Last week I introduced the sad state of our half bath and the plans that I had discussed for it. In case you missed it here is what I'm working with:
The only thing that I've purchased so far is a new light fixture. I was going to work with what I had but I really don't like it. You can't really see it in this photo but trust me it's bad. And as much as I'm on a thrifting and upcycling kick lately, I just don't have the energy (or to be honest want to) do anything with this light fixture. In fact I'll probably donate it.
But here is the new light fixture that I'll be replacing the old, dated one with:
Seagull Lighting Driscoll light fixture
I originally found this on Home Depot's website, but then ended up finding it on Amazon for $20.00 cheaper. Woo hoo!
I'm hoping this is going to be the only element that I purchase aside from the paint. One of my goals for this challenge is to use what I have around the house without coming out of pocket too much. So far so good.
Here is the light fixture with other elements that I pulled together:
The navy and white towels I had purchased from Lands End last year. They are really thick and nice quality and so versatile. And then the floral towel I had seen at Home Goods a few weeks ago. They caught my eye so I picked up 2 of those and figured I could return them if I didn't use them.
The mirrors are also from Home Goods and I've had those for a while. I had actually thought about getting rid of them but I'm so glad I hung onto them. You never know when you can make use of something, so I think those could work well in here. And have you ever realized how mirrors bounce light around a space? Especially small spaces!
That's it for this week friends. I've pulled together a few elements that I'll be using and next week I will hopefully show you some updates in the paint color department (I tend to choose paint last - usually, not always).
