Wall Mount Farmhouse Sink Bathroom Renovation
I am SO excited to be writing this article! The wall mount farmhouse sink bathroom renovation which was supposed to be just a bathroom refresh and ended up being a 6 week ordeal is finally done! It was a project that I hadn’t planned but then in my search for a kitchen sink back in the spring I came across this old wall mount sink and knew it would be awesome in our space.
Some pieces speak to you and some scream. The sink was the latter and I didn’t hesitate to go scoop it up despite the fact that we were about 752 projects to finish before getting to it lol! I put it in the office and walked by it for months dreaming up a new bathroom design around it.
Creating a Space that Feels Like Home
Looking at the picture below I realize there was nothing wrong with our bathroom. We did a full renovation of it about 3 years ago. I liked it, but I never really loved it. It didn’t have the same feel I’ve been creating throughout the rest of our home. I wanted more of a collected over time, authentic look to the space. And after I stumbled upon the sink the rest of it fell into place….well kind of. I don’t think any diy home reno “falls into place” but we got it done and I’m obsessed so there’s that! Lol! I hope you love it as much as we do!
Sorry for the grainy cell phone pics but here’s wall mount farmhouse sink in all her original glory!
Old Sink Probs
Again, this was one of those projects where I have to give Ed all the credit. I found the pieces and had this idea in my head, but he’s the one to bring it to life. Luckily he’s a patient problem solver because this sink gave him a run for his money. He compared it to working on an old car. I wanted the plumbing to look a specific way and new plumbing with an old sink was a bit tricky.
How We Mounted the Sink
Above is a picture of the wall brace that Ed built for the sink to attach to. He also ran some of the plumbing in the wall so that you wouldn’t see the water lines below it.
If you have any specific questions about the plumbing process I’d be happy to ask him and let you know, but to be honest I still know nothing about it. Aside from the idea my role was painting everything when it was done. Oh and grouting the tile that had to be replaced.
A Few More Things to Do
Ed moved the plumbing so it was centered under the sink. Then we replaced and grouted the tile. Recut the baseboard and beadboard trim. Put all the vintage finds in place. And then finally gave everything a fresh coat, or 3, of paint the end results are below! Eeek!
An Antique Medicine Cabinet
I found this amazing old medicine cabinet at an antique store in MO and fell in love with all it’s perfect chippyness! It was the perfect solution to the storage we would be losing from the removal of the vanity. I had originally planned on putting it above the sink but it didn’t work out because I’m a shorty and couldn’t see myself in it’s mirror lol! However, I think this looks better anyway! 😉
The Antique Mirror
Because when I spotted this mirror at a local vintage shop it stopped me in my tracks. It’s an old dresser mirror and I love the warmth the oak adds to the space. I also love the scale of it in here. It makes this small bath feel much bigger than it did before. I also attribute that to the sink and all the visual clearance underneath it.
The Wall Mount Farmhouse Sink
The sink. Let’s talk about this beauty that started it all. It was in excellent shape structurally and I happen to love the chippy paint and wear and tear of it. I simply gave the inside of it a good cleaning. Then sanded any loose paint from the base.
After that I painted it with the best paint EVER Fusion Mineral Paint! I’ve shared this paint with y’all before HERE when I used it to paint our front door. It’s seriously my favorite paint! The coverage is amazing, it’s fast drying and doesn’t leave brush strokes, and it’s just all around easy to apply.
For the sink I used their color Champlain and I’m absolutely in love with the color and how it turned out! I gave it 2 coats for good measure but one would have been enough! If you’re looking to paint ANYTHING I highly recommend checking out Fusion Mineral Paint.
Wall Mount Farmhouse Sink Bathroom Renovation
I’m still looking for a couple small details to complete the space aka a rug and a small basket to sit on the back of the toilet to hold some tp, but otherwise I’m completely smitten with how this space turned out. It finally feels like the rest of our home and every time I walk past it I smile. I feel blessed to have this creative outlet and even more so to have a guy who enjoys helping me make ideas a reality.
Thank you so much for following along with us!
