What a difference a gallon of paint can make.
I started by painting an old cabinet using chalk paint. I used Anne Sloan chalk paint in Duck Egg. You can check it out here how I did it.
I then transformed a mirror I had in a closet using inspiration from a catalog. Check that out here. Then I went to Home Goods and bought some new accessories, rug, towels in my new color scheme.
This has to be my favorite new addition to the bathroom.
I went to Michaels craft store and bought four pieces of pre-cut wood to create a frame. I found these in the aisle where art canvas' and paints are found. Usually canvas is stretched over these frames. Instead I had some awesome fabric I had never used that I wanted to stretch over this frame.
After putting the frame together (which just snaps together like a puzzle) I laid the fabric over the frame and decided how I wanted the pattern positioned. I then cut the fabric leaving approximately 2" on all four sides.
Then using my staple gun, I stapled and stretched the fabric over the frame.
In less than 15 minutes I had this super cool "art" for the wall. My original intention was to stencil the bathroom. After looking at the bathroom night after night and trying to visualize the stenciled walls, I decided this would be a better way to add some graphic pattern to the walls.
Much less work, less commitment, and less busy looking.
I also added a basket with towels for guests to use. I have some "show" towels in the bathroom, but I also needed some that guests can actually use. The basket is easy to remove before a shower and by placing the basket in the shower, it makes the room appear deeper. It's an optical illusion, but any illusion to make a space look larger I'm willing to try.
