Hopefully, you’ll recall my recent post regarding my love/hate relationship with the color red. Well, I’ve since finished the five coats of Glidden’s Red Delicious paint that was required to fully cover the tiny half bath on our first floor.
I’ve also completed the molding around the mirror, added some artwork and, voila, completed this space. It only took three months! Aren’t you proud? Shhhh. I can hear you snickering.
So, you remember the before …
We replaced the “contractor’s special” sink with a solid surface version and added an oil-rubbed bronze faucet and cabinet hardware. I say “we” because the sink project required a lot of help from the hubs and my dad. Thanks guys! You are forever rescuing my DIY tail.
Check out that adorable soap dish and bar soap. That was an awesome score at an estate auction where I bought nearly a truckload of vintage (and newer) Avon products all for $1. No, that is not a typo. I’m telling you ONE DOLLAR, people. This “Barkley Collection” (that’s my name for all the finds I stole at this particular estate auction — the owner was named Martha Barkley) includes some caauuutte perfume and soap decanters as well as bath-oil filled honey jars, salt and pepper shakers, etc.
I created this collage from stuff I had lying around the house. I wanted this room to have a nautical feel (remember, we live next to a lake) but without the predictable blues.The “Ten Commandments for Marriage” framed poster helps me focus on what I can do to honor my marriage and have a happy, healthy relationship.
I always love decorating with pieces given to me by loved ones. Every time I look at these objects, they remind me of the people who are so special to me. This Longaberger basket was a gift from the hubs’ grandmother. Luuurrrvve.
Well, that’s a wrap on this “not-so-tiny” project. Stay tuned for a tutorial on how I created that lovely, white molding you see around the bathroom mirror.
