Greetings to everyone..
This is what one would call a frugal fix -up..
We are not a young family here anymore .. just a couple of empty nesters who can see selling and downsizing in the future.. We thought we would just make it look better.. I do like it..
I think it is better than BEFORE ..much better..
I put together a few ideas that I picked up on pinterest and elsewhere.. This is what we came up with..
We put on this wallpaper that my friend Tammy showed me.. It looks like wainscoting and you can even paint it..
I left it plain.. Much easier and cheaper than the real thing..
We had to keep the vanity top.. It is marble and no way was Terry parting with that..
I just added the odd touch of the rust with mats and such..
The floor was already there.. pine boards that Terry had put down..
The old photo is of Terry's grandfather..
He was a C.N. Railway engineer...
Then I changed the towels and I was happy to find these toile dish towels at Mardens to add another touch..
We had made the prim candle holders a while ago and had one left over...
I forgot to turn the battery candle on..
The prim bear was something I already had ..
I thought his colors went along with everything..
He is holding an OLD pic of yours truly...grin..
A little paint goes a long ways..
So we just touched up a few things..
I tried to find something different for over the flush...
This star candle holder was something I already had..
And then I made this wreath to go along with the other old photo sort of theme...
I found this idea on pinterest and spent about an hour making it..
If you like you can click on pinterest on my sidebar and go to bathroom decor and see some ideas...
And last but not least is another frugal buy..
