Bathroom Makeover

We've lived in this house for about 14 months now. When we first moved in I thought that one of the very first things I would do is decorate the downstairs powder room because it's so small and would be a bite sized project. I didn't do it. Even being so small it overwhelmed me.

This week I finally did it. It's decorated! Decorating's not my forte. It's hard for me. But here's it is:

I went with a nice blue color and bright green accents with a little grey thrown in there. I bought all new hand towels, rug, trash can, etc. and then added some fun extras.

You want to know what held me up the most? I wanted to find a little cupboard to put in there since it has just a pedestal sink. It took me forever to find what I was looking for.

I got this guy on craigslist and refinished it. I had to sand out some water damage and replace the knob. The cupboard itself cost $35 and then I bought paint and the new knob, so it was probably $50 total. I like how it turned out.

Next, I (and when I say I, I really mean hubbie) built some simple shelves using these plans. They cost $4.07 for the wood and then I just used white paint we had.

Oh, and those frames? I bought white frames and just painted them. Then I took some photos that I had and grey scaled them and added the color.

Just as I was getting on the computer to find some cute printables to put in my bathroom my friend posted this one. Perfect! I printed it and painted a frame for it as well. Love this quote!

All in all I think I spent around $150 to decorate this bathroom. Not too bad. It was completely empty before.

Now, to make my bathroom completely guest ready (cause Granny rolled into town that very day), just threw this new little baby right on top of my cupboard:

Kleenex Hand Towels. They're new. Want to try them yourself?
