Bathroom Makeover

I wish I had shot some serious before shots of our bathroom, but alas, I did not. I will leave you with this description "poop brown walls, gold brassy handles, and picture perfect 1990s." I feel like that will give you enough of a visual. We had limits because we do live in a rental. If it was our house I'd rip out this poor neglected scratched up vanity, or at the very least paint it. But instead we felt like more feasible was spending $30 to get new hardware for it.

Without further ado,  I leave you with our new refreshed corral colored bathroom:


 Same shower curtain (a lovely gift from my sister a few years ago) but updated brushed nickel hardware for the drawers/cupboard. Yes, I left our toothbrushes on the counter for the photo. I feel compelled to say, "See, Bloggers are just like us!" (Which will make no sense unless you read trashy US Weekly)

Our bathroom was in need of some storage, so I picked up these cute black fabric woven basics on clearence at Fred Meyer ($8 a basket!) 

 Close up of some art from some local shops, a plant (carefully placed out of a cats reach) 

One of my favorite pieces of art purchased from Etsy.

I'm all about creative storage. These were repurposed from my wedding.

Above the toilet is an old gold victorian style 70's mirror I picked up thrifting. I spraypainted it with black flat coat. 


More creative storage. I got this idea from a Real Simple e-mail about putting toilet paper in a crate or basket. I though it looked much cuter than those tacky toilet paper holders. And yes, we do buy our TP in bulk from Costco.

So there you have it, a peek into my new bathroom! Hope you enjoyed.
