Farmhouse Bath Renovation

12 Hours
If you've visited my hometalk and blog before, you saw the disaster that was our guest bath. You also saw our mini renovation we did as well as the low budget we had! I've since made some updates and wanted to share them with you. But of course, let's start off with the before!
Beautiful, right? Who doesn't love pinecone wallpaper, an ugly medicine cabinet, and lime green walls?
You can see the original renovation here but we've since made many updates. That includes ripping up the linoleum to find original hardwoods, only to find out there were excessively termite damaged. On my blog I share the plans we have for them though and that will be happening soon. To see more pictures of new updates, click the link at the end of this post!
So far changes in this bathroom include removing the medicine cabinet and replacing with this mirror you see that I chalk painted, hanging shiplap over the drywall, chalk painting our vanity, painting the bathroom white, building plumbing pipe shelves, replacing the faucet, picking a new medicine cabinet and painting, and spray painting the original towel holder.
This was such a budget friendly update and I'm more than happy with how it turned out. All that's left is a refresh on the floors.
In the before pictures, you can see the room that the shower is in. This is where our new medicine cabinet is located (pictured below) but for some reason I have yet to photograph this room in its entirety. I have hung a shower curtain over the glass doors, it makes it easier on the eyes, and placed a wooden bench underneath the medicine cabinet which helps bring that part of the bathroom to life.
I found this medicine cabinet for $10 at a hair salon/antique shop. Weird combination, I know. But it was such a steal! You can see more pictures of our bathroom makeover here!

    What kind of jars/hangers are they hanging by the cabinet in the last picture? Seems you always find the neatest stuff at the weirdest places sometimes as you mentioned salon/store.. Are the round holders hung by a plant holder!? Sorry if they're not hung that way.. Your bathroom looks wonderful!
