There isn’t a single room in our new house that’s really pulled together and finished.
I mean, I’m totally okay with that. Or at least, I understand that I should be okay with that. Baby steps.
In truth, I’m doing my best to be content with the process, and giving myself (and Ryan) a little grace that it will clearly take time before everything feels “finished.”
And I’m so darn happy with this house that I catch myself goofy smiling when no one is around. So, we’re good.
All that to say, the downstairs bathroom is next in the line of rooms I still want to share with you. It’s not finished. But it has all the working parts, so I’m okay with that.
Having two bathrooms, you guys. It’s pretty awesome. Not having one for the past 4 years makes it very easy to appreciate.
Henry STILL doesn’t have any idea about WHY we would need two bathrooms. No matter how many times he asks why we have another bathroom downstairs, I still think it’s hilarious. He is a minimalist at heart.
This bathroom is right off the mudroom – inside the garage entrance. (Check out the full floor plan here.)
The location is super convenient for our family – easy to get to without trekking through the whole house. It’s not a huge space, but I think it’s usefulness trumps size.
I found the mirror at the local Hancock Fabrics about 6 months ago for a song. And we mounted it on the wall using a dummy door knob that matches our door locks. It was a great way to add a little interest to a tiny room.
We chose oil-rubbed bronze for all the plumbing fixtures, which I think turned out well. I still need to swap out the handles on the vanity, which I realized after I took the photos. #addittothelist
The shower curtain has been waiting for a home for about 6 or 7 years. I bought it on clearance and it just never worked in our bathrooms. But I think I like it here – it’s a nice pop of color and gives me lots of options for other decor. When I decide on other decor.
