In our year long home makeover journey, the guest bathroom is the room we were most excited about…. because we had a theme… John Deere. You may not believe me, but it was my idea. Really so that we had a place to
store display all my hubby’s John Deere paraphernalia. I think it also helps people who come to our home get a better sense of who we are.
We debated the color for a long time, whether to do brown or go all out and do John Deere green. We finally decided to go all the way and had the store mix up the John Deere green paint formula. When we first started painting I was beginning to question our decision…
(Please ignore my painting clothes and hair….)
In the end, it turned out better than I could have imagined. We started with a plain, white bathroom:
…and turned it into a John Deere extravaganza
One of my best friends made that adorable button “M” with John Deere backing. Love it so much! I spray painted the light switch cover and the soap dispenser yellow- love the little touch that adds to the whole thing. You can’t see it very well, but that is a John Deere hand towel.
My mom made this amazing shower curtain with fabric from Hobby Lobby. Love it so much and it really helps to tie the room together.
I wanted to be sure to incorporate a personal touch, so in the shelf above the toilet (another father-in-law creation!), I displayed pictures of my husband and us with some of his tractors. The little toy tractors were on his “tractor show” groom’s cake.
We love how it all turned out and are excited to show it to our guests when they come over. Definitely a great snapshot of who we are and my husband’s hobby!
