Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover and Barn Door with Rustica Hardware



We did it!! It's been a long process but we finally have our bathroom makeover complete! If you read my post before this one, on the renovation progress, you would have learned that this bathroom is actually our master bathroom. Built in the 1960's...it's super small. We took the bathroom down to the studs and came up with a solution to make it appear bigger than it actually is.


Ok...I managed to do every bloggers worst nightmare...lost all the before pics of the bathroom before tearing it out! Sigh...but to give you a picture, it was an enclosed shower with bright colored turquoise tiles, with matching tiles on the walls. The shower was so dark and small, I don't even know how it was enjoyable. I do, however, have a before pic of when the new drywall was up.



My plan for the bathroom was all white ship-lap, vintage looking black and white hexagon tiles, and a a glass shower enclosure.

Before, the door swung into the bathroom, making it even more difficult to maneuver in. We decided to install a sliding barn door to solve this issue. We found the most beautiful hardware from Rustica Hardware! My husband built the barn door and we installed the hardware.




I wanted something to fit in with our decor style, I instantly fell in love with thier H Strap style hardware in the color "Antique Pewter". Isn't it gorgeous? I love the uniqueness of them. The track and the hardware was super easy to install as well. I highly recommend Rustica Hardware, their quality and customer service is amazing.



Here is a look into the bathroom! Funny story about the vintage rattan shelf...my original plan was to install wood shelves above the toilet for storage. In the back of my mind though, I knew I wanted something unique. You see, the previous owners and builders of this house was my husband's grandparents. After they passed, most of the items his family didn't want was left in the house. I have been in our basement hundreds of times and never paid much attention to this shelf hanging in a dark corner. One day, when I went down to do laundry, it hit me...this shelf would look amazing on white ship-lap walls! So I brought it up and here it is in all its glory!


I kept the items on it minimal yet functional.


This little gold box belonged to my grandmother who passed away way too young. If you know me, you know how much I love adding personal items with meaning to my decor.



I searched long and hard for the right mirror for the sink. I had my heart set on an antique vanity mirror but I have yet to find one. I love this one from Hobby Lobby, but I am still on the lookout for an antique one.


These patent prints of a razor and toothbrush came from The Wooded Lane.


We went with white subway tiles. I love the round glass shower enclosure. It really makes the bathroom appear much larger and gives us more room as opposed to the square closed in one before.





I added some Christmas cheer with a wreath on the barn door.






I wanted to give a special thanks to Rustica Hardware for sponsoring hardware for our barn door. They have an amazing line of ready made barn doors as well. Also thanks to Sweet B's Photography! I've linked sources for the bathroom remodel below. I would love your feedback on our makeover! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the tour!

Bathroom and Barn Door Progress with Rustica Hardware

Over the past few months we have been working hard renovating our small master bathroom. We live in an old house that belonged to my husbands' grandparents. The bathroom in our master bedroom is very small compared to master baths today.

Here is the bathroom right after the drywall was installed. My husband completed all the work himself, including the drywall, plumbing, and tile installation.

Girl's Room Reveal | One Room Challenge


If you are new to my blog, welcome! My name is Daraka and I am a home decor and lifestyle blogger from Oklahoma. I love farmhouse decor and mixing new and old pieces. It's week 6 and the final reveal for the One Room Challenge hosted by Linda of Calling It Home.  Over 200 bloggers took the challenge of making over a room in just 6 short weeks.  This is my first time to join in and I am participating as a "guest participant" and I'm super excited to have made it to the end.

I took the challenge of turning my daughter's nursery into a little girl's room.  To see my original planning and process through the last 6 weeks click the links below.

I couldn't be more thrilled with how the room turned out. I'm happy to finally share it with you!


I based the whole room with this iron bed I already had and went from there. I knew I wanted to use a floral wallpaper behind the bed and found exactly what I was looking for from D. Marie Interiors. I came across her page on Instagram and fell in love with the papers she offers. Click here to find this wallpaper print.

Fall Outdoor Tablescape



Hello fiends! I've joined up with 6 blogger friends to bring you all Thanksgiving tablescape ideas with a fall recipe!
 
It's my absolute favorite time of year! Cozy blankets and sweaters, hot apple cider, crisp air, and football of course, are just a few reasons why I love fall. Knowing we are in the month of November always brings on that anxious feeling of celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas! One of the things I love most is creating memories and traditions, I try and make everything as memorable as I can for my three daughters for each holiday that comes. At the beginning of fall, we created a "fall bucket list" together and have been checking an item off each weekend. Having a fall picnic was one of the things they wanted to do so I thought..why not have dinner outdoors one night and make it something special they can remember? It also gave me an excuse to decorate another Thanksgiving/fall themed tablescape!

Lighting | One Room Challenge Week 4

http://www.callingithome.com/blog/2016/10/one-room-challenge-guest-participants-week-2

It's week 4 of the One Room Challenge and I've made some major progress! I hung a chandelier from Lamps Plus, got the first coat of paint on the wall from Sherwin Williams (pictures coming next week), and my wallpaper came in from D. Marie Interiors. I have to say, I'm more excited than ever! All the pieces are coming together and I cannot wait to get the room styled.

OK...so how gorgeous is this light from Lamps Plus?! It's the Nicolli Clear 16" Crystal chandelier found HERE.  I'm totally obsessed with it, it's what I dreamed of when planning her big girl room. When the chandelier is on, its crystals make the whole room sparkle. My little girl is definitely going to feel like a princess!
