DIY Rustic Bathroom Shelves

I discovered a gold mine the other day!  As I was in the barn scooping out feed for our calves, I glanced up and noticed a few boards sticking out from the loft.  I decided to venture up to the barn loft and see what all was up there.  I'm so glad I did because I found tons of old rustic wood and boards just begging to be turned into something lovely!

It was time for me to finally hang something on our bathroom walls, so as soon as I discovered these boards I knew just what project I wanted to tackle first.

The stain I used is Early American by Miniwax, and the shelving brackets are from Lowes.

I love how the design of the brackets leaves the perfect little hook to hang a towel.

I kept the accessories simple and mostly white.  I'm drawn more and more to neutral spaces with lots of white, so this just felt right for the space.

These shelves really add a lot of character and warmth to our bright bathroom.  

I'm excited to get started on the rest of the projects I have planned for all that reclaimed wood!  It's so special to incorporate these finds into our home decor!

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!
Have a BLESSED day!

  1. Love the shelves! Also love the lights above the sink and wondered where you bought them. The counter tops are beautiful, too? May I ask where they were purchased? Thanks!

    1. Hi Annette Y,
      Thank you so much! The light fixtures and glass globes are from Lowe's. It's just a basic fixture so I'm pretty sure they always have them in stock. The counters were old laminate that I just painted for a fresh look. I followed the same steps as I did for our kitchen counters (you can find that tutorial under my Project Gallery tab) I just used different shades of paint. :)
