Refreshing a small bathroom

Finally! We just finished the renovation of our little bathroom on the first floor of the house.

I have to say that it’s been pretty hectic as we did everything (or pretty much) over one weekend. We changed almost everything except the cabinets where we store our laundry products.

Changing the bathroom vanity and faucet

We wanted to create a rustic yet modern look and mix wood texture, black mat metal and patterns.

We chose the Soho vanity that offered a light wood finish. I was looking for one like this for a long time. Since this bathroom is pretty small, we had to find something that would fit in that little space. I have to say: this bathroom vanity was made for our tiny bathroom.

We also chose to put a black faucet because we already knew we would change the floor tiles for some dark patterns.

Updating the tile

For the tiles, if you don’t feel like changing everything and have limited budget, there’s a way to achieve a similar look with few products from Rona and a little creativity!

First, a primer. Second, choose your base colour in a Rust-Oleum Chalk Paint. Third, lay down your stencil and fill in with your accent colour in the same Rust-Oleum Chalk Paint. Finally, you just need to seal it all together with a sealer of your choice!

Adding a light fixture

The other piece we added to the bathroom is the decorative light fixture on top of the mirror. It gives a more modern look which is what we wanted.

The final touch was the mirror, a shelf and some greenery to add a bit of a nature touch to the bathroom.
