A Quick Way to Spruce Up Your Bathroom

Santa brought me a creature from the deep blue sea this year, and yesterday I gave my bathroom a great makeover in about 20 minutes (hanging a shower curtain is a real pain; I highly recommend dragging out the stepladder for this task or your arms will feel like they are going to fall off by the time you are done!).

Whoopsie, looks like I need to paint the side of the door black (see right side of photo above). Isn’t it funny how you don’t notice these things in person but they show up in a photo? Looks like I could have moved the toilet brush and the bathroom scale to style this a little better. Oh well, at least I remembered to put the toilet seat down!

Santa also brought me some tea towels, which I’ve decided to use as bathroom hand towels. My bathroom doesn’t have a towel bar, and I’m not crazy about them, so I used over-the-door hooks instead.

I’m not too big on too much matchy-matchy, so I’ll probably move the lacquer box to another room, but I thought I’d try out being matchy-matchy for a few weeks and see if it sticks! This box is great for stashing all of my everyday makeup in one place.

    Love the new shower curtain. It would look awesome in our black, white, yellow bathroom too!! I’ll have to save some pennies for this upgrade.

    The curtain is VERY striking. I love it. I saw something similar http://www.aliceindesignland.com in a house tour.

    We got a shower curtain made of woven teflon which can leak if you let it bag outside the shower but it works great for its designed purpose. No outgassing and we used it to replace the sliding glass doors so no cleaning/scrubbing either. Just toss it into the washing machine now and again and it is good as new.
