DECORATING THE BATH WITH JUNK FINDS!

You know how you can go out and buy ONE SMALL THING and it catapults you into this creative design frenzy??? You don't really know when it's gonna hit but when it does....LOOK OUT!!! I love it when that happens. Well this past Friday night I was walking through the garage and I spotted the fantastic shutter that Janna gave me for Valentines Day....instantly I thought bathroom.....behind the sink!!! Oh does it look gooooooooood....then I decided to hang the most wonderful old , chippy white, doesn't work any more..needs re-wired, chandelier over the bathtub! This was the "one small thing" that started this whole makeover....got it for 20.00 bucks!! Good Lord I was on a roll now!! Went and grabbed some votive candles and set them where the lightbulbs should go and it was a perfect fit!! Okay now....see the chippy garden / plant stand???? Well all my toiletries have always been setting on that and I hated the "organized mess" sooooooooooooooo I remembered these FAB painted white wire locker baskets in my shed and brought out a few to organize all that stuff up! It all took less than an hour and made a world of difference! The big mirror with the chippy frame I have had up there and is originally from a phone company and the enamelware pitcher came from an auction for 15.00! The mannequin head works great to hold my earrings and other jewerly. I have since added a few straight pins too keep it all in place! So there ya go ...a few junk pieces is all it takes to create a restful bath with a great look! If you'd like to see more of my junk finds...hop on over to Olde Tyme Marketplace!

I love it, I love it, I love it....I have the best bathroom, or at least everyone tells me that...I can't wait to show it off. On one shelf, I purchased what I call, Grandma's Medicine cabinet...old containers of medicine...I also have cute pictures and nic naks in my bathroom. I love your pictures and I believe, just because it's a bathroom, why not make it cool......
Happy Easter
