I didn't post yesterday due to the fact I was taking my Christmas decorations down and putting them away. I am working on redecorating my living room and dining room so no pictures of that yet. However, since my last post I have decided to "Be happy with what I have" and redecorate my bathroom. Everything you will see I already had in my stash of stuff. It is not completely done and I have ideas of what I want, but it will wait until I get me other areas livable again. LOL.
Now imagine your bedroom closet... you know how big that is right? Well, my downstairs bathroom off of my kitchen is not much bigger. It is probably five ft by five ft (57 inches by 67 inches per my son). I can stand in the middle and touch both walls at the same time. LOL. So obviously pictures aren't easy to take. I did the best I could.
This is before... I never took the time to decorate it even though I have been here a year. I thought that if I didn't decorate it that I wouldn't be staying here for that long. So, now that I have come to terms with the fact we will be here for awhile it is time.
That closet is my kitchen gadget storage. Nothing like thinking your mixer and electric skillet is in the bathroom. LOL. I wanted to paint the room, but I couldn't wait that long to decorate it. So I washed down the walls and began to decorate. I actually did it the day of my last post.
Like the fan in the ceiling it has never worked since I moved in.
Pretty boring huh? And yes the door barely closes without hitting the sink.
Now on to the after... I normally DO NOT do themes in rooms, but I decided to do something out of the ordinary. HMMMMM imagine that me out of the ordinary. LOL.
I have had this in my basement for a long time. As many of you know I am not into hearts anymore. So keep an eye on this piece in other photos.
Of course a picture with the lights off. LOL.
OK you can see better now. Sorry about the ugly green towel. I didn't think about it being there when I took the picture.
I know I said I don't like hearts. I need to look through some more of my stuff and replace the candle holder. I think I want a little light or something.
I'm trying to get the whole wall for you to see, but the bathroom just isn't big enough so I broke it down in the next pictures.
So here is the new window. I saw something like it in a Country Sampler I think where someone had it in there bedroom. But I thought this looked good here.
This was a tought shot. I was actually sitting on my toilet(no not doing that LOL) taking this picture. This is behind the door in the corner. There is no better way to take this picture. Not sure I like it yet especially the candle holder, but I am still working on the dining and living room so more than likely it will move around a few times.
I too saw this somewhere either in a magazine or book or in one of your homes. I can't remember and couldn't find it again when I was looking. Only the quilt was hanging on a door where ever I saw it. I'll have to show you how I have it rigged up in another post.
Like I said it isn't done and I have a few more things to add to the walls. I'd like to do some Americana (or as Steve calls it my patriotic room lol) stitcheries for in there. We shall see how long it takes for me to get them done. It's OK I have time!!!! OK I apologize for the spelling mistakes for some reason my spell check isn't working today.
