This week started with phase 1 of the powder room makeover. Yesterday I finally got around to adding a few more touches.
Waaayyyy back in December 2008, I won a giveaway at Nesting Place for artwork by Laryssah Herbert. I chose two watercolor eggs, and they have been sitting in an envelope on my dresser ever since because I didn’t have a good spot for them. (Just thought I’d throw in that I won Nester’s giveaway this week, too! I guess she likes me.)
Back to the eggs. They’re perfect for my bathroom, but I needed frames. Naturally, I went to the thrift store, where I found these for $1.50 for the lot. Hello, 1990!
Never fear, Heirloom White to the rescue for both frames and mats. I hung them too high and needed something on to sit on the tank and fill in the space. The little “2” tin I also found at the thrift store on the same day; it was about $1. I stuck in some grassy stuff that I used in my Christmas garland 2008. Since the tank lid is rounded and things tend to slide off, I used a glob of stick-tack underneath the tin to hold it.
Directly across from the toilette (say it with a French accent; it sounds nicer) is this little wicker shelf. The tinted egg print has been sitting there since I made it before Christmas. I brought in the little birds from elsewhere in the house.
The little bird plate on the bottom shelf I found a a thrift store a few days ago. The colors were perfect for this room. That’s not the ideal spot for it, but it works for now.
I’m not sure what eggs and birds have to do with the potty, but the colors worked, so there you have it. My bird-themed powder room.
