Pipes in the bathroom (of course!)


I'm on a pipe kick... here's a set of bathroom fixtures by Roman and Williams, used in the Ace Hotel Portland. A hook, a towel bar, and a toilet paper holder. The glossy black finish elevates it to a less raw, more finished piece.

Oh my! I love this. I especially love the lighting they create, and some of the shelving and furniture is to good. I'm really starting to like Steampunk, thanks for introducing it to me.

I love this too!

I never realized my taste is steampunk. My husband and I combine retro and industrial so that goes hand-in-hand with steampunk

What kind of coating did you use for the ultra glossy black finish?

I did this for my shower curtain. To get the glossy black finish, I recommend epoxy enamel. It comes in a spray can. It's also known as appliance paint. It covered the pipes really well.

Be sure to let the paint cure before you attempt to put shower curtain rings on it! It needs 24 to 48 hours to cure good and hard!

I'd upload a picture of it if I could. Looks brilliant with my opulent crimson red shower curtain!

I'd love to see this, yo_jehle, if you'd like to email it to the email address at the top left...

Target has a very nice selection of oil rubbed bronze & similar shower curtains that are very reasonably priced. The color of it goes nicely with the red silk drape that I use as a door for my workshop :-) Their shabby chic stuff is more "classic victorian" but mix it with the right metal and its gorgeous!
