Hello friends and welcome to Week 7 of the One Room Challenge and the final reveal of my Modern Farmhouse bathroom! Today is the day that designers and bloggers have been working on and documenting for the last six weeks. Transforming spaces, designing, demoing, styling. For some of us It’s been 6 weeks of excitement, breakdowns, sore backs and questions as to why the heck we agreed to do it! Lol. Well today is the day we share the culmination of everything we’ve been working towards. You can follow along with my previous weeks to see the process here:

One Room Challenge Modern Farmhouse Bathroom The Reveal
I decided to do the main bathroom on the second floor. It’s small and is basically used as a guest bathroom for my daughter and son in law when they come to visit. I had recently painted it white in the hopes of making it a little brighter but nothing could brighten the black tiles that covered the tub and shower enclosure. I thought it would be the perfect candidate for a reno/makeover.
So let’s see what we started with!
You can see that black tile I was talking about!
The Final Reveal!
I basically threw everything that I love into one small room! Shiplap, white subway tiles, cement tiles, wood, linen, what’s not to love?
This black and white floor tile is the star of the show and I absolutely love it! The tile was definitely worth the splurge and using it in a smaller space made it more affordable. It may be on trend now but I didn’t mind making a trendy statement in a little space. I also used white subway tile, It’s simple, classic and you can never go wrong with that!
The Metrie Shiplap was one of the easiest projects we did in this bathroom and next to the floor tile, is my favourite thing! It’s Metrie’s Complete shiplap and comes pre-primed and pre-painted in “Polar White” a gorgeous clean, crisp white. I can’t tell you how beautiful this shiplap looks in person. It’s has a beautiful and uniform finish and looks like it was professionally installed. I want this all over my home now! You can see how we installed it here.
I changed up the original lighting I had chosen in my vision board. I realized that we didn’t have the room to have the sconces I had planned on. The lighting I installed is part of the Home Decorators Collection lighting from the Home Depot and is perfect for the space.
Isn’t this little wooden stool so cute? It’s the perfect size for my small bathroom and a great place to set a book, cup and candle on when you’re taking a bath. All these great accessories in our bathroom are from Homesense.
We chose to use the over the door rack to hang all the towels on. I loved this shiplap so much I didn’t want to ruin it by placing hooks into it! I wanted to keep the bathroom as clean and clutter free as possible. The rack is also great for holding some bathrobes for your guests when they come to visit. I found these lovely turkish towels and bathrobes along with the rack at Homesense!

Thanks so much for following along on this makeover journey with us! This was our first real reno and there were a lot of ups and downs, problems that we weren’t sure how to deal with and lots of youtube video watching! We were the designers, contractors and tradesmen for this project. Next time I think I just want to design and leave the rest of the work to the real tradesmen 😉 Thanks to Linda from Calling it Home for hosting another great Challenge. Be sure to follow along with all the other designers and participants to see their finished projects.
Thanks to all our Sponsors who helped to make this makeover possible!
Wow that looks amazing!!!
Thank you sweety pie! 🙂

Mireille Nayler says
Wow!!!! It’s fabulous!!! Great Job Kim!!! ???
Aww thanks so much Mireille, I appreciate that! 🙂
Looks great! Can’t wait to christen it.
Looks beautiful. How did you finish the shiplap edge along the tub surround tile? I love the fresh clean look!
Thank you! It’s butted up against the plastic tile edge. I then caulked that seam. Metrie has a caulk that is the exact same colour as the shiplap.:)

It looks amazing lady, like a spa! I LOVE that floor tile! You put all of the things I love into one room too! I’m curious, worth it? 😉 I know you weren’t sure it would be with all the blood, sweat and tears you guys put in. <3

Vanessa@Decor Happy says
Hey Kim! I thought I had commented but I guess not – boo me! Anyway, you know I LOVE what you did. That Metrie shiplap is brilliant and I just love the classic subway with the modern floor tile. You must be loving using your bathroom. Great job!!
Thank you Vanessa, I appreciate that!
Deirdre Pickford says
What a beautiful makeover!! Going to use it as my inspiration for my bathroom redo…what colour grout did you use for the subway tile? Since it’s my kids bathroom I’m thinking gray although I love the look of white!! P,S. Your new house looks gorgeous!!
Hi Deirdre, thanks so much, Appreciate it! I’m trying to remember…I think it was a light grey that we used. Sorry I couldn’t be more help. I love white too and did that with our old kitchen backsplash but it was difficult to see the tile when it was all white so I believe we did a light grey to add some contrast so the tile stood out. Hope this helps!
I need to know how to find this shower curtain! Planning my bathroom remodel and it’s SO similar to yours. I actually saw one of your pictures on Pinterest posted by someone else and hunted down until I found the original post to try and find the curtain and read all about it. So glad I found this post but so upset I can’t “shop online at homesense! If you happen to know the brand ide love to know!! Thank you for sharing!!
Hi Jenna! Oh goodness I’m sorry that I don’t know the brand. We moved out of that house otherwise I’d check for you. If it’s any help, it’s just a simple window curtain with a frilled edge, not even a shower curtain. Simply add a plastic liner behind it. 🙂
