Vintage Bath Revamp After: Slowly But Surely

Who: Katherine and Conan Fugit
Where: Wichita, Kans.

Out went the old tub in favor of a salvaged cast-iron claw-foot. And instead of the existing Grecian-inspired sink, the couple plumbed a vintage pedestal that they got for just $60 on Craigslist. The sink's cross-handle faucet taps were a lucky find at a local antiques store. To house towels and toiletries, Katherine reworked a thrift-store media cabinet. With a new painted finish, glass panels in the upper doors, and robe hooks on one side, it's the perfect bathroom storage piece."I'm all for slow decorating," says Katherine. "I want to find the exact right thing at the exact right price." And even though the remodel took a year to complete, 
she says, "it was worth it."
