Remember this ugly vanity. There really was nowhere to go but up with this one.
My 20 something-year-old girls had long outgrown this fun Little Mermaid theme.
That vanity makeover was the first project on the list and I'm just as surprised as everyone how good it turned out. The best part. It cost nothing to create. Paint, glaze and a little rub n buff, already on hand were all I needed to make this vanity shine.
I added two new purchases this week. A new white shower curtain with a little texture, and a set of plush bathroom rugs. The rugs were a total splurge at $49.45. That's half of my budget bathroom makeover! But I found it hard to find any reasonably priced rugs so I decided to go for it. This way my girls and any guests will have a little extra luxury when they visit. I was able to pick them up on sale at Target, use my Target card and I had a $5 gift card so that saved me about $20.
The original window got a big facelift too.
It looks much cleaner and so bright. There is a blind underneath the cornice for privacy when needed. However, I love all the natural light the window lets in.
I decided to reuse one of the old wall sconces as a mini shelf. This bathroom is no longer used for kids so a candle works great and I made sure it was far enough away from anything flammable, or somewhere where it might easily get knocked down.
In case you missed the easy wood shelves tutorial last week, here's another look.
I also bought an asparagus fern for the window and moved an orchid from my plant stash downstairs to add a pop of green and nature to this space. Considering all the light that comes in now I think they will be very happy.
