Porch House Master Suite // DIY Marble Vanity Top & Other Finishes (ORC Week 5)
THE PORCH HOUSE This post is part of a 6-week series for the One Room Challenge, a blogger makeover challenge hosted by Calling it Home every Fall and Spring. We're tackling the Porch House's master bathroom and closet this go around. Thanks for following along! You can get caught up on previous posts here: part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4
We're five weeks into this renovation, and I wish that I could say there's only a few things left to do, but I'm pretty sure we still have ALL THE THINGS left to do! Not that I'm stressed. Cool as a cucumber over here ;) In actuality, we're in a good spot to finish up in two weeks, but that doesn't mean we don't have a really long to-do list.
This week we put the marble vanity top on the custom vanity we commissioned from our neighbor, Aaron of Munson Cabinetry. And oh my is it stunning! I just decided that honed marble and white oak is my new favorite combination.
It's just so pretty! Are you surprised to hear that we fabricated the marble vanity top ourselves? Over the last year, Garrett has honed his stone fabrication skills (see what I did there?), and thank goodness he has because I love natural stone, but I definately don't love the price tag of natural stone fabrication/installation. I'm pretty sure that I'm not alone there! I'll share a how-to post soon.
We installed the faucets yesterday afternoon. I went with chrome, wall-mount faucets that have a traditional feel. The porcelain knobs are pretty fantastic with the oak and marble.
We continued the chrome into the shower too. In the picture below, we're flushing out the supply lines, but you can see the shower head in my hand. You can also see that we went with the Delorean Gray grout in the shower, which we carried to the slate floor as well. By the way, thanks for all your feedback on grout colors. You guys overwhelmingly steered me towards gray!
I don't want to give too much away, so stay tuned for the reveal. In the meantime, there's lots left to do. Over the next two weeks we'll be building the closet, finding mirrors, installing lighting, sealing grout, and hanging a shower curtain. Phew! Wish us luck. And in the mean time, check out my Instagram Stories for a few sneak peeks.
