I decided to tackle our Master Bathroom last night and in about 30 minutes I went from chaos to calm. Since I was already in the "mood" to decorate I took it a step further and cleaned the sinks, toilet, and swept the floor.
Let me just warn you that the before pictures are, um, not so appealing, in fact they are down right terrible. I should be ashamed of myself for letting my counters get so cluttered and please look past the pile of dirty towels on the floor. My mom would be so ashamed, but I think that I redeemed myself in the after. Even though the bathroom is far from where I want it to be, it is soooo much better than the before.
Here take a look.
Lets see if I followed Nester's advice:
2. Fabric. Bring fabric in with a no sew shower curtain that you hang high. Include a rug to keep toes warm on cold winter mornings.
I am on the lookout for some faboulous fabric that I will add to the bottom of my existing shower curtain to make it higher. I did bring in the little seating area (Yardsale $2) that adds some texture and its the perfect spot to sit and lather on some smell goods.
3. Something pretty.
I don't have enough counter space to put something prettyfied, but I do plan on adding some pretty art to the walls after I paint.
I have some pretty packaged lotions and soaps, but I need to find a tiered stand to put them on.
I really tried to put a small lamp in here, but the cord looked awful and it was in to tight of a space.
Overall, I think that I did a pretty good job considering that I didn't spend any money, I just used what I had on hand. I really want the bathroom to be relaxing and inviting especially I often use it as an escape. Now that I have cleared off the counters and put all of the personal products away in the cabinets, I need to take the time to organize them so I won't allow myself to get back to the before.
Here are the things I want to do in here:
- Paint the cabinet black or expresso and add hardware.
- Add fabric to the shower curtain and hang it high.
- Find a soft, fluffy rug.
- Organize the clutter in the cabinets.
- Paint the walls a bluish green color. (London Smoke or Eiffel Tower by Valspar)
