Narrow Half Bathroom Reveal {1910 Home Renovation}

Our narrow half bathroom renovation is DONE!!


And by done I mean construction is finished and it's completely functional and not that there is nothing else to be done in the room.  Eventually, we'll hang some art/decor across from the mirror and I also have plans to hang or build in shelving behind the toilet.  If you notice this tiny little bath is short on storage.

Before I share more pictures and details let me remind you how the bathroom looked when we bought the house in February.  Yikes!  Dark, dirty, and dated.   
A few weeks ago I shared my plans for the room and I'm so excited with how it turned out.  My husband, our fathers, and my brother did a fantastic job!  All I can lay claim to is the design and a DIY redo of the original bathroom mirror.

Enjoy the tour.


We picked up the matte white Hexagon and Dot tile from Home Depot.  I often see it grouted with a darker color but since I prefer grout that matches the tile we went with white grout as well.  Hopefully the addition of a grout additive will help keep it from staining.

The Harriet Console Table was purchased from Joss and Main's a Sprig of Mint sale.


We purchased our Millenium Lighting Neo-Industrial Wall Sconces off the shelf at Lowes.  While I can't find a current link to the bronze at Lowes online they do also offer the fixture in chrome.


We found the perfectly sized slimline sink at Ikea.  It is the Lillangen model (23 5/8" x 10 5/8" x 5 1/2").  It has a modern edge but it also reminds me of an apron front sink so it fits perfectly for an updated farmhouse look.


We loved the Bol Faucet by Kohler for the same reason.  Its design was inspired by an apothecary mortar and pestle.  It also has a shape reminiscent of an old hand cranked water pump.  It was a splurge but my plumber hubby has nothing but good things to say about the Kohler brand.


Another (semi) splurge was the Arcadia Subway Mosaic tile purchased from Wayfair.  At $15.00 sq ft it is by no means a super expensive tile but for a larger area it would have made the project fairly expensive. Thankfully, we were only tiling a small space and only needed to order one box of tile.




The second half bath and kitchen are up and functioning as well.  I hope to be sharing those spaces soon.

All that's left on the "before we can move in to-do list" is to put back together the full bathroom.  We're hoping it will be ready enough for us to move in by mid July!!

    1. Thank you Suzanne. It's nice to have a finished and clean feeling space since we're still in construction phase elsewhere around the house and since it started out so dark and dirty!

    1. Thanks so much Angela. I was SO happy to stumble upon a near perfectly sized table to fit in that tiny sink nook! We did have to add a bit of trim behind so the sink would fit without overhanging BUT it fits in the space and the extra trim was painted white like the walls and is not very noticeable. The tiles were an online purchase and I hoped I'd like them in person. They look grayer in the picture against the white and green than they do straight out of the box. I guess because they are a mix of tones they are a bit like a chameleon changing in the lighting and the colors surrounding them. I was thinking of using them in the kitchen too but hubby said because of the size and the paper backing they were difficult to cut and install cleanly. I guess I'm on the hunt for a larger tile or tile on mesh instead!

  7. That is one pretty little bathroom and the perfect mix of vintage and modern! The boys really did a great job, but I'm sure you were the brains of the operation!

    1. Thank you! We knew a regular vanity was not going to fit. I had planned on building something to set a sink on but when I found the console table the plans changed!

  11. Wow, what an awesome bathroom makeover. The side table and narrow sink are perfect for the small space and so unique. Had a little chuckle over the old sink. I'm in love with that faucet!

  14. I love that you chose white. I think it is always the best color if you’re planning to make a small room look bigger. I just thought the old bathroom was indeed a bit too cramped and uncomfortable. But wow! The new bathroom certainly looks a lot better. Good job! :D
