Hall Bath Make-Over (Frugal Style)

This bath needed some love! It was such a wonderful fleshy color when we moved in...infact the whole house was that color, got spend a month of my life covering up that little number.

Bathroom Before

Bathroom After
The paint is TurtleDove from Behr. It's a light blue with a little bit of a yellow-y/green undertone. It is my new fave. I want to paint everything this color!

Found these little shelves at the local thrift store for $1.

Spray painted them aqua from Krylon...

And glazed them black to add some aging and put one in my bathroom topped with this cute plaque from Home Goods.
(I've been learning to like pink, the Honeysuckle Pink that is 2011 color of the year is adorable, so I've added a little to the bathroom...babysteps!)

I love Vintage Carnival stuff and this pic was right up my ally! Love it! It's 18x36 and I got the frame, again at the thift store, for $4! That's a steal since it had glass!

I got this cute towel/coat rack at the DownEast tent sale $3, Their tents sales are the best for finding random things!
I added the "Family" "Friend" "Guest" "Acquaintance" "Intruder" lables. Now there's no confusion who hangs their towel where.

To learn how to make these cute Pillow Case Bags go Here!

I had this jar so I bought a pack of simple white soap blocks and filled it.

I had this basket so I hung it on the wall and clipped some vintages French ads to it.

For something different, I took this old frame and sprayed it the Krylon Aqua.

Then Mod Podged some different strips of paper to it.

Used it as a frame around the towel ring.

Now La Toilette is a more pleasant place to do your business!
