After reading on Under the Table and Dreaming about her powder room makeover, I knew what I had to do...choose a neutral color and then decorate with accents. Well I LOVED hers so much that I was on a mission to find some gray paint - never would have been my first choice, but after seeing hers...
I went to Walmart (because I was getting other things) and I decided I would just "look" at colors to get an idea, well by browsing the return paint I came across the perfect color and it was 50% off ($10.98) for a gallon!! SCORE!
Here are the before photos, sorry I took down all the decorations (I was too excited to get started and forgot)
So I took Stephanie's advice and went looking for some fabric, I too wanted to make some cute DIY art pieces as she called them. I would have never of thought to do something like this. Some people are so creative!!!
I found these canvas boards at Walmart (3 pack for like $5.00) and then I got the fabric for $2.95 per yard.
I hot glued it onto the board. Then I added black trim and made some fabric flowers with accenting fabric. I made one by braiding the 3 fabrics together. The large yellow one is made from trim.
Then I set to work on the shelves. My step mom Diane gave me 3 white shelves and so I distressed them and gave them a little stain.
I had this Gerber print in the bathroom in the same location but on the dark brown. So much nicer here on the gray. I got the bird on clearance for $4.99 at Display and Costume in Seattle, then the Dream was a TJ Maxx find and I tied some of the yellow fabric on it, and the little black wire basket was a thrift find that I got for .25 cents. The black and white "shelf liner" ties in the colors. We store our toilet paper in a old candle holder (another thrift find)
Two of the shelves Diane gave me (Thanks Mom) The thingy on the left holds a Party Lite candle - but it had a blue candle so I'm going to find a yellow one to replace it, in the mean time I got the little yellow box for a $1.00 at Target and took the plant from another room. The black "kitchen" rug was $9.99 at Target.
