Our budget friendly farmhouse master bathroom has been a major evolution over the past couple years since we moved into our fixer upper. When we first moved in, I wasn’t even planning on doing a farmhouse master bathroom. I didn’t know what my design plans were. I just knew that something needed to happen, but there were bigger fish to fry as we renovated the rest of the house.

So our master bathroom sat..boring and bare hidden in the back of our house. That’s usually true with most renovations I think. You typically do the master bedroom and bathroom last because it’s least likely to be seen by guests. It’s true over here at least. 2.5 years of renovating and I still haven’t finished decorating the master bedroom. Shhh…it’s getting there.

But during the cold and LONG winter, Logan and I got a bit of a DIY bug after a binge session of Fixer Upper. It was shiplap time, so we added a budget friendly faux shiplap wall and floating shelves. These DIY projects alone completely transformed the master bathroom and brought in tons of the farmhouse charm I was looking for. This is definitely a budget friendly farmhouse master bathroom. The shiplap wall cost us less than $15 and you’ll see based on the source list at the end of this post that a lot of the decor was DIYed or collected from thrift stores or flea markets.

The master bathroom is small. The master bathroom is awkward. Our master bathroom was really hideous. Here’s where we started when we moved in to our fixer upper.

Ready to see our new farmhouse master bathroom!?

Come on in!

Our farmhouse master bathroom certainly come a long way, hasn’t it?!!

I fell in love with the texture of this shower curtain, but when I went to install it, it was too short! Silly me, I thought all shower curtain lengths were the same. I'm going to show you how I fixed this issue soon, stay tuned!

I had a blast making this Ombre Painted Wood Sign & Rub A Dub Dub chippy paint sign.

When you turn around from the shelves & toilet...

I'm going to tell you the story behind this amazing vintage vanity cabinet very soon. This cabinet really started the inspiration behind our farmhouse master bathroom design plans. Here she is in all her chippy paint glory.

Here's a little sneak at the amazing before and afters!

    I look forward to what you make out of the old shelving unit that was over the toilet in the first place! Would you remove the shelves and turn it into an arbor?
