Blogger and style maven Jenna LaFevor continues her farmhouse remodel with a bathroom that’s in need of an update. See how she transformed a timeworn space into a modernized one with nautical charm.
For the past few months, I’ve been working to remodel my grandparent’s farmhouse. In fact, you might remember the living room update we did in July. By far, the biggest task on our to-do list for the farmhouse was the bathroom.
The bathroom hadn’t been updated, with the exception of linoleum flooring, since the house was built. Time and tenants had left their mark on the bathroom and the only salvageable thing left was the bathtub. After months of ripping out the old fixtures, re-plumbing, re-wiring, installing all new fixtures, a vanity and more, we finally have a bathroom that I think my grandparents would be proud of.
For this space, I wanted to go with a slightly nautical theme that included blues and whites, but also wood tones. The bathroom walls are clad with luan paneling painted blue. To anchor the space and keep the blue from being too daunting, we painted the top half of the walls cream. Wood tones are throughout the space in the flooring, crown molding and on the doors.
We wanted this bathroom to convey a traditional but casual feel that would stand the test of time. With that in mind, we went with the classic Eviva Elite Stamford Single Sink Vanity in white with a marble countertop. For the faucet and fixtures, we opted for either a stainless or nickel finish. The faucet, towel holders, and hooks are all part of the Delta collection in stainless.
