Farmhouse Style Guest Bath Reveal

4.13.2015

I am so excited to finally reveal the guest bathroom that we worked so hard on to transform from dark and dated to light and bright. I shared several progress posts over the last several weeks and I never expected this to take so long. The last hold up was waiting on the bath faucet and shower kit to come in that had to be special ordered to fit the existing plumbing. What was supposed to take a week to come in took almost four weeks, but it's in and all is good now. So are you ready? There are lots of photos from different angles since this is a tiny room with no window for natural light.


We used beadboard planks and trim from Home Depot and installed it high.

Of course my favorite change is the basket weave tile floor.

I placed my old chippy stool in here to hold an enamelware pail.....

...which holds some things my guests may need.

A red ticking shower curtain with ruffles continues the farmhouse feel

as it hangs from a shiny new rod.

I never knew I could love a white tub so much and the new faucet kit is shiny and bright.

A thick bath mat with ruffled trim for my guests to step on after a nice hot shower.

Thick and thirsty white towels with black trim and a monogram hang close by on brass hooks.

The red Antiques sign adds a pop of color on the neutral walls.

I used hooks instead of a towel bar.

I reframed the art that was in here before with a cheap frame from Hobby Lobby.

I just love the vintage appeal of this print and the little boy's face.

Polished nickel faucet and a new black granite vanity top (both from Home Depot) with sink add some sparkle.



Here's some nice hand wash I bought in Savannah.

A new light, mirror and hand towel ring in polished nickel.

A vintage French torchon is ready to dry wet hands.

This is what the light looks like since I can't get a shot of it in this dark bathroom.

Newly painted cabinets and new polished nickel handles.

Oh, and we can't forget the new white throne also from Home Depot.


After everything was done and the decorative touches had been added we were admiring our work.

 I have to thank Mr. Savvy for all the hard work he did as my carpenter, electrician, plumber, tile layer and help with the painting. I could not have even thought about beginning this project without his help! Good thing I married a handyman!

Wall color: Revere Pewter
Beadboard and trim: Chantilly Lace

Have an awesome week!

  22. Hard to believe it's the same room....really turned out well. Where did you find that shower curtain?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am wondering, since colors can be deceiving and this item is on clearance, so no returns, is the red a dark or bright red and is the other color cream or white? Sorry...but if I order I can't return it if it's wrong. Thank you!!

      Delete
    2. It is a regular cherry red and the white is more ivory.

  23. Very Fabulous Kim! I think I love everything you did in the bathroom-great job!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Beautiful makeover, Kim! However, why did you choose brass hooks when the light fixture and faucets are brushed nickel?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Nancie, I actually bought those before I chose the polished nickel fixtures. I was going to paint them black and then decided to just leave them. I don't mind mixed metals and the bathroom is a farmhouse style and a farmhouse would probably have lots of mismatched stuff. thanks

  25. Kim, it really does look amazing. Love your beautiful finishes, so classic and your accessories are perfect.

  26. Absolutely gorgeous Kim!! I love everything, All the new finishes, tile, colors and decor!!

  30. Great job on the bathroom! Love it all. One small suggestion to consider: A few years ago I began to use two shower curtains instead of just one...it gives the space a really nce look...especially with that curtain, which I just love!

    ReplyDelete

    1. Ann, this one shower curtain is all I need in this tiny space. The door is open in front of the tub so another curtain is pointless. I also have to keep this open to allow the light over the tub to help light the room. Thanks

  32. This is just the cutest little bathroom ever! You guys did such an amazing job. I love the shower curtain and antiques sign, the fixtures and linens, and that floor is swoon worthy. Oh, heck, I just love everything, even the pump soap sitting in the cute white dish. Darling! I wish I could transport everything to my own house. :)

  44. I was REALLY looking forward to today's post. I've been following your makeover the whole time and I was excited to see the final reveal! It is fantastic. I adore so many of the elements you incorporated into the room. I love the faucet fixture and the shower curtain. I am going to take a look at the Tuesday Morning near my home to see if they carry that fabulous bathmat (although they all carry different things). In addition, the little stool with the pail really adds extra charm to the entire space. Great job! Your hard work (and the hard work of Mr. Savvy) really paid off.
    Best,

  47. So. Cute. Kim.
    Love everything about it, that tile is delicious and the chippy stool with the enamelware bowl is darling. I have one similar and I love what you did with yours!! I know what it's like to have a room with zero natural light. You took lovely pictures. Congrats on the fab new room (and nice work Mr. Savvy!!)

  48. This is a true beauty!!! I adore the upscale farmhouse look Kim. And your signature touch of red in the ruffled shower curtain is darling! What an inspiration!!! Kudos to you and Mr Savvy!

  52. Holey Moley what a super job by both you and your husband!! Can you all just pick up that little room and move it south to my house please?? I could just take out the kids' bath and put yours in place of it. Love it all!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  53. It looks amazing!! Well done both of you. It looks so light and fresh. Love the pops of red and the reframed print looks really high end. Could you spare Mr. Savvy for a couple of weeks and pop him on the first plane to Ireland? I need my bathroom redoing!

    ReplyDelete
  54. What a great job you both did! It looks fresh and your guests are definitely going to enjoy it.
