Before and After Farmhouse Bathroom Remodel

Update 5-16-17: Due to the overwhelming interest in this post I am in the process of putting together a package that will include all the specifications on this design of this bathroom. It will include floor plan with dimensions, paint colors, where everything is from. Head over to Design plan is available here.
I love before and after’s and thought I would share my downstairs bathroom that was just renovated. If you have been a follower of this blog it has been a lengthy remodel it started as a itty bitty powder room and carved out a full bathroom.

Here are the before it is too small to actually get in the bathroom to take a decent photo.
We bumped out into the adjacent room that was too big and had wasted space. Originally there were 2 rooms and they turned it into 1 with a powder room and closet. We blow out the closet and powder room.

Tour of my home

It has been forever since I have posted any progress photos from my home.

Some of our projects seem like they take so long. The saying is very true in our house the shoemakers children’s go barefoot.

Our house is a small old farmhouse with all sorts of charm.

Local Spotlight


I wanted to spotlight a great new store that I found recently. Ms. Fit in Fayetteville NY.

My Photo

Ms. Fit Clothing ltd. is run by
"The Girls" Mary and Inez have been in business for thirty-one years and have enjoyed making the women of today a bit more stylish. "We have always been about dressing a sophisticated, modern, independent women with fresh fashion ideas"

I had gotten to know Inez a bit this summer before even going in her shop. I was always envious of her cool, casual look wondering where in the world did she find her clothes, I now know. I stopped in the other day and was blown away by the creative charge I received from the store. As a lover of fabrics and details I could not get over all the inspiration the clothing held.

Inez is awesome at pulling together outfits that I would have never imagined. She defiantly took me out of my comfort zone and that is exactly what I have been looking for. I love their philosophy on clothing which is similar to mine on the lines I carry for the home. It needs to be easy maintenance: wash, dry, wear.

Some of the designers they carry:


Krista Larsen I think is my favorite

KL 1

KL 2


Closer runner up is Magnolia Pearl






Other lines they carry Rundholz, Deca, Kokomarina and of course accessories: Robert Clergerie and Chan Luu.
