Thrifty Bathroom Redux:

Yesterday I decided to fix up our little bathroom in the hallway.  It has not matched or flowed in looks ever since I put a new shower curtain in a year ago.  And, it has always bugged me.  It probably bugged our guests too, especially my stepdaughters, because they knew even I could do better (and their bathrooms are super pretty).  I know, I know, it still needs to be painted, but I think it is much improved!


First, I removed the frogs:



Just kidding!  These little guys were by the front door at work yesterday, and were still on my camera.  


I had three inspiration pieces for the bathroom, and that made it go fast.  They were these three little rugs from Jill and Dad's garage sale ($3.00 each); my Grandma T.'s shower curtain that was out in the trailer, and the shelves I bought at a garage sale for $3.00 on Memorial Day Weekend.

So, there you go.  It isn't the fanciest of bathrooms, that is for sure, but it is much prettier now than it was yesterday afternoon.  Progress, not perfection, ya know.

The "after" looks great! Very cozy. It's so satisfying to take a space you're not happy with and make it beautiful.
