Being ever on the lookout for bits and pieces for my retro modern master bathroom remodel — I spend a lot of time hunting around on ebay. Imagine how thrilling it was to find this beautiful Satin Glide metal bath cabinet — complete with the coordinating mirror, cosmetic box and light combination. After picking my jaw up off the floor — I contacted the ebay seller — tjmoon — who kindly gave us permission to feature these photos.
You may recall, Pam added a 1963 catalog of Satin Glide vanities to her collection last year, and loaded the pages online as an archival reference. But now here is a good lookin’ Satin Glide with all the parts — spotted in the wild, in terrific shape. 🙂
I’ve written about Hall-Mack Relaxation Units before — but looking back at some old stories on the blog, I was reminded that Satin Glide — a maker of steel bathroom vanities <– see 1963 brochure here — also made this nifty recessed bathroom cubby that ensured… you would never be bored while you… went about your business.Heck yeah there is more →
1960, I love you. I recently heard from reader Lynn, who has just bought a 1960 brick ranch house that includes some great original features — like this amazing laminate-covered vanity. She call it a “giraffe” or “leopard” pattern. I’ll call it “Wilma Flintstone’s”. Luv. Read on for Lynn’s story and 6 more photos of this rare and delicious time capsule bathroom.
Now here is some serous vintage bathroom porn: Satin Glide bathroom vanities, medicine cabinets, shelving — and even a Relaxion Unit to compete with Hall-Mack — all from a 1963 brochure. We see these metal vanities occasionally — I do not know if they really held up well to the humidity in a bathroom. We also see slanted wood vanities like this — like in Chris and Angela’s 1964 bathroom. Heck yeah there is more →
