Anyhoo, let's get focused...
I posted this pic a few weeks ago of my new favorite fabric-
I used it to make curtains for the master bath. I wanted a print of some sort and had looked everywhere for a fabric that would tie in the gray walls, beige tile and charcoal doors/vanity, not in easy task I soon realized. I finally found this fabric at Joann's that was perfect.
However, the $45/yard price tag was steep. I was patient and waited a few weeks for a 50% off sale and used an additional 20% coupon I found online. I needed 1.5 yards, so the original full price would've been $67.50 (ouch). With the sale and coupon, I paid $27. I also used the existing window treatment to line the curtains. On a side note, I had looked at dozens of online fabric stores, as well as 6 local fabric shops. I think it's funny how I ended up finding fabric at a big-box fabric store. I guess it pays to keep your eyes open everywhere you go!
First, let's look at the terrible before:
And here is the after:
I had decided to remove the towel rack from the adjoining wall. It was a nuisance more than useful. Once that was gone, I tried to look for a grouping of art. I just couldn't find any prints that I liked for the space and was a little concerned that the steam from our showers may warp any prints. When I was at a thrift store looking for items to go above my kitchen cabinets, I found this sunburst mirror. I looked past the yellowy-gold finish and suddenly got a vision of a collection of mirrors for the bathroom wall.
I grabbed 2 other mirrors I had in storage. One that was a clearance item from Michael's years ago and the other one I originally posted about HERE from Home Goods.
The whole wall cost $4 since 2 of the mirrors and the spray paint I already had. The best part is lining the shelf between the shower and tub with candles and how the candlelight is reflected in the mirrors.
I will be posting the winner of my My Memories Giveaway tomorrow (Tuesday 10/11/11) PROMISE! I apologize for being so far behind. if you haven't already entered do so now, HERE.
Have a lovely week! -S
