I challenge you today to make it pretty

I'm not sure why I feel compelled to show you some bathroom pictures. I am about to go in there though and take myself a shower while M is napping. I am currently eating a tortilla w/ cheese and bacon while I type, another piece of useless information.
Here is some useful info though....see that window treatment with the B on it? I made that out of a canvas shower curtain about 4 yrs. ago and I did use my sewing machine to make the bottom hem. I did not monogram it myself, I had that done by a professional.
Hey another thing. I had an Eskimo Joe's cup holding our toothbrushes.......I don't like ugly things in my bathroom, so I pulled a crystal dish out of my china cabinet and it is currently holding the toothbrushes. It looks so much prettier than the plastic cup.
I challenge you today to go do ONE pretty thing in your bathroom, even if you just get the toothbrushes and put them in something pretty.

My hallway bathroom is in a shambles. Nice pink 50s tile going on. We ripped down the old wallpaper and went through a couple paint colors until I found one I liked.

Still waiting for it to be done ...

I will post pics on my site when complete - sometime in the next 25 years ...

I can't do it tonight, Katy. The children have SUCKED THE LIFE out of me tonight.

I assure you that I will find a new pretty for my bathroom quite soon. It will hopefully be made of toile (because that is my favorite).

Me Love You Long Time.

Maybe that is a new NN for L!

Your bathroom is SO cute! I love that monogram window treatment, that's a great idea.

Is that a Sid Dickens Tile hanging in your bathroom?

Katy said...

Free to be...it is NOT sid. I bought that at Hobby Lobby, not as pretty, but it did the trick.

Shutters come in many different forms including Cafe style shutters (which cover the lower half of the window), tier-on-tier shutters (two separate layer of shutters), full height (covering the whole window), and shaped shutters (to fit difficult, or unusual windows).
