Small bath redo

I hope everyone had a great week-end. We are at the condo for a few days and I thought I would share the small bath redo. Don't blink or you will not be able to see it,  the room is so small. When we bought the condo a little over a year ago the bath along with every other room was painted builders beige.
I wanted to go for an old beach cottage look and with my love of thrifting and cheap, frugal finds, I set out to make some changes.
The first thing I did was to repaint the room. Sorry I don't have a before. That was before I got into blogging.

The paint is  Wave Crest by Behr Ulta  and it is the palest of blues.

Next, I took down the old brass light fixture, with the help of Mr. Vintage S and painted it white rustoleum.
Sorry about the picture quality.The top picture is a truer color.

While I was on a roll I painted a brass candle holder from Goodwill and a half price sale basket from Hobby Lobby with white rustoleum as well. Man that candle holder is heavy. It could be repurposed as a weapon.

I was so excited, the shower curtain is a $2.00 Goodwill find. I was even more excited when I priced a similar one at Bed Bath and Beyond.

The cherub box, small candlesticks and vase were all thrift store finds as well as the candle sconce.

These lovely cross stitch pictures were from a dear friend. The center 3x3's are cross stitched to blend with the pictures. Every stitch is perfect... such patience!

I found this shelf at... you guessed it, Goodwill. It was a gold color  so, it got a coat of Rustoleum.

 The roaring twenty's figurine  was a gift from my sweet grandmother.She painted her for me in the 70's.
Does that make her vintage or just me? She has a hairline crack but I wouldn't part with her for the world.

The one rule I had in redoing the bath was that anything going in it must be old... like me!

I'm glad you dropped by and y'all come back.

  1. Annette, The bath is so pretty. I love GoodWill finds and it's fun to see how you have revived these items with paint. The cross stitch pictures are wonderful. What seems like 100 years ago, I loved to cross stitch when my eyes, hands & neck could handle it. Thanks for sharing; you did a great job!

  12. Wonderful makeover. And on a budget? You did some serious thrifting. I especially love the figurine. The room truly has the coastal look.
    Thanks for visiting my living room and all you kind words. You were very gracious. Hugs, Ginger

  13. Hi Annette! You did a lovely job transforming this bathroom! The color is perfect. I love all your refinished thrift finds. And the shower curtain is beautiful. The roaring 20's figurine is so pretty and such a wonderful keepsake treasure! Thank you for joining TTF. Have a fabulous Mother's Day!

  14. What a nice looking bathroom. I am so jealous of people who find such good bargains at Goodwill. The ones around me are high enough to make me consider new if I really wanted something.

  15. Your bathroom is just lovely. I love the shower curtain and the cross stitch pictures. Your friend is very talented and patient to do those! Pretty wall color too. I've considered painting my bathroom blue too, but there is no window in that room, so I feared what the color would look like. The blue works well in your room though.

  16. you and Rustoleum did a great job on this bathroom. It looks so pretty, and I love the roaring 20's lady. Those cross-stitched pictures are such treasures. laurie

  17. Your bath looks beautiful! I love the way you placed it all. And such a calm color.
    Lovin' the roaring 20s lady!

  18. Your condo bathroom redo is so pretty! Such pretty color for the walls... Love the battenburg laced shower curtain and other thrifty accessories...that figurine your grandma made for you is priceless for sure :)
    Big hugs,

  19. Hey There, So glad you stopped by my blog.... Isn't this beach makeover stuff fun? Wondering if you still live in Spartanburg and where your beach condo is located. Ours is in Destin Florida. My cousin still lives in Spartanburg...well, actually the lake in Greenwood but she is trying to sell and move back to Spartanburg. Nice visiting with you and hope to chat again!

  20. You have beautiful paintings in your bath room.
