Farmhouse Bathroom Decorating Ideas

I forgot to tell you…..t’s beauty tip day on the blog.

Seriously.

Now….I do have to preface the whole beauty tip day with the disclaimer that…..red lipstick aside….I’m not really your beauty tip girl.

I’m your paint color girl.

Or your paint stick table top girl.

Or your bathroom decorating ideas girl.

Yep.

This whole beauty tip thing is a first.

I’m actually a little nervous.

I’m not sure why.

Maybe it’s because the last beauty tip I gave involved Aqua Net and Lee Press-On Nails.

But then I thought….I could tell you my tips and maybe you would tell me your tips and we could start  a whole beauty-tip-a-palooza.

So here goes.

Beauty tips…..free of charge. :)

drumroll….please…..

Beauty tip #1:  How to get your hair super shiny

Have you ever noticed that when your hair has been processed and highlighted and then you try to deep condition it to make all those little stray hairs go away and then you get this film all over your hair and it looks dull and not shiny so you apply extra hairspray to try to make it look better…..that it ends up looking totally not healthy?

Am I the only one?

Next time….try this homemade apple rinse.

It’s made up of tiny little bits of apples and apple cider vinegar and water that combine to take all the hairspray and conditioner and gels right off your hair.

Your hair feels light and airy and bouncy and fresh and clean.

Apples.

Who knew?

Beauty tip #2:  The best foundation

I’m not a big foundation wearer.

Most of the time I put on red lipstck…a little mascara…big earrings and sunglasses and call it a day.

Until I found Rimmel Match Perfection.

I don’t know the people at Rimmel.

But if I did….I would bake them cookies and write them a song and have another child just so I could name it Rimmel.

It is like joy in a bottle.

It’s smooth and not too creamy and your skin looks like it just had a vacation in the Caribbean.

And it’s only $4.97.

You’re welcome.

Beauty tip #3:  Curl your hair with a flat-iron

Am I the last person to figure this out?

All that time I spent flat ironing the hair and then trying to curl it with a curling iron.

Why?

Just twist your new apple washed hair around the flat-iron and pull straight down.

It makes your hair look so 2013.

And when I squinted my hair almost looked like someone from a really good country video.

Amazing.

This weekend in between all those beauty treatments I managed to add a little yellow to the bathroom.

And make some yellow wreaths and paint a stool and make a pillow.

And paint these numbered tin vases.

My bathroom and I have never looked so good. :)

PS  Don’t even get me started on the sugar scrub for your hands from Williams Sonoma. :)

  1. How is it that I am always…not once and awhile…ALWAYS in awe of your creative ways! This bathroom just sings with perfection…an orchestra of happiness. By the way…my heart is a flutter with the amazing wall art…I am in love with them…there is a reason why everyone flocks to Thistlewood Farms my friend and you are that reason!!! Hugs and wishing you a picture perfect day!

  2. I love your bathroom. The little pops of yellow are perfection. You never cease to amaze me. Thank you for sharing as always. ~Tammy

  3. Great job, KariAnne. Yellow makes me happy. I got a glimpse of the fabric in the basket, too.

    Never heard of Rimmel. Where did you find it?

  4. Your ears should have been burning last night – you totally were the topic of conversation at the Babe’s birthday party – missing you. Hope a little sunshine comes your way today.

  5. What a fun, easy and happy update to your bathroom. I love your style and am giving you a little shout out on my blog today.
    p.s. I just got a recap of the Haven conference from my friend Brandi of Do Not Disturb This Groove and she told me how sweet and friendly you were to everyone. I am looking forward to meeting you at The Chapel Market in Oct.

  6. Girl! Keep the ideas coming! We are just barely finishing up the kitchen, laundry room and pantry re-do and I cringe everytime I go into the bathroom. UGH! I love your signs and might have to copycat. Pretty sure we’ll be wainscotting too. Have an awesome day KariAnne!

  7. As always my dear you have left us all in total amazement at your talent and many ideas !! I just wish I could figure out where you find the time for all you do. I wish you lived next door to me so that I could hopefully learn more from you. I know that your family must be so proud of you and all you do. You have some wonderful gifts and it’s such a blessing that you’re sharing them with us all.

