Hope you all had a safe and fun Fourth of July!
The family and I spent our day at Grandma and Grandpa's house, which is always delightful!
Today I'd like to show you a few changes I've made to the guest bathroom in an effort to make it more pleasing and cozy feeling.
Not wanting to spend alot of money on the project, I weeded through my stash of thrift store finds for inspiration.
It quickly became clear an easy, cottage style makeover was the best way to go.
After updating a few items with paint, everything fell together quickly and I felt like I had a new room
The walls have been painted a pretty blue that I still haven't tired of yet.
Other than a few accent piece in various shades of blue, I tried to keep everything else cream or white.
At the vanity area, bathroom essentials where placed within easy reach.
Have you ever tried Bath and Body Works "Just Picked" line.
I've used the Garden Strawberries scent here, oh it smells so good a swear you can practically taste strawberries
Image squeezing a handful of fresh picked strawberries in your hand - this soap smells just like that.
I also have their Lemon scent which is equally good.
Small canning jars holding bathroom essentials are corralled on a simple ironstone platter.
A small wicker basket hold extra rolls of toilet paper within easy reach.
And some pretty artwork and chippy frames dress up a small corner wall.
On the other side of the room, the bead board and hooks I installed a few year back and are still a favorite of mine.
The over-sized hooks are so handy and easy to use I have a hard time believing I will ever go back to using towel rods.
Underneath the hooks I brought in a simple, pale blue bench to add a pop of color and to help fill up the space with useful items.
To fill up the space above the beadboard, I printed out two vintage prints of birds and placed them in distressed frames.
To carry on the bird theme, small Home Interior birds where painted and distressed and then hung above the frames. I think they look very cute.
And last but not least, a simple basket was placed in the corner to corral anything needing to be washed.
Hope you enjoyed this mini makeover
