Beach Retreat Bathroom UPDATE

I finally found everything I needed to complete my Beach Retreat bathroom. You can see the first reveal here. The only thing I was missing was a place to hang towels. I needed the right shelf and planned on using vintage glass door knobs. I found something even better last week.

Here is how it came together.

The shelf is from CostPlus. I removed the original hardware, painted it white and distressed it.

The knobs are old porcelain fixtures that we found at a garage sale in West Hollywood last week. They were old and dirty when we found them. I forgot to take a before photo of these still attached to the original brass piping. Dear Handyman had to work his magic to find new piping with the right thread and make it all come together.

Now I can display some vintage treasures on the shelf as well as have the perfect place to hang towels. I sewed a piece of seam binding to the edge of the towels to allow them to hang nicely.

I am honored to be featured at:
