This bathroom decor evolved. It started. It paused. It yawned. I guess you could say it even took a long nap.
It all started with storing three 5 gal. paint cans in the corner of the bathroom. What? Don’t you ever have decorating that starts that way? I did not want to continually look at three orange cans, so made a burlap slipcover.
I had three color choices for my bathroom at the store: Gray, green, or yellow. (Hence, the three paint cans.) I really, really wanted to use the gray. As in “hold my breath, till I turn blue and get my way, gray.” Really. But, I thought the gray wall color would look too sophisticated for the burlap. Oh, the dilemma!
Lucky for me, I have contacts at a furniture/home decor consignment store ;). This floral picture was the right scale and combined the gray paint color and the gold/brown color of the burlap perfectly. It’s also interesting that the picture has reds–since you don’t see a lot of red with gray right now, but contribute to the sophisticated/casual look so well, as do the stacked canvases. (Am I totally over thinking this whole thing? Nah, just pointing out the positives.) Plus, I waited and waited for an appropriate little shelf to come in so I could place my paper hand towels in a basket up top. (I purchased an industrial sized box of c-fold towels at Costco instead of rolls of paper towels.) The mirror frame peeking into the photo, as well as, the actual shelf, should be getting a coat of paint in a burlap-y color before too long.
Now for a leetle drama:
Phew. Now for a cleansing visual!
Lastly, the arrangement was added to give a little life and texture to the room. Okay, okay, you may have guessed that the orchid is a prop. Usually this is a holder for my keys, a screwdriver or something else that I happen to be carrying around.
As you can imagine, I enjoy this room so much more now!
