Another bathroom change

I found this basket for the toilet at Goodwill for $1.  It wasn't quite what I wanted for my bathroom, but I figured I could paint it since it had the light wicker look to it.  In actuality, I didn't have any chocolate brown spray paint, but I did have a gallon of wall paint on hand.  Voila!  It warmed the basket up!  Isn't it cute?Oh, and what to do with the rest of the bathroom?  I'm not sure why, but I went country with everything for years.  Maybe because I liked what my Mom had in her house - but now I'm overwelmed with getting rid of it.  One of the first things that I did when we moved into our new home was put up this outhouse border.  I've been thinking about removing it and changing everything, but I don't want to do this before I have the replacement pictures and bathroom accessaries. 

  If you have any ideas (besides ripping off the border), please let me know.  This is really my only wall.  I have one next to the shower that is about a foot wide and no towel hangers in the bathroom! (What were the builders thinking?  No wall space in the bathroom for a towel bar!)

  1. Hi! I love your little basket and how you've used in in your bathroom. I'm with you about the border. We just took off a border in our bedroom and it wasn't going to come off! Now if decide to take off your border and it won't budge, this will get it off for you - one capful of liquid fabric softener to a quart of hot water. Put it in a spray bottle. Spray it on the border, a little piece at a time, and wait about ten minutes and it peels right off!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Your bathroom decor is gorgeous! I love how relaxing the colors are. The window treatment is luxurious!

  4. lol, I posted a bathroom re-do, too! Maybe you could add robe hooks on your short wall, or a towel ring, I like to use things in a new, repurposed way, that fits my needs... I still like country, but my country tastes just keep evolving and I like that about it! Lezlee


I love to hear what you think! Thanks for your feedback!
