Farmhouse Bathroom Remodel Reveal

Today’s the day! WAHOO! Yes, I’m excited and yes, I can show you the final product of all our work in our one and only bathroom.

Now, for those of you just stopping in, I’d like to take a minute to catch you up to speed. My family and I are remodeling our house (again) and our latest project was our master bedroom, and sort of at the same time our soon-to-be farmhouse bathroom over the last year (while also having babies and a grand ol’ time).

When we bought our home in 2003, this is what the bathroom looked like. In case you’re wondering, this is a scanned and uploaded photo, so you could get the full effect. Now I am really dating myself. ahem.

Cast iron green bathtub with matching green commode, glass shower doors, 3″ creamy white square tiles on the bottom and 1″ white with gold square tiles on top. Berber carpet on the floor, clear corrugated plexiglass type drop ceiling, an indoor/outdoor light complete with outlet attached, and a single mirrored medicine cabinet. Oh yeah, total room for improvement.

First makeover included painting upper tiles dark maroon and the ceiling panels and grids white, added green floor tile, plus mirror and light fixtures, and took out the shower doors.

Second makeover, yanked out the tub and toilet for new fiberglass tub with surround, and put in new floor tile. (another uber old scanned picture)

It wasn’t until a couple years later I painted the upper tile a soft green and changed up the decor. This picture shows after we already tore down the ceiling and getting into gutting it from top to bottom.

Third times a charm, right? tsk.

Well, this time was for good because we needed to replace that window and we wanted a clean start, a GIGANTIC do over. All the details about the start of our project, including how we got a massively heavy tub in there are here, and the latest upgrades are all here. Take a minute and catch up…it’s a good read.

Are you ready? We are!!

A big gigantic shout-out to my hubby who is key to this happening, our kids who were patient as we worked, and my Lord for giving us the ability to take this project on to completion.

Welcome to our new bathroom…

Budget-Friendly Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

For the sake of understanding how this all came together, let me explain all the pieces to this fantastic puzzle.

Let’s start with the top. The ceiling was replaced with one sheet of wood beadboard and then set in a coffered setting with pine boards and trim. I could just sit and look at it forever. So much better than that corrugated plastic drop ceiling.

Now for our vanity…after a year or so of searching for the perfect fitting dresser, I found this treasure on Craigslist while taking a brain break during my stay in the NICU with our daughter. God has a sense of humor.

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

It fits like a glove in the tiny space we had allotted, and it came out just as I had envisioned it. You’d have to see the before to really appreciate it. Don’t worry, I have a plan for the old vanity. Nothing goes to waste around here!

Below the dresser is the freezer basket I showed you in my last post, that came from when our chest freezer died (also while in the NICU). I just buzzed the handles off with my Dremel and voila!

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

I sanded down the dresser top and then stained with one of my favorite stains by Varathane, Early American. We’ve used it on our bedroom faux beams and on our Pottery Barn knock-0ff as well. To finish it off with a die-hard topcoat, I used my new-found love, Waterlox in satin, that I mentioned in my previous post as well. Boy does this stuff work like a dream!

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

*affiliate links to my favorite products are included in this post so you can find them too! And many thanks for the product provided for our project from Hickory Hardware and eFaucets.

Our dresser did not have that backsplash prior to our retro-fit, but we felt it necessary to add it because our baseboard kept the vanity from fitting snugly against the wall, which caused it to set about a half-inch out. That would mean water spray going down there and possibly other goodies – with 6 kids you just never know.

The sink is from Home Depot and our brushed nickel faucet was purchased from eFaucets as mentioned in my previous post.

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

The cabinet I painted in a “seconds” paint from Home Depot, but it’s a nice charcoal/dark chocolate semi-gloss that really sets this piece apart from the rest of the room. I kept the pulls in their original aged state – gorgeous!

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

We were able to add drawer slides to the drawers from Hickory Hardware that not only made the drawers easier to open (most antique dresser drawers can be pretty rough), but also gave extra support we needed.

And who doesn’t love pink peonies in an antique blue ball jar…swoon…  These beauties were closed when I brought them in a little bit ago, but the warmth of our home caused them to open up so beautifully.

