The Finished Bathroom!!!

Lots of hard work and planning and the new bathroom is finished!!!
This group of art is on the wall as you walk in....
This is the little vignette inside the glass door cabinet over the toilet....
The room is small so we made it appear larger with this small vanity, it does the trick, and I had to learn to de clutter...... ha ha....
My treasures on top, the soap was my first attempt at making my own..... it was fun but I'll just buy hand made soap........ (it's easier)!!!


My shower curtain from Anthropologies, I did add the organza roses......



I love it, it is like my little spa in my own home....... yeah!
I would love to add wispy organza and twinkle lights to the curtain. Right now I have a hand crocheted table cloth, but it works. Now for the laundry room, but that's another post and alot more work!!!

LOVE how the bathroom came out!!!! That shower curtain is to die for!!! Did you get it recently? I also love the curtain on the window. You can leave it there & just add a garland with twinkle lights to it! You did an amazing job! Thanks for sharing! Charlene

I can see your style just oozing throughout your new spa. Now you get to enjoy it. My favorite touch is the bird on the ledge of the tub. Soap? Now the laundry room - can't wait to see what happens in there.

Your new bathroom is so beautiful and inspiring, now I'm going to have to update mine! I really LOVE your colors, they're so restful and rich. Twinkle lights and organza, you'll have to show us when that happens, The crocheted tablecloth works great there for now, doesn't it.

someplace in thyme said...

Oh, your bath turned out to be just perfect. I love it all esp the black. Very elegant and shabby chic at the same time. I am happy to see that you made soap. I took a class years ago and want to get back into it again. So pretty, but of course like you mentioned, it can be lots of work. You did a great job and should be very proud of yourself, Char
