Modern Farmhouse Bathroom Mood Board



It has certainly been awhile since I shared my last home decor blog post and the only reveal I have ever done in this house was Sophia's Nursery. We have lived here for 4 years already and if you have been around the blog for awhile you will remember how unexpected and last minute buying this house was and while I would have loved to already have the house exactly the way I envisioned all those years ago, more unexpected and wonderful and hard things happened. 

Most aspects of our lives are looking better and relief has been lifted for the most part. We (by we, I mean me haha) have even started dreaming about finally making this house into a home now that Anthony is working again and some major repairs have been done on our house - there are still a few more major (and minor) repairs we need but we are praying about our options before forking out a good chunk of change for the remaining major repairs. With that, we are not sure how long we will stay in this home but decided no matter the length of time, we want to enjoy our surroundings so the first project up is our hall bathroom.

If you caught my stories on Instagram then you know we have been dealing with mold issues in our master bathroom because of improper caulking by previous owners and mold issues in the hall bathroom because of leaking faucets (told you there are a lot of repairs that need to happen in this house). Due to the lengthy process of removing caulk, we wouldn't be able to use the master shower therefore we need to fix the leaking issue in the hall bathroom so we can use the hall shower/tub while we work on cleaning out the master shower. We have accumulated some gift cards to various stores that will actually help us be able to not only replace the necessities but also make the hall bathroom pretty instead of boring builder grade which has lead me to create a mood board. 

As ya'll may remember, I have struggled finding inspiration or a direction for this bathroom forever but inspiration finally hit after Cassie from Hi Sugarplum revealed their Powder Bathroom last summer:

Isn't it breathtaking? Now you are probably wondering where the heck I got farmhouse from as Cassie's bathroom is just full on glam. I have mix taste but most of my taste is farmhouse, cottage, vintage, antiques, etc however I also love pops of color (most farmhouse decor is neutral) and some modern elements which is how I tied in my personal taste of all things farmhouse with modernish touches.

Here is our to-do list to make this restroom fully functional and pretty:
Replace tub faucet
Clean/bleach, do something to the tub, haha
Replace toilet seat
Replace sink faucet
Add a shower rod
Purchase shower curtain/liner/hooks 
(I am planning to buy this washable shower liner and these shower curtain hooks)
Paint walls & ceiling - white 
(I am not using any special color just a regular ol white that I happen to have in my garage)
Paint cabinet - white or black?
Paint door to match trim
Scrub floors
Paint floors or install tile?
Replace light fixture?
Add decor elements

Figuring out the floor situation and light fixture will ultimately depend on how long we decide to stay in this home. I would love to paint the cabinet black but this bathroom doesn’t get any natural light and the current lighting sucks plus my shower curtain of choice is dark so I think painting the cabinet white would help brighten it up so right now I am leaning more towards white, what do y’all think?

And because I love seeing a good before and after, I took a few “before” photos to share before we get started (although these were taken after I did a much needed deep clean, haha).




As you can see there are some decor elements I already have on hand that I shared in my mood board. I do want to make note that the pitcher that I have is not the one I linked, I found mine at goodwill years ago so if you are on a budget I would suggest shopping around thrift stores and goodwill before buying new but if not, the one I linked is fairly similar to the one I have. I couldn't find a similar copper tub that was the same or similar sizing as mine which is why I didn't link anything (the one in the mood board is actually ginormous) and if I remember correctly, I bought mine at Target years ago so maybe try there first.

So now that you see were we are starting and were we would like to go with our hall bathroom, white or black cabinets?
