A Fresh New Look In The Half Bath


A Primitive Place ~ Tammy


Hello Everyone.

This is going to be a really quick post, I haven’t been feeling too well today.

I did want to pop on and share what I have been working on this week.

A fresh new look for my half bath.

Total cost: $0.00

My Mom gave me the antique white paint, which I used to paint the the mirror, the lower half of the wall and the divider trim.

The rest of the decor came from different rooms.

Here is a before photo to remind you of what it did look like.

It is a small room and difficult to get photos of but here is my attempt of a few….

Chamber pot makes a great bathroom trash can.

I hung a small peg rack on the side of the sink to hold a towel.

I also hung a box from the rack, which holds an extra towel, soap and jar with Q-Tips.

The other side of the sink has a reproduction crock with some of my dried roses.

I got this inspiration from Dru @ The Country Farm Home.

I absolutely LOVE her home.

It looks FANTASTIC! I love using whites in my decorating, I love white paint, and white accessories. So many people think that primitive has to be dark- but not so, I find white quilts and paint contrasts so well with primitive accessories, it balances everything out!

I have a half bath too and I know how hard it is to get good pics in there. The lighting in such a small space throws everything off too. Your pictures came out wonderful though. I like the new colors so much. They are a lot softer and more feminine. This bathroom suits me. I think I will pin it if that's ok. -Steph-

Love the redo! Love the crock with the dried flowers.

What a wonderful redo Tammy, and the budget, perfect! You are such a creative lady, I love the ideas you come up with. Using a chamber pot as a wastebasket is a great idea, love the color choices too...who does not love ironstone...sending greetings from snowy Maine, Julie.

Chamber pot trash can!!!! I'm all over that!! I want one! And it has a lid, which is perfect for me as I am constantly dumping the garbage cuz I hate looking at it!

Fantastic! I liked the before too, but wow what a beautiful room.

The Farmers Daughter said...

What a surprise, Tammy! I was reading along, totally enjoying every photo of your bath redo, see the name "Dru" but it doesn't register, scroll down and it hits me! lol Thanks so much for the sweet compliment. I love what you've done with your bath. Isn't it nice to do a total make-over at no expense? Just a lot of style and elbow grease. It's lovely!
Blessings from the Farmhouse,

I love it! I really like the white/off-white colors that you are changing up to. I'm growing tired of the "prim colors" lately and would like to go to more neutrals in my home.