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpiecesThe mirror I kept from a custom order for a dresser-turned-media-console for a client and I love its dark color. Above it is my old farmhouse light fixture scored for a $1 at a garage sale and painted in a Antique Nickel spray paint by Rust-Oleum. Don’t you just love the frosted embossed globes? The before is in my previous bathroom post.

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

Beside the mirror is a recently thrifted vintage soap advertisement that perfectly suits the decor.

And on the other side was what my mom would call a “God wink”. I needed to purchase a toilet paper holder and refused to pay $20 for a single fixture. tsk – not when my kids could bust it in a day! I went in to Goodwill to try to find something else I needed, and there was a brushed nickel TP stand and a basket planter, perfect as a trash can.  All for about $5.

Now for the shower and tub. Gotta love the classic feel of white subway tile with gray grout. It’s so refreshing and crisp. Both the wall and floor tiles, and grout came from Home Depot. The paint is called Classic Gray by Glidden.

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

The tub fixture came from eFaucets through eBay as well. Isn’t that cross pattern handle perfect? For added fun, I just had to create a tub tray with a board of my barn wood and some old, rusty window sash handles from a set of curbside windows. Now all I need is the time for a good soak.

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

Up above is a new addition also from eFaucets, which they graciously provided for our remodel when they heard I was looking for something to compliment our other choices. Our old one was my absolute favorite shower head, but it just would not go in our new bathroom with its olive green color. Not only does this new shower head and accessories look better, but I’m happy to say that it does a wonderful job – this coming from someone who has returned several shower heads in previous years because their spray was weak.

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

Now for the other side of the room. With 8 of us, we needed plenty of space to hang our towels. Thanks again to Hickory Hardware for providing us not only the hooks for the wall, but also an extra one for the back of our door for extras.

This is my favorite collection of memories in here. My broken ladder found with my pallet treasure, old bottles found for pennies, a tin cup, railroad spikes, and other thrifted and found objects.

Beside the ladder it is the cut-out from our dresser top that I painted to look like an old bath sign. (You can make one using my tutorial too) And above it is an old wooden rake with a couple of small thrifted prints and dried botanticals.

On the opposite wall is my rack made from weathered pallet wood and the drawers taken off the antique treadle sewing machine makeover I just completed.

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

There were only 3 drawers, but 4 brackets, and the last bracket was a perfect fit as a hand towel and wash cloth holder. I love it!

Last is the floor…another favorite feature. All our other floors had been vinyl tile or carpet, but this time I wanted something to add dimension and something I could SCRUB. My husband did an excellent job for his first time, don’t you think?

Budget-Friendly DIY Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

It’s bright, clean, and ready for our large family.

Funny how a tiny bathroom can take a whole post to tour, but all sorts of effort was put into this remodel. My husband gets my applause for his wonderful work and my children for all their help preparing a meal, helping with chores and being patient as we worked. I am so thankful.

Budget-Friendly Farmhouse Style Bathroom Makeover by Prodigal Pieces #prodigalpieces

With all the supplies, parts, fixtures, decor, and all, our final dollar amount was less than $1,100. All the accents were either handmade, thrifted or found curbside. We can’t create our own tile, but you know we would if we could. (wink, wink)

I hope you enjoyed our final tour and thank you for allowing us to share. We’d love it if you would share our hard work with others too!

    We just did a farmhouse style master bathroom reno too which took us 9 months! We love how yours turned out! Beautiful job! We wanted similar tile on our floors, but were told that our floor had to much bounce and the grout would crack. So we went with a flexible “luxury vinyl”. This may sound like an oxymoron, but it actually looks really nice and is waterproof. Keep up the good work!

    I LOVE this! First thought was if Baths are only 25 cents I am buying a roll of quarters and heading south so I can take a few long soaks to fully take this makeover all in! lol Then I realized one bathroom/8 peep I would be persona non grata! So just loving it from afar, so many favs starting with the ceiling – what a dif the pine board and trim makes around the beadboard it adds an incredible new dimension! I have always wanted a dresser vanity and have my eye on a dry sink to convert. I have been holding off worried about water on the countertop. I have hard water on the farm so straight vinegar is my best friend for zapping white spots not sure if that is compatible with Waterlox. I hope you can give us an update on the Waterlox in a few mths. I never thought it would be possible to add drawer slides to an old dresser so thanks for that link. Love the contrast with the charcoal – makes me really re-think my all white bthrm plan. Not sure if the dividers were already in the dresser or if you added those but great idea so things are not rolling all around. And finally, thank heavens I am not coming as regardless of screws and mounting brackets those sewing machine drawer would be coming home with me 😉 I can’t wait to see what room you tackle next, you are always so inspiring!

