As I’ve shared about my new house, I’ve had one room that people are SO excited for- the bathroom! And me too! That claw foot tub is literally all of my dreams come true. To be honest though, the room needs some work to get it to the gorgeous room I know it can be!
Here’s the mood board with the new pieces I’m planning on adding:
inspiration photo / arch mirror / brass faucet / white vanity / rug / brass light / faux peony flowers / abstract wallpaper / stool / pink cabinet / brass towel rod set
The color scheme will be a combination of white, pink, and gold. As far as the style goes, it’ll be a fun mixture of traditional meets modern. I’m bringing back some brass fixtures (perfect for a 1905 house, right?!). The vanity looks like a vintage find, but its from Overstock! Its the first thing I selected for the room since it feels like it could be original to the home.
My bathroom from my last home was almost 100% from Overstock, and that room was one of my most favorite spaces ever! So this time around, you better believe that I’ll be working with Overstock to make it as dreamy as possible. They have everything you could think of for a bathroom, plus the price is amazing, so its the perfect fit!
The wallpaper will be a showstopper and will go above the chair rail. It is an abstract pattern that reminds me of marble. It’s removable, which I am a HUGE fan of! The pattern is bold so I selected more neutral items with texture (like the stool and rug) to let the wallpaper be the star of this room. Here you can see more of what I’m planning:
This is the wall to your left when you walk into the room. For this area, the vanity and gold arched mirror will make the biggest difference! The medicine cabinet will be coming down in favor for a shelf with art and some accessories. Don’t worry though, I have some additional storage planned to make up for the medicine cabinet once that’s gone!
This back wall will see some big changes! The first thing I did in this room was take down the gross shower curtain. After living in the house for a month, I realize we’ve never used this shower and haven’t missed it. I bathe in here as does Don, but when I need to shower I use my husband’s bathroom. For that reason, the shower rod and actual shower will be coming down.
One of the renovations the last owner did was raise up the roof above the tub- it used to slant and come right above the window. I’m really tempted to try and add a larger window here! The small window now looks too tiny for the wall in my opinion. We’ll see if we have the budget to do it though! The room could sure use the light!
For the wall to the right of the tub, I’m most excited to hang a towel rod– lol! Somehow there isn’t one in either bathroom- so strange to me! The cute (and crazy affordable) pink cabinet will go on this wall and will house the items currently in the medicine cabinet.
The layout of this house is a little strange- off of the kitchen is a hallway with cabinets. They hold cleaning supplies, linens, and first aid. My bathroom is at the end of that hallway. This view will be graced with a new chandelier. Eventually I’ll paint the cabinets down the hall (probably to match the kitchen cabinets).
Whenever I start a new project, I like to get going on it with a small easy task to ease into things. For this room, I decided that that’d be painting the bathtub. I wasn’t sure what color to go, so yesterday I was asking for advice on my Instagram stories. I ended up painting it pink! I’ll have a full tutorial once its finished (I still need to do a top coat and make the feet more gold). For now, here’s a sneak peek:
to do list
This room has a lot to do for it! I thought I’d share my to do list so you can know what projects to look forward to-
- add beadboard or paint below the chair rail
- put up new trim
- skimcoat above the chair rail so wallpaper will adhere
- hang wallpaper
- install toilet
- install vanity/faucet
- hang chandelier
- put up the rest of the fixtures- towel bar/ring, bath faucet, shelf above toilet
- style the space
My goal is to have the bathroom done by the beginning of October at the latest. I’m really excited that I can team up with Overstock to get this room looking gorgeous! If any of you have any decor needs, I’d definitely suggest checking them out!
I can’t wait to share the process as I make it my style! Just painting the tub made it feel so much like my own room- I’m excited to start chipping away at it!Thank you to Overstock for sending over product for my Bathroom! Click here to read my full disclosure policy.
