ENTRY BATHROOM REVEAL

February 29, 2020
We have been in our home now two years and four months and this is the first room I would consider done. I still have a few big and small things on the punch list but that being said, we've gotten it to a really great place and I'm really happy with it. This bathroom is off our entry and is also considered the kids' bath since there are no bathrooms upstairs (🤯 crazy, I know). I wanted to create a beautiful space that functioned for both adults and our kids. 

BEFORE

It's hard to imagine it even looking like this now. Everything was builder basic and honestly too small for the space but it did offer a great blank canvas. We sold the vanity/faucet on Facebook marketplace and that went towards purchasing new items for the space.



AFTER





I love this old door so much. My friends Lindsay and Brandon were cleaning out their old farmhouse and barns with things they weren't using and this door was one of them. We frosted the glass so it would be functional and provide privacy in the bathroom. This is the second antique door we have added in our home and they add so much character!






I use a tray to corral all the items I want up on the vanity top as well as protect the wood from soap (you can see how I make our toxin free lavender hand soap here) and water. These faux carnations are only $.99 at Ikea and they're great quality especially considering the price. It's the perfect bright touch for spring.

This antique medicine cabinet was a Christmas gift from my parents. I love the warmth it adds to the space and how it coordinates with the vanity and door. It's the perfect storage for the boys' soaps, lotions, oils, and medicines.

I took these photos of the boys in the wash tub last summer and I'm probably always going to have them in one of our bathrooms. They're little faces are so precious and it was the perfect addition to this bathroom! The Jesus + Germs print is an oldie from my shop but I loved how it fits a bathroom fit for kids and adults.

PUNCH LIST

As I said, I consider this room "done" but there are a bunch of items left on our to do list. I guess by "done" I really mean it's done enough that I don't feel a nagging sense to change something/everything when I'm in it!😂 Anyway, below are some things I hope we'll do some time in the future but I'm not in a hurry to do any of them really. Don't tell my husband.😉

  • Caulk all cracks/seams and touch up paint
  • Turn outlet right side up (why someone ever put it in upside down is beyond me)
  • Apply a matte polycrylic* to vanity
  • Get step stool from Ikea (if it ever comes back in stock!)
  • Install bead board on door wall
  • Install black wall mount shower rod/rings
  • Upgrade trash can and toilet brush holder
  • Possibly add vanity lighting using puck light trick
  • Stencil or wallpaper above bead board
  • Sand and clean up door a bit more
  • New floor vent cover
  • New black or white (I haven't decided which) hexagon tile
I've tried to include sources to everything below but if there's something I missed and you're interested just let me know. And tell me, if this were your bathroom would you add vanity lighting above the mirror? It would be for aesthetic reasons only as we have great recessed lighting in here. I'd love to hear some other opinions!
