Eclectic farmhouse bathroom - new vanity in progress, lighting, vessel sinks and wall faucets

Master Bathroom Progress: Lighting, Faucets, Vanity, & Glass Shower Enclosure

We’re not totally finished with the master bathroom but it’s finally at the functional stage. Today I get to share the fun stuff with you guys… the finishing touches! My absolute favorite part of the remodeling process is seeing all the plans from the original mood board finally come to fruition.


Earlier this week, we talked about how we installed shiplap walls using plywood. Once the shiplap was up, we installed the light fixtures that go over the vanity. Just like in the inspiration pictures and mood board, we chose rustic black outdoor fixtures with seedy glass but these sconces are about 1/4 of the cost. Considering we had 3 vanity lights to buy, I’m more than happy with the look we got for much less! And they go with the whole combination of black, white, and wood that I was after.

We added texture to the cove ceiling with rustic pallet wood.

Light is spread throughout the rest of the room with recessed cans and energy-saving LEDs that are safe for wet areas. Jason built a gorgeous reclaimed wood geometric chandelier. I saw one just like it on several episodes of Fixer Upper but it was sold out in the Magnolia Homes store.


Stay tuned for the wooden chandelier tutorial and a giveaway after the bathroom reveal! 

DIY Fixer Upper Inspired Geometric Wood ChandelierI’m so blessed to have my mom and stepdad in my life. They’re some of the sweetest and most humble people you’ll ever meet. They own Conway Glass near Myrtle Beach, SC so if you’re ever in the area, you can attend one of their free glass blowing demonstrations. As a combination wedding and birthday gift, they gave us our glass shower enclosure.  My stepdad and Jason installed it in about an hour.

Speaking of vanity…I’m so excited about the double vanity that Jason built! The final cost for the vanity including drawer slides came close to $200.

Finally, a place to put all my makeup and hair products! I forsee a bathroom organization post in the future!
I was a little apprehensive about installing wall mount faucets but Jason talked me into it. I’m pretty sure he wishes he hadn’t because the plumbing was a little challenging for him to install but he knew that’s what I really would want from all the inspiration pictures I showed him. In the end, they are the perfect partner for the rectangular vessel sinks.

Here’s a rundown of what’s left:

Adding the bottom shelves of the vanity
Painting the vanity after I decide on a paint color. Eek!
Pouring the concrete countertops
Crown molding, baseboards, and trim around the cove ceiling
Making the vanity mirrors
Building the cubby cabinets near the shower
