Let’s take a little tour of le bibliotheque which at The Glade is the powder room.
The wallpaper looks like this.
The wall is only papered part way. At the juncture where the paper and wall meet is an actual 3 dimentional shelf.
For your eyes only is the fuse box directly across from the door as you enter. Can you see how well it is disguised with this patterned paper?
Charlie loves showing this to guests. I think I have it hidden and he points it out.
The original sink is still the one we use but we had it refinished. During that process one of the faucet holes was filled in and a lever-handled faucet replaced the separate hot and cold faucets. Below is the before and after.
Above the sink is a framed mirror purchased at an auction that almost covers the entire wall.
I’ve retained the original towel bar and toilet paper dispenser. The two wall sconces were bought to match these fixtures. Now, however, it might be time for something different. Maybe they just need some oil rubbed bronze spray paint to subtilize them a bit. I could also hang the lamps upside down.
The floor was a lot like the laundry room floor: old vinyl flooring. And the sub-floor had rotted away in a couple places due to toilet leaks.
We fixed all the leaks and added hardwood flooring to match the rest of the downstairs.
And so this is le bibliotheque. Small but necessary.
