In 2015, we started the very first renovation on our farmhouse bungalow which included the guest bathroom. Here’s what that renovation included:
- Updating the oak trim.
- Removing the teal tile and replacing it with a beautiful grey linen look tile.
- Painting the oak vanity using Rust-Oleum’s Cabinet Transformations.
- Installing stone countertops.
- Updating the cabinet hardware, as well as the fixtures.
- New toilet.
Shortly after this renovation was complete, I had baby numero uno followed by baby number two and this is how our bathroom remained for the next 5 years. Yes, FIVE years!
What a difference, hey? The changes we made really brightened up the space. And, I was so happy to see that tile go! Although, without any decor we unable to fully appreciate the upgrades. Time for decor!
Drum roll please… here is our modern farmhouse bathroom makeover reveal!
Isn’t she lovely?! I am so happy with the way it turned out and the fact that it is finally complete!
Now, let’s break it all down.
Houston, we have a mirror! I can’t believe we used that tiny mirror propped up in the corner for 5 whole years.
The mirror was one of the biggest challenges for me. I was determined to ditch the builder grade mirror so I searched and searched and searched for a mirror that worked with our left aligned sink. Every time my search fell flat.
I decided to give the whole ‘frame a builder grade mirror’ thing a try and it worked! Not only was it pretty straight forward to do, it was also very cost effective compared to purchasing a new mirror. And, with the exposed corner brackets it gives the space the modern farmhouse feel I was going for.
Although this bathroom serves as the only guest bathroom on our main floor, it is mainly used by the kids so as you can see I was a little playful with my design.
I made these shelves using a project panel from Rona and brackets from my local Dollarama (here are some similar brackets). I cut the 8″ x 36″ project panel in half to give me two 18″ shelves. Once they were cut, I sanded, stained and poly’d them. If you have left over stain and can get your hands on some Dollarama brackets, these two shelves will only cost you roughly $15 all together. Ahhmazing, right?!
THE TOWEL WALL
This has to be the best view in our modern farmhouse bathroom! I just can’t get enough of these oversized bath portraits of the kids when they were babes. Aren’t they adorable?
I purchased two IKEA Ribba frames for $20 each and ordered the photos as engineer prints from Staples for less than $3 each. So, for less than $50 you can make a huge impact in your bathroom.
Beside the frames, I hung two IKEA hooks for the kids towels. This allowed me to get the towels off the back of the door for a much cleaner look. And, the kids feel so special having their own hook.
I had a ton of fun designing this bathroom and completing each DIY project. Now, when I walk into our modern farmhouse bathroom I feel happy. Isn’t it amazing how much of an impact our space can have on us?
