Thanks so much to everyone for the kind comments on the master bathroom!

I don’t think I’ve ever done a full, separate post about sources before, but there are a lot in here, so I thought that would be the best way to keep the original reveal post from getting out of hand. So I’ll go through and tell where everything’s from and also offer up a few thoughts about the decision making process here and there.

black and white master bath with red rug

Paint: the black paint (both wall and trim) is Benjamin Moore’s Jet Black. We used Advance semi-gloss for the trim, doors, and cabinets. The white is Benjamin Moore’s White Dove.

The rug is from Home Decorators Collection. It’s the Tollan area rug, but it looks like it’s no longer available. I like the rug in here, but if I find a reasonably prices vintage or antique rug that I like better, I’ll replace it in a heartbeat.

Campaign chest was a gift from my Dad many years ago.

The big light fixture is thrifted. The one on the far side is from Home Depot.

The slate tile is the Samba Black tile from Floor and Decor.

black cabinets and black wall in bathroom

We used the existing vanity and counter, but replaced the old faucets with these from ebay. They were super cheap (I think I paid under $70 each), and the verdict’s still out on whether they’re worth it or not, since we haven’t managed to get both of them to work without leaking yet. You can run into issues with cheap faucets with parts being sort of weird and non-standard, so that if something’s not working it’s hard to figure out how to fix it. They’re oil rubbed bronze, but look pretty much black, which is actually what I wanted and was hoping for (I have some concerns about how well the finish will hold up; I’ll have to report back in a few months).

I thought about glass (or maybe milk glass) handles for the cabinets, but I had trouble finding anything that seemed exactly right, so in the end we just grabbed these simple, inexpensive ($8 for 2) brass handles from Ikea.

The towel bar (and matching toilet paper holder, which I don’t think shows up in any of the pictures. Sorry, I didn’t take pictures of my potty for you) are from Amazon. They were a tiny bit of a splurge; i.e. they were not super expensive, but I could definitely have found simple towel bars cheaper, but I’m really happy with them. They have a nice brushed brass finish that I love in this space.

We reused the existing vanity light, but spray painted it with Rustoleum’s Champagne Mist and added Edison bulbs.

The mirrors are all vintage and/or thrifted except for the two frameless ones, which came from Target.


The brass elephants and dog planter are vintage, but that marble toothbrush holder is from Target, and I love it. If I can’t have marble countertops, at least I can have a marble toothbrush holder.

black and white master bathroom with vintage planters

The plant stand and all those planters are vintage/thrifted. All the plants came from Home Depot. The shelves are from Ikea. We’d originally planned to build floating shelves here, but we kind of ran out of steam and decided these were the next best thing.

I picked up the print from a garage sale years ago, but it’s a Marc Trautmann photo.

We spent a lot of time trying to pick out reasonably priced bamboo shades that would work in here, and finally wound up with these from the Home Decorators Collection from Home Depot. I mentioned in the other post that they’re not as opaque as I was expecting/hoping (they’re described as “privacy weave”), but they were easy to install and are easy to raise and up and down, and I think they block enough light to work for us.


The shower curtain is from Target; it was under $20, and you really can’t do much better than that.

Bath mat is also Target–Nate Berkus. I looked and looked for the perfect bath mat, and passed this one up a few times, thinking it was too busy, but now that it’s here I really like it.

Those towel bars are vintage glass ones; I ordered them from Etsy and then spray painted the chrome Rustoleum Champagne Mist (again). I kind of wanted to do a few big hooks, but Dave was worried the towels wouldn’t dry well. Always function over form with that one.


We replaced the mismatched lightswitch and outlet covers and doorknobs with oil rubbed bronze ones from Home Depot.

Everything on the campaign chest is vintage/thrifted.

I’ll do a post with all the gallery wall sources later on..

And I think that covers it! If I missed anything, let me know and I’ll try to fill you in!

    • It’s funny–it LOOKS vintage (and that’s why I ordered it) in pictures, but then in person there’s no mistaking its newness.

Like all human bloggers, I love comments :)
