cottage style bathroom remodel

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…

The original bathroom was yellow and black with wall paper that wrapped clear around the ceiling.

It’s a vintage linen tablecloth secured into place with a spring rod.

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 little niche in the shower is great for all the lotions and potions teenagers accumulate and the marble ledge ties into the floor color.

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.

    I love this bathroom! Your tile choices are spot on and I love the subtle pops of color you added with the shower curtain and bath mat. Old bathrooms have so much more charm than newer ones.

    I love, love, LOVE it! Everything came together so beautifully – from the shower curtain, to the tile, the mix of lighting and especially the cafe curtain πŸ™‚ It’s uncanny how similar our styles are and how much I enjoy seeing what you’ve done.

    It’s a bathroom to love, and feels so remodeled yet with an original old feel to the home.
    There is not a thing I don’t love about this room of beauty, relaxation with a good soak, and beautifying oneself. πŸ™‚
