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 picture...so 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!
