Our main bathroom / kids bathroom is the first project we tackled upon moving in! Updating the sink and replacing the toilet and fixtures was a priority. I wanted to give the space a fun vibe since it’s for the kiddos, yet stay true to the rustic/farmhouse feel we envision for the rest of our home.
Here are the before pictures, days after moving in:
And here is my inspiration board for what I envisioned!
I *almost* went with the flooring pictured in my inspiration board. It’s a vinyl flooring by Tarkett I’ve seen featured on a few other blogs. My local hardware store was nice enough to get in a sample for me, but he also showed me this Penny Lane vinyl flooring by Mannington. It’s described as an “updated throwback design”. It was love at first sight! I went with the “Quartize with Granite” option but it’s available in two other color schemes as well. Update: I just ordered the same flooring for my laundry room too! Yay!
The work begins (thanks hubby and Dad!)
Existing vanity sanded down and primed. New vanity top in place.Vanity painted in Benjamin Moore’s Wythe Blue (matched to Valspar Cabinet Enamel paint):
Walls are now painted in Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray. New toilet and Spot Resist faucet installed! A must with our hard water.
New light fixture in place (gotta love Amazon prime!), and the amazing shelves and mirror frame my husband made are up! (Minwax Early American stain). Check out the monogram towel hooks too! More on those below.
In this pic you can see a glimpse of our fun shower curtain. I gave the kids a few options I picked out from Society 6 and they chose this Otter one. I love it! It adds a whimsical touch to the bathroom and the curtain itself is great quality!
Linen closet door also sanded, primed and painted in Wythe Blue.
I spent entirely too long searching for personalized towel hooks that didn’t cost a fortune. I really wanted the kids to each have their own place to hang their towel. In the end, I found a set of 4 hand forged Thumbprint Hooks from an Etsy seller and used my Cricut to apply white vinyl letters! I love how they turned out.
