Farmhouse Master Bathroom Reveal

The day is finally here! Our small farmhouse master bathroom is everything I wanted it to be: budget-friendly, more open, full of shiplap, farmhouse shelves and chippy paint signs.

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.

This post contains affiliate links, but nothing that I wouldn’t wholeheartedly recommend anyway! Read my full disclosure here.

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 home tour.

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 chat all about the story behind this amazing vintage vanity cabinet on this post. 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. 🙂

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. Read how I fixed this shower curtain that was too short!

One of my favorite things about those farmhouse shelves is the coordinates sign. This was made by The Mtn Bluebird Co on Etsy.

  1. Oh Chelsea I just love love this bathroom!!!’ I want to do something like this in Kristas bathroom someday when all the wallpaper comes down… it turned out absolutely perfect!! You rock my sweet daughter!! ❤️

  2. The walls in the before picture look textured, and smooth in the redo. Curious as to what you did to them. Thanks! Nice job!

    1. Hi Elizabeth…yes! We took almost a year and did a process called skim coating to get rid of the thick texture. It was very time consuming and laborious, but I love my smooth walls. That was a “must have” item for me when we purchased the house. I don’t mind a little normal texture, but this stuff was crazy thick so I knew we needed to get rid of it. In the long run, I don’t think this is something we would DIY again. We’d probably would have saved up the money and had it done professionally so it would have been done quicker, but we just didn’t have the money….so we learned how to skim coat and lived in a reno zone for over a year. Whew, glad that’s over. Let me know if you have any more questions 🙂

  3. Hi, saw your post on Hometalk so came here to see more pictures. Love what you did on a limited budget. Why not paint that vanity? White wash or use the mint green to match the medicine cabinet. Fixing up the vanity light instead of buying a new one was a great idea. I had an ugly gold plated light that had three glass shades and I painted the metal dark green and it made it kind of looks like flower petals and I am tempted to keep it when we finally redo our master. That’s an unusual set up you had to work with but it turned out really cute!

    1. Hi Kathleen. Thanks for your comment! I didn’t want to spend any more money on it because we don’t plan on keeping it on the long run. I did, however, get the idea of white washing it so I think I’m going to give that I try soon. It’s on my to-do list.

    1. Hi Tammie….The reason I didn’t originally paint the vanity is because eventually we are going to replace in when we do a more involved renovation in this room, but the more I look at it, the more tempted I am to do SOMETHING. I’m thinking a white wash to lighten it up a bit.
