First off... Don't forget, the VIP party is going on until Sunday night!
Wow what a journey this bathroom has been! I'm so happy it's finished but in the same breath it was a totally fun project with lots of new things learned. And aside from sand on the floors and the fact that it's a bathroom I love it so much I could live in there!
Here is a reminder of what I had to work with originally...
Yep, old ugly wall paper border, plain old walls, builders mirror... Pretty much a blank boring slate.
And here it is three weeks and a broken toe later!
These little birds my 6 yr old daughter found for me at the dollar store. Does she know my taste or what?
I love this shoe form and had it on the books until the birds gave it the boot. Quite literally.
I already had these hurricane glasses. Once I started getting the feel for this room and where it was going I pondered over and over on how to fill these. This is where good friends come in handy! My bff suggested the shells and we found the blue glass pieces at the same time.
I actually wasn't sure I liked this tiled ledge behind the sink and toilet when I moved in but now that the mirror is framed and I can see all my decor staring back at itself, it's way awesome!
Here is another little birdie I put in a cloche. Aww he's so cute there.
Another great garage sale find was the cloche pedestal and this cute vintage soap sign. I love how the rusted edges play off the blue wall. Have I mention I'm totally stoked that it's garage sale season again?!!
These frames have had many homes around this place but nothing felt quite right until now. Perfect fit!
I had other plan for some cute antique bathroom prints for this wall until I found this to replace my towell bar! How cool is it? I also plan to put a cute window covering on that window and toss the icky aluminum blinds.
Here is a close up of my handy work =) I put in all the panelling which I might add is a huge pain in the butt to work with. It will be a while before I attempt it again . Mr Garden helped me level my trim for the top and I did all the painting and cuts for all the pieces.
What have I learned from this project?
Do not work in the garage with flip flops or you may break a toe.
Always put the guard on your miter saw or you may bleed.
