I’m interrupting the Victoria Quilt Show for a bathroom break!
I thought you’d like to see what has kept me out of the sewing room and into the bathroom for the last week or so…
Please disregard the arm around the door (;o) as it’s tough taking a photo when you have two walls of mirror and you don’t want to be in the pictures!!
It’s hard to make an old bathroom look new again…but we put up new lighting…new colours…new towel rack and curtains and knobs…a couple of new shelves…but the rest remains old…
The cabinets were painted with three coats of Annie Sloans Old Ochre Chalk Paint and then two coats of clear wax and a final coat of half and half clear and dark wax. LOVE THEM!! The walls are painted with Rona “Natural Spring Water”…not blue but not green either…a definite mix of the two colours and it depends on the lighting to see blue or green!
Hubby built two shelves to go in this opening in the cabinets. It was meant for a chair but I had a huge wicker basket here to hold toilet paper! This is a much better use of the space! The towels are mocha colour…NOT pink! (I need to buy some blue/green towels for here to give it a punch of colour).
Old fashion glass knobs on the cabinets….
Other area of bathroom…with more mocha (not pink) and blue towels and my old bottle collection.
The colours of the shower curtain appear whiter than in real life.
I have been collecting bottles for awhile…I love the old ones with bubbles and flaws…
Here’s my 25 cent wire rack (bought at the Palm Spring’s Flea Market) and it’s been put to good use!!
Another Thrift Shop find…
Yowzers…there’s me in my Sunday sweats!!
I put everything that I use daily in that little white glass tray…easy to get at…I can put it on the counter, then when I am finished I can slip it back onto the shelf! Keeping everything tidy!
And a final look at the cupboards…I DO LOVE them!!
So my bathroom is still old but it’s now much fresher and brighter…and it was so worth the week…or so…of mess!
Hope you enjoyed your bathroom break!! Now on with the Victoria Quilt Show…tomorrow!!
Have a magical Monday and Happy Quilting!~P
