Bright yellow or red would have been nice. Just for the tub though, not the sink.

That is great, a lot of the items are coming from the parents and grand parents. I am the first generation in America so therefore I don't have that chance.

I like the "almost dead tree" look. It gives a rustic feeling.

Only for important events such as graduation, new job, and other once in a life time experiences. Otherwise I don't like celebrating for myself. Making an event or something for another person is a different story though, especially when the person appreciates the effort.

Till Konneker has done a similar project that is more appropriate for adults I would say. He custom built a type of black box to increase storage in his house without compromising the aesthetic. A simpler project to do as well for people with limited space. Here is the link for some pictures

Indeed the first board is amazing. I like the mid-century feel it gives. I definitely can imagine it in my room rather than in a child's room.

I don't normally like marble on its own, but it is a completely different story when it is mixed up with wood.

The decision should be based on the type of look and furnitures you are aiming for. So before taking them off, go through magazines and blogs to find out all the possibilities with and without. Create yourself a "mood board", then you'll know if it it worth taking them off or not.

I am actually doing it, but mainly because I am afraid that it catches fire... I am a little paranoid...

It looks like an upgrade of a student apartment. I like it though. Quite cozy.

This is a nice make over. My eyes were mainly fixed on the upper part. Using reclaimed wood or things is always great as it give a sense of uniqueness. Taking off the cabinets for shelves is a good idea as well; it reminds me the loft of David Karp, the founder of Tumblr. You'll find some pictures here if you guys are interested:
