Yes. . .we have another. . .but a more rustic. . ."bathroom". . .If you have followed The Country Farm Home for a few years, you can probably figure out from where the photos in this post came. . .Our farmstead necessary room out back. . .better known as the outhouse. . .But. . .I'm not concentrating on the outhouse itself. . .but rather providing some inspiration for rustic farmhouse baths inside your home. . .
With a huge basket, I went through Our Old Country Store and picked items I have successfully used in the farmhouse bath. . .but when in the combination of primitive walls and painted barnwood, it takes on a totally different look. . .more suitable for rustic farmhouses. . .
Old bottles and hand towels. . .
Ironstone pitchers. . .shabby step stools. . .a bird nest in the drinking ladle. . .a weathered fence. . .our garden bunny. . .and a wreath of soft blue to set off the stool. . .
Don't forget to add a farmhouse chair, too. . .a plain and simple one. . .
Here is another idea. . .I'm never happy with just one. . .I started with a mannequin wearing Grandmother's nightgown. . .added cotton stalks to a shabby ice cream bucket. . .a smaller bucket to the side. . .And notice the blue bird perched on the fence. . .It picks up the blue in the smaller bucket. . .
I think I will give you a peek of the outside, too. . .because the wooden wash tub would make a fine accent in a primitive, rustic or farmhouse setting. . .
And in the window. . .it's Old Spice and another ironstone pitcher. . .
The secret to making everything work is plenty shades of white. . .
with touches of a pastel. . .
Lots of texture. . .and bringing a little of the outside in.
Most of all, just have fun with it. . .
Make it your own. . . and throw away the rules. . .
I do. . .
