Beautiful French Country Powder Bathroom Makeover
I’m so glad that you are here. I’m sharing my powder bathroom makeover with you today. If you have been coming to the blog for any amount of time, you will know that we have been updating our home for fifteen years. It’s a lovely home set on a beautiful ten acre farm in the foothills of the Cascade Mountain range. We feel so blessed to have the opportunity to make this house into our home.
I love this bathroom. It is the bathroom that we and our guests use most often as it is right in the middle of our living space. We have added a great deal of French Country style using some great vintage items.
One of my favorite things about this bathroom is the sconces. When I bought them, they were bright gold in a really bad way and they looked cheap. I spray painted them and antiqued them. Then I added crystals and adorable lamp shades. They give the bathroom so much character and a bit of glam.
I was absolutely giddy when I found this light fixture. Months earlier, I had gone on a buying trip for my boutique and I went to antique stores from Las Vegas to Oregon. The rule was that you had to head home when the UHaul truck was full or you ran out of money. I was in the middle of a home remodel at the time and I was hoping to find two matching vintage chandeliers for my laundry room. Lucky for me, I did. Then I found this light fixture on Facebook Marketplace for only $20. What a steal and it matches the laundry room chandeliers perfectly.
I made this shelf out of corbels, 4″x 6″ lumber and some trim, I absolutely love it. They beauty of making your own, is that you get to customize it to get exactly what you want. And, it was super easy to do.
I love how the vintage vanity, vintage light and the brick floors work together to add some French Country flair. You will notice all of the florals are white flowers. I always use white flowers throughout my home.
I wanted a vintage vanity for this bathroom, but the prices were so steep. I found this vintage dresser on Facebook Marketplace, I brought it home and painted it black with gold details. While I was painting it, I found a label that said that the dresser was almost 100 years old. The marble top came with it. I took it to a local marble fabricator and they cut in the holes for the sink and faucet. It is so perfect in the bathroom.
Lastly, I always decorate the top of the toilet-I’m sure that this makes my husband so happy that he has something pretty to look at.
Looking for more great projects?
Hugs and blessings to you,
