Bathroom Refresh

 I decided that it was time to move things around a little in the bathroom. You know how you want to make a change but you are not sure what to do. That was me. So, I painted the wall from yellow to white. You can see the old bathroom from the past blogs.

I took these two old picture frames, painted them to look old with primer and gesso. They turn out looking beautifully old.
I Love to Love
I had my husband to cut the board, I painted it, scratched it up a bit, bought some hooks and hung this one over the tub.
This is the other one. The rack that I had here was an old one from when we moved in the house. We could not hang anything on it since it would not stay in the wall. These board are a lot stronger. It made the bathroom feel like a little spa.
The frame says I Love You in French.
I stenciled the corners of the boards.

I had this heart in a box for years. Then I decided to add paint to it. You can see a little of the red from the original paint I added years ago. I transferred the picture with matt gel. I purposely banged it up a little to make it look worn.
I added these two angels from old Christmas ornaments.
I made this flower holder, added flowers from the $1 store.
I had these two pieces in a drawer. They can from broken wind chimes.
They rusted from being outside.
 Perfectly rusted!
I made the reef from an old book that was sitting in a box in the basement.
Yes, it was a romance novel.
Feels Romantic! Maybe it was the book:)
The window treatment are two shower curtains from the $1 store.
$1 each. I then tied white ribbon around them.
Here is another piece of junk from the box in the basement. I painted the square board, roughed it up and then transferred the stencil. I added raffia to hang it. I love roughed up old things.
I made this topiary out of flowers from the $1 store. I thought it added a little sunshine first thing in the morning.
A little bit of sun in the middle.
Dont' be affraid to change things up.
You might just be surprised on what you get.
