A High Victoriancomments (1) March 31st, 2009 in Blogs, Project Gallery
This beautiful 100 year old East Lake style vanity was lovingly adapted with a new sink, taps, and anti fog heated mirror. The essence of the Victorian Era comes alive every time you step in front of this beautiful piece. To complete the room’s ambience, a reproduction cast iron claw foot 6' tub and two owner supplied stained glass transoms were incorporated.
This project involved the purchase of a salvaged antique vanity, interior window for natural day lighting and energy saving dimmers.

Want to see the winner entries?
Fine Homebuilding editors are a finicky bunch, and opinionated too. So the task of narrowing down the nearly 150 entries from our “Before and After: What’s Old is New Again,” kitchen and bath contest to just five winners wasn’t easy.
After the field was narrowed down to a group of fifteen, the editors convened with coffee and notebooks into a conference room equipped with a projector (for easier viewing). After going back and forth, and sometimes cringing, a few entries kept rising above the others, and viola, we found our winners.
Thanks to all who entered, and congratulations to the winning participants who will be mailed a new, DeWalt 18V 1/2" XRP LiIon Hammerdrill/Drill/Driver kit.
