Sunday Favorites - $28 Bathroom Redo
Thanks to Chari @ Happy To Design for hosting this fun event. It gives us all a chance to see some of the posts we may have missed. Some of you have been blogging for a while and have wonderful posts to share again. Please go by Chari's blog to see a list of all the participants. There are some great "re-runs" that you just don't want to miss. I havn't been posting too long, but this is one I thought I would share again. This was a Met. Monday post I did in February.
Today I would like to show you my bathroom transformation and I would like to offer two apologies. First many of you have already seen this picture, and second I do not have a before picture. However since I think someone somewhere made a mold of this bathroom and gave it to every builder in the country and they just stamped them out by the hundreds or thousands, a picture probably really isn't needed. It's the standard big mirror, cultured marble counter, sink and tub surround with basic cabinetry and the cheapest faucet they could find. I have had my decorating skills challenged with having this bathroom in my last two homes.
With a new home and many projects that need to be done and the fact that my money tree is suffering from extreme drought and frost bite, I really needed to be creative. I started digging for accessories and decided a tropical theme would be in order. So armed with a plan I mixed 3 colors of leftover paint together for the walls, $18 for 3yds. of fabric for the drape, $5 for the bamboo rod, $3 for the tissue box I painted with a bamboo design, and $1 each for the soap box and mirror from the Dollar store. The clock and vase I had and the floral arrangement was made from remnants of several older ones. It may not be a remodel, but for now it will do and I really like the color and tropical feel that it has. Just another example of what we can do using what we have and using our imagination.
Thanks for stopping by, I always enjoy your visits. Hugs, Marty
