It’s raining, it’s pouring, this faithful farmwife is roaring! I know I know… most Manitoban’s that read this post aren’t at all happy with the weather this weekend… or this month rather… or the past 2 seasons mind you! But I’m dancing in the rain today… getting my boots all muddy… and smiling for our water well, dugouts, trees, pastures, grain land, and every living plant! And amidst the rain, I’m enjoying the cozy comforts of our little house on the prairie… including our recently flipped FARMHOUSE BATHROOM! Come take a look!

Our Farmhouse Bathroom Flip process:

  • Me convincing my Farmer hubs that our TEENCY TINY 8′ x 5′ bathroom has seen its’ day, and very much needs to be gutted and flipped!
  • Me convincing my Farmer that despite communication from a reputable renovator that bathroom renos typically start around $15k, that I swear on all my dogs’ graves I’ll keep it well under $7.5k!
  • Me knowing all too well that I’ll have to do a big chunk of the work myself to keep it well under $7.5k!
  • Obtained 2 quotes from local contractors. Decided to go with Garrett’s Contracting. Super conveniently just down the road from us!
  • Contractor: Gutted entire bathroom
  • Contractor: New floor, new drywall, new window, flooring install, wainscoting install, trim install, shower install
  • MacMillan Plumbing: Plumbing and vanity hook-up
  • Me, Myself & I: Planning, shower/hardware/flooring selection, painting, decor’ing, Farmhouse Vanity Furniture Flip
  • Me: Lived up to my promise and kept it all (labour, material and purchases) well under $7.5k!

My farmhouse bathroom dream come true! I’ve dreamed of wainscoting, antique brass hardware, coal black statements, wicker, wood, enamel, greenery, glass shower door, medallion flooring, and farmhouse whites for 23 years! Patience is a virtue folks! This dream was so worth the wait! I honestly would’ve waited another 23 years… but we don’t need to tell my Farmer hubby that! 😉
