Vintage Bathroom

8th grade formal was Friday night.

Daisy is my oldest…so this was my first formal to send a daughter to.

{Such mixed emotions for me and her daddy.}

I watched her get ready…and I couldn’t believe how much she has grown up.

She joined a group of friends for pictures…and then she was off to the dance.

After the dance was over, 12 little girls came over to our house to spend the night!

They laughed…and shared pictures…and pulled bobby pins out of their hair…and ate popcorn…and Skittles…and lined up to brush their teeth in the girl’s “new” vintage bathroom…

…and finally dozed off about 3:00.

Shower Curtain Made From a Bedspread

Do you have one of those items that you just can’t pass up at a yard sale?

Even if you already have 10 of them that you don’t know what to do with?

You see it…and it tugs at your heart…and the next thing you know you have purchased another one.

For me…it’s vintage linens.

I currently have 5 beautiful old bedspreads that I had no idea what to do with…

…until today. 🙂

So here is how to make a shower curtain from a bedspread.

Embellished Towels

Embellished Towels

My grandmother made most of my clothes growing up.

She’d get in the mood to sew and call my mom and we’d meet up at the fabric store.

We’d flip through the pattern books…pick out a couple…and start looking for fabric.

We’d stack the bolts of fabric in the cart and head towards the trim.

My grandmother loved trim.

She’d add lace and ribbon and rick rack.

I loved the rick rack the most.

And when I was picking out these trims to embellish these towels…

…I couldn’t help but remember those visits to the fabric store.

And I couldn’t resist the rick rack.

Sweet memories. 🙂

Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint

Do you ever get a bee in your bonnet?

Well I got one in mine…yesterday.

And even though I needed to buy groceries…and do the laundry…and mow the grass...

…that bee was there.

And that bee needed to have the girl’s bathroom redecorated.

I’ve been thinking about changing things up in there.

Three girls share one super tiny bathroom.

Storage is an issue.

And I don’t like the color.

Or the shelving.

Or the light fixture.

But I knew that a bit of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint would be the perfect place to start!

Bathroom Reveal

My impromptu bathroom makeover is complete.

And, for those who have been following this little makeover, you will be glad to know that I figured out the photo editing a little better just this morning.

There is no natural light in this little bathroom, therefore the pictures have been a bit (a lot) yellow (or pink?).

Today, you can actually see the true colors.

Or, if you know me, you can see the new color of my walls in my hair.

I got some paint in my hair and I can’t seem to get it out!

The color is Toasted Almond by Porter.

DIY Stamped Hand Towels

As I finished up my downstairs bathroom makeover, I realized that I could not put my same old hand towels back out.

One of the dangers of decorating. . .

One thing leads to another.

I looked around a bit and could not find anything that I liked.

I wanted them to be simple, but to have some personality to them.

I decided to make some of my own.

Super simple.

Super quick.
