I'm trying to look around the house
and find little jobs that I can do
that won't break the bank, but will update
and keep our home in good repair.
This little bathroom sign is hanging
on the door to the bathroom
it was a gift many years ago from
Carol of "Art & Sand"
Carol's blog was one of the first
blogs that I ever starting following.
She doesn't blog anymore, but you can
visit this link to her blog and
right under her profile there is a
button to find her on Instagram.
Today I'm going to share how I spent
$65 and gave my bathroom a facelift :)
This was our bathroom when we
bought the house.
Pretty Ugly right . . .
Then Steve did his magic and paneled,
put up a shower wall, new toilet,
and new sink top and faucet and I painted.
That would have been 8 years ago this April.
I liked it as it was . . .
but after eight years it needed
The gray paint was $37 and that was
only because they didn't have
the right base paint in a quart,
so I had to buy a gallon.
That little ring towel holder
was the whole reason for this
We had never put a hand-towel holder
in this room, so I always just had
one laying on the sink.
It's was $15 at Lowes.
The picture with the farm animals
was a frame that I had boxed up ready
for a yard sale. It had rose prints
that I covered over with these farm prints.
I printed them on my computer, $0.
The little wire basket was also headed for
a yard sale, I rescued it from a box in the shop.
The little duck container is one I
purchased years ago from Goodwill . . .
I keep my ponytail bands in it :) $0.
That little piece of 2X4
(I use it to prop the window open)
did have a red & white check fabric
on it . . . so with a little fabric,
buttons and hot glue, it is refreshed, too.
I keep bottles and boxes on
the bottom shelves so I purchased a
$3 curtain rod and had this gray fabic
in my stash.
It looks so much better under cover :)
This is a sign that I painted years ago
on an old scrap of plywood. $0.
Last but not least . . .
I found this rug for $10
at Ross For Less.
It's nice to have a change.
Now if only the snow would
melt away . . .
That would be a welcoming change.
I have to admit that it is pretty.
Well that's my post . . .
I hope that I can inspire you
by showing you it doesn't have
to break the back to make a change.
We will all be so busy outside
after Spring comes . . .
so this is the perfect time of the year
for inside jobs :)
I'm looking forward to reading
Have a lovely day . . .
and God bless you all.
