So much dingy brown! First step was the flooring. Michael added that before we got the girls to the rig and it made a huge difference!
The next step was the vanity. We pried that ugly top off and replaced it with wood, which I coated with a thick coat of Polyurethane. I painted the vanity base using my favorite paint for cabinets: Heirloom Traditions Paint in London (Blue/green/grey).
We hunted around for a while on the sink. I wanted a white chunky vestal sink, but we could not find one that didn’t add a ton of weight to the rig. I opted for this gorgeous hammered matte black drop in, and it was literally the best choice ever. We love it! Of course, the faucet had to go, too. This simple black one was the perfect addition and fit the counter exactly.
Now that mirror. That one was tricky. Every time we would find something we liked, we would look at the weight and it would be about a ton. I’m not even kidding. Everything was coming to like 20+ lbs which is a lot of weight to lose to a mirror. Not to mention needing to be able to mount it on the thin RV walls.
Finally, we were able to find this one. It has that sleek look I was wanting, but it is light as a feather! I absolutely recommend! We hung it with an anchored screw, but I also added some Command strips for extra stability.
I love the look of walls of subway tile! I think they just make a space look so fresh. Obviously, real tile was not an option (weight and time), so I started researching the peel-and-stick variety. I honestly was hesitant, because I didn’t want something that looked fake and cheap.
After much searching and tons of review reading, we landed on this one from Amazon. It goes on so easily and cuts like butter. BUT when you’re looking at it, you honestly cannot tell that it isn’t real tile! I am super happy with it and will be using the same product in our kitchen renovation.
Before we even bought our RV, I fell in love with this shower curtain from Hearth & Hand by Magnolia and knew it had to be in our space! The shower has glass doors for practicality, but I don’t love the look. We wanted to soften it up, but also add a little privacy for when you are in the shower. We only have one toilet and two little girls who very likely will have to potty while you are in, so this was a must!
I am not afraid to drill into the RV walls, at all. But I didn’t want to mount a toilet paper holder with all of the wear and tear those get and have it pull out of the wall. Plus there is the bulk aspect to consider.
I stumbled upon this gorgeous macrame toilet paper holder on Amazon and knew we had to have it! It is absolutely perfect for our “boho farmhouse” vibe, lightweight and low profile! I opted for a command hook to hang it for extra stability, but it is the perfect RV bathroom TP holder!
That cute little sign is another Hearth & Hand special! So perfect for our space, and a great reminder for little girls who struggle in this area.
With 4 towels in the bathroom, I knew bulky hooks were not my favorite look. We decided to try out this accordion style coat rack and it has been perfect! It can hold our towels, hand towels and the occasional laundry! I’m super happy with the buy.
Speaking of towels….When we were trying to decide what items to put into storage vs what to bring in the rig, our fluffy bath towels were a big decision. They are so cozy, but obviously take up tons of space. They are heavy when wet and would be more difficult to wash in our small RV washer/dryer as well. A few full-time RV friends recommended these Turkish towels and we hesitantly decided to give them a try. I’ll be honest, I was a skeptic.
Let me tell you, this was the best decision ever! They do actually get you very dry very quickly! They are dry and ready to use again in about an hour if you hang them up. They roll tightly for space purposes and weigh next to nothing. I actually think I like them better than our old towels. I’m not sure I will switch back when we go back to a house someday. You can grab the exact ones we have HERE (they are not all created equal!)
Now. If you have never RV’d, you probably don’t know this. I’ll be honest, I did not before we bought an RV myself. But, you are not supposed to flush your toilet paper. It’s super bad for your holding tanks. The thought grossed me out a little at first, but we have honestly adapted. My solution was to find a can that has a lid to keep things contained and keep dogs out.
I am not to keen on the metal flip top style, so I found this gorgeous woven can at Target and it fits the space so well! (I’ll address it, ignore the dog hair. I literally vacuum this place every day and it still accumulates so fast! I didn’t notice until after I did pics. Sorry, not sorry! Keepin’ it real for you over here).
The “closet” cabinet was also done with the same Heirloom Traditions Paint. Isn’t that color just dreamy?!
You can see the full walkthrough on the Reel video below! We are so happy with how this turned out. Our tiny house is truly starting to feel like a home.
If you’ve been wanting to transform your RV bathroom, I say go for it! This project was done in a weekend and made a huge impact! Don’t be scared to start pulling things out or painting. You will be so glad you did!
