A historic home doesn’t have to sacrifice contemporary style. One homeowner used creative, DIY solutions to renew her vintage farmhouse bath and bring it into the modern age.
Before: Dated and Dull
Patterned wallpaper and beadboard gave this bathroom a dated look. Not only did it not fit with the rest of the historic farmhouse, but the homeowner had no room for modern-day amenities, like a walk-in shower. But with a can-do attitude—and a bevy of tools—the homeowner created the bath of her dreams.
After: Vintage Renewal
Considering form, function, and floor space, the homeowner swapped out a pedestal sink in her master bath for a homemade storage-rich vanity that wraps around a vintage sink found curbside. The outside bottom of the vintage sink is painted with the same navy paint used on the walls to bring the color scheme full circle.
