{ DIY Industrial Vintage Cottage Bathroom Makeover }

Pals!!! I'm so glad you decided to stop back in on TQS today for a super fun reveal that I've been meaning to share for the last week!! So two weekends ago we had a three day weekend for us both & what did we decide to do? Makeover my bathroom!! Mark asked & of course I was ecstatic and obliged! This makeover had been in the works for quite sometime, but we have just been so busy with everything from me being sick with what seems like issue after issue, house hunting, business, animals & just life! It was a gorgeous cozy weekend of pizza, sister time, painting, late night Home Depot runs & of course decorating!!! For this makeover I wanted to keep it practical like always, so we didn't go overboard...I mean we really didn't need to. The travertine & granite are still in great shape & for a spruce up before we eventually move was all it needed. It was remolded about 8 years ago & has held up nicely! It needed paint, new hardware, grout cleaning & some minor touch-ups...other than that just cosmetic. Anyways come see how we refreshed my upstairs bathroom for under $300 in 2 days!!


This space was dark, blue walls, old hardware & just messy cluttered decor..


Welcome, to the new cozy & bright bathroom!! I don't really share this a lot because well, it's not something that comes up in conversation really, but I take a lot of bathes because of my chronic issues! It's my relaxing time & takes less energy than a shower..It might sound pathetic but daily routines have become hard for me at times. So, having a clean & cozy fresh space is key for those days where I'm having flare-ups .

I had an idea before starting this little refresh & it was to have tons of white with mixed in galvanized items, chippy green & vintage industrial signs!! These vintage drawers were thrifty finds, the bottom  sign is from Home Depot & other vintage. My sister & husband were confused at first, but my idea came to life!! I always say think "outside" the box when it comes to decor & where to find it/ use it at! 

We really wanted to replace this old generic cabinet, but we had no luck searching for a vintage one with character, so we just painted & distressed this one a bit & added new chippy hardware! We added a few of the same new knobs to the vanity & painted that white as well1 The mirror & diy mason jar light we left as well!

Lots of vintage soap holders & goods got used in this space! I may or may not have been outside in our garage stockpile scouring for goods at 11pm in a snow storm in my boots & cutoffs hahaha!

I tied in more galvanized with these "people" symbols! I snagged them on sale for 40% off at Hobby Lobby at the last minute! The shelf is also from Hobby Lobby below & the numbers/ galvanized top help tie in as well.

The soap caddy is from HomeGoods & it's probably the best smelling spice vanilla duo. I mean let's be honest I loved the packaging & tray it came with & for only $7!!

I mentioned above but this shelf is from Hobby Lobby, the decor is from HomeGoods & I love how it ties in with the new shower curtain.

More vintage goods, candles, pictures, chalkboards & greenery to add warmth to this space!

I hope you loved this space!! It's fresh, cleaned, re-caulked & styled to the nines haha! There have been many bathes since the makeover & it's sooo relaxing! 

Happy Monday!
