Well, it’s official! I am finally done with our master bathroom!
Good thing that only took us forever!
It was way more work than we had originally planned, but definitely worth it in the end! I’m pretty much in love!
First, maybe I should remind you what it looked like when we first moved in.
The previous owner was a custom wood worker and built these cabinets. Which were beautiful. But with everything else going on in the room, you couldn’t really appreciate them.
Cute. And hideous built-in above the toilet.
Dontcha just love when people paint doors and window frames crazy colors? Arrrrg!
At first, I was scared to paint all of the wood trim. I love wood. And I was scared what would happen if I painted it and then regretted it. There’s really no turning back.
So…I did this.
Wah. Wah. Wah.
I cried. Like, literally cried into Ryan’s chest. It was so awful.
The paneling in-between the trim is not actually dry wall. The previous owner took out the drywall and replaced it with some pre-fab kinda paneling. But it also wasn’t regular paint. It was some crazy, shiny shellac type paint. So, when I painted it (even after sanding and priming), the paint was just peeling right off.
And let’s not even mention how horrible the wood trim looked with the white!
It was tragic.
But…my husband and Pinterest saved the day.
You read that right. My husband had the next brilliant idea!
So, we went all Joanna Gaines and got to work!
$40 later and some tongue and groove shiplap, and we were back in business!
We removed the painful light fixtures, took off the skinnier, darker trim around the thick wood trim, painted, stapled, glued, trimmed and more painting – and I give you our new Farmhouse Bathroom!
It’s so clean and bright, I never want to leave!
All the walls and trim got a fresh coat (or 7) of white paint.
The shiplap wall is a light gray; subtle, but just enough to be an accent wall.
The window also went white (and rightfully so!) and got a light, airy linen roman shade.
We also trimmed out the mirrors so we couldn’t see the raw edges anymore. ick!
Goodbye painful chandelier and matching sconces!
Hello hand painted and simple accents that make me smile!
This box was actually the front of a kid easel that I ripped off before throwing the rest in the trash. A fresh coat of paint, some tin pans, and a couple random accents I grabbed at TJ Max, and my heart is officially swooning!
Simple towel storage since the Space Ship doesn’t have any hooks.
Yup. in. love.
I can’t stop walking in here just to stare at it all.
Such a process, but so worth it!
Here’s a little side by side because, well.. it’s necessary!
Thanks for coming! I’m going to soak in the tub now!
