Salvaged farmhouse bathroom makeover

It’s hard to define my style. I like a mix of so many different things, as well as a sprinkle of salvaged / vintage architecture for good measure. So I’m going to name this room the salvaged farmhouse bathroom makeover!

Because that’s the feeling it gives off. It’s a little bit vintage, a little bit salvaged, a little bit modern farmhouse, and a whole lotta fun!

So let’s take the full tour! With all the paint and product sources listed at the bottom of this post.

There aren’t many rooms in my home that I adore. So when I set out to pretty up this bathroom, I made sure every element was something that truly spoke to me.

While utilizing a brand new modern vanity from VirtuUSA.

Why go new?

For several reasons.

I’m not a pro builder. I have ideas, but I don’t yet have the experience to build something amazingly professional.

So when the opportunity came to recreate a bathroom I loved, this amazing new black vanity topped with a white countertop and vessel sink did it for me!

Branch jewelry holder

Most of us have access to pre built vanities. So what better way to get a pro build, teamed up with a little salvaged vintage flair?

But the bathroom challenge became so much more than that. It was about creating features that until now, only lived in my head and my heart.

I grew up in a farmhouse, and I miss the architecture and character. So I decided to see if I could emulate that myself, starting with this one room.

A branch freshly pruned from my neighbour’s yard became an instant jewelry holder once attached to the wall. Isn’t it fun?

I self-taught myself how to frame a builders’ grade window with easy farmhouse-styled window trim! Note there are no miter cuts nor fancy boards in sight! SO easy to do, and made such a dramatic farmhouse impact on the entire space.

Since the window trim turned the room into instant farmhouse charm, a ceiling makeover was next…

Planking a popcorn ceiling

.

I covered the popcorn ceiling with planks! Without removing the popcorn first.

If you have never planked a ceiling before, starting with a small room worked SO well. It taught me so many lessons while working with planks at a manageable size so I could do it with no assistance.

I used pine tongue and groove boards, nailed right over the popcorn ceiling. Crown molding is pine 1 x 4s.

And that’s when a ‘farmhouse attic wall’ became the next brainstorm.

The plain wall across from the vanity became a whole lot more interesting and productive with what I call a board and batten attic wall treatment.

Trim boards were air nailed into place, then the works painted.

The added hooks really increased the towel hanging potential in this small bathroom space! Can one have to many towel hooks? I think not!

And angling one board across the wall gave the room an instant attic kind of framing vibe.

So let’s chat about some of the other additional bathroom elements in the room next!

Toilet paper storage

.

A place to store excess toilet paper is always handy.

A vintage rustic basket (from my junker brother’s garage sale) on its side stores toilet paper in a tumbling down style.

And no, they didn’t fall out! But I did keep the toilet lid closed in case they did.

This funky toilet paper holder is actually created from a checkerboard tray I previously made!

Adding an extra yardstick to hold the toilet paper with a hinge of sorts makes it easy to load and unload as desired.

HERE’S another cool way to hold toilet paper!

About the bathroom vanity

.

The vanity I chose from Virtu USA is AMAZING. It’s called a Brentwood single sink 28″ vanity, (no longer shown online) which came with a countertop, vessel sink, sleek chrome faucet, base, and mirror. Totally complete. And the quality is beautiful.

Vanity specs:

.

  • 28″ Brentwood
  • single white vessel sink
  • chrome one-lever faucet
  • black framed mirror
  • white countertop

The doors and drawers are self closing so it’s whisper quiet! I have always wanted a vessel sink and now I have one! I’m so in love with it and it’s the perfect size for the room!

And as you can see, I added eclectic hardware, license plate bling and framed out the mirror.

The vanity arrived so well wrapped with everything intact.

Don’t all those black details look fabulous against reclaimed wood?

The black framed mirror was framed with vintage yardsticks and cedar strips to give it more of a visual frame. Plus, it’s cool!

  1. You always amaze me! Love, love, love the planked ceiling but the attic wall is so cool! Not sure where you come up with all of your wonderful ideas, lady! Super job on this bathroom. It looks amazing!

    • Thanks Denise! The wall came to me while I was sitting on the floor staring at it wishing I could do something different than just board and batten and didn’t want to plank as I had already planked the ceiling. I nearly used reclaimed wood for the angle brace, but then felt it was too much competition for the other side of the room, so left things white. I really want to do this in other parts of the house now too!

  2. LOOKS AWESOME, DONNA!!!

    And to all the nay-sayers about the vanity being TOO modern…well, you hit it out of the ballpark of modern!!! πŸ™‚

  3. ABSOLUTELY charming, creative, “farmy” and darling to boot, not to mention functional and personal! Love every part of it. Your creativity is amazing! I’m totally a fan! Toni

  4. I popped over from SDG and I have to say again (from last visit here) you have such a GIFT for styling JUNK into the COOLEST items, decor, and style. I would never say I personally love “junk” but I love your style!!!! I don’t think anyone could match your talent in this area–pure perfection. And I LOVE your window redo. I really love so much about the whole darned bathroom!

  5. Dear Donna,
    Please come to my home and make over our bathrooms. We have three of them, so there’s lots of space for you to work your magic! πŸ™‚ Seriously, I love your bathroom – actually loved it before (mid-makeover?) – and now it is amazing! The vanity is so pretty and I loved how you truly made it your own! This is a jaw-dropping makeover!

  6. Girl, you outdid yourself this time!

    I love everything, but I’m quite fond of the free item in the room…. the tree branch. It’s definitely something I would decorate with, but many people might be apprehensive about the quirk. Love it!

    P.S. I like the Virginia license plate. It’s got my birth year on it. …:)

  7. You’ve done it again Donna! So fresh and lovely. So much eye candy! And always so functional and beautiful! Thanks for sharing!

  8. I can honestly say this is the only other bathroom I have seen pictures of, besides one that Bliss Ranch has shown, that I have wanted to come visit and see in person. I love every detail of this room, but I think my favorite has to be the yardstick/checker board TP holder!!!!! I am sharing that on my FB page. That is so far out of the box, it is in it’s own junking universe.

  9. You can’t see me but I’m giving you a standing ovation!!!! Bravo Donna! It’s gorgeous, love everything about it. You’ve outdone yourself again. Getting ready to plank the ceilings in several rooms, will your tutorial be out soon? Should I wait or plunge in head first?

    • Hey Cindi! I’ll put it up next week for sure! Maybe even Monday if I can finish the post off. If you don’t wish to wait, just stock up on very thin pine tongue and groove planks, a nail gun, crack fill and lotsa patience! πŸ™‚

      Seriously, I’ll explain my pitfalls to save you a little heartache. Soon!! Thanks for the kudos!

  10. Without a doubt the best reno-redo of a bath I’ve ever seen. I live in an apartment so a complete redo is out of the question, but the accessory tree, OMG. This I can do and have the perfect branches to make something truly unique for my bathroom. You may not consider yourself a professional, but you certainly have grown greatly with this experience and I appreciate your share. Thanks.

  11. It looks seriously absolutely amazing Donna- I love how everything has come together. That planked ceiling is incredible- I would love to do that in every room in our house (I hate our textured ceilings). But I think the most interesting thing in the whole room (which is a tough pick because the whole space is so interesting) just might be that branch necklace holder. Wow. I have some serious pinning to do. Amazing.
