Getting there ~


You're probably tired of seeing the bath,
... but here it is anyway ~
I am over-the-moon excited about it!

warm, bright & farmhouse-y !!!

Peter has worked So hard getting this together for us...
and I couldn't me happier at his results ~




we still have to put the drawers back in by the tub,
and no...those curtains will not be staying ~ 
they were just some burlap feedsack make-do ones that I had put up for privacy...



 the sink is awesome ~
Peter had the brainstorm to put this little drysink under our existing pedestal sink...
I L O V E it!

we purchased the drysink from Lee & Robin a couple of years ago
(wwwmillstonemercantile.blogspot.com)


the little antique hooked rug
 was found here in the basement of the farmhouse 
when we first moved in...
it was filthy and rolled into a ball.

I cleaned it up and now it is a gentle reminder of our homes past ~
and reflects my love of textile art...

Next will be the curtains,
then rehanging of some of the smaller decorative things we have chosen to freshen up this room...

tell me what you think of our progress thus far??

Love it! It looks so much cleaner which is a great thing for a bathroom. Your sink stand is beautiful - adds the rustic touch.
Cup of tea and bubble bath are just waiting for you.

I love the new bathroom....The sink is inspired. I am quite liking the feed sacks on window. When finished don't forget to do a before/after.

Love your bathroom makeover, it is primitively charming! Love the paint colors and the wood floor turned out amazing. The wooden dry sink under the pedestal sink is so wonderful. Lucky gal to have such a creative and talented husband.

Jeanne said...

Love the fresh new lighter look!

Mugwump Woolies said...

Great new look! The bit of color on the dry sink pulls out the colors in the rug...and, if I member correctly, your fabric for the curtain will be the icing on the cake!
Well done Team Brechlin!

I love your bathroom Lori! That dry sink is the bomb!!! It's just the perfect touch. I'm not tired of seeing your transformation at all. Thanks for showing us. Hugs, Lori

Jacqueline said...

Very calming and sweet. Sort of a clean slate that can be changed out with any color of decorations

Wonderful and amazing result, Peter did a great job!!!

It's easy to see why you are so excited. It looks awesome! My husband did something similar in our bathroom, too. We love having the sink on top of an old piece. Brings the antique feeling into the bathroom.

Primitive Stars said...

Love love love!!!!! What a wonderful farmhouse bathroom, that sink looks so wonderful. Francine.

Saundra said...

I totally love the new fresh bath and have never tired of seeing updates. Your hubby did a great job with the faux back to hide the pipes. Or at least I'm guessing that is what he did because I see nothing showing the drain. Smart and talented man you married!

Barb said...

I love it! It looks so bright and pretty! The sink idea is wonderful!

Carolyn Boutilier said...

The bathroom is lovely! I love the drysink,such a great idea. Hugs,Jen

Susan McShannon-Monteith said...

She (the bathroom) stands like a true soul. Remove all the makeup, go back to the bare bone basics and there is indeed much beauty hidden beneath...with a little help from Hubby of course.
It looks great especially that fantastic sink stand and the warmth of the old wood floors.
Enjoy!

Karen said...

So nice! It all works together so well. My home is done in lighter colors too and it is so soothing. I thought the burlap curtains went well with the color tones and added another texture element. Now I can wait to see what you put up!
