Finished Bathroom...finally!

I know we are slow moving, but oh well, it's the price we pay for doing everything ourselves.  We are all enjoying our new bathroom very much. Here are some pictures of the (95%) complete space.

With some inspiration from our trip to France (which I can't believe was 1 year ago!).
The color on the walls and furniture is very close to the paint color in the home we rented in the french countryside.  The rustic variations in the flooring reminds us of the gorgeous stone seen everywhere around France.

 Baskets to hide the bandaids, tissue box and other bathroom essentials.

Photos taken in Paris and framed in rustic grey barn wood frames add some color to our neutral walls.

The dresser which was given to me by a special friend has been made over using Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint as our vanity.
My husband made a new top for it to hold the greige marble sink.

More on the paint finish in a future post.

Another tribute to our trip!

I am having fun with the accessories in here.

These previously pewter sconces also received special treatment to match the oil rubbed bronze faucet.
I also painted the shades! more on that to come.

A favorite photo turned canvas giclee in a barn wood frame. 

Hope you enjoyed the tour of our new bathroom space all done on a tight budget. 
The details with some how-to and resources will be posted soon!
Have a great week!

Love the bathroom. Just curious, you mention a tight budget, do you mind sharing what your budget was for this make over? Thanks.

Your bathroom turned out beautifully. I love that dresser turned vanity! I'd love it if you would share this at "What We Accomplished Wednesday," at Green Willow Pond. It is live right now. Have a great week!

Hi Lori,
I am still working on the details of the budget numbers and will post it soon. But I can tell you a few ways we kept costs low. The vanity, hutch and sconces were all pieces we had - just given a makeover. My husband and I (mostly my husband) did all the work himself including plumbing and electric. It was a complete DIY which is a fraction of a contractor's price but it does take a bit of time when you are only working on it a few hours on the weekends. It's the price we pay for doing it ourselves!
