A while back I posted about a mini-redo of my downstairs bathroom I was planning on starting and I showed you some simple DIY art. Well, I finally figured out a solution and I'm happy to report that the bathroom is basically done!
Here is a before. First, this bathroom is tiny and it was impossible for me to get a decent picture of the whole thing so when you get to the "after" pictures, think of it like a patchwork quilt :)
I love the gray on the walls and the floor is a slate (linoleum) pattern. The shower curtain was never meant to be permanent. I'm not a big fan of the color and that together with the walls just made the room feel blah.
My inspiration for the little re-do came from the Waverly shower curtain I picked up on clearance. ($8.00!!).
I did some simple DIY fabric/canvas art. Then, I was on the hunt for a new mirror. I scoured Craigslist, rummage sales and thrift stores and just couldn't come across one the right size. So...I decided to DIY. I'll post that process later :)
Here we go:
The mirror. I love the frame - it looks finished now! The candlestick is gone. I need something else there but just don't know exactly what...I bought a new soap dispenser from Dollar Tree. Seriously, one dollar and it's a huge improvement over the plastic one the soap came in that I kept refilling! I'm thinking of maybe doing some sort of pattern on there with vinyl...
Next angle. I like that you can kind of see all the elements in this picture...a peek of the shower curtain and the art.
I told you it was a small bathroom!
The Waverly print shower curtain that started it all...
And my art, up on the wall. I love it! It was such a cheap and simple fix. My daughter loves it and it's growing on my husband :) There are a couple small other things I want to do. I'm still trying to figure out a solution for niche on the counter and I'm going to make a small sunburst mirror to probably hang above the towel bar. I've got all the supplies, I just need to get it done!
What do you think? Do you have any suggestions for the niche on the counter? I will post a quick tutorial on the mirror and my process on the sunburst mirror when I get around to doing it. So far, I'm thrilled with what I've got. :) I'll be back soon - I promise I won't have another huge lag between posts. I've been a bum :(
