Recently I put together some small bathroom ideas which I planned to put into action in our main floor bathroom renovation… but, recently, we ran into a problem… you see, the only place we can get our planks for our planked walls cut is at Home Depot – and their saw broke. (Wah!) We’re waiting on the saw to be up and running again to finish the project and move forward with the renovation.
In the meantime, we went ahead and started tackling our second floor bath – or the ‘Master Bathroom’ if you will. I know – talk about jumping into another project! We actually have a few renos going on simultaneously throughout the house right now. We’ve been at this renovation for almost two years and we are so ready to be done with the big stuff. Can you blame me?
Here’s some pictures of the bathroom in it’s current condition:
Let me tell you a little bit about the ‘Palm Tree Room’… When we first moved in, it not only had palm tree wallpaper and co-ordinating colours… but it also came with:
A palm tree night light
A palm tree bath rug
A palm tree garbage can
A palm tree toilet seat cushion (ew)
A palm tree toilet rug
A toilet seat soap dispenser set
I’m a little sick of palm trees.
As always, we plan to complete this renovation on a dime. A little paint goes a long way.
Here are some are some inspirational photos to go along with our master bathroom design plan for this room:
Paint the bottom of our clawfoot tub black – Stealth Jet by Behr.
I’ve always loved the look of a black clawfoot – so I’m excited about this project! I will have a post about this in the near future.
Paint the walls a warm off-white – Swiss Coffee by Behr.
We currently have one coat of this colour on the walls, and what a pretty, pretty white… In our next home I may choose to use this on the trim throughout. This is my FIRST time painting and designing a white room, so I’m a little nervous – but excited for the design challenge!
Paint the Bottom of the vanity Litchfield Gray – Benjamin Moore
Our current vanity in the bathroom is a not-so-pretty stain. It’s a quality vanity though, so to save money I’m just going to paint it! I think this colour will add a nice dimension to the room.
Replace the top of the vanity with wood.
Making over the existing vanity is something else I’m very excited about. I think the combination of Litchfield Gray with the stained wood countertop is going to add the perfect amount of warmth to this white space.
Add an antique-style wood carved mirror.
This mirror is from Wicker Emporium – I purchased it a few weeks ago intending for it to go in the main floor bathroom, but it was too big… not a problem! Turns out, it’s perfect for upstairs!
Paint the floor a medium grey.
The floors in here are awful… the colours are tan, orange-y, and green… the previous owners’ intention was to take colours from the wallpaper in their floor choice… which was palm tree themed. I’ve painted floors before, so I will be giving a step-by-step tutorial on how I did it when it’s completed.
Replace the chandelier with a beaded chandelier.
Remember the beaded chandelier I made for the foyer? It ended up being way too low from the ceiling, so I switched it out shortly after. Additionally, the beads that came in the mail didn’t have the finish that was shown in the tutorial where I sourced them. I plan to hang the chandler and just run a brush through the beads, spinning as I go. My mom things this sounds beyond tedious. Maybe. But I intend to use that chandelier in this house if it’s the last thing I do! (Dramatic?)
Add a large cabinet for storage.
In this bathroom we have removed the medicine cabinet as well as the cabinet above the toilet – this leaves an issue of storage for every day items. I want to find a second-hand cabinet to paint or distress that I may take the doors off of for easy access. The current vanity has storage underneath, but mostly cleaning supplies… so I may switch that out to a cabinet since we don’t reach for those items daily.
We plan to have a bit of a coastal theme with the decor as we do throughout the rest of the farmhouse, but that will come later on. I plan to post tutorials and makeovers throughout these renovations in the home, so be sure to stay tuned!
