Farmhouse Master Bathroom Reveal

Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover Reveal

The day has finally come! I am over-the-moon excited to finally share our master bathroom makeover. We are DONE! This project started back in October and I can hardly believe it’s finally finished. We’ve worked so hard for six long months, with plenty of setbacks and obstacles, but it was all worth it to see my vision for a vintage farmhouse bathroom come to life. And I have to say, I am so in love with the finished result and I hope you love it too. All sources will be listed at the end of this post.

I’m going to build the suspense here and start with the before photos. You have to see where we began when this project started. Smack dab in the middle of 1987!

Yep. You get the idea, it was bad. Very bad. Now to a few progress shots….ripping out the tiny shower and the moldy jetted tub.

We literally gutted this bathroom down to the subfloor. Everything was gone. The dirty tile. The gold light fixtures. The old vanities. The brown trim. Everything. I wish I had more progress photos to share, but at least now you have an idea of where we started….let’s move on to the fun part!

Farmhouse Bathroom Vanity and Farmhouse Light

Ta-da! Cue happy dance!

Can you believe this is the same bathroom? It feels sooo much bigger now. And so light and airy. When we started this project and I began to plan out the vision I had for our bathroom, I always dreamt of French provincial dressers used as vanities. I’m so thankful we were able to actually make that vision come to life, but it wasn’t easy. I had to search long and hard for both of these dressers. And that process slowed our project down big time. We obviously needed two dressers, but different measurements for each one. Plus they had to look like they belonged together. It was a tough search, but I was determined to find exactly what I wanted–even if it took months. We ended up finding both of these dressers on Craigslist and boy did that waiting pay off. (Check out my tutorial for transforming these dressers into vanities here.)

Both dressers are painted with Annie Sloan Pure White chalk paint. (**see this post for an important update on how the chalk paint is holding up 1 year later**) For my vanity, which is pictured above, we were able to put the vessel sink off to the side–leaving plenty of space for me to do my hair, makeup and all the things. I LOVE it.

How awesome are these light fixtures!? I looked at numerous places before I found these on Amazon. We added the white board behind the light to cover up a few holes that were left from the old light fixture that was here before. It was actually a disaster, so the board helped cover that mess perfectly and I think it adds a little something to the light itself. Easy fix!

We ordered the vessel sink and the faucet from Amazon. You can find the faucet here and the sink here.

Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover Vintage Dresser Vanities

The mirrors are from Home Goods. When we purchased them each mirror had a gold border on the outer edge. I actually painted that border with the Pure White to pretty it up a bit and make it match the vanities. I love how it adds a bit more dimension to the mirror and contrasts with the paint color, which is Smokestack by Behr.

The towel racks are both from Hobby Lobby. I love how they have a little extra storage on top.

This shelving unit is also from Hobby Lobby, but I was so excited to find it on Amazon here. It’s actually really lightweight and was easy to hang. I love having a little extra storage in this spot. Now moving into the bath area.

I wish I could give you information on the tile we used. Unfortunately we purchased it on sale from a local shop and I don’t have any of the boxes left. On top of that I forgot to write down the name or any info about the tile. Baaaad blogger. And bad homeowner. I even called the tile shop to get the name of it and they no longer sell it. Oy! Our goal was to have tile that looked like wood, so that’s what we went with for the flooring.

Let me introduce you to my new soaker tub. This baby is deep and holds a ton of water. So much better than the old, moldy jetted-tub that was here before. Plus it’s more narrow, so it really helped make this space feel bigger.

My father-in-law made these floating shelves. I love them in this spot! He followed the Shanty-2-Chic tutorial, you can find that here. I used a dark walnut stain, which adds a nice contrast with all the white and lighter colors.

My mother was kind of enough to let me have this vintage jar, which belonged to her mother years ago. It’s been used for all sorts of different things over decades of use, but now it’s here serving a new purpose in our bathroom. Just a simple example of why I love vintage decor. This little jar adds so much charm to our bathroom!

Curious about this cute little bathtub stool? It’s just your average barstool. I cut the lower half of the legs off and painted it white. Boom.

I also made these easy peasy farmhouse style curtains. And there was no sewing involved. Nada. Zip. The tutorial is here.

Farmhouse Master Bathroom Makeover Euroglass Shower

The shower transformation is one of my favorite parts of the makeover. Before it literally felt like you were taking a shower in a little, dark cave. And now, it’s so open and airy. I love this euroglass door, it’s so big! The light fixture here is from Amazon.

Well that’s it! The only part I left out was the toilet area, but there’s nothing fancy to see there. Here’s all the sources in case you’re curious about anything:

Please let me know if you have questions about anything. I’d love to hear what you think of our bathroom transformation. And thanks so much for stopping by! xoxo

  25. Looks great! Would love to paint my kitchen white but i’m scared of using chalk paint. Last time I used it on a project, it didnt turn out so well. The paint was cracking and even though I tried sanding it down, applied a coat of wax and tried to paint it again, the paint cracked again. Did you come across cracked paint? If so, do you know how to fix it?

          No, that’s the correct color Kelly. It’s a bit darker in person that it looks in these photos. And the trim/wainscoating is pure white!

            The smokestack is a bit dark. If I were to do it over again I probably wouldn’t choose that color–especially since we don’t have much natural light in here. And those towel racks from Hobby Lobby are kind of old, so that might be why you haven’t found them. And the color is Ultra Pure White by Behr.

    Sarah, did you attach the light fixture to a white board for any reason other than it is decorative? I have a light fixture not centered and trying to find an idea to make a new fixture work. Thanks! Your bathroom is gorgeous!!

    Posted 7.20.16 Reply
    • Sarah wrote:

      We put the white board on the wall for that exact reason! It wouldn’t have been centered on the wall otherwise. The board allowed us to move it over slightly with the wiring going through the board and to the original hole. Plus there was a large hole where the old light was and we didn’t want to deal with repairing that, to be honest. So the white board worked perfectly to fix both issues. Good luck with yours!

      They are textured walls. You can paint over wallpaper, but it’s never looked very good in my experience. You probably need to peel it off then maybe re-texture the walls…But you can always give paint a try first and see if you like it!

But at least I wore real clothes for a little while, right?! That counts for something! 🤣 Happy Sunday guys!! http://liketk.it/2AxyR #liketkit @liketoknow.it
