DIY Vanity Light

I have had so many people ask about Evie's bathroom light lately and realized that I forgot to make a detailed post about it after the big bathroom REVEAL.  I looked for weeks on end for an affordable brass barnyard inspired wall sconce... Long story short, I never could find one under $150...This Restoration Hardware sconce was my favorite from day one.  Especially after putting it onto the design board, but could not get myself to spend that much on a bathroom vanity light. ($219) 

We decided that we would attempt to paint a fixture to achieve the look we were shooting for in order to stay within our budget.  I found this sconce at Home Depot for $30 and hoped and prayed it would be a close match after a pretty little paint job.  


We used my go-to spray paint, Design Master, in Brilliant Gold.  (Also used on our DIY gold bracket shelving!)

Lighting is such an important element in any room, so I was nervous the sconce would be lackluster and look cheap-y.  However, I really do think it turned out fabulous!  Especially since we saved almost $200! What do you think?!

Thanks for stopping by, friends!!

Master Bathroom Inspiration

Since we have been renovating the kitchen for a while now, I decided I needed a change of scenery and should start looking for inspiration for our Master Bathroom.  If you forgot what the gorgeous before picture of the bathroom looked like, see HERE.  

We took down a wall to expand the square footage of this room because the old bathroom literally was the size of a broom closet.  You could turn on the sink faucet and bathtub faucet simultaneously while sitting on the toilet. It was horrible!!  The room is currently stripped down to the studs and awaiting sheet rock installation.  I am so excited for a new/ clean/ bigger bathroom! 

I rounded up my favorite bathrooms that I have pinned throughout the last couple of months.  There are all pretty similar...Bright spaces with an eclectic feel... I am in love with these patterned artisan floor tiles right now and would not mind a beautiful herringbone tile floor either.  Sorry, babe!  All of those tile cuts will be brutal but SO worth it!!

Key Elements:

bright white walls

statement floor

claw foot tub

mixed metal fixtures

Looks like I need to start looking for an antique claw foot tub...Thanks for keeping up with our renovation journey, friends!
