Modern Vintage Bathroom Makeover

This post is sponsored by Lowe’s but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Ahhhh we made it!! It’s the final week of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling it Home and we successfully renovated our master en suite in 6 weeks and turned it into the modern vintage bathroom of our dreams! I couldn’t be more in love with this room and am DYING to share it with you guys!

If you want to see where we started and all the progress we made you can follow along from the start: Week 1 :: Week 2 :: Week 3 :: Week 4 :: Week 5.

One Room Challenge

MODERN VINTAGE BATHROOM REVEAL

Let’s take a quick look down memory lane and what this room used to look like.

Anndddd here’s where we are now…come on in! (I’ll share links to everything at the bottom of the post)

Thank you sooo much to everyone who chimed in on my basket debate on instagram…I ended up going with a combo of the round baskets and I love them! There’s nothing in them yet, but they’re the perfect added storage for us.

And can we talk about these gorgeous floors from Lowe’s? They really opened up this space and made it feel huge.

This corner was so awkward and really challenged me but I’m super happy with this little nook we created. I just didn’t feel like I’d use a vanity area very much so this just made more sense.

And when you turn the corner…ahh this view! I don’t even know where to begin!

That shower door is seriously what dreams are made of. It was the very last thing we put in and it totally tied the whole room together.

I don’t think we realized how HUGE this shower was going to be once we knocked down the walls and built the new ones. We kept the floor the same as the rest of the floor tile and used these 6×6 tiles on the wall.

I’m so happy with how this DIY Ladder Shelf turned out…it was such an easy project so be sure to check out my tutorial!

Oh and hello gorgeous rain shower head and vintage rug.

Moving on to the tub…I still haven’t used it yet because we need to put a couple more coats of sealer on it to protect it from the water but I.CAN’T.WAIT.

I’m in love with all these gorgeous brass fixtures. I was a little worried about the placement of this faucet but it was really the only place we could put it and I think it works.

I originally bought some brackets to put a shelf above the toilet but there just didn’t seem like there was enough room so I went with a simple macrame wall hanging I made instead.

Gahh I couldn’t be more in love with this antique vanity I scored on Craigslist. It’s PERFECT.

I paired it with some gorgeous brass sconces on either side of a wood mirror and love how they all play off of one another. Lighting can be tricky to choose but I followed some tips from my friend Ashley on choosing the right size for a wall sconce. It was so helpful!

Here’s the view from inside the shower…I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of it.

Oh and see that fan in the shower? It’s also a blue tooth speaker so you can jam out while you’re getting clean. Best decision ever.

I’d say our second One Room Challenge was a success 😉 I can’t believe the transformation and how far this space has come. We couldn’t have done it without our awesome contractor Paul Frease (if you’re local look him up!) and my FIL and hubs. They all rock and put up with my crazy ideas.

And a HUGE thanks to Lowe’s for making this all possible and providing product for our new dream modern vintage bathroom!

    Your bathroom is so gorgeous! This is a great inspiration. Putting that nook in the corner is so perfect. Plus the ladder shelves, speakers, and choice of tiles, everything in it blended well. I also observed the tiles were up to the ceiling in the shower?

    Hi Bre –
    I love what you’ve done with everything! I’m currently starting a master bath project and am using so much of this as inspiration. I have a question about the shower door. Our house is from the 1920’s, so I’ve been looking at some of the paned glass shower doors to keep with the classic vibe. Not cheap, as you know. The one you used is very reasonable and seems easy to install. How do you feel about the plastic appliqué used to mimic the metal-frames though? I love how it looks in your photos, but was just wondering if the quality translates in person. Does it look or feel fake? Thanks in advance for your opinion!

      Hi Gabrielle! Thank you so much! And I love it! You really don’t notice that it’s not a metal frame and it looks very sleek and modern so I would definitely recommend it!

    I’m obsessed with your master! We are renovating and I’m determined to get this look in my master. I’m having an impossible time finding two mid century dressers! Were you nervous to not put a top on it? Everyone is telling me I really need to, that is if I ever find two pieces that will work together. It’s absolutely gorgeous!!!!

