A Shipshape Makeover for a 1903 Cottage
Wainscoting as an Optical Bath Bumpout
To replicate the original beadboard wainscoting and moldings, Alicia likewise took pains to make the right choices. "We might have saved some money going the MDF route," she says. "But wood just felt right." What also felt right was the reclaimed heart pine the couple found at another salvage company—planks that had once been a factory floor. A hunk of it now tops the Leaches' dining room table.
Shown: Wainscoting on the sink wall continues all the way to the shower partition, helping the narrow room appear larger. Niches built into the area under the medicine cabinets stow frequently used toiletries, keeping the pedestal sinks' deck space clear.
