For whatever reason, the other day whilst perusing the merchandise at IKEA I got a super wild hair up my metaphorical A** and decided it was time for a change-a-roo. I spied a black, round bath mat, and a black garbage can and decided I'd do black with some splash of color. I had NO plan, no idea where I was going with this.
On Monday I went to Target and some little pails caught my eye, and an idea began to form. Then we mosied over to HomeGoods (oh Homegoods how i heart thee, with a giant sparkling llike diamonds heart). After searching around I found a frame and some candels and this:
Got the kids home and in bed and started my little project. Sorry, totally forgot to take pictures of the "in process" project. But, in the end, it looked more like this:
Then, after another run to Target this afternoon for the rest of the "pull together" I think I'm pretty pleased with the results. Let it be known, I have spent less than a HUNDRED dollars to do this.
So, here is my finished product, well almost. After looking at it, my friend Jenny (the one with more followers than me, hee hee) said that I should paint the mirror to match which is just brilliant.
Aren't the colors fabulous? There is so much pop going on. That makes me happy. The candles and frame and tray on wall are from HomeGoods. The little pail and magazine holder are from Targets dollar bin. Towells and shower curtain also from Target.
I love this shower curtain, especially because it only cost me 10 bucks. SWEET!
Little pails from Target dollar spot. Please note mirror...which, in my defense I had nothing to do with. It was in the house when we got here, and we rent, so what ya gonna do? Anyway, I'm gonna paint it, and then when we move, I'll paint it black, and it'll look grand. Meantime....you all need to vote. What color should I paint it?
Hot Green or
Do let me know. Because Jenny is right, that side o' the room needs a pop of color, and it'll pull it all together.
Parting shot of my itsy bitsy space. I really do enjoy the fun bright colors. I think it works well as the kids bathroom, but also as the guest space. No comments on the downright hideous linoleum going on there. Again, I had no control.
So, there you have it. I hope it is as fun as I think. But, if it's not, just play nice and tell me it is. My emotions are fragile today.
That said...I MUST go to bed, 'cause I'm riding the tri course in the morning. Wish me luck, 'cause I'm gonna NEED it!
