Our shower has a bench seat and 3 shelves made out of the same granite slab.
When we added on the bedroom in the fall of 2009 the carpenters took off the vinyl siding and the OLD pressed board siding and revealed this - the original cedar siding.
We really liked the look but the boards were in bad shape so we got new cedar siding and put that over the old stuff. I sanded the siding to get it semi smooth and put a coat of semi gloss varnish on it so I can wipe off dust easily.
We put the cedar siding on the old exterior walls so we have a 16 foot wall of cedar and then a short 5 foot wall of cedar. But I think the best part of both rooms are the ceilings! Here is the bedroom with the barn lights installed.
And here is the bathroom.
