Fancies

You know how bad I am with my Design ADD, but I figured out this weekend that it's not so bad when you take it one step at a time. This weekend, which was so nice and relaxing and fun, was full of projects, most of which were on my bathroom and a half. However, you'll never guess what I actually followed through with. That's right. I've stayed on budget and have only spent $15 so far to achieve this little fancy that I put together to inspire the space.


What do you think?? I love the thought of putting a base of black and white down and then accessorizing with turquoises and blues with a splash of coral or pink in there. So, here's my plan for the bathrooms:

Step 1: Paint the existing vanity black and extend it all the way across the wall. Hopefully add some more shelves to the upper areas.
Step 2: Create Paneling with MDF to add more Architectural elements to an otherwise bland room. 
Step 3: Create a statement making light fixture, maybe like this DIY Faux Capiz Shell one
Step 4: Update water fixtures.
Step 5: New flooring. Haven't decided what yet, but light neutral colors. 
Step 6: New shower curtain. Possibly DIY this Anthro one.
Step 7: Art, towel racks, and other wall fixtures. 

Yep. 7 Steps and I'm going to do it one step at a time, otherwise.... I'll become a mess. Sigh... And now that all my ideas are down on paper, so to speak, I'm feeling much better about them. It seems much more attainable when you break it down into 7 steps. Easy, peasy.

P.S. Speaking of Coral and Turquoise. Here it is used in a different space. 


Doesn't that just make you drool?! Don't worry, you'll be drooling over my bathroom soon enough! ;)

Hey Trista!

I see that you're thinking of giving the chandelier a go. So excited!

I've recently posted a video tutorial on making the wax paper strands. Thought it might be helpful. (link below)