    Blessings to you,
    Betsy

  8. Okay, Miz karianne….it’s official. I really must find a way to move to your part of the country. Down the road from you, perhaps. Close enough to be good neighbors, but not so close that you’d think I was stalking you. My house would be so much more fun and tasteful if you lived nearby, and we were friends, and you let me cook for you….and bake for you….and heck! I’d even clean your house once in a while….sigh, you don’t have to worry though. I’m stuck right here. Forever. aaahhhh, a reeeeely heavy sigh…..

  9. Such a cute post! and thanks so much for the tips…I thought (after many weird looks at PB yesterday) that I must be the last woman ever to leave the house with mascara and lipstick….LOL. So happy there are other “take me as I am” woman out there who let natural beauty shine thru!

  10. Oh how I wish I could tap into your creativity (both decorating and writing)! A lovely read for my Monday morning! Thanks for the tips and have a beautiful week!~~Angela

  11. Great tips and beautiful update! I love starting the week off over here…
    -Shelley

  12. Good morning, KariAnne! I love your bathroom color! It inspired me to use this same color in my kitchen and it looks awesome! I posted about the breakfast area last week and mentioned your beautiful bathroom! Thanks for the beauty tips!

  13. Ok, my beauty tip: take Oil of Olay sensitive skin moisturizer (with sunscreen of course), and put a small amount in your palm. Squeeze in a dollop of Dr. Hauschka Toned Day Cream. Mix. Apply. It gives your face a dewy glow all day. Not bad on this 47 year old freckle face.

    Love the yellow, the memories of press on nails, and your ever present humor :)

  14. You manage to take the most simple of things, and elevate them to wonderful! ;)

  15. I’d kill for a bathroom big enough to decorate…especially with an added chair, but have another baby….no way!

  16. I love reading your narratives, but surely you are going to tell us how you made the cute wreath plague things on the wall!

  17. Goodness knows I need all the tips I can find. Thanks for all of these! Your bathroom is beautiful and I already know that you are!

  18. Too cute..love the signs..Aqua net !!! My husband used to use that…I don’t use anything most of the time..A little shadow. liner..no lipstick..Too lazy

  19. Awesome tips, and as always in such a fun way.

    Funny you mention flat=iron curling. I had my hair styled in a salon a few days ago and she did just that. I had never had that done before and thought it was the weirdest thing…….my concerns were flat irons get SO much hotter, so there was that worry…..and I don’t think my CURL stayed nearly as long as a curling wand.

    But it sure looked great for the weekend.

    Love your yellow touches with the grey – perfect complements to one another.

    Have a WONDERFUL week.

    Hugs.

  20. Linda Andersen :

    oh dear KariAnne, you never cease to amaze me. I am reasonably sure you made the yellow wreath type wall art thingy…will you tell us how?? love it. you better stop being so darned amazing, you are going to have a flock of new best friends camping on your lawn soon…..:)
    Linda
    p.s. hmmm, I never got my reservation confirmation for the gatehouse, must have gotten lost in the mail!!!!

  21. I laughed about if you squint you might even look like a good country video. Thanks for the beauty tips and…can you do a video of curling your hair with a flat iron?

  22. Karianne! Now that applie rinse is a beauty trick that I must try! Love what you did in your bathroom! Sure wish my bathroom was as huge as yours. Your clawfoot tub is absolutely gorgeous! You’ve been mighty busy this weekend. Keep throwing all those beauty tips in with the home projects.

  23. Now there you have it! ANOTHER fun post that brightened my morning before I start a day of rather mundane tasks. You know that kind of day. A little yellow and apples mixed with apple vinegar can do that for a gal!

  24. Lovely bathroom update. And thanks for the beauty tips, girlfriend! (I’m liking the sound of that apple hair rinse.)

  25. Your bathroom is really beautiful, I adore the claw foot tub and the grey walls with white and yellow accessories is just fabulous looking. I love it all!!

  26. I have always loved this bathroom- especially with the new pops of yellow!

    Did you just stencil and spray paint the tin vases??

  27. Hi there,
    Love your bathroom! I know the color is SW Gris, but please verify if is a shade of blue or is it grey?
    Thank You and Have a Blessed Day.

  28. OK, I now have LOTS of things to try! And I love the gray and yellow in the bathroom. SO clean and fresh-looking! Happy sunshiny Monday! :)

  29. I love your bathroom and the great tips!
    Can you tell me where you got that beautiful sink? I love the look, especially the rounded bar just underneath the basin part.

