Hello guys! I believe I promised an unveiling of our cottage style bathroom remodel that’s been a part of this girls cottage life for a few too many months now. I have to say it’s getting lots of use, we obviously really needed an extra functioning bathroom. But with two teenagers, it’s been hard to get it tidied up long enough to snap a few photos. The cabinet that will be going above the throne is proving to be a tedious job. So I’ll let you know what happens with that. So without further adieu… here she is…
We really wanted it to look like this bathroom could have been built with the home back in 1931, but also have an easy going cottage feel with a touch of elegance. The original bathroom was yellow and black with wall paper that wrapped clear around the ceiling.
We painted the radiator white and I added a cafe curtain to the window. It’s a vintage linen tablecloth secured into place with a spring rod.
We went for marble hex tiles with light gray grout on the floors. I went back and forth between gray and white grout for the floors. I love the way white looks, but I didn’t want to be scrubbing it clean all the time. The gray works too. The bathmat is from World Market and it’s made out of recycled materials. I thought it was fun and added a pop of color to the space that my daughter was hoping for. The gray ruffled shower curtain is from Pottery Barn, and it adds loads of texture in here.
The white subway tile with white grout for the walls was an easy choice, it’s a classic cottage look. The little niche in the shower is great for all the lotions and potions teenagers accumulate and the marble ledge ties into the floor color.
I went with two different looks for the bathroom lighting. The chandelier from Lowes has an elegant feel, while the barn style light from Home Depot adds a rustic touch. I think they work well together. Mr. Manly made the row of hooks out of old barn board and new hooks, also from Lowes.
The chrome fixtures are from a local plumbing supply store, they are made by Delta. I went with the entire matching Victorian line for the sink and tub.We had the sink and tub reglazed to give them a fresh clean look.The vintage style medicine cabinet over the sink is Pottery Barn and provides much needed storage in this pokey cottage bathroom.
