Jill called me about updating their Guest Bedroom & Bath. She wanted a Country look for both rooms with some bright cheery colors. They wanted a walk-in Shower and more storage in the bathroom. Replace the vanity that did not function properly, due to the angled door, the drawers would not open fully. She also wanted a Farmhouse Sink in the bath! In the bedroom, Jill wanted to keep her Grandmother’s antique furniture, but replace almost everything else. After MUCH discussion with Don & Jill and several drawings by me, we came up with a plan that worked for their needs.
So here is what we came up with:
- We started with a pretty plaid fabric that had the bright green that Jill was wanting, plus some barn reds and soft neutrals for that Country Look.
- From there we chose our color palette.
- I suggested a shower base that was molded with a seat on one side. And a full glass seamless shower door to open up the tiny room and allow you to view the tile walls.
- We tiled the shower all the way to the ceiling and added a recessed light in the shower area.
- We decided to move the plumbing fixtures to the opposite wall of the shower, away from the exterior wall.
- Tile on the bath floor.
- New toilet.
- Custom Designed, Built & Painted Cabinetry with an Under-mount Farmhouse Sink in it.
- Updated the Lighting with a new light bar and a fan/light combo on the ceiling. (The fan is much quieter, per Don’s request.)
- We upgraded the Shower fixtures with a Rain Shower-head and a Handheld Shower head.
- The sink faucet is a Wall-Mounted “antique look” with a soap dish attached. Really fun for a Country Look.
- Bead-board on the walls, up 6 foot with a narrow shelf on top.
- And finally a shaped inverted pleat valance with red buttons over the shower door.
- Then we took the Bead-board into the Bedroom, but only 3 foot up to create a chair-rail.
- On the wall behind the bed, I installed a large mural with a beautiful Country scene.
- New Custom Window Treatments and Bedding which consisted of Inverted Pleat Drapery panels with Green buttons at the bottom of each pleat. The plaid went on the bed with a solid green pleated dust skirt, a pair of envelope shams and an accent pillow.
- We recovered the antique rocker seat cushion in a fun green dotted fabric.
- The angled door into the bath was changed into a Pocket-Door and moved slightly, so that the drawers would be fully functional.
- And really fun part is the new “Barn-like” Closet Doors and Bathroom Door.
- We again updated the lighting with a ceiling light/fan combo. Changed the closet lights and adjusted the spots to shine on the new Barn Doors.
What a wonderful new Country Look for the Guest Room. Now Don & Jill have to decide if they want to leave it as the Guest Room or change it into the Master Bedroom Suite? hum…
