Bathroom Quick Fix

Do you ever get tired of things, I know I do and my bathroom was just not doing it for me anymore. So at Marshall’s one day I decided to buy a new shower curtain, I’m loven gray these days so I looked for one that had gray in it. There is no window in here so it had to be light one, maybe for fall/winter I’ll find a darker one and use that instead.
I  found the black tin container with some pretty good looking faux ivy in it to use up on this cabinet which I found at a fleamarket for $5.00! Yep, couldn’t believe it either when the guy told me that…I think it needs repainted but can’t make up my mind though what color I should paint it. I’ve been reading all about the chalk paint and milk paint that’s out there and I’m really intrigued by it. The price is a lot but they say it goes a long way so it sort of evens it out.

I did spray some Metallic paint on a paper plate and with a small brush I hurried and painted the knobs, had to hurry because it dries real fast on the plate:)

Bought some gray and white hand towels and added the vase of shells!

I love the gray towel hanging there and the faux flowers that I found at Gabe’s for $7.99 also bought a new soap dispenser. This bathroom is so small that to take this picture I had to stand in the tub!

I do still love my sink though! You can see the new wastebasket to there on the left.

You can see the shower curtain a little better here plus the new shower curtain rings!

So there is my quick fix for my bathroom, sometimes you just have to spruce up something to satisfy the decorating/nesting urge we get once in a while don’t you think?

Thanks for taking the time to stop by, I haven’t been around to you lately and I’m sorry about that, I’ve been working and on my days off I’ve been watching the girls so my time and energy is Tomorrow we leave for Annapolis, MD. Michael is having an engagement party on the Bay, I hope the weather is good for it. After that we are going to Ocean City, Md. to surprise the girls, they will be there and they don’t know we are coming, so it should be fun!
Here are some wonderful parties I’ll be at, be sure to stop by and get some great inspiration!

Love your changes, Rondell. It was pretty before, too, but sometimes it just feels good to change things! You could paint that cabinet and a LOT more things with a quart of chalk paint - maybe 50 cabinets like yours. I was impressed with how far it goes. And that's a GREAT little cabinet for five bucks!

Your bathroom looks great! Our bathroom is just like yours...same layout, small, and with no window.
Have fun on your trip.

Beautiful, Rondell. What a lovely bathroom. Gray is a great color, and is actually getting really popular these days :)

Hey Rondell! Yes, I get so tired of the same ole same ole at times too. Your new touches are wonderful. I really like the new show curtain. It's very nice and looks great! It sounds like you are off for a fun vacay with family. I hope you have a wonderful time! Enjoy!!!
