Vintage Photo Artwork in the Bathroom

It’s been on my to-do list forever to find or make some new artwork for the bathroom, and this week inspiration finally hit me. It feels so good to rearrange just a few things (most of which I already had at my house) and come up with a fresh, new look in hardly no time at all.

A few years ago I hung two wooden crates on the wall above the toilet (you can find that tutorial in my book), and every time I walk in the bathroom I think to myself, I should really re-style those shelves soon. So that’s exactly where I started. I kept out some of the glass jars and bottles I had filled with bath soaps and salts and added a few new items that had an antique feel and gave the shelves some character:

  • a stoneware bowl
  • white pitcher
  • antique cake plate holding rolled hand towels
  • vintage photograph in an oval frame

Softening the Farmhouse

You know how little girls like to play dress up with their dolls? Or how mothers with daughters get to buy cute, ruffly dresses and bows for them to wear? Well, I’m a mom of boys, and the definition of playing dress up around here involves super hero costumes with masks and a weapon. Still cute, but not quite the same. ūüôā

That’s part of the reason I think I love interior design and decorating my farmhouse so much. It allows me to be creative and try different things, and I’ve noticed that my style lately has leaned more towards a much more feminine, softer vintage farmhouse feel. I adore the industrial look of hard metal and dark rustic wood, but at this stage of my life (newly single) my heart is drawn more to soft lace and ruffles and faded wood tones and light, bright white spaces. I’ve noticed that my design choices have been slowly softening our home, and I love the blend of feminine romance and vintage farmhouse that is happening.

I think it all started when I designed my master bedroom…

Christmas Home Tour Part 1

My favorite time of the year has finally arrived! I love sharing our little farmhouse all dressed up for the holidays, and this year was¬†especially fun with all the remodeling we’ve done to the house.¬†When I decorate for Christmas, I like to keep things simple, natural and super cozy. Warm, fuzzy blankets on the couch… wreaths in windows and on doors… and TONS of greenery throughout the house…

We had so much fun decorating the farmhouse over the last few weeks, and I hope you enjoy seeing a peek inside and find some ideas to inspire you! I have so many photos I want to share¬†that¬†I’ve broken our Christmas Home Tour into two parts. You’ll get to see our front porch, master bedroom, and newly renovated bathroom today, and Part 2 of the tour will come in just a few more days!

I’ve included links to¬†some of the products and projects in our¬†home tour, so you can shop for these items too!¬†Note: Some of the links in this post are¬†affiliate links, which allows me to make a small commission from your purchase, but your purchase price stays the same.

Our tub was in bad shape, and the entire bathroom needed a major refresh. We started with a complete overhaul of our tub and shower by Bath Fitter, which you can read about here and here. Then we ripped up the old flooring and added a beautiful mosaic tile (details here). The next week we added a planked wall treatment and a new vanity and did LOTS of painting (details here). And now I am SO excited to show you our beautiful new farmhouse bathroom!

FYI:¬†If you want to know where we found all the items for our bathroom, I’ve included a source list at the end of the post!
