Vintage Chic Bathroom Remodel, One Room Challenge Reveal


Yay, Its reveal time for the One Room Challenge, and I am the biggest procrastinator…as usual! We have been 90 percent finished this bathroom for weeks. Here I am, putting on the finishing touches and writing about it…at the last minute!

But, this year has been exhausting! I think we have all earned some much needed TLC. I am so grateful that the One Room Challenge was extended, allowing us to finish our projects at a pace we can handle in this season.

Back at the beginning of this remodel, this original 1960’s bathroom was just looking worse for wear.

It was all functional, so we lived with it…for years. There were just so many little things.

The drywall had water damage. The tiles had cracks. It tended to be smelly, no matter how thoroughly I scrubbed. There was no power outlet, only one socket of the light fixture worked

Fixing all these things meant a full remodel. Even with budget friendly design choices, we had to save up for quite some time to make it happen. Now that we finally went forward with our bathroom remodel, I am so excited to be sharing it with you!

Almost everything was demoed, and we started from scratch! Here is the bathroom today!

I was really gravitating toward green, and I am not regretting it! It is such a relaxing color, and I think it works so well for a bathroom.

We decided on a wood beadboard wainscoting because it was budget friendly, and relatively straightforward to install. The wainscoting is painted in HGSW3244 Meadow Sage. The walls are a soft white, SW7636 Origami White.

This farmhouse vanity really makes this whole bathroom. We were fortunate enough to find a carpenter who specializes in building farmhouse style furniture. He built this double sink vanity for us, and it was the same price as the lowest budget options we looked at in the big box stores!

The vanity went perfectly with these affordable vessel faucets and sinks from Amazon, and we picked up these knobs at Hobby Lobby. I am so thrilled with this vanity. Being made of solid wood, my rough and rowdy boys are much less likely to damage it!

This antique chandelier was a Marketplace find! It was nearly black with tarnish. I cleaned it up and it is my favorite part of our new bathroom. Who doesn’t love a little sparkle?

These two mirrors were a clearance find a few years ago. They were originally black. I spray painted them with Rustoleum French Cream, and slightly distressed them before hanging.

For above the toilet storage, I did a quick makeover on a small curio cabinet.

It was just $20 on Marketplace! With a bit of chalk paint and light distressing, I think it adds so much charm to this little bathroom.

We found this beautiful polished faux marble tile on sale at Floor and Decor. I love the clean simplicity of this floor, especially alongside the new white tub and shower curtains!

These little floor rugs make my heart happy. I crocheted them with clothesline and macrame cord, and I will share the pattern in a tutorial soon!

This Delta Linden faucet set looks great, and it is so practical. Having the detachable shower wand in the center has been so nice for giving the kids baths!

Wow, this bathroom remodel was a long time coming, and I am so happy it is finally complete. I loved participating in the One Room Challenge. It gives you the motivation and inspiration you need to create a beautiful space in your home!
