Lakehouse Garage Bathroom Update

We are getting very close to calling the Garage 1/2 Bath complete. I am having a lot of fun "decorating" the room. I am not sure what the style should be called. Rustique - Cabiny - Eclectic? We have the toilet left to install and the rest is mainly decorating. The mirror is going to be framed with driftwood before we can hang it. I have drawn up a pattern for the stained glass panel that hangs on the north wall. I still want to build a driftwood shelf for over the toilet, design a transom panel for the top of the door and strip a couple of paddles to hang on the painted wall. On the lookout for neat little curio items for the shelves.

Progress lights over the vanity. I love the little leaves and vines on them.

Waiting for the toilet. Those pebbles were no fun to grout. But the finished product is fantastic.
Old window frame that will have a leaded tree of life installed soon. We hung the driftwood shelf on black iron shelf brackets, I found the wood in the water last summer. Likely a piece of old dock. Looks great. The trim board between the barn board and the slate was scraps from lumber piles. They weren't weathered enough so I tried a trick I learned on Pinterest. Soak steel wool in vinegar for about 30 minutes and rub across the wood. Let dry and it turns greyish and weathered..... Pinterest Rules it worked perfectly. Works awesome for the barn board fresh cuts.
Relax... Respect... Enjoy....will update u soon... Dorri
