Mini bathroom makeover

Renting instead of owning has its perks.

For one thing I get to sip on lemonade and watch as someone else mows my huge lawn. I also never have to worry about fixing anything when it breaks.

The downside is that I've got to work with what's already there when it comes to decorating - like the awesome 90s wicker mirror in my bathroom or the terrible paint job in almost every room.

Despite the limitations I am still trying to bring a little sunshine and my own pizazz when and where I can.

And on that note I give you the mini bathroom makeover of 2012!


BEFORE - my sink and awesome 90s wicker mirror (nope, can't change that guy sadly)

BEFORE - my plain jane shower curtain

AFTER (ta da!)

AFTER - coordinating striped dishes for the sink counter

AFTER - My snazzy new striped shower curtain from west elm

I am going to re-purpose the old white shower curtain (which is in marvelous shape) by giving it a good cleaning and then sewing it into curtains for another window.

I really like stripes in bathrooms, I'm not sure why, but it's nice and clean (but still a bit colorful) :) a few small changes makes a big difference!
