Our bathroom makeover isn't 100% complete, but I am too excited to wait any longer to share it with you! Come take a look inside my Farmhouse Chic master bathroom.
Here is what it looked like before. Carpet on the floors, plain white walls and yucky gold fixtures.
The only thing I liked about this bathroom was the big soaker tub in the corner and the double sinks.
The first thing we did was to paint. We chose a blue-ish grey color called Icicles. We painted 3/4 of the wall from the ceiling down and left the bottom 1/4 white. A white chair railing was put all around.
Then we ripped out the nasty carpet and laid down vinyl tiles. It looks so much better! Stained barnwood trims out the bathtub and adds such a pretty, rustic look.
There were no medicine cabinets and since we were doing all of this on a very small budget, we decided to stain some pallet pieces and make floating shelves to hang and use for storage. I got Mason Jar soap dispensers from World Market instead of making them myself. I think it actually saved me some money doing it that way. Clearly I have way more stuff than Cody!
We used pieces of pallet and barnwood where we could. The toilet paper holder was painted white and distressed and then screwed onto a piece of pallet. It's much sturdier now.
We took another piece of pallet and added an old hook to it. These act as towel holders for both sinks. I made stain using vinegar and steel wool and I love the way it made the wood turn a pretty grey.
Of course I had fun accessorizing and put my little white crate to use as a wash cloth holder on the back of the toilet. A jar of white hydrangeas is the perfect farmhouse touch.
Cody painted the cabinets white and distressed them. I got the knobs for 50% off at Hobby Lobby.
I love taking baths and always like to have as little light as possible. My vintage mirrored tray has candles to be lit and a romantic book bundle sitting on it. It will also be the perfect place to set a glass of wine!
It has been so much fun putting this bathroom together. We have done our best to keep costs down and I think we did a pretty good job.
My candle chandelier has been looking for a home of its own since I got it a few years ago for Christmas. This bathroom makeover was inspired by it and I think that I created the perfect place for it!
The wall above the bathtub will soon have crates for towel storage and we still need to stain and put up the trim along the floor. But for now, I am loving it just like this.
I will probably put up some more decorations and of course when I do, I will show you those too.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my new Farmhouse Chic bathroom!
