Mini Makeover

I was off Friday so decided to update my bath a little with some deeply discounted items from my favorite store *smiles* I heart the colors in these pictures and think they blend nicely with what I have going on so far

A closer view...

I had a chrome over the door towel rack which was fine when we lived in corp housing and my bathroom was decorated in white, ice blue, and black but it just didn't go with the warmer colors of our home. Plus I love me so wrought iron. I hung this about 4 times in various locations in the room before deciding on this spot. I even got out the spackle and filled the holes so my darling Mr Darcy wouldn't notice.
See under the sink there? I popped my chrome finish trashcan into this wicker basket. You seriously don't want to know what my boss sold that to me for *smiles*

This chest was my husband's from childhood, it's not antique, but it is his so love it all the same. It seriously needs some love though, I have this idea of painting it and doing the antiquey finish with some new knobs. Any suggestions on color? I have some left over upper wall paint and I will have some black paint soon for my big honkin' furniture rehab to end all rehabs...

The Poo Poo Palace now has a hidey hole, I hated it sitting out in the room! Oh and I learned that while silk is gorgeous and makes a lovely shower curtain it also watermarks... *sigh*

The metal kitty was last year's clearance at work and the blue bottle came from husband's grandmother's barn! Love that bottle. I had our extra rolls in a chrome basket but I think this one looks better. What do you think? Improvement?

Thanks for looking at my mini bathroom makeover/update!

I just discovered your blog. I'm sooo impressed by the changes you made to the bath room. I don't have towel bars either. I've "got me some iron" too. Even as simple as it may seem to tuck your trashcan in a basket it makes a big difference. I've got a couple of those that could use the same touches. Thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to the furniture re-design too.
Have a *Sweet* Day!