      Your comment rocks, Kari! I had meant to show the water beading on the Waterlox, but I gurantee you that this mom of 8 is not worried a lick about her 6 kids getting water on it. We did have to customize the drawers with dividers so that it could slide easily in and around the sink without losing the functionality of the drawer storage capability. I’d have to follow you home if you snatched my drawers (sewing machine drawers that is). 😉

    I am visiting after seeing your bathroom featured on Miss Mustard Seed’s blog and thought I’d pop in and tell you how gorgeous it is! Love the vanity and mirror you chose and the subway tile is gorgeous! Beautiful:)

      So glad you took a minute to say “Hi!”. We are happy to have this project complete and are ready for the next one. I say owning a home is like the owning the Golden Gate bridge. Once the complete repair to the other end, they start all over again. 🙂

    Love the bath, the sewing machine drawers, the wall tiles and the floor…great looking bathroom, but 1 bathroom with 6 kids it must be hell in your house in the mornings!

    We are just renovating what was an old hotel here in Portugal, it originally had 13 bedrooms with en suites and but we are turning it into a house with now 8 bedrooms with en suites but in total there are 12 bathrooms in the house and all for just two of us, but I cant wait for the family to descend on us and fill the house when its finished! Guess who wont be cleaning all those bathrooms!

    I have just found your blog tonight in the way of Pinterest about a Drum Table Makeover from virginiasweetpea.
    We also are repurposing an old Singer Pedal Style Sewing Machine and love what you had done with the boxes..
    Can you tell my what type of brackets you had used to hold up your boxes and if you purchased them where did you get them. I was trying to make out what they looked like in your picture but was not able to.
    Love the bathroom by the way.. Amazing

      So nice to have you, Deana! The brackets that I used were the ones I took off the machine. I’m not sure if every treadle sewing machine is designed like ours, but the brackets that held on the drawers to the base came off by removing some bolts. Then, we just attached them to the board mounts. Hopefully you have the same! Let me know. 🙂

        Thank You for getting back to me Larissa,
        I will have to go out later or this weekend and see if we have the same type of brackets or what ours look like and see if I can use them at all..
        I will let you know. 🙂

    You have a large window in your shower. In our remodel, we would, too. My husband says it won’t work because of the water constantly hitting it. Can you explain how you waterproofed it? Thanks for the inspiration!

      We replaced it with a vinyl window and vinyl trim, use good caulk, and the mini-blind keeps the water off. Hope this helps!

    I am drooling over the details on those sewing machine drawers. They are what caught my eye on your pinterest post! I thought.. “hey! did those come off a sewing machine?” you and the hubs need to pat yourselves on the back – JOB WELL DONE!

    Amazing job Larissa! I am also using an old dresser mirror in our bathroom. I was contemplating how to hang it since it is so heavy. I wondered how you hung yours? Keep up the nice work – you have a special talent!

      Thank you, Jennifer! We use eye bolts with heavy duty wire for hanging mirrors and the like. Hope that helps and have fun!

    I love your bathroom reno, we have completed one, another to go. We are using an old 3 way vanity mirror, and a treadle sewing machine cabinet for our travertine vessel sink. I hit Pinterest, before I saw your copyright info, so I hope if I do have it in my pinterest board, that I think it should link back here to you, I hope, as I am not so savvy. I’ve been looking for more inspiration for our bath, and am so glad I found yours! Thank you Larissa!

    LOVE IT!! I do have a question though. We are going to remodel our girls bathroom and I’m stuck at how to hang the towels after being used. I love the hooks idea but afraid the towels would take too long to dry and would end up musty smelling after a while. How have yours done? My other option is a second shower curtain rod just for the towels. TIA.

    • Larissa

      Thanks! We like the hooks, but on days where humidity is high, I just toss them in a dryer for a quick dry time to prevent any issues. Love your rod idea.
