Hi my friends. This week I will be showing you our basement that we recently finished. Why not start with the privy?
As many of you know, I am going for the farmhouse look. The farmhouse needed a little romantic spot for the woman of the house to indulge (even if just a little). After a hard days work in the fields and the kitchen I think it was well deserved.
This bathroom is a little hard to photograph because it is long and narrow and has no windows. The pictures are not the best, but I hope you can get the cozy feel I am trying to create.
I knew right from the get go that I wanted b&w checkered flooring. Fell in love with Dru’s from the Country Farm Home. You need to go check it out!
The vanity is an old dresser that I bought from a friend years ago for $50. The cabinet man painted it for me and I had granite put on the top. Love, love the color with the b&w!
A few vintage items on the vanity. An old talcum bottle and a drug pak metal canister.
Beadboard lines one wall and I found some vintage hooks to hang goodies from. A couple of towels, a bundle of lavender gathered in OR, and a pair of wooden shoe forms.
It’s still a work in progress. So far I have only hung this window and wreath above the beadboard. See what I mean about the lighting?
A simple yet elegant chandy.
I found the lace shower curtain at T.J. Maxx on clearance for $20. I added the ruffles. I need to add one more. I didn’t gather quite enough fabric. I would have loved a claw foot tub. Tried to be practical. Just in case we happen to ever rent the basement out.
I spied this sweet gathering basket at Wal-mart the other day for $6. Perfect to hold some roses from the garden.
A basket filled with last years blooms from my Limelight Hydrangea tree sits atop a rustic stool.
My friend, Beth found this darling metal garbage can for me at a yard sale for $1.
On the left as you enter the room I have a built in open linen closet backed in beadboard.
Perfect for holding a few essentials.
I found this wire basket at a thrift shop for $2. It’s great for holding extra towels and t.p.
This wicker basket was another $2 find. This bath won’t be used a lot, so it will work for holding dirty towels and washcloths.
This pic is not the best, but I wanted to show you these sweet little silhouette pictures given to me by my cousin, Betty.
I ordered this bamboo rug from Décor Steals. Fits perfectly under the door when closed.
Well, there you have it. My romantic farmhouse bath.
