What Houzz contributors are saying:
10. Sewing table. Sewing tables originated in the late 1700s, and were originally used for needlework before the advent of the sewing machine. Now serving as a bathroom vanity, this sewing table holds an antique machine as a decorative touch. A Murano vessel sink and long-neck faucet add height to the vanity, while two drop-leaf sides add extra surface space as needed.
The charm factor continues in the bathroom, where a sewing table that had been in Dana Jacob's family for years was transformed into a vanity. The Murano vessel sink from Thompson Traders and a long-neck faucet from Delta Victorian add some height. Vertical beadboard walls and swinging shower doors contribute to the homey atmosphere of the room. "We wanted to stick with a quirky cottage feel, so a frameless glass door didn't fit in," says Fries. "And we also wanted light to flow into the shower." The tumbled travertine tiles were chosen to add texture to the space.The mirrored medicine cabinet was made from one of the old cabin's windows, and the antique claw-foot tub was restored by Lands End Development. The light fixture is from Murray Feiss.
