Not long ago, I gave you a tour of my boys’ bathroom. Chris from Just a Girl told me to go clean another room so you all could see it. Yes ma’am. And in case you think I’m kidding, and you are under some delusion that my bathroom always looks like this, allow me to quote my five year old, “Mommy, I have NEVER seen this room look like this before! Is it going to stay like this forever? It’s like a whole new room.” Okay, Asher that’s enough honey no go run along and play. In my defense, all I did was remove the pile of clothes that had accumulated in front of the tub and clean the inch of filth that had accumulated everywhere. Asher tends to be a bit dramatic. Don’t know where the kid gets it from! *Wink, wink.*
When we bought this house it was nothing but a shell. It had been completely gutted which meant I was able to design it from top to bottom. I found this wood panel thingy at Home Goods before our house even had a floor plan designed. I had NO idea where I was going to use it, but I knew I loved it. I wanted my bathroom to have an old-world garden feel to it. This wood thingy complemented the mirrors I chose and added interest to an otherwise snore of a wall. I love it here. Tip: If you love something and the price is right, buy it. You’ll figure out a place for it.
If you know me, you know I adore the beach. All the shells you see here are ones I collected (minus the sea star.) Tip: Surround your bath with things that bring you peace and tranquility. For some it’s plants. For me it is shells!
This message in a bottle contains sweet nothings written by my hubby and used to contain my engagement ring at the bottom. He’s such a romantic. This was the bottle he used to propose to me.
Here is a pic of the privy. There is probably too much going on here. The sticks should go, but I like them so they stay. Tip: If you want to always have a roll on hand and have said rolls looking cute, place them abundantly in a wire basket.
This is my “Lettered Cottage Lantern”. Yes, Layla has a lantern named after her. I think about her and her chic self whenever I’m in the loo. I’m sure she feels honored.
More shells and apothecary jars in the window. I told you I loved shells!
My vanities are my favorite part about my bathroom. They were on sale at Lowes two years ago, and I snatched them up. I adore decorative scrolly things. Look at the mirrors, the chandeliers, the candle holders on the wall, the wood thingy above the tub, and the vanities. All of them are ornate. I can’t help it. It is what I am attracted to.
I had originally settled on a long double sink cabinet when plumbing was going in. When I changed my mind, the plumbers weren’t able to reposition the sinks without a lot of drama. No worries. I just decided I would find something to fill the awkward expanse between the sinks.
This cabinet was the perfect solution. It was a cheap find from Target. Tip: Baskets are a fantastic way to hide all of your ugliness and make things appear tidy. Rolling your towels instead of folding them adds interest and takes up less space.
