Vintage farmhouse bathroom - right side

The pipe included with the bathroom kit would have made the wall sink too low, so I used a spare pipe I purchased from Sussex Crafts. It also bothered the realist in me that there was no way for the water to get to the taps. So, I added two lines of aluminum tubing from the sink to the floor.

I added tiny washers for these new pipes as well as little valve knobs so grandma can turn off the water in an emergency. :D I know these are typically oval, but all I could find were round ones in my box of watch parts. I drilled holes into the aluminum tubing and glued them in place with super glue gel. It might not be up to code, but I love the way it looks!

The medicine cabinet is also from the Chrysnbon kit. I painted it with Krylon Almond in satin finish. I like that it matches somewhat but I didn't want a glossy finish to compete with the sink. The hinges and knob are painted with Liquitex Iridescent Bronze. The wall sconces are Chrysolite kits, though I left off the reflectors. I painted the brass parts of the sconces copper to match the bathroom colors and switched out the included wires for replaceable bulb sockets.

The details you add are just fantastic, that's why it all looks so real. Lets just hope poor grandma doesn't have a need for the water shut offs!
