JACQUI NORMAN
UNWILLING TO ENDURE THE EXPENSE
and effort of a major bath remodel, Jacqui
Norman decided to have fun with a creative
cosmetic makeover. Jacqui updated the sink
and faucet and retiled the countertop. Then
she brushed the vanity with a fresh coat of
paint to match her 1950s green tub. Green-
glass tile squares accent a new slate floor
that she and her husband, Andy, created
by cutting up a salvaged schoolhouse
chalkboard. Bold poppy towels and new
pendant lights tie into the new bath’s bright
retro style. “You can work with existing
features when you give it a little thought,”
says Jacqui. —DENACARPENTER
