Cottage-Style Bathroom Makeover

We are living in my late-grandmother's house and we are renovating one space at a time. We JUST finished the guest bathroom after a month of little sleep. The bathroom was dated, dark and felt small. We brightened it up with paint, woodwork, tile and so much more! LOVE it!
Cottage-Style Bathroom Makeover - the Finished product!
The before
I did the trim work all myself. I'm thrilled with the result of the board and batten, crown molding etc.
We discovered the original subfloors. Aren't they gorgeous?! We are going to insulate underneath to cut down on the small amount of draftiness.
I love a basket of crisp, white towels!
The vanity, faucet and mirror are from VirtuUSA - a wonderful company!
Isn't the contrast between the crisp white and the floor beautiful?!
And here's the before and after side by side! :)

    Love your creativity in the bathroom! But especially interested to know where you found the God is Good sign and the large skeleton key.

    What paint color is on the wall? Also, what grout color did you use with the subway tile? Thanks~

    I love everything’s about this space! I might have to try the board and batton in our guest bath.

    You have an amazing eye. Everything is perfect.
