Modern Boho Bathroom Refresh
Modern Boho Bathroom Refresh -fresh white paint, a DIY tub tray, beads, candles, and lots and lots of plants turned this bathroom from boring to boho in just a few days.
I’m so excited to share my Modern Boho Bathroom Refresh. As spring approaches, it seemed time for a spring clean and a bit of a refresh. Inspired by one of my favourite instagramers, Dee Campling’s bathroom, I wanted to add in lots of plants and a few boho touches like the antique mirror, belly basket, hanging pots, and new rug.
It was a pretty quick refresh. I shopped a little ahead of time for some of the new plants and pots. The rest came together over the long weekend. You might have seen my progress over on Instagram Stories, and if you’re interested you can check them out in highlights. 😉
Here are a few before pics. A typical boring beige bathroom, full of kids toys, and bath products and tired decor.
It’s a room rarely seen my anyone and largely ignored. But as house plants become more and more popular these days, I knew it was the perfect spot to try my hand at becoming a plant lady. The windows make it a bright, sunny spot. We have a forest behind us, so no neighbours to worry about out these windows, and no need for curtains. The area around the soaker tub is the perfect spot for plants.
Our house is about 12 years old, and the house has settled. So before I painted I needed to patch the cracks in the wall and paint the room. We used my very favourite JoJo Whitewash by Para Paints. I love how fresh and clean it turned out.
It took me two days to paint the room, Friday and Saturday. Saturday night I picked up the materials for my DIY Tub Tray, such an easy and inexpensive project. I’ll be sharing a tutorial for it soon.
Sunday was Easter so no work on the room, but my mom who really and truly is a plant lady, visited and brought me some plants.
Easter Monday I worked on the finishing details, and repotted the plants into some beautiful pots.
I also did a couple of hanging pots.
And I was able to put together my tub tray.
Also, I gave the room a proper spring clean too. So it really was a pretty quick refresh.
I love the room now, and I’m reminded again what a difference a fresh coat of paint and some new styling can make.
When we first moved in I just loved the big soaker tub, and the amazing windows in this room, but their charm had worn off, and the bath had been mostly filled with toys and used by kids for years.
The refresh has made me fall in love with this room again. And I count myself lucky -especially from a spot in a hot bath with the candles lit. 😉
I hope you’re reminded, like this refresh did for me, that with a little attention, a few days, and small budget you really can fall in love with your home again. As I begin the bigger makeover of my master bedroom that this bathroom is attached to for the One Room Challenge -see my room plans here, I’m feeling encouraged and energized about loving that room again too.
With a newly refreshed Modern Boho Bathroom for spring, life really is a party!
I have the exact tub layout!! I too have been collecting plants and filling in the awkward space around the tub, I like how you used unique planters. And I have an empty belly basket as well! Thanks for showing a space doesn’t have to be gutted and renovated to be beautiful!
Barbara, Great minds think alike. 😉
I love the update! It looks refreshing and lovely 🙂
Thanks for sharing!
Jessica, thank so much. I can’t believe what a difference some paint and new decor can make.
