A huge thanks to the amazing sponsors of today’s post who helped us to achieve the Industrial Farmhouse look! I received no compensation but was provided product by these awesome companies: Cost Plus World Market, Barn Light Electric, Delta Faucet. All opinions are 100% my own and I truly stand behind and love each one of these brands!
The day is finally here! I can now officially reveal our half bath makeover! This project took a lot more time than I thought originally (we started back in April), but with those few bumps along the way, we learned A LOT and can apply it to any other bathroom projects we decide to tackle. 😉
I am SO happy with the way the bathroom turned out and I love it even more because it’s a project that my husband and I did together in our home. Before we bought our house we dreamed of owning a home and having the freedom to fix it up just the way we liked, and now, we’re doing it — so surreal. We are so grateful!
If you don’t remember, here is what our bathroom looked like before:
The space felt so dark and uninviting. I wanted to brighten it up, add a touch of farmhouse charm, and also include some industrial elements.
NOTE: I apologize in advance for the quality of some of these photographs, it is SO hard to take photos in this bathroom because there is no natural light!
And now, here it is the finished bathroom:
Such a HUGE difference, right? It’s so much brighter and welcoming now! And I love the farmhouse / industrial charm it has! Joanna Gaines would definitely be proud!
Let’s do a little before and after magic before we break it down..
Crazy, right? I am so in love! We talked a little about those amazing bathroom lights in a previous post, I think they really help make the space so unique, and they really brighten up the bathroom! They were so easy to install after watching a few Youtube videos, and I just couldn’t be happier. It was my FIRST time replacing any lighting in our home, and I cannot wait to more lighting projects like this! I still can’t get over the difference it made! The lighting is from two Atomic Industrial Guard Wall Sconce. If you love that industrial / farmhouse look like I do, you have to check out Barn Light Electric!
Last week I wrote a little bit about Choosing the perfect Farmhouse Style Bathroom Faucet and shared this beauty from Delta Faucet. Again, this was another first for us – we had never replaced a faucet before, so we learned a lot! Delta Faucet has an awesome Youtube account loaded with how-to videos. So if you’re a beginner like myself, and a visual learner, you can view everything step by step (and pause when needed) to get you through the project. This was SO helpful for me because I got stuck a few times and it was so nice to refer to an easy video!
One of my favorite finishing touches on the bathroom was the addition of this fun succulent planter! I knew I wanted some kind of hanging planter and found the perfect galvanized wall basket that matched the galvanized metal on the lights. It was super easy to install. Inside I tucked these cute little Rae Dunn mugs (set of 4 for under $30!) and planted some succulents inside (thanks for the idea, Kimberly!). I think it turned out SO cute, don’t you think?
I used another one of those awesome galvanized wall baskets and installed it right next to the sink. We used wall anchors so they’re able to hold quite a bit of weight, so they’re perfect for a small bathroom like this when you need additional storage! In ours we tucked a few hand towels, and a few bar soaps.
Instead of installing a new sink, we decided to give our current one a makeover! It was a really dark color before and I knew it would look great painted a light, dusty grey. I picked up some cute knobs, and swapped out the faucet, and it really made a huge difference, and saved us some money, too! After the paint dried, I took a sanding block and distressed it so it had an aged and vintage look, so much better, right?
We really put in a lot of hard work on this makeover, so to be able to stand back and really take everything all in is a great feeling. Being a first time home owner is intimidating because there is still so much that we don’t know how to do yet, but through everything, we’re learning so much!
And again, here’s that great “before” and “after” photo!

Oh my gosh! Get out of town – that is an AMAZING renovation! The change is unbelievable! I love the distressed vanity – so amazing! I love the colors, too! Can you come redecorate my house? Haha! 🙂
WOW! That is just beautiful! We bought a house last year and we are starting to do updates this would work well in our house.
I love the look of the bathroom. Those lights are so nice-they look really bright! I love bright bathroom lights.
I love your bathroom makeover!! The farmhouse is a beautiful style for home deecor.
It’s amazing how a simple change of light and decors can change the overall look of a bathroom. I love how it turned out.
Wow! What a transformation! Your bathroom is so nice now, with the lighting fixture and the small plants accents. I may copy your ideas and put little plants in my bathroom too. I think succulents or a terrarium would look great.
I’ve been stalking for the reveal! You guys did AMAZING Kendall! We are so right there with you moving into our first new home and we want to do all the updates ourselves, but it’s SCARY! You’ve totally inspired me! We have two full bathrooms we want to upgrade and make more our style, I’m just so indecisive right now on the style we want to go with. I love how bright your bathroom is now! In one of ours there’s no natural lighting and it needs some new lighting to change that issue! What did you do to the far wall? I love the texture!
This is so inspiring! I’m planning on making over our powder room in the next few months, and you’ve given me so many great ideas already!
I love the farmhouse look! And I am dying over those succulents in mugs, that’s such a unique idea!
I think that turned out really nice. You did a wonderful job! I think that lighting really makes a huge difference. I like that!
I love love love this! It seriously looks so good, and the light helps SO much! Bright and beautiful.
This looks fantastic. I am planning a bathroom renovation for my smaller bathroom.
I love it! We were just talking of doing planking like that on one of our bathroom walls over the garden tub.
WOW, just wow. Your bathroom looks amazing, so much character to it now than before, looks so much brighter too.
So does the rest of your house fit the industrial farmhouse feel or are you doing on room at a time?
I love your new bathroom design. I like the added storage, something that I need to do in my boys bathroom. I love the farmhouse look but it wouldn’t work in my house. It’s too modern looking.
I love the makeover! It has a real rustic look to it. I can’t wait to buy a house and remake my whole house similar to this.
I love how it turned out. Thoselug planters are so cute. I might have to borrow some of your deas. We are moving to a new house next month.
What an awesome transformation!! I love your new bathroom!!
It’s beautiful! I love it! We’re working on our laundry room right now! I can’t wait to share some pics!
Totally love the ‘after.’ That is gorgeous! I want our bathroom to have the shiplap too. I’m such a big fan of Joanna Gaines, you know. 🙂
I love the industrial farmhouse look. This is gorgeous! I never thought to mix the two but it is wonderful!
I LOVE that! It has such a cool feel. It’s almost steampunk.
This came out gorgeous. I am really liking the Industrial/Natural look. My husband and I are currently renovating our kitchen by ourselves. It is definitely a satisfying feeling. 🙂
Omg I’m just loving how your bathroom came out!!!! So stylish!!! So chic!!
Oh I LOVE that industrial lighting! So bright and trendy! It all looks so clean and nice!
Those lights are fantastic. Love the barn/farm feel and the shiplap walls. So beautiful
I’ve been looking for ideas for my bathrooms. I hate the way it looks right now – thanks for sharing some inspiration. Looks gorgeous.
It turned out beautiful! I love the way that sink looks. It’s so retro and yet modern looking.
This is so cute and different! Its a nice change from the norm!
Bathroom before was nice, but the Industrial Farmhouse look is beautiful!! The new lights make the bathroom look so bright. I love the cute mugs with the succulents!
We are currently redoing our bathroom as well. I might have to take some of your ideas here and use them!
OMG – such a simple facelift, but what a different. I gotta do this at my place!
