Changing It Up A Bit
Yesterday I was in the mood to change up the look of the bathroom shelf in our half bathroom. As weird as it may sound, that room is my favorite in the house. Why? Because it has white beadboard - which I could have in every room if I had my way.
Above the toilet is a white shelf/cabinet that we bought about five years ago at a great shop in San Juan Baptista called Annie's Cottage. Up until yesterday, the shelf held little goodies like vintage powder tins and perfume bottles. (The first pic.)
Because the bath has oil-rubbed fixtures and the frames on the motto prints are dark, I decided to add some things that I had that are more subtle in color. Now on the shelf are some antique Hazel Atlas bottles, old milk glass jars with metal lids, a fun old soap tin, & an old picture of children. Hanging from the hook is a pocket pillow that I made using black toile & ticking and old lace, my Grandmother's antique curling iron, and a little sachet. On top of the shelf I have old coin silver trophy cups and a mirror.
For now it will suffice...till I get in another mood for change. :)
