Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover in One Weekend

When we moved in to this house, I remember sitting in it with all of our boxes (at 8 months pregnant) and thinking “what the hell did we just do”? I remember regretting this purchase and wanting to cry myself to sleep. Thankfully once we unpacked everything and started to fix things up, I began to fall in love with it like I did the first time I saw it. 

The problem was that no one took care of this house and it’s a shame because it has SO much potential. It was built in the early 1970’s, but it was built to resemble an 1800’s home. It has a gorgeous kitchen brick fireplace that extends nearly the entire wall and a gorgeous library wall in the living room. Things like that are exactly what I was looking for in a home…quirky things that made it OUR HOME. 

One thing I couldn’t stand? The main floor’s bathroom. It was horrific. I didn’t want to do anything to it because we are actually planning on demoing (is that a word?!) the area where the bathroom is and making it into a laundry room/mud room/large closet and a bathroom …. eventually. BUT, I couldn’t stand looking at it anymore. So, two weekends ago, we got down to business.

The major transformation here is the door and trim. All this bathroom needed was a nice fresh coat of paint. We painted the walls “Swiss Coffee” by Benjamin Moore and the trim is “simply white” by Benjamin Moore. The trim ended up needed 4 coats of paint even though the first two coats were primer. 

I really would love to replace the vanity with a cute little farmhouse vintage dresser but we will do that once we completely make this area over in a few years. For now, I just added in new light fixtures, a cute little crystal door knob and a few new accessories. The vase/pitcher was a find from IKEA (but this one is similar). I swear that store gets better and better every time I go. IKEA fan for life right here. The shabby chic mirror was a cheap score and I love the way it pulled this area together. 

My little horse friend (thanks to Minted) is my favorite part of this bathroom and I am in love with the white distressed frame that came along with him for the ride 😉
