On to the next order of business. I’m redecorating. This is not craft related, but I am quite happy to share all about it. My guest bathroom was in severe need up an update. It was plain. Plain white. and more white. After all, time is limited with a two year old. Sunday afternoon I decided to crash the bathroom with a can of paint and a few accessories.
I headed to Lowes for paint, a shelf, new door handles and a towel holder. Here’s the update. It’s not finished, but it’s getting pretty close.
I adore these new baskets from TJMaxx to hold toiletries. The top ones has rolled towels for Silas and the bottom two have lotion, soaps, baby oil, powder etc. I plan on putting two more under the sink to hold that stuff as well.
The glass shelf came from Lowes and the owl and blue candle holder from TJMaxx.
The walls are a light Gray, called Notre Dame, from Valspar at Lowes. I also used this color in our bonus room on the end accent wall.
Now here’s the sad section it still needs a new mirror, vanity light and the doors (which are currently drying) need to be affixed to the cabinets. I painted them a smoky blue color and added new Allen + Roth handles from Lowes. I grabbed the towel holder and a new fowl from TJMaxx as well. The counter is bare- excepts for the paint splatter which I have to scrub off so I will be decorating that area soon.
Here’s a list of the things I added and where they came from:
- Shower curtain Kohls $15
- Shower curtain hangers – TJMaxx $3.99
- Hand towel- TJMaxx $4
- Silver Owl Candle Holder- TJMaxx $4
- Blue mercury glass holder- TJMaxx $2
- Gray & White Chevron baskets- TJMaxx $7 each
- Glass Shelf- Lowes $35
- Paint: Notre Dame VALSPAR (satin finish) 1 gallon- Lowes (leftovers, but $35)
- Paint: Provence OLYMPIC (flat) 1 quart – Lowes $13
- Cabinet Pulls (not pictured) Allen + Roth (Model #: D2051-76.2NP) – Lowes $3.50/each
