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.
In just about five minutes or less, you can DIY this great rustic toothbrush holder from an old mason jar. You could do this with a plain jar or paint it white and distress it a bit for a really nice farmhouse look. Just a small piece of wired chicken net keeps your toothbrushes perfectly organized and separated. This one really is quick and easy to make.

You need magazines in the bathroom, right? Why not store them in this lovely DIY rustic looking magazine rack. You build this right onto the wall so you don’t need any additional space for it and it holds so many magazines and books! This is such a simple build and you can make it from wood that you have left over from other projects if you happen to have any on hand.


My grandparents had these great braided rugs in their old farmhouse – in the kitchen and in the bathroom. If you love the look of vintage braided rugs, you can make your own by repurposing a few old t-shirts. Who knew that there were so many wonderful upcycling projects for old t-shirts? This one is super easy and if you don’t happen to have a few t-shirts that you can use, you can find them at any thrift store for under a dollar each.

Bathrooms can pose a challenge to a lover of home design – to most of us on a budget, they’re an expensive proposition to overhaul, and it can be difficult to justify a remodel if everything’s functioning. But how to decorate the room? Choosing the right bathroom color scheme can make all the difference in how much you love your bathroom…and the good news is, you CAN learn to love your bathroom again (or for the first time?).

You can add white color and light to existing bathroom decor with white accessories, ceramic tiles, curtains, glass and stainless steel shelves, a towel heater and shiny fixtures.

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.
This DIY mason jar storage system is all you need to keep your bathroom organized, and it is perfect for adding a little farmhouse style, too. You make lids for your mason jars, complete with knobs so that you can easily lift the lids to get to the contents. The entire thing is nestled in a rustic looking wooden box that you can keep on a shelf or right there on the back of the toilet. I really love rustic mason jar decorating projects!
Adding color to a bathroom doesn’t need to be bright or showy. Choose a light mint color for a lush backdrop. If you pair this with white countertop and cabinets, you’ll have a clean look that lets you play with the floor design. Simple colors also give you the flexibility to accessorize with other pops of color in the guest baskets, towels and decor.
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.
Over the past four years we have gotten to know the owners and employees at Ace as they helped us through having water in the basement and so many other issues.  Each time we come in, they spoil the girls! We spend a lot of time buzzing around there getting supplies for our latest project or quick fix. They offer everything we need and more importantly, are so helpful when I wander in alone and have no idea what I need.

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.
