Use live-edge wood slabs for a rustic countertop, like in this intown Atlanta bathroom designed by Karen Hott Interiors. You can find live-edge countertops for bathroom vanities for $200-$300 via online artisan marketplaces. You also can salvage wood from fallen trees and work with a craftsman to get the finish you want, depending on your budget.
This bathroom puts a rustic twist on spa style with wood-paneled walls, rough-hewn wood beams and a soaking tub with dramatic views. The custom cabinets were made from antique barn boards, and the sinks are antique terra-cotta planters.
Iron piping acts as a decorative accent in this simple and beautiful rustic bathroom. A wood countertop features an imperfection in the wood for a great, natural look. The unique shape of the sink opening flows well with the wavy edge of the countertop.
To add open storage above the resurfaced bathtub, a shelf was made from a plank of pine, cut to size and finished with ebony stain. The shelf holds shampoo and beauty products, while an integrated black steel pipe keeps towels hung neatly below.
This generously sized bathroom in the HGTV Dream Home 2006 is lined with a peg rail, with pegs made from branches of mountain laurel. The wood theme plays out again in the rough-wood framed mirror over the deep double sink. The sink, reminiscent of an old-fashioned laundry sink, offers plenty of room for multiple people to wash up at once.
The last step in crafting this bath caddy is to hang the finished piece in your bathroom or guest bathroom. Be sure to fill it with a variety of bath and body lotions, now only at an arm's length away from the tub or shower.
