This used to be a dresser and now it's a really unique vanity. You'll see close ups of the sinks and faucets further down the page.

These are pics of a fun project by Pete Evens of Anubis Construction. The clients weren’t afraid to take some chances using an old dresser and converting it into a new vanity. With a few alterations by Pete Evens, it’s a unique base to define the mood of the bathroom.

These sinks were made in Pennsylvania by JSG Oceana. They are made using a similar process as much of the oven safe and thermo-resistant (it can take extremes of hot and cold without breaking) glassware that comes out of this region. They are available in lots of colors and sizes. They also make drop in sinks and undermounts which can be fun when installed with LED light below them.

And I’m sure you wanna see what this looks like with the water on, right…???

Come on...this is a TOTALLY fun bathroom, right?!! It would be such a pleasure to use these faucets daily with the water cascading over your hands

We LOVE wall hung toilets for SO MANY reasons. They are so easy to clean compared to a floor mount toilet. One can sweep or mop right under them instead of around all of the grooves of a regular floor mounted toilet. The carrier on which they are mounted provides several height options for installation so tall homeowners can have a taller finished bowl height and shorter homeowners can select the shorter height. (To be clear: once installed, they are not adjustable.)

There's the drain!! It is installed with the floor tile so that it nearly disappears

The drain is by Quick Drain USA. Look closer…there is NO THRESHOLD on this shower. You can walk or roll a wheelchair or walker right in. It’s so elegant and easier to clean since there are fewer corners to get icky.

Welcome to our Family Business

We all work hard to keep things running smoothly around here. Since a very young age, our children have been our cleaning crew. We have never paid anyone else (which may explain some of the dust but they’ve gotten pretty good at it)

While we’re helping you, you will often see these guys with their dust cloths in hand.

She's doing it. She might not like it but she's doing it. And she's not complaining. And then she moved to filing.
