I hope you all had a great holiday week last week. We had firework shows nonstop on the lake for 4 nights in a row. The best part was we had the perfect view out our master bedroom windows, so the whole family snuggled in our bed to watch. Several of us only made it through the first 5 minutes before snoring, (cough, cough, the boys), but it was so fun.
I had a few minutes to snap photos this morning of my daughter’s bathroom, which I haven’t really shared much of yet. If you remember last fall I bought this beautiful old dresser from the Allegan Flea Market and it jumpstarted my whole design plan for this room.
I wanted a soft vintage vibe for this room, but not too girly because this is also the main bathroom for people hanging out in the basement to use.
They guys did an amazing job reworking the inside of the dresser to accommodate the plumbing. It was originally white, but my daughter begged me to paint it a fun color.
I was going for a more subdued blue, but she talked me into this fun Denim color (which is actually called Denim!). I painted it with an outdoor quality paint to help repel water.
I found this pretty floral wallpaper at Anthropologie and I liked how it kind of went with the curved lines of the dresser. This would have been a little dizzying floor to ceiling in such a small space, so we decided to just do 3 of the walls. I also had the guys do a board and batten treatment (shocking I know) on the lower half of the bathroom to disguise the foundation wall by the window.
It created this nice shelf wall under the window, which I’m still figuring out decor wise. I had some cute orchids lining the window sill, but it turns out my daughter was watering them every day unbeknownst to me. They sort of drowned in her “loving care” kind of like the goldfish she hugged too tight when she was 2 :) I just borrowed this faux one from my mom’s house for now while I figure it out.
I chose this beautiful Victorian Single Handle Lavatory Faucet from Delta for this bathroom. I loved the vintage feeling of it and it looks like it was meant to be in this old dresser. I love the contrast of the Chrome finish with the oil rubbed bronze light fixtures and towel hooks.
This Universal Showering In2ition H2Okinetic 5-Setting Two-in-One Shower Head in Chrome was another great pick for us. It has been a life saver for my daughter’s hair. She always has a hard time getting shampoo and conditioner out of her hair because she is petite. With this shower head, she can detach the head and rinse her hair easily – it’s been so great!
I found this adorable shower curtain at Urban Outfitters, and it’s like your grandma’s old bedspread in the best possible way.
I don’t know about your kids, but mine seem to be lacking the ability to hang towels on on an actual towel bar. But give them a cute hook and they have it down (at least 50% of the time). I found these cute hooks with my daughter’s initials at Anthropologie and the guys attached them to a board for me to make it extra sturdy.
We used penny tiles on the floors in here, which I love and they feel so good under your feet.
This is long skinny bathroom to photograph, so stop by my Instagram later today because I will be doing an instastory tour and you will get a better feel for the space. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, I typically do a little story over there on post days of whatever space I posted – it’s a fun way to get a little video tour!
