New decor for the Guest Bath

I redecorated the guest bath AGAIN.  I seem to change things around in there more than any where else.  I went to Home Goods and bought a floor candle holder.

I changed out all the red decor and went with cream and browns with touches of green.  I'm leaning towards a cotton Christmas and wanted everything to be the color of cotton.  Another thing I did was changed the curved shower curtain rod out for two standard rods. One for the plastic shower curtain and the other is for decorative curtain.  I jumped on the drop cloth band wagon and purchased one at Lowe's.  I think it was under $10.00. I just folded it over and used drapery rings with clips to hang it.

Next I decided since this bathroom was no longer being used on a regular basis that it didn't need a clock in it any more.  So, I put a shelf with some decorative hooks up.

Then I added a picture frame that I had embellished with some left over ribbon from my fall Deco Mesh wreath that I made and a cross.  The two little girls in the picture are my mother and her little sister.

I changed out some of the decorations in the cabinet.  Just some small changes, nothing big.  I added the zebra and fleur-de-lis candle holders on the right and the harlequin pattern vase with a cross on it to the left with my little lamp and changed the cabinet hardware to a cream color.

Lastly, I added a harlequin rug and a little round table I picked up at TJ Maxx for $7.00 (which the tag said was 90% off) because the top was separated. I glued it with wood glue and now it's good as new.

I love it.  But, who knows what it will look like a month from now.  Changing things around keeps them fresh because you see them in a new light. That's what makes decorating so fun.

  5. Theresa, I like this look with its natural theme. I sure wish I had a ginormous cabinet like yours. Lots of room for display and storage! HOw sweet that you used that old photo of your mom and aunt, too. Adds just a touch of personalization! :-)
