It’s humorous; when guests visit my home these days, we make our way to the bathroom first…even before a cup of tea is served! I will not lie, I L-O-V-E my new bathroom. It really reflects my style: a little vintage, a bit o’modern, a dose of rustic, a tad unexpected, just enough feminine, and a whole bunch of casual elegance. (Who am I kidding! I would better describe myself as indecisive!)
Anyway…here it is! The pictures don’t do it justice since there’s no natural light in that bath. I’m so proud of it, though,and so thankful for my sweet Preacher who worked some really late nights to get our DIY project put together!
My favorite part of the bath remodel is definitely the vanity. The Preacher and I painstakingly searched out this antique treadle sewing machine base, and created a knotty pine top for the vessel sink. I think the distressed finish ultimately worked out for this space, don’t you?
After the travertine and pebble floor was sealed, all the rich colors of the natural stone came out. I love how the pebbles look like a bath mat, but hide all the traffic!
After much inspiration on Pinterest, I decided to stencil the wall. You will recall that this was not truly a stencil, as much as a template I traced, then painted with a brush. Don’t look too closely–the lines are definitely not perfectly even! The color was chosen because it was in the reject/clearance section I came upon at Walmart. We always get Behr paint from Home Depot, but this little pint just called out to me, and I went with it. The color is Native Turquoise from Better Homes and Gardens.
And…how about $10 for a light fixture! This little chandelier was a pink and white chandy I purchased on clearance at Target two children ago, when I was convinced I’d have a baby girl…sooner or later. It was still sitting in my closet, two children later, and spray painted buttery yellow–fit perfectly in this little space. A pop of whimsy and bold color.
The framed print on the ledge is also a holdover from my little-girl-room-saving stash.
