hello dear friends! we are excited to share our first completely finished room in our farmhouse here in tennessee! this is our main bathroom that gets lots of traffic especially by five pairs of tiny muddy feet coming in after playing at the creek. so we knew it was important for the space to be opened up a bit with a big tub for all the kiddos and we also wanted it to feel fresh, historic and eclectic similar to the way we have been renovating the rest of the home. we teamed up with wayfair.com in this room (!) and were given the challenge alongside five other bloggers of renovating the entire space in less than 60 days with the budget of $2500. scroll down through the post for details on how we did it and find links to the products we chose at the very bottom...
so here's a little reminder of what it looked like before...
and here are a few in-progress photos. we did it all on our own which is our favorite part... the kids even helped out with demo and painting. it is always important to us that they feel they are a key part of making our house a home instead of being an imposition to the process. we hope they have sweet memories of donny and i working together, seeing that hard work and good communication can produce a beautiful outcome.
and... are you ready??!!! here is the finished bathroom below!
we installed white beadboard on the walls and ceiling and penny tile on the floor so it felt clean and timeless paired with the antique vanity we found at a local salvage shop. the brass wayfair fixtures and black tile grout anchor the mostly white space and we also brought in a dash of color with the vintage turkish rug.
we ripped out the 90's lighting and replaced it with these lovely brass sconces from schoolhouse electic. donny also knocked out two walls that had enclosed a little closet to make room for the larger tub and to allow the room to be more spacious. he built the shelf to the right of the tub as well as made the plant hanger out of salvaged wood. (he's pretty much the sweetest most handy creative dreamboat of a husband ever.) the painting was my grandmothers reminding us of the beautiful texas bluebonnets we used to run through every summer on their property and the antique books are some from our collection of favorite children's classics.
we are so pleased with how it turned out! we had a wonderful experience working with wayfair and highly recommend everything we selected and have just been so impressed with their thoughtful company in general. you can find the exact items we used from wayfair's below:
