I recently remodeled our very SMALL powder room. I had the olive green paint leftover from our laundry room remodel and decided there was enough to finish this little room, too.
It seems that because everything is lower in a bathroom, I wanted to hang things lower but then that leaves my eye level (I am 5'11"!) a little sparse.
The bottom picture is a knot growing out from the tree that resembles Jesus holding a lamb. This tree is in the cemetery where my family lays at rest in Quincy, IL. It is awesome to see in person.
This is what I call the "gangster" picture of my dad on the side wall. He was sitting on a wall overlooking the Mississippi River where he grew up in Quincy, IL.
The oval picture is an antique picture of my dad when he was 4 and feeding the chickens! My grandma had this picture hanging in her home from 1924 until she passed away.
The head vase was flowers that my dad brought me when I was in the hospital as a child. The shelf is the crackle finish I just did from HERE.
I whipped out the Krylon fusion paint cans and sprayed the bathroom fixtures with the brown metallic to get rid of the ugly brass! Amazing paint!! The etagere looks so much better now that it is painted! Just a few accessories...
While at Hobby Lobby, I bought this rooster container to keep my extra toilet paper and hand towels out of site. Also found this little lamp on sale. Never buy anything from HL unless it is 50% off!
The sign above the pedestal sink says it all..."Young at heart, but slightly older in other places"! Exactly how I feel some days!!
Here is a picture of the new amber glass globes for the light fixture after I painted it a bronze color.
I sewed some tassel trim to a nice washcloth to make a tank cover and placed some "dad" accessories. His old shaving cup and brush as well as a picture of him at my grandma's house at Christmas.
This mirror was an old Home Interiors mirror that I took apart and painted with the Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze but decided it looked too black and transformed it with some crackle, tan paint and gel stain. Amazing transformation you can see HERE!
I hope you enjoyed this tour of one tiny bathroom!! It makes me smile when I go in there. My brother-in-laws don't like the "beheaded lady" looking at them while they are using the bathroom!!! After they leave, I always have to go in there and fix her. They turn her around just to be ornery!!! Men....
The total cost for all purchases was under $50 including paint. Thrifty!!!
I am linking this up to the following parties!