  30. I love your gorgeous bathroom! Thanks for all the tips on getting gorgeous too! Dang, the older I get the more time I need. I haven’t tried their foundation- sounds great and you can’t beat the price!

  31. I looked up the Rimmel and found that they had 5 of 6 different types of foundation. Which one did you try?
    Love the plaque in the bathroom. Hope you put a tutorial on how you made it soon. Your house is absolutely beautiful.

  32. Thanks for sharing your bathroom decorating ideas, beauty tips and your wonderful, witty writing! Made me smile!

  33. WHEN do you have time to do all this stuff???? You are truly amazing. So stinkin creative it blows my mind. I use Rimmel eye liner so now want to try their foundation, thaks beauty tip queen:):)

  34. Karianne,
    I love the photos and beauty tips. How soon before we see the new rooms changes? C’mon gurl, timez a wastin!

  35. Apples, huh? Really now I must try this. I have long curly hair that sometimes I use entirely too much of that conditioner stuff to try and cut down on frizz & add a little shine. It usually ends up looking pretty dull and the build up is awful! So thank you for that tip :) Oh and that bathroom is amazing looking. I added yellow here & there this year..I am loving it! Hugs!!

  36. Oh such a fun post today! It brought back memories with the Aqua Net, etc. Thanks for the beauty tips, especially about the Rimmel.
    Love the color of the walls in your bath and all the other cute touches. I am curious like others and would love to see your turtorial for the wall art with the wreath. It is just so clever.

  37. Super cute and creative as always Karianne! Love the brush/floss sign and that sink is killer!

  38. Love the tip about the apple rinse-I will try it for sure! Your bathroom is absolutely gorgeous-I LOVE it!!!! AND-that is exactly how I do my hair with my flat iron. Who knew I was so “with it”…lol xo Diana

  39. Love all the tin vases in a row. Do you know I have that same yellow wreath hidden in my SPRING box?? I’m really out of touch. Minds never graced wood and fancy plaster of (resin?) Paris which really glams it up…I read this going over The Grapevine where no grapes grow but it gets us yo my doctor and you’re talking about avocado scrub and I’m drooling for I always get this little egg, spinach and avocado mini panini after the dreaded monthly appointment when you start talking makeup. Gasp! I hadn’t put any on! I felt good about being ready to go before 6:30. So out I pull my favorite makeup trick: Covergirl lipstick that stays on and you just put clear gloss over it (it even comes with its own white tube) and I promise my almost red ( all lipstick turns red on me) lasts ALL day!! And not one smudge on someone’s tea cup. Nor the WHITE microphone at church which I got blamed for because after all, MY lips were red….I tried to explain this great makeup trick but they were all men and did not speak that language…so that’s my story and my compliment and my makeup tip of the day. Unfortunately, The Grapevine also kept your photos as little blue boxes until I got back home and could lie down and reread your post and see your beautiful toilet free bathroom :-)

  40. Ok. Now I know why I left this blog post to read until tonight. Just got off the phone from cheering my Sister up. She had a rough day… and I plopped down and pulled up your post! Laughing so hard!!! Thanks ! Ok , so I have the flat hair thing.. as in no shine… I needed your tip. Now that my hair has grown back in ( lost a LOT of it when I had my treatments in the fall), curly (OMG.. not a clue how to style this thing) now you tell me about the flatiron trick!!!
    Oh… tears running down my cheeks here.
    Hugs, Gee

  41. I have to say, you are always so creative with your writing :) And I love the sunny yellow spots in your beautiful bathroom!
    But: my anti virus program warned me about the good housekeeping link that you have in the text (apple rinse)…so I quickly closed it. Did you notice anything with your computer when you visited the site?

  42. Vicki A. Darnell :

    My Favorite breakfast drink has to be blueberry iced tea sipped slowly while reading the morning news online on the back porch of our 100-year-old Georgian Revival in the bluegrass region of KY.

  43. I love your bathroom, Karianne, and the yellow touches make it even cuter!
    I think a beauty-tip-a-palooza sounds like lots of fun!

    hugs,
    Tammy

  44. Yes! Have another child and name it Rimmel! I love that name ;) You are so freakin funny Karianne! I could read your posts all day long ;)
    Hugs,
    Jamie @ somuchbetterwithage.com

  45. Love the yellow accents in the bathroom..Rimmel Wood…a great name!!! :)

  46. It’s an amazing piece of writing for all the web viewers; theey willl obtain advantage from it
    I am sure.
