It's my bathroom!
I didn't necessarily hate it. The shower curtain was leftover from my old apartment, so when we bought our house, it just came with. I designed the bathroom around that curtain.
(hehe, there's a burned out light...)
My step dad, Wayne, actually really liked my bathroom. Even though he is a child of the hippie days, he has an odd modern taste. You should see some of the vehicles he fixes up! So fun! Purple steering wheel? Check! Lime green brake pads? Check!
So it's no wonder that he liked this bathroom. My good friend, Kayleigh, helped me do this.
Though I appreciate everyone's wonderful comments on this old bathroom, I couldn't have it anymore.
1. I painted in flat. Who does that in a bathroom?!
2. The rest of my house is more eclectic. Except my bedroom. The modern is being toned down gradually, but I love it!
3. It's a small bathroom, and with the dark colors, it just makes it worse.
It had to go.
Ooooo, it feels like I can breathe again in there!
And then we move onto the mirror. Oh my gosh I almost passed out when I saw this at St. Vincent's! It was a terrible red, and beaten. I loved it! I gave it a fresh coat of white stain, distressed it (so that you can see the red, I'm nostalgic), and added a cute ball to the bottom to hide a screw hole and to have a place to hide my ponies (scrunchies, elastics, watches, etc) while I'm showering. Awesome idea, right?!
Here's a closer look at the ball. I tied some ribbon to it to go with the vase next to the mirror.
Here's a closeup of the flowers in the vase. A touch of luxury......(sigh.....)
My new moto: It's all in the details.
Let's see....The yellow Yankee Candle I got from Younkers for only 99 cents (people want to kill me now...) Let me explain: a customer returned it. It was wedding gift from 2 years ago. It went through our system: regular price, sale price, clearance, yellow dot, price point. Price point is 99 cents. So she got the full return price, but then I bought it for "that day's" price of 99 cents.
Do you need any more reasons to apply to Younkers?
These shower curtain hooks are what I had on hold at Younkers. Only paid around $10 a set. They are Croscill, so they are definitely worth the price. I fell in love as soon as they hit the store. I will pay extra for something I love.
I also picked up some towels from Younkers. The bath towel is only $2.97 as a Bonus Buy! And the price goes down from there for the hand and fingertip towels. Hurry up! The sale is ending soon!
Let's see....these I both got at Younkers. About $1.50 each item (yes, that's a Comfort Candle for only $1.50!)
Here's the rug I picked up from Younkers for $13. I NEEDED to have this. It looks like rags, but it was worth it! It gives a modern touch to the room.
This is a towel/robe hook that I picked up at Walmart. It cost $7.97 on Sale. I could have went for the cheap $3 one, but remember "it's all in the details"
Here's one of my favorite features of the bathroom: the shower curtains.
Right where that arrow is pointing to. Yeah, that's supposed to be a wall decal from an Etsy seller that I ordered weeks ago.
I'm not going to link to the seller, because I don't want anyone ordering from them.
They have a perfect rating, but I don't know how. I finally got an invoice saying that they just shipped it today, after two f-ing weeks. Oh man.....I'm irate.
Here's what will go up there ...
Wouldn't that be cool? IF it was here.....Oh don't get me started!
Now excuse me while I enjoy that yummy glass of white wine ;)
