I've been cleaning up around the house this late winter and spring just waiting to share some of the lovely spots in my home with you...
without much ado....
here is a sneaky peaky at my bathroom.
(We only have one!)
We moved into this house about oh.....a decade or so ago.
I was in love with this old fashioned vintage aqua color.
It was SO difficult to find!
I had to use an antique shelf found in a dusty old antique shop
to custom color match at the paint shop just to get the color!
you find these colors
I still love the color to this day, and am glad we decided to go with it.
I especially love our original claw foot tub in blue.
It makes me feel like I'm soaking in the sea when I bathe.
(Which quite frankly isn't enough...as showers are simply faster!)
The tile floor was installed and grouted by us, as well as every other detail you see!
I even had my hubby cut a hole into my parents' hand-me-down buffet to fit our sink into!
We worked very hard to remodel what was once two tiny rooms so we could have a larger bathroom.
(Hey, if you're only going to have one....it had better be big!)
I like collecting vintage and new apothecary jars to store regular old stuff.
It makes simple turn into extravagant.
|Don't you love my little laundry chute in the background? It was original to the home, which is a 1913 Craftsman.|
I also enjoy using vintage pieces in my bathroom.
I scored this little desk for cheapers at an auction years ago, and the antique chair was found on a road trip to Portland with my sisters and mom.
(We actually had to strap things to the top of the car, which happened to be
an extra large station wagon!)
I'm also a sucker for display....I think ordinary spaces can be beautiful by tweaking things just a bit.
Slowly, I've been collecting old shaving mirrors over the years.
I'm sure you've also noticed that I've been collecting vintage beach themed oil paintings...
they just make the room...don't you think?
I hope you've enjoyed this little sneak peak of my bathroom.
It's nothing fabulous....but we like it.
Even if it was SUPER budget savvy....it still feels like heavenly bliss to me
after a long day at work, to come home to a hot shower & soothing "beach side" views.
what have you been working on in your homes recently?
I love to see what you've been up to...feel free to give me some linky lovin' in your comment if you'd like to share.
Well, I'm off to do my tax appointment (whoo-hoo!) but I'll be back again soon with more...
Have a great Easter week everyone!
