A New Vintage Mirror in the Bathroom

I recently switched out our bathroom mirror with a “new” vintage mirror. The mirror we’ve had in there for the last few years was re-purposed from our old house, and while it worked well I felt like the bathroom was lacking a bit of character. I wasn’t totally sure how this would turn out, but…

Hints of Pink and Blue in a Cottage Bathroom

Easy Rustic Step Stool

Last week I shared an update on the mini bathroom makeover I’ve been working on in our boys room. I painted the vanity and knobs then re-hung the mirror. Today I am showing you the rustic step stool I built using scrap lumber and a jigsaw. I followed a set of plans from Ana-White, but modified them slightly based…

Seeing Green: Painted Bathroom Vanity

It’s time for a mini makeover update! I love being able to get a custom look for less, thus the reason I DIY all of the things! This painted bathroom vanity really changed the feeling of this room, and took hardly any time at all. I took an inexpensive all in one bathroom vanity that…

Mini Makeover: The Boys Cottage Bathroom

I know I’ve committed to the One Room Challenge for the next 5 weeks, but there is another little space that I have slowly been putting together, and that is the Boys Cottage Bathroom. It’s just a 2 piece powder room, but we really haven’t touched it since moving the boys upstairs almost 2 years ago.…

Fun with Flowers

Garden Flowers: daisies, snap dragons, cedar, marigolds, lambs ears, poplar, chives, white mystery flower Last week I had the pleasure of co-hosting a wedding shower for some lovely brides, which meant I got to have  a little fun with flowers. I had planned to grab some grocery store bunches, but the day ended up being…

Our Cottage Style Family Bathroom Details

I realized there have been some projects making their way off the list in our Main Bathroom. So I thought it would be fun to share some progress with you all today. We opted to build a “Cottage Style Family Bathroom” vs. an ensuite. The existing house has a small bathroom with a stand up shower,…

Tall White Cottage Cabinet {DIY}

On Wednesday we spent time building some much needed storage. My goodness does it feel wonderful to have a place to put some things away! We finished all of the built ins in our Master Bedroom Closet, and finally built this little guy for the bathroom 🙂 I love having a place to display a…

Reclaimed Pallet Wall

A long while back {about 2 years ago}I shared some snippets of a reclaimed pallet wall I started while Matt was away working. It occurred to me that I never shared the finished project, so I thought I would go ahead and take care of that today. There were all kinds of ugly happening in the…

Our Cottage Style Family Bath

If you would like to see more about this room click here I had so much fun choosing the finishes for this bathroom. There are of course details to be finished {my catchphrase} but things are relatively in the home stretch! I wanted to really give this room a feminine cottage feel while still allowing it…

We have a toilet!

When I last shared some progress shots of the bathroom, things were hardly looking bathroom-ish. We installed some  wall board, drywall and pine tongue and groove, which essentially left the room prepped! Things have changed just a bit since then 🙂 It is starting to look like a bathroom! I am always nervous to see…

Family Bath Inspiration and Source List

I am SO excited for our new bathroom! Not only will we have a tub for the first time in over 2 years, but we will also have more then one toilet in our house! Not to mention, this will be the first time we have ever had an en suite off our bedroom. I…

Boys Bath Inspiration Board

The boys half bath is coming along nicely. We are nearly ready for paint… and then that means flooring, fixtures and lights! I thought I would put together a mood board to show you what I am planning for that space. I already have their vanity, lighting and floor tile. I still need to choose…

Bathroom Inspired Board

Well, things are slowly coming to a finished (for now) place in our little bathroom makeover. I am hoping to get the storage tower built  and painted this week, and then I think I will call it a wrap. I decided to put together a little inspiration board with a few things I tracked down…

Remember when I started gutting the bathroom….

Remember back in January when I posted about updating our bathroom… and I started covering the walls with reclaimed wood? And I built a little farmhouse vanity and drew pictures of built ins, and floor plans… All while my husband was away? And then he came home, and he was willing to move the toilet…

Updating our Cottage Bath- Part 1

If you are anything like me, it’s all about the reveal… I mean sure, it’s nice to know how ugly something was so I can be really bedazzled by your mad skills… but, ultimately I really enjoy 1000 shots of the afters, with close up vignettes of all the cute things.Furniture and cabinetry is the…
