Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover Reveal – Shiplap Walls, Dark Fixtures and More!

A few months before we moved to this house, we redid the bathroom at our old house. Here is that farmhouse bathroom makeover reveal. Better late than never, right?!


Dean and I finally gave the one bathroom at our old house a full makeover just a few months before we moved. We discussed our makeover plans and shared a style board here. We shared the before photos and tub makeover. We also shared some photos in a summer tour post from 2016. But I realized we never did a full bathroom makeover reveal post for you! Shame on us! So, in this post we’re sharing the final farmhouse bathroom makeover reveal, with all the after photos in one place. (You can find all the related farmhouse bathroom makeover posts by clicking here.)

The Bathroom Before

Much like the bathrooms at our current house (albeit, older and uglier), the bathroom at our old house was very outdated when we bought it.

If you’ve been around for along time, you may remember that we basically took that ugly space and gave it a little update in a week with very little money for a contest we were participating in several years ago.

But since we were on a tight timeline we committed some very bad DIY no-no’s. Basically you can DIY just about anything and do a great job of it. But if you skimp and skip important things, the results will either turn out horribly right away or any good results will be short-lived.

Like the fact that we didn’t prime the vanity and just painted it. It looked good, but it started showing some major wear and tear because of skipping the primer. And the floor. What an embarrassment. When we laid the new floor, we were in such a rush (picture giving a bathroom a makeover in less than a week, including shopping, DIY, styling and photographing) that we didn’t remove the old vinyl flooring. We just slapped the new stuff on top. Which led to this lovely disaster…

So by the time we got to this makeover, the bathroom REALLY needed it.

Even though we had more time and a little more budget when we did the bathroom makeover this time, we still didn’t want to deal with the hassle of removing the ugly old green bathtub and tiles. So we had Bath Fitter come and install one of their systems over top of the green tub and tiles. We had a fresh white tub and surround in just one day!

Of course, we also shiplapped the whole room, added a new toilet, floors and a vanity/cabinet combo that had enough storage for all five of us.

Finally, here’s a weird wide angle shot of the bathroom from our realtor listing when we sold our house. This pic shows the new window and framing for that, which the other photos don’t show (because I took them before we installed new windows).

Although I very much love and am thankful for more than one bathroom at our current house, I do miss the perfect farmhouse style bathroom that we created at our old house. Which makes me even more excited for the powder room mini makeover that we’re tackling shortly!
