Main Bathroom Inspiration

Hey guys!  Happy Sunday.  This weekend was full of flea markets and shopping.  We went to the Painted Farm Girl Flea yesterday. It was sooooo crazy!!  Then today we went to the Allegan Antique Fair and came home with lots of  fun things.  We are relaxing for a couple minutes before heading out to dinner at my in-laws.

Soap boxes, pulley, child's show form and insulator
Awesome basket light with pulleys.  Can't wait to hang it!
 So, my plan for tonight (Friday) was to work on a table that I'm refinishing.  We ate a quick bite of dinner while watching some TV and Margot climbed up on my lap and fell asleep.  Poor kitty lost a big chunk of fur and now her skin is all irritated.  I don't have the heart to move her cause she is passed.out! So, I thought this was the perfect time to show you my inspiration for what I hope I can get my main bathroom looking like.

So my thought for this bathroom is to make it as functional as I can but also to "pretty it up".  I love lots of natural light in bathrooms and I really want to lighten things up.  The first way I see lightening it up is to change out the vanity.  The one we have is dark, boxy and cheap.  I'd love to get something that has a shelf at the bottom for extra storage and make it feel more like a furniture piece rather than a cabinet.

After the vanity comes paint.  I have SW Grasslands in the bathroom now and I chose this color before we moved in.  I like it but I don't love it.  With that said, I will repaint the walls with SW Sea Salt.  It's a beautiful blue/green/gray that is clean and crisp and feels spa-like.  Word on the street is that Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper uses this color in her homes.  Can't go wrong there!


I'd love to find a simple vintage mirror to replace the builder grade mirror that we currently have.  We've been keeping our eyes peeled for one whenever we go to flea markets and antique stores.

 Lighting is another item on my wish list.  It's not as easy of a fix, so this item is more of a hopefully rather than a for sure.  The only light in the bathroom now is a ceiling light.  The idea is to someday get a light fixture added either above the mirror or two sconces on either side of the mirror.

So those are the biggest changes I'd like to see happen.  Here are a couple of inspirations that I feel best reflect the look that I'd like to create in this bathroom.

If  time and budget were no big deal, the tile in the photo above would also be a must!  I really love it.  So, what do you think?  Are you currently working on a bathroom renovation?  If you have done one, what is something you would make sure you did better or change if you could do it again?  I'd love to hear what you think!

    1. Awesome! Thanks Karrah. I will check it out! SW has the best paint. All the paint colors in our house are SW.

  3. Thank you Christen! Yes, I love rustic and that worn look but I also like having modern updates, like soft close drawers and drawer boxes cut out for plumbing. So glad you liked them!

    1. Thank you MrsTee! It's really hard for me and my husband to agree on light fixtures. I choose form over function and he chooses the opposite. But these ones are pretty awesome!

  5. I love the color you have picked out for your bathroom! I also really like that first light fixture. What a cool blog idea to document your home renovation - it will be a great memory for you to see where it started.

    1. The Sea Salt color is really great as a "almost neutral" color. I find a lot of colors really blend well with it. I am looking forward to being able to see how far we've come and what we had to go through to get there. Thanks for joining me in the adventure!
