We are restoring a tiny 1920s cottage we purchased in an auction a month ago… without walking through! We did peek through every window 1000000 times & were confident we could make this little home beautiful again. The current state of the bathroom is a bit scary! While the rest of the house has been painted the loveliest shade of white, the bathroom is still lath and plaster, but also it’s THE tiniest bathroom I have ever seen. Before we closed on the house we found an old clawfoot tub to restore to keep with the era of the home. Clawfoot’s are heavy, but not too long, I didn’t even question if it would fit, but it ended up being 1 inch, 1 inch(!!!) too long…so we are saving it for another home. I ended up finding a 54” tub from Signature Hardware that will fit perfectly. We had to go all out and have the soaking tub to make up for the fact that this bathroom is so tiny. It’s going to be the sweetest little oasis!
Here’s our story board. All these pretty textiles are just piled in one of the rooms waiting to be installed, I cannot wait!
The tub & pedestal sink are from Signature Hardware
School house vanity light- Wayfair
Marble Hexagon tile is for the floor, ah! Iron towel hooks, antique brass faucets-Amazon (i know, right) The tile was only $8 a sq ft, whaaaat!
We will be doing a DIY shiplap 3/4 of the way up the walls
Paint color throughout the house is Glidden’s Wedding White
and here is the current state of the tiny bath…
