handy even years later.

Sandy- Thank you! I submitted the paperwork for the permit on Friday so hopefully it will get approved soon. Nice work on doing all of your floor tile in your house yourself!

Recently, I came in touch with the best plumbers in town, and it helped in reinstallation of kitchen sink and taps, besides repairing the leaky toilet.
