If you’ve got yourself a house with a circa 1950 bathroom, you might be quite familiar with the rose pink tile conundrum. The good news? You don’t have to rip it all out to have a chic, contemporary bathroom. Simplify your storage and wall art and update your porcelain fixtures, and maybe you’ll learn to love the blush hue like your grandmother did.

This DIY bathroom valance is made from repurposed barnwood and it is simply gorgeous. You could do this over a traditional bathtub as well as a clawfoot tub and it’s a pretty easy valance to make. Once you have the valance complete, add some lace curtains to really get a farmhouse look. You can even use reclaimed wood for this one so it won’t cost you anything.

Start and end your days in royal fashion with an eggplant-colored backdrop and faded lighting. Split the wall color with a lighter wainscotting, like this ash grey, to keep the room from feeling too dark. A white bathtub, sink and toilet give the room fresh elegance without disturbing the overall aura. To tie it all together, incorporate silver accents, such as this mirror and chandelier.
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.

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.
