How adorable is this rustic toilet paper holder? You make this with some old metal pipe and it only takes a few minutes to have it finished. The entire project will cost you less than $10 and that’s if you have to purchase all of the materials. If you happen to have some old metal pipe on hand, you won’t spend that much on it and you can have it done completely in about five minutes or so.

You can never have too many shelves in the bathroom, right? These DIY faux floating shelves have a wonderfully rustic quality thanks to the wood that is used. You can do these with reclaimed wood, barnwood or even distressed wood to give them a great farmhouse look and they are super easy to make and to hang on the walls. Then, use them to display your farmhouse décor or any number of bathroom essentials.

These little wooden signs are really cute and they will certainly help you to achieve that rustic farmhouse look. You could even distress these just a bit to make them look even more rustic. You can use whatever wording you want with these, but I love the chosen, “Wash, Flush, Floss and Brush” of these. They’re super quick and easy to make and work really well even in smaller bathrooms. DIY wood signs will definitely add that rustic farmhouse touch.


This towel rack that you make from repurposed pipes has such a wonderfully rustic look. This is a pretty simple DIY towel rack to build and you just don’t get more rustic than some old pipes. This is a great project to try if you have some old metal pipes laying around or if you are planning on a replumbing job. Or, check with local contractors who may have some old pipes from houses that they are remodeling.
Basket style window boxes are perfect for adding some extra storage in the bathroom and they have such a nice farmhouse appeal. They’re also super easy to hang on the walls in your bathroom and they give you additional storage without taking up too much space so they are perfect for smaller bathrooms. You can find these baskets at most department stores or repurpose a few outdoor planting baskets. Or you can use DIY window box planters for this one, too.
Add a gorgeous farmhouse inspired DIY mason jar sconce to the bathroom – or add two if you have the space. These are so easy to make and you can DIY them completely from repurposed materials so they won’t cost you anything as long as you have a plank of wood and an old jar. You can use metal clamps to hold the jars or think outside the box and use leather strips or even heavy twine to keep your sconces in place.
You can begin your day in a serene bathroom by choosing a soft sky blue color for your walls and backsplash tile.
