Our budget friendly farmhouse master bathroom has been a major evolution over the past couple years since we moved into our fixer upper. When we first moved in, I wasn’t even planning on doing a farmhouse master bathroom. I didn’t know what my design plans were. I just knew that something needed to happen, but there were bigger fish to fry as we renovated the rest of the house.
So our master bathroom sat..boring and bare hidden in the back of our house. That’s usually true with most renovations I think. You typically do the master bedroom and bathroom last because it’s least likely to be seen by guests. It’s true over here at least. 2.5 years of renovating and I still haven’t finished decorating the master bedroom. Shhh…it’s getting there.
But during the cold and LONG winter, Logan and I got a bit of a DIY bug after a binge session of Fixer Upper. It was shiplap time, so we added a budget friendly faux shiplap wall and floating shelves. These DIY projects alone completely transformed the master bathroom and brought in tons of the farmhouse charm I was looking for. This is definitely a budget friendly farmhouse master bathroom. The shiplap wall cost us less than $15 and you’ll see based on the source list at the end of this post that a lot of the decor was DIYed or collected from thrift stores or flea markets.

The master bathroom is small. So much so that I rounded up Small Bathroom Organization Tips because I was looking at them so much.
The master bathroom is awkward. Our master bathroom was really hideous. Here’s where we started when we moved in to our fixer upper. You may recognize these pics from our pre reno hone tour.
Ready to see our new farmhouse master bathroom!?
Come on in!
Our farmhouse master bathroom certainly come a long way, hasn’t it?!!
Ok, ok…. I took one million photos of this tiny little bathroom and I tried to narrow it down, but this post will be really photo heavy. That’s what you want to see anyway, right!?
I had a blast making this fun Rub A Dub Dub sign. Tutorial coming soon!
Let’s take another look at those farmhouse shelves. I had so much fun decorating these!
When you turn around from the shelves…
Someday we plan on doing a full renovation in this bathroom with a glass shower to open the small bathroom up, new pedestal sink, flooring…the whole shabang. But until then, we decided to do a budget friendly farmhouse master bathroom making the best of what we have. Which means using this vanity cabinet that I don’t love. Luckily you can decorate around the things you don’t love. 🙂
I’m going to tell you the story behind this amazing vintage vanity cabinet very soon. This cabinet really started the inspiration behind our farmhouse master bathroom design plans. Here she is in all her chippy paint glory.
Love this watercolor art I had made custom just for this space from my very good friend at Handmade Marissa Ronae on Etsy. I thought it was a fitting quote because the first thing I do in the morning is go brush my teeth at this sink. 🙂
Love the vintage style of the “new” light above our cabinet. We transformed our old boring light and it was so easy! Can’t wait to share this trick with you!
Every great bathroom needs some pretty jewelry storage, right?
I fell in love with the texture of this shower curtain, but when I went to install it, it was too short! Silly me, I thought all shower curtain lengths were the same. I’m going to show you how I fixed this issue soon, stay tuned!
One of my favorite things about those farmhouse shelves is the coordinates sign. This was made by The Mtn Bluebird Co on Etsy.
I had a blast making this fun ombre painted sign! Check out the full tutorial here.
Ah! I love all the little details of our farmhouse master bathroom.
Ok before we go, let’s take one more look at the before and after shots from when we moved in because they are so fun!
