Nearly two years ago we repainted most of our upper level. I loved the paint colors but got stuck on how to redecorate the bathroom. So the walls remained bare. Embarassingly, even the towel bar had nothing on it.
However, God has been pruning me in areas of life, including making my house a more inviting home. I love my home. Don't get me wrong. Some rooms are exactly like I want them to be (with a few kid toys scattered across the floor). But other spaces feel cold. As a wife and mother, I want to create a space that is warm...where people want to be...and that has prompted a few summer projects.
Lucky for you, I'm letting you in on them because I think it's fun to see how other people decorate and, more importantly, we can encourage one another to be better homemakers.
Lucky for me, since my decorating brain freeze pinterest came along. It's most definitely helping me channel my inner Martha Stewart.
One of the first ideas I pinned was this one,
and, as you can see, I made that pin a reality.
I bought this beautiful bathroom set at Younkers on an awesome sale right after painting.
And I've long loved this plaque from my friend, Sara
And candle on my counter.
But the walls.....
I kept thinking about this pin and when the price of the wine/towel rack dropped by 50% on Amazon I knew that it was meant to be. Happy birthday to me!
Doesn't it look awesome?!
That became the focus for me to coordinate around so I was super excited when I found this clock at Target.
Also wrought iron, it pulls out all the colors from my shower curtain. Adding to my joy, the price in store was $7 cheaper than online and I got the last one. Score!
I put it directly over the towel rack, which I decorated with monogrammed hand towels from Kohl's.
(If you like them, they are a mere $4.99 this week and you can add coupons.) I actually planned to write out the word LOVE with them but they were out of O and V so I went with the first initials of everyone in our family. Now I'm thankful. Looking at them reminds me how richly God has blessed me.
Together they look great
And all together it's amazing.
I find myself opening the door just to soak it in.
So, now the bathroom is done. Next up, the entryway!
