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.
