House Work

This week I decided to re-do our downstairs bathroom. (a work in progress the walls and cabinets need to be re-painted) its past life was as a ho-hum children's bathroom. However this is the bathroom all of our guests use & I wanted it to be more grown-up space. (no little boys allowed)

The bathroom before:

This is how the bathroom looks now:

View from the back hall: blue ombre curtains & blue birds shower curtain both by Threshold

The garbage can doesn't normally live in the middle of the bathroom I just wanted to show it off

Shelf on the door wall (the door is off center it drives me batty) I need a small basket up there I think

I painted the vanity mirror Sweet Mint by Valspar

More storage yay

Motivating art

New handles

Closet organization

We have a very weird bathroom closet because it is ALSO the back hall closet

I have all of these Birchbox boxes, & they were the perfect size to help organize my drawers

No more room for new polish

Finding a narrow basket for this space was not easy, the tea cup is the perfect place for my rings

A magnetic board for hair clips & bobby pins

Eventually the walls are going to go from bland beige to Valspar Apricot Ice, the ceiling & doors/trim will be Polar White

This is our new front porch light, I LOVE it the spiral filament Edison bulbs just look amazing

Thanks for looking, I hope you liked it!
