Farmhouse~Shabby Part 2


Hello everyone! Hope your weekend was amazing! We have had our daughter home from college....
and well I"m very happy!

Last week I showed our master bedroom redo...this week is our master bathroom.
Above is the completed mirror and light fixtures...below is the before....
I went nuts when hubby said I could buy furniture from a thrift store...paint it white...and use it to hold our linens upstairs instead of building a linen closet! Yay and yippeee!
Joining in with Susan @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for Met. Monday!
Also http://www.craftskeepmesane.blogspot.com/   I love this party!


Check out Carrie's blog above to just click on picture!
Clock is also from a thrift store. I spray painted it this ocean blue and then sanded it to give it an old look.
I also picked brown grout for our tile because we live in an old farmhouse and have a well. Well water here has rust in it which does a number on white grout. I learned from this mistake and always trying to keep it white....grrrrrr....
This garden style plant holder I love, since I enjoy the garden style look in our bathroom.
Here is the 99.00 dollar thrift store find. It was originally a tv cabinet.
I'm so glad you came by for a visit!
Blessings,
Debbie

Beautiful bathroom! We are in the process of remodeling our master bath. I keep going back and forth wondering should I incorporate furniture pieces or traditional bathroom cabinets...you've done an excellent job!

Hi Debbie! What a lovely bathroom and I adore your cabinet you found! It looks wonderful. Wish I had the space to do this! So much more charming than a built in.
Be a sweetie,

Thanks for visiting my blog today! I love your bathroom redo. The cottage style and the soft colors are just wonderful! The clock and your new "linen closet" are my favorite pieces. I'm sure you'll enjoy this bathroom for years to come!

I like it! I have been trying to figure out where I could use a big piece like this for a linen cupboard because there is no linen closet. Yours looks fantastic painted white. And you chose one of my favorite colors for the walls.

What a lovely transformation! great job on the cupboard. You'd never know it was once an poor thrift store brown! My husband thinks I'm silly for wanting to paint things white but that's okay he's got his silly's too!

Have a great Monday!

PS Borwn grout- super idea! ♥
