Master Bath Beauty

 If there is one room I’ve waited the longest to  be done, it’s our master bathroom.

        When I look back, it is amazing  how far we’ve come with remodeling this 1897 farmhouse.  

       In the original house this little room was used as a bedroom.  It was the only one on the first floor with a tiny little closet.  We wanted our master bedroom to be on the first floor, so we turned this little room into our master bathroom and one of the two living rooms into our bedroom.  


  This was the closet!  The only thing saved from the room and closet was the sweet overhead light.   I had it rewired and you will see it below in our new bathroom.  

       But before beauty, there was the beast.  Bill worked on and off again on this beast for over a year.   He would work on her and then get pulled away to work on another area of our farmhouse and since he also works as a fireman, the master bathroom seemed to take forever.  But he truly made her into a beauty with some help from a few others.  Here are the before  pictures:

       Her walls and floor were all  torn down and because of some rot she was even exposed to the weather  while Bill built her back up.  Doors and one window were removed to open her up to a completely new floor plan.

       New insulation and walls going up for a bigger closet and a huge shower.   We wanted everything done on the first floor to be handicap assessable for any future guests or ourselves to use if needed in the future.   All door openings were made a minimum of 36″ wide.

                       Shiplap and vanities are moving in.

        And now we present the beauty . . .

       Notice the  overhead light that came from the original closet?

        My inspiration for our master bedroom and bathroom is the beach, which is my favorite place to be, especially with my sisters who I don’t get to see very often.

I added color to the room with the shower curtain (which is actually a window curtain), and rugs that  match the quilt covering our bed.  

        So what is missing from this beautiful bathroom?   A few towel bars, some decorations, a barn door that will  serve as our closet door and most importantly us!  We are starting to move things into our farmhouse.  Our big move is coming soon!
