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.
