Little Bathroom Reveal

Hi Friends,
You're probably tired of my projects
and well,
I am too.
But as promised I'm ready to share
the finished rooms
starting with
the first little bathroom on the first floor.

This  bath is tucked down a little hall 
off the entryway next to my guys office.

The door sign was a little find
from Magnolia Market when we visited last winter.

Since I used dark browns and chocolate with tone on tone neutrals throughout,
I created a designer mosaic niche in the shower with those colors
to tie the room together.
Subway tile in white was used for the shower wall and we kept the pretty white tub
now considered vintage.

Remember the sweet vintage coral colored tulip vase
from my tea cup gift last week?
Look how pretty  it is here.
The floor is Rialto in a natural Terra Cotta color
so it makes the perfect  accent 
and I love it!!
Thanks again Martha.

Rubbed oil bronze fixtures are used throughout my cottage
so once again I added them here.

Slowly over the last few years, we've said goodbye to the old brass fixtures.

This ivory shower curtain was in my stash so I 
used it once again.

It's great how treasures you already have look like new when
you use them in different ways from other areas.

Inside the shower is a high window
and again, I had this tone on tone valance 
and it worked great.
I hemmed it a bit shorter and was in business.

The granite sink top was done a couple years ago when we 
updated our master bath.
Since we had a whole slab of granite to work with
we used it all by adding it here and also to a counter top
 in my sewing laundry room.
This way, there was no waste of granite and we utilized the whole slab.

Keeping with the tone on tone of ivory and white.
I added a wood applique to the cabinet front painted white.
This sink cabinet was also a reloved piece with chalk paint
and a little distress.
You can see why I used the colors in the shower niche 
to pull the room together.

This vintage cabinet was a sweet gift from my Grandmother
many years ago.
Again, painted ivory with the addition of wood appliques painted white.

The little basket wrapped in burlap carries the colors of the room
in the wash clothes.
A simply accent that pulls the room together.

The mirror, another gift from my grandmother
many years ago,
was originally a flat wall mirror.

My hubby created a boxed cabinet
behind it,
 making the mirror become a door
 now it serves as a medicine chest with shelves inside for essentials.

I painted the mirror frame ivory with lots of distress.
Can you see the etched design on the mirror?
That's original to the mirror 
and the white etching
picks up the white from around the room
and ties in the design to the wood applique on the cabinet front.

This little helper table
was one I found on a junkin trip.
Again it was  painted  ivory and I added a French graphic to the front. 
Here I used a transfer technique by naking a reverse copy on an inject printer
and rubbed the design onto the wood.
I then went over the design with a black sharpie to brighten it up where needed.

A few fall towels from my stash for the season.

The fun part of this room, I can change out the accent color to anything.
Right now I have fall colors
but I am looking forward to Christmas 
with pops of red and green or maybe all white winter accents.

A few fun pieces from junkin finds added for wall art.

Two sweet bathroom drawings I found and painted the mattes brown.

For this wall piece, I added a French graphic 
in layers to the front 
rubbed oil bronze for the frame.

Well, that's it for this bathroom 
using most of what I already had and reloved
with just the addition of subway tile and granite.

The dust is cleaned up now and after many hours of hard work,
I can tell you  I am so glad to be finished
before the holidays too.

Next time I'll share the second  floor bathroom
redesigned and complete.

Wishing you a great week.
See you soon.
