A Vintage Lavabo for the Farmhouse Bathroom!

What do you do when you see something (in real life) that you have no hope of ever owning...
well, if you're make it in miniature!
And that's why I had to make an antique lavabo for the farmhouse bathroom.

Oh, how I'd love a real one! But I've never seen one here in NZ.

And here's a little peek through into the hallway behind the bathroom...there's more to see around the corner!

Thank you to all the wonderful people who took time to leave such lovely comments on the bathroom post. I'm thrilled that so many of you like it!


  1. Oooooh so pretty!!!! Great job!

  3. Gorgeous and perfect!!!

  4. Very cute Mercedes. Did you make the little basin? I love the scalloped edges.

  5. wow , this looks really good , clever girl !

  6. That is so beautiful! It is so true that this miniature hobby makes many wishes to come true. Only sky is the limit in this precious hobby <3 .
    Kind regards.

  7. This turned out great! I don't think I've ever seen one like this. I'm curious about your putting Roubaix on your sign. My great-grandmother was from there and I don't see it very often.

    1. Hello Dawn, I found the little sign somewhere on the web with the three places on it. I liked the look of the sign. I've always wondered about Roubaix - now I'll have to google it!

  8. Beautiful! Can't wait to peek behind the corner :)

  9. Not sensible at all...but utterly cute ;o)
    Lovely as your work always is
    Hugs, Rosanna

  10. Beautiful vitage lavabo, Mercedes!!!

  11. So gorgeous Mercedes.....beautiful.
    All the best

  12. Wow, that lavabo looks amazing! It fits the tapestry of the rest of the room quite well. Anyway, do you have further plans for your farmhouse bathroom? Keep us posted?

  13. I love your work. I am beginning to "remodel" a dollhouse. I was having trouble with the bathroom window showing from the from of the house. After reading this post…I know what to do :). Thank you for sharing your wonderful work!
