Our "Rustic Prim" Bathroom (Lots of Pictures, Finally)!!

First of all, let me say thank you to everyone for being so patient with me! It seems like forever since we started on this bathroom! It sort of snowballed as far as my budget went. For example, when we went shopping for faucets, I fell in love with this particular one (which of course cost much more) so I had to slow down when it came to decorating it and get creative! There are several Goodwill and thrifty finds used in here. Anyway, you get the here goes! Please keep in mind that this is a small bathroom, so it was rather tough getting pictures that give you the overall picture! So, I took lots and lots of pictures! Hope I don't bore you!

You'll see my favorite color in here alot! Red...yep, it had to be red! The walls are painted a color called Bread Basket. The vanity cabinet, hanging cabinet, and inside of the door are painted a color called Calico, distressed with antiquing glaze.

Do you remember what it looked like before? Click here to see the "before" pictures.

That's quite a change, isn't it?

Jason made the hanging primitive cabinet. The inside is painted the wall color and the outside is the calico.

Here's a closer look at what's inside.

Did you recognize Kindra's blocks? On the top shelf, to the right is a star that Anne sent me. On the bottom shelf to the left is the candle holder that used to be brass with a primmed candle added and some rose hips and cinnamon sticks (sent to me by Donna) added around it. The pip berry wreath was also a gift from Donna.

That's the candle keep (I think it's called?) that Anne also sent me hanging on the side of the cabinet.

Now when you go in there and shut the door, you see a beautiful red paneled door! Jason added the raised molding for the panels and we painted it the same color red.

Here's a close up of the vanity cabinet.

And can you see the trash can over there? This is what I used. I found it a long time ago at a thrift shop. I intended to paint it, but I can't make up my mind, since you can't see too much of it anyway. The shower curtain has green in it, so I'm living with it awhile to see. If you think I should paint it....what color?

You can see it a little better here. That's the toilet paper holder Jason added to the side of the cabinet.

The vanity area:

Close up of what's on the granite countertop:

The soap dispenser is inside the little basket (above). The little lamp used to be on my sunporch, but found a new home here in the bathroom. I like the soft lighting in the evenings in here.

This was my solution for primitive lighting. I really wanted something that hung down more, but we needed flush to the ceiling lighting. This was actually in the outdoor lighting area of Home Depot.....primitive and very affordable at $39 (alot less than all the other primitive lighting I had my eye on)!

I just love this picture. It says everything about "Home", don't you think? It's above the mirror.

The back of the toilet:

The shower curtain is a Park Design called Cinnamon. Kindra made the vertical saltbox board painting. I couldn't put anything on this wall that was very cumbersome because it is such tight quarters manuvering in there.

Beside the sink.......This is a Goodwill pegboard find that was unfinished for 99 cents with a coat of black paint added. The primitive punched tin light switch cover and outlet cover was purchased from Birgit of The Primitive Country Bug. I have these in other rooms and knew I wanted them for my bathroom!

Hanging on it is another Goodwill find.....the mini washtub. I rubbed some stain on it and added some cinnamon to some soap to grubby them up, tied them up with some cheesecloth, added some sweet annie and prim candles, and instant prim! My nephew, Kemper, was here this week and saw that. He told me he liked how I decorated that. I thought that was really thoughtful and attentive of an eleven year old boy!

And here's a few more shots.

So, that's it. Again, hope it was worth the wait. Nobody was as impatient as me, but I had to learn patience! :) Hope you enjoyed it! And by the way, I'll be back in the swing of Faithful Fridays next week, hopefully. I promised pictures of my bathroom on my next post, so I wanted to make sure I delivered them! :)

I hope you have a great weekend!

wrcdgc said...

WOW! So worth the wait. It looks great and I see so many great things! Tammy you have a great decorating eye. I will email you more later. :)


ohiofarmgirl said...

I think it looks just wonderful...I love the favorite!!
The decorations a so cute and I like that you mixed old with new. The shower curtain looks great in the pics but maybe you just don't care for it and that's ok too.
I do think I would pain the trash can the same as the wall color and add a primitive label...just a thought! Thanks for sharing and it was worth the wait. Dianntha

Karen said...

Your bathroom is so beautiful, Tammy! I love it!

I got my Sonlight order today!! I am so excited! :)

basketsnprims said...

WOW! Tammy, definitely worth the wait. I love, love your color choices and you did a fantastic job on primming your vanity ~ just perfect. Jason is such a talented builder ~ love the cabinet and the raised panetls on the door. Love the blocks & saltbox panel from Kindra, too. I just love it all. I maybe would paint the trash can, though. A prim label sounds like a good idea. Thanks for sharing your perfectly prim bathroom. Oh, forgot, love the countertop & your fixtures are awesome. Have a great weekend.

Kath ~★The Olde Weeping Cedar ★~ said...

OH TAMMY!!! I don't know where to begin, I love it! The cabinet Jason made is wonderful, I love how it turned out! You two are a great team, I can complete agree with you that it is great when you can work together as a team. I have got to get some blocks from Kindra, I keep saying it, I just need to do it. If your trash bucket was mine I would paint it black... You did a fantastic job!!
Have a blessed weekend!

Linda said...

I love the red--red being one of my faves, too. The lighting is great. Really masculine shower curtain but I like it.I believe I would paint the trash bucket black and add a vintage label or swap it out for a crock.
Love Kindra's blocks.......

I love the cabinet over the stool. Where did you find that? The little crock up the corner is neat too.

Jane said...

I have looked at your bathroom makeover about 50 times because it is set up very close to my guest bath. Sink, toilet and shower in the same spots...the only difference is, I have a large built in cupboard in between my sink and toilet.
I love your makeover...great job.

Ah! I bought the exact same shelves from Target and had the EXACT same problem! I actually tore up my receipt from Target, rolled it into a few small balls and shoved it in the holes on the back of the shelf. Worked like a charm. Great minds.... :)
