I wish I could take credit for the design of this bathroom.
It’s fancy and not fancy and laid out perfectly and has beautiful finishes and things that sparkle and shine and it’s easy to clean and full of light.
But I didn’t have much to do with it.
It came with the house.
I simply tweaked it a little and added a few new things and wiped down this faucet and farmhoused it up a bit.
Just to make it my own.
Here’s the view into the bathroom.
Originally the room had two doors. There was the door you see at the front of the picture.
(total aside: please tell me you love that crystal knob as much as I do.)
Back where the left side of the sink is now, there was another door that led to a closet. The sink was smaller and NOT CUTE at all and super square and filled up the right side of the bathroom.
The family that bought it from my mother covered up the entrance to the closet (there’s still an entrance to that closet in the master bedroom) and put in this amazing vanity.
I love the storage.
There are two cabinets on each side and two drawers and two sinks.
My only addition is the two baskets under the sink.
The baskets are from IKEA years ago.
They are the ones from the old butler’s pantry turned around.
I added these labels I got at Pottery Barn years ago.
Super vintage farmhousy looking.
I just found this natural fiber rug at Hobby Lobby for the floor (if you use your 40% off coupon it will be around $20).
I was going to go with white—but I love the contrast against the white tile.
And the bathroom needed a little farmhouse on the floor.
When I was growing up, the floor in here was linoleum.
And not cute.
The tile is such a better choice.
There were towel bars on the side of the room, but we took them off and added the hooks and an apothecary sign above them.
I cannot tell you how happy these hooks make me.
I spent so much time trying to fold the towel and hang it correctly over the towel bar and make it look cute and it never, ever, ever really did.
With the hooks, you just toss the towel up there and go.
All those towel-folding minutes can be spent somewhere else. Like watching the Winter Hallmark movie countdown.
(total aside: When the Valentine countdown came on the other day, my husband rolled his eyes and asked if it ever ended. I hope not.)
The mirrors came with the house.
I couldn’t have picked out any that were cuter.
And the best part?
They angle down.
Perfect when you are height challenged and live in a world of mirrors designed for tall people.
And they reflect the light, too.
The bathroom has marble countertops.
And places to put these containers that were on my dressing table in the farmhouse.
I forget where they came from, but I just saw the cutest containers at WalMart.
So here it is.
It was all ready to go and just needed a little farmhouse to make it feel like mine.
It reminds me of Kentucky every time I walk in.
Which only goes to prove.
You can take the girl out of the farmhouse….
….but you never really take the farmhouse out of the girl. 🙂
