Before & After...

It's been a little while since the bathroom face lift was completed, but those little extra touches are something that I think are ever changing. That's what I like about accessories. When I get tired of one, I can swap it out for something else, or I can just "change" it all together. Here's a plant stand that didn't have a home, and I decided to move it into the bathroom. I left it there, trying to get a feel for it, trying it out, trying to see if it "fit", trying to see if we could "just get along", however, Something just didn't seem right...so---
Yes, I painted it. Have spray paint will conquer! I really like the glossy finish and I like how the shine seems to set off the detail of the leaves and roses.Ah, much better. Blends well, and adding the pink jewelery box was actually a really good idea and will serve me well. I have a bad habit of just throwing my jewelery on the bathroom counter, well I can't even begin to tell you how many earrings I've lost that way. Let's just say, it's a lot! Now, I've actually somewhere to put my jewelery and things. I like it much better but now I've got to start thinking about what to add to the walls. I need more...And yes, I know. That trash can is a real eye sore, but I still haven't found anything I like well enough, to put there. I'm still thinking a galvanized bucket would look pretty good.

It looks beautiful. Although, all I can think of is how my dh would stub his toe walking into the bathroom and that would be the end of it for me...lol. I can keep dreaming of pretty stuff though....

Hi Rechelle,
Great idea with the plant stand. So many things can work in some many places. Like you said, just have to move things around a bit. Have a great weekend :)
Warmly, Deb

When I was at Menards, local huge hardware store, I picked up a couple of cans of spray paint...I'm thinking ahead and have a little stand that needs a new look!!

You did a great paint job and I love the beadboard in your bathroom too.

What a cute bathroom. That is the same color I used in my bedroom. It is trying to take over the title of "favorite" that pink currently holds. Come for a visit.