      Hi Leslie! The dresser already had a veneer on it so it’s been holding up great so far! I thought about putting a marble top or something more durable on it but it wipes down quite easily and hasn’t left any stains or water marks!

    Hey there! I absolutely love your bathroom remodel and like everyone else, the shower door is gorgeous. I’m considering it for a project I’m working on and have a quick question. At only 36″ wide have you had any issues with water splashing out of the shower? Thanks!!

      September 25, 2017

      Hi Heather! It only sprays out very minimally and I always put a regular bath mat right outside so the rug doesn’t get wet and that works perfectly! It also helps to have a rain type shower head where the water shoots straight down and not out at an angle. Hope that helps, we really love it!

        Awesome idea with the dresser! I have this exact bedroom set just collecting dust in a spare bedroom. You should see how big the mirror is that came attached to the back of this very dresser. It would be perfect in your space too!
        Let me know if you might be interested in it. We don’t have the budget to do anything with it…

    Hi Bre! This room is so inspiring to me! I seriously cannot get over the transformation! WOW! You have some serious style.

    I’m thinking of converting a mid-century dresser into a vanity for a bathroom reno for a client. Did you end up finding a taller than average dresser for this project? I’m just curious because mid-cent dressers are usually about 30″ high which really seems low for a bathroom vanity. Please let me know your solution or if you think the height is ok?? I see the sink adds a bit of height here.

    Thanks in advance and thanks for keeping all of us updated with your beautiful home reno!

      Aw thank you so much Abby! So our vanity is about 31″ and with the sink it makes it 36″. I honestly don’t have any issues with it and think it’s the perfect height! For frame of reference I’m on the tallerish side (5’7″) and it works great for me. Hope that helps!

Do you still love your wood bath apron or do wish you’d gone with a wood look tile? My husband takes baths at night & is not the neatest bather. Just curious. Thanks so much!

    Bre – I’ve been following you for some time – through two rentals – and now in this wonderful big but dated home. I thought I absolutely loved what you did to your laundry room but this bathroom knocks me off my feet – or chair, as it is. You are a wonderful designer and I hope you get the recognition you deserve on a national level. I love the shower door, yes, but I love everything else also. The only thing I would have done differently is to skip the ladder shelf and use that wall to hang large fluffy towels or soft terry bathrobes on gold-toned hooks so they are convenient when getting out of the shower and to add to your very elegant spa atmosphere. Oh, yes – the rug. It is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen in that style. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. I can’t wait to see your next project!!

    This bathroom is absolute perfection. FANTASTIC job!!! I have been eyeing that exact shower panel for months hoping to use it in our bathroom remodel. I was so excited to see it here and that you gave it a positive review! My husband worries that it will be too cold without an official “door” though. Have you had any issues?

      May 22, 2017

      Thank you so much Claire!! I was worried about that too and I will say I wish it was a little longer for our space (not sure how big your shower will be) but it does stay pretty warm in there! We have a fan on the ceiling on the outside with a heater that helps keep the space warm – but you could also think about putting a heated fan right in the shower! Also, our room is quite large and there is no official door so everything is pretty open which definitely doesn’t help so if you’re room is smaller it probably wouldn’t be much of an issue. But overall – we don’t really notice it being too cold!

    This is so beautiful! And I kid you not, it’s so close to what I’m planning for our own bathroom remodel it’s uncanny, haha! I also scored a gorgeous mid-century dresser off craigslist for our vanity, and so many of the other details are extremely similar. I’m glad to see I still like it all finished and not just in my head! But I’ll be lucky if mine is done in 6 months vs. 6 weeks. What was supposed to just be a regular, old remodel has turned into a half full-gut-renovation/half tear-down-to-the-ground-and-start-from-the-foundation-up! But thanks for another pin to add to my renovation boards! Such a great bathroom!

    Oh. My. God. It is SO BEAUTIFUL! What a change! That shower door! The vanity! The shelf! And oh my, the tub! Your ORCs are seriously the best ever… I’m kind of excited that you live in a house with so many TLC-needing rooms, it means we’ll get to see lots more of those incredible transformations 😉

    WOW. WOW. WOW!

    I can’t say it enough, I LOVE it! The shower door is amazing, and a great price! I do not know how you pulled this off in 6 weeks, but GREAT job!
