Spring bathroom update

Spring has finally arrived in Western Pennsylvania, outside and inside. This redo is one that is out of my comfort zone, but I wanted something bright and cheery in my bathroom. Once I commit to something I go full force. I couldn’t just stop with the bright shower curtain, I had to keep going with the entire bathroom. I will be showing you all my little projects that didn’t cost much at all. I shopped my house first and just had to buy some ribbon to complete the projects. Starting with the shower curtain, I found this at the Dollar store on clearance for $8.00. The rug was $10.00.


Moving on to the curtains, I had these in my stash in the basement that I purchased at a yard sale for $1.00.  They were tab curtain panels.  I simply cut off the top tabs and about another 4 inches, I used one panel on each window.  They were a little boring so I bought some ribbon from Walmart that was 49 cents a yard.  I just added the ribbon to the bottom of each panel just for some color.

Next up, hand towels. The green ones I purchased new at the dollar store for $2.00 each. The blue ones I already had. I just used the same ribbon and added to the towels to make them look a litter more coordinated and high end.

See the big “O” that was gift from my sister-in-law a few years ago. You never know where that thing will show up in the house. Next up, The glass candle holder. The base is a soup can. Yep, that’s what it is. I just covered it with burlap ribbon that I had leftover from another project. The width of the ribbon was the perfect size. The glass top is a coche, flipped upside down and is sitting inside the soup can. One of my dear friends makes her own soap and she is nice enough to give me samples. I just added them to the inside. There you have it, my new spring bathroom on the cheap. I’m very happy with the finished product.
