Farmhouse Master Bathroom Reveal
I am so excited to share one of my favorite rooms in our farmhouse with you today: the master bathroom. With two chandeliers, a stunning oak vanity, and ceiling tins, it is a showstopper. The classic yet refreshing color palette of gray, white, black, and wood tones with pinks and mint green make me very happy! After a long day of playing/running with my children, working events, and just living life I am so grateful to be able to retreat to this space. I truly enjoy reflecting on the day in this clawfoot tub every night. I feel so lucky that I get to enjoy this space and I hope you do too!
*Yes, those are pink Christmas bottle brush trees in my apothecary jars on top of my vanity. I love the way they look, and the color is spot on so I keep them up year round!

My mother-in-law is the creative genius behind this bathroom. She found this oak fireplace mantel at the Round Top Antiques Fair about 15 years ago. She fell in love with the look of it, and the price was so great. So she bought it knowing she would find a special place for it. Voila! We were on the hunt for a vanity for this bathroom for a while. We kept looking at builder grade options from hardware stores since we were on a very tight deadline to move into our house. Then my mother-in-law remembered that she had this stunning oak mantel. She found the oak secretary desk (circa 1800s) that matched the lines and colors of the mantel on ebay. We had a local, fabulous carpenter renovate the secretary desk by adding the middle door (where there was none) and outfit the mantel to now be a vanity top, and he married the two beautifully. We carried the black leather granite for the vanity top from our kitchen into the master bathroom.
I absolutely love how one-of-a-kind this vanity is, and my mother-in-law’s creative idea has really inspired me to start to think out of the box when I am looking for pieces for my home at flea markets and antique markets.
The same local carpenter took the leftover corbels from the inside of the secretary (bottom of the vanity) and used them for shelves in the bathroom.
Each night I love to reflect in the bath tub with my diffuser lighting up the space as I smell lavender. The clawfoot tub was a hand-me-down from my mother-in-law’s family. The outside was painted to match the walls. The wall paint color is gray owl by Benjamin Moore. The interior of the tub shows it age, but I believe that adds to the beauty of the piece.
One of my favorite pieces in my master bathroom is the crewel embroidery art that my mother made. Not only does the artwork remind me of my childhood as it hung near my bedroom, but the story it tells means so much to me. My twin brother and I are the youngest of five children, and my mother was on bed rest with us for 5 months. She embroidered this art piece while she was waiting for our arrival. So not only do I love the color palette and the beautiful image, but I love the feelings it evokes. When I take my nightly baths I am reminded and grateful of the deep sacrifice my mother made for us, as well as the grace and love she shows me that I try to show my children. I am a true believer in filling your home with items that bring you joy and this bathroom completely does that for me.
These chandeliers are stunning statements when you walk into the room. Their light dances off the ceiling and the large vanity mirrors. Like statement earrings, I believe chandeliers add the perfect, whimsical touch to any space and I have been collecting them for years! We purchased these from Lowe’s, and they provide brilliant light and beauty!
We wanted to go with a classic black and white hexagonal tile, and my uncles did an incredible job designing and laying the tile.
This room has some incredible showstoppers, but let’s not forget about the details!
