The Necessary Rooms

Encouraging sentiments hanging in various
bathrooms...
One of our guest baths, this one we
call the red-white-blue bath...
....and in this guest bath Jack planed hickory
from old pallets and we used it as a wainscot...
This photo shows a dresser we bid on and won
at our favorite spot for several months...
The Sulphur Springs Antique Auction...
...in these baths I used more of the old
60's-70's fixtures...
some antique sconces bought at the
auction and on Ebay...
..not a great picture, sorry for the shadows,
but this is our 1/2 bath where we used
more of the teak wood...
old sconces from the auction,
and the mirror was an auction purchase too...
...and in our Master Bath I engraved
tumbled marble, then found decorative tile
pieces for the tile installer to place however
he chose.
The tumbled marble engraves
white instead of dark like most of the tiles
I engrave, because of its 'chalky' texture....

I located the columns at a local 'junk' store
and asked the contractor to use them in
this bath...
The grand kids get a kick out of us having a
girls & boys potty room. When the boys are here
they think they HAVE to use the 'boys room'!
This shows one of the decorative glass windows
found at the auction. I didn't want window treatments
in the bath to hide our view of the outdoors so we
used this in the window instead....
The 'girls' potty room...
An antique armoire which is a great addition to
this bath, for holding lots of 'necessary' items....

The quilt on top of this armoire was the first
quilt my Mother ever made.
When my sister and brother rushed here after
they heard about the fire, she grabbed this and
brought it to me that night....
I remember helping my Mother choose
coordinating fabrics for her first quilt...
...oh what great memories!
I am forever grateful to have 'pieces' of her here
....since we lost so many of my
Mother's and Grandmother's quilts
that dreaded day....
...and thinking I'd have time to soak in the bath
and watch TV at the same time....wishful thinking....
...maybe one day!
Love the Cross sconce ordered from a local
furniture store...one of very few 'new'
fixtures in our home....
and we have thoroughly enjoyed the vaulted,
white-washed beaded ceiling in our bath...
...and this is the view from 'His' end of the bathroom,
showing his wraparound shower...

Thanks so much to precious Kelly
for hosting...

Enjoy browsing bathrooms this weekend.

I am so glad I found your blog! I ordered the "Kelly" tile from you recently, and you threw in a "little something extra" since I am a huge LSU fan! Love your bathrooms by the way!

Your bathrooms are beautiful. The use of quotes is exactly what I have been looking for in our hall bath...hope you don't mind if I borrow that.
