We are getting closer and closer to putting the finishing touches on The Vintage Round Top's new Boho cottage! As we approach the big reveal in the coming weeks, we'll be sharing sneak peek images of the details chosen for the design of Boho.
We're sharing our second sneak peek of Boho's Guest Bathroom this week! A few weeks ago, we shared about the tile we used and our intentions behind creating a luxurious space equal to the Master Bathroom. You can read about it here.
This week we're showcasing the vanity. We originally found this rusted, perforated metal sheet at EX-CESS during one of the Round Top Antiques Shows. We were immediately drawn to it and knew we could repurpose it into a cool new piece, which are two of the qualities we look for when shopping for vintage.
We took the metal pieces to our friend and master craftsman Jon Dahl of Jonathan Dahl Woodworks. Our children grew up together, and we always admired his amazing skills. When we found this metal, we knew it was the perfect opportunity to work with him.
We met with Jon in his impressive workshop in Cypress, Texas and designed the doors using cut pieces of the metal, pairing them with wood from a Pecan tree to create this completely bespoke vanity. Jon has an incredible story about where this wood came from, and we'll be sharing it a little bit later.
Jon helped us design this piece, including the recessed handles and the raw, matte finish that turned out better than we could have ever imagined. We combined this one-of-a kind vanity with a modern sink and faucet for the ultimate modern vintage style.
Aside from this yummy perforated metal, we've found so many integral pieces for the new Boho cottage at the Round Top Antiques Shows, and we can't wait to see what we find again this Spring. We hope to see you there, and be sure to check out our How to Shop Vintage Guide and our Round Top Antiques Week Guide before heading out!
