Here is what the bathroom looked like before the redo:
Before adding the shelves, I took down the large towel rack & filled in the holes. Then I painted the walls Toasted Almond by Olympic Paints. I love how much lighter the room is now!
We also changed the handle out on the toilet with a brushed nickel one. It’s a great way to upgrade the toilet for a small amount of money! The faux boxwood is from Michael’s.
I enjoyed shopping the house & a few stores for accessories for the shelves. I bought the basket on the top shelf from Garden Ridge a couple of years ago. The gold bowl on the second shelf was from a flower arrangement my mother-in-law gave me years ago. I saved it because I loved it, but this is the first time I’ve been able to use it in my décor. The silver tray is from Dollar Tree & the succulents-I-will-never-kill were about $10 from Target! The candle holder & shell bowl on the third shelf were both from Garden Ridge. The bottom shelf holds my grandmother’s sewing basket & tiny kitten figurine. The mirror is from Marshall’s.
I’m kind of in love with this matted peacock print from Hobby Lobby. It was originally $15.99, but I got it for half off. I think it adds a little quirkiness to the room! The frame was about $12 from Wal-Mart.
The sink portion of the bathroom was a little harder to photograph. We replaced the large towel rod with a smaller towel ring & changed the toilet paper holder to match. I also added a new soap dispenser. It’s not my favorite soap dispenser ever, but I needed something that was plastic, since my five-year-old loves to play in the sink…urgh! It came from Target & the hand towel is from Marshall’s.
Here is another shot of this side of the room:
I just love looking at this room now! On Monday, I’ll show you where I hid the toilet paper, wipes, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hair accessories, eye glass cleaner, & more!
I’d love for you to follow along as we upgrade our builder-basic home! You can follow Designed to Dwell through Google Friend Connect or receive posts through e-mail. Have a great weekend!
