“Our 1951 brick rambler had a 1/4 bathroom, which included only a shower and sink, both of which were not functional as they leaked to our basement rooms. So during the 12 years we’ve lived in this house, that room was used as a storage space for all of our luggage and extra winter blankets. My youngest son also used it as his reading room when he was in 2nd and 3rd grade, as it was the warmest room in the house! I decided to turn this into a powder room since it was already pretty much plumbed.I would say that 95% of the elements in this room are salvaged (sans the paint). Porcelain floor tile – from the free pile, baseboard tile, American Standard toilet moved from my downstairs bathroom, sink (reused from original bathroom), Decorative Mirror from Goodwill, Price Pfister faucet, towel ring, restoration Hardware Sconce, strip of linen wallpaper (free from my dentist!), oval mirror, chandelier light fixture, and crystals for chandelier.”Do you have a salvage project to share?
