I love color. But for some reason I have always wanted a neutral bathroom. Every time I see one in a magazine or on TV I drool at the creams, tans, browns, whites all together to create a warm but bright relaxing space. I wanted my bathroom to feel vintage but not old fashioned. I love mixing new with old. I love adding funky or unexpected decor in with antique pieces.
***My camera lens was damaged and it won’t focus like it should. Some shots are decent but sorry for the graininess of some. Also, it was evening and the sun was going down so the lighting is all over the place! I am hoping to get some better shots today and add them to the mix***
I am so happy with how it turned out!
This clock may look familliar. It usually hangs in my dining room. I just didn’t have it in me to put the $5 plastic clock back up that was in here before. This one looks so much better. I guess I need to come up with something for the dining room wall!!!
These door knobs are from this house. There were so many doors when we moved in! There was a door to the kitchen, a door to the stairs, a door to the hallway. Pretty much everything had a door! We took a lot of them down so the flow was easier and more open. That left me with extra doors AND extra knobs. Now they are hooks for towels!! Door knob how to’s
This medicine cabinet was my dad’s. It was already old when he got it. He used it out in our barn. It had all the horse medicine in it :) I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE using things that have deep personal meaning when I decorate. This would have been a cool find anyway but it is even more awesome because of the history.
I didn’t do anything to the vanity this time around. I fixed it up a couple of years ago and you can read about how I added molding and new hardware to the original 1938 vanity and how I cut a hole in the floor for a laundry shoot.
The mirror!!! I am so in love with my mirror :) I had a plain Jane, builder’s grade mirror. I did love that it had oodles of storage and that I could fold the side one a little and see the back of my head when curling my hair. So I didn’t want to get rid of it. I just wanted to dress it up! Check out the full tutorial.
I love the rounded ceiling of the shower/bath tub! It is so fun and unique. But I didn’t love the way my shower curtain was attached to the rod. So I cut off the grommits and sewed (yes, I SEWED) a pocket for the rod. It is basically like a regular window curtain. I just thought it made for a cleaner look. And it is less. . . industrial?
The only thing I am not in live with are the glass shades on the light fixture above the mirror. They are yellowish and come off as dingy. I found some fabulous seeded glass shades online but that will have to wait until I have more money.
