OK, the cute doggies have nothing to do with this, they aren't even mine, but because of the way Blogspot uses your first photo as the premier photo of your blog post, I wanted it to be a cute one and not one of my "Before" pics ;)
So...here we go...
I was asked by HomeGoods to redo a part of my house with $100. I had a few ideas of what I wanted to do and where...but knew I really wouldn't know until I got to the store. And when I got there and looked around, I decided that it was my Half Bath that I was going to makeover....then the fun began!
Here is my Half Bath before:
Oak framed mirror and gaudy candlesticks that seemed like a good idea at the time!
A nice enough picture, but not really a standout in the crowd:
And a towel that sort of matches the tile on the floor...and a monogrammed nightlight:
And now for the After!
I love this new mirror! It's a nice warm, walnut tone with a chunkier molding than the oak frame and the detail is nice, too. It was only $39.99!
I do have one pet peeve though...why do they put the price stickers right on the mirrors? Does anyone know how I can get this off without scratching the mirror? Thanks!
The new candle and candle holder are so much prettier than the ones I had before. And the soap dispenser by Nicole Miller is nicer on the eyes than the Dollar Tree bottle of soap that was there before ;) I love the bling on the bottle of smelly sticks, too. What are those things called? I dug into the package so fast, I didn't even bother to read what it was ;)
I just love the crackled glass. I went for a more neutral candle color, too, than the striped ones that were there. Pretty!
If you must clean a bathroom (and we must)...at least it can be prettier...
I love this wastebasket, it's like jewelry! (Spoken like a true decorating dork, lol).
A dark brown wicker Kleenex cover...
I actually bought this picture in June from HomeGoods ($19.99!) because I loved it, but wasn't sure where to hang it...well, now I know! It's perfect and matches the floor tiles, too.
I borrowed this lamp from another part of my home. I do like the look, so I will be on the lookout for the perfect lamp for this spot soon. Need a GFI outlet, too...and since my husband is an Electrician, it will probably take MONTHS for him to do it ;)
And finally, I purchased this beautiful towel (that I won't let anyone use! lol). The colors are perfect and the tassels are a pretty touch!
I love the new look, it's so much prettier and gives the room a nice updated look. Notice that I mixed and matched colors, too and they work just fine together. Silvers, Dark wood, browns, coppers, creams, gold. You don't have to stick to one color to make a room work, even a small room like this.
