I wanted to go for an old beach cottage look and with my love of thrifting and
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.
