We are halfway through for our vintage farmhouse powder room ORC week 3. This week we tackled painting the beadboard, fixtures, and installed our toilet.
I can’t believe we’re halfway through this One Room Challenge and so many changes have been made so far.
I am starting to see this Vintage Farmhouse Powder Room come together and it’s so exciting!
There’s still a lot to do, but here’s what we accomplished this week.
For starters, we got the toilet installed. We found this one on sale for $99!
Right in our budget parameters!
Trent installed it this last weekend and it’s working great.
I worked on the base cabinet. Originally, I dreamed of turning a vintage washbasin into a DIY cabinet base, but with the money being tight, my only option was to reuse what we have.
So I got out the same paint I used for the cabinets in our Laundry Room Makeover and painted the base cabinet the same hue.
I installed handles from our windows we replaced.
We still need to spray paint the cabinet door hinges, but it was easier to paint with the doors still on the base.
Here’s a better view of our tiles.
I had questions about last week’s post and the orientation of the tiles against the existing ones. I think it matches up nicely, don’t you?
So that leaves us with the countertop. As you can see the sink is still in great shape.
I ordered the faucet this week! That should come in a few days! YAY!
I’d love to have it look similar to the DIY Folding table we made in our laundry room.
The slats won’t work with the sink base, so I’m still trying to figure out how we’ll work the new base.
When we installed the beadboard, we left enough room to be able to remove the base. We plan to cover the edge with wood.
The corner moulding over the sink base still needs to installing, but we will do that after the sink is in. We cut them to size and are ready to install though!
I left the old towel rack, but plan to replace that with a vintage hook or something.
The old TP holder had great vintage lines, so I simply spray painted it and rehung it. I think it looks perfect for this vintage farmhouse powder room.
So the last thing finished this week was installing the light fixture. This came from an old bathroom that we converted to a closet and I loved the vintage shade!
