I’m all about farmhouse, industrial, rustic style. After-all, we do live out in the country on a ranch.
Naturally, I was getting an itch that just couldn’t be scratched without some DIY.
I wanted to make the boy’s bathroom a little more masculine looking.
With a few minor changes, and of course some chalk paint, we had a whole new look for their bathroom. By swapping existing light fixtures, getting new mirrors that I chalk painted, we were able to achieve a totally different feel!
The new mirrors were a chunky wood framed mirror from Lowes that I was able to chalk paint using Graphite from Annie Sloan Chalk paint. (read more about chalk paint here)
The new light fixtures also came from Lowes, click to view them
Here is how it looked with the light fixtures changed and the new mirrors as they came, not chalkpainted.
I really wanted a dark framed mirror but couldn’t find one that I liked. So out came the good ol’ chalk paint to achieve the look I wanted. The graphite really pulled in the grey tones in the granite and hardware finish color.. AS WELL AS take care of me not obsessing about clashing wood colors between our cabinets and the wood tile floor.
