What did you think I was going to say??
My hall guest bathroom is hideous. Ugly tile. Ugly floor. Ugly vanity. Ugly shower doors.
At least it was.
I remodeled it (except the floor) this past winter. Once I get that floor done I will show you the whole room in a future post. Promise. I heart it!
Let's get back to the point here shall we?
The bathroom had this worthless medicine cabinet on the wall by the door. I didn't need it and I thought it was ugly. But...it's built in. Boo.
It had 2 shelves in it that I removed. I hand cut over 20 nail ends off, covered all the holes in wood putty, sanded and painted. So here is what it looks like
Great little nook for something lovely. Like a white vase...or better yet, 3 of them!
The problem is, I am picky. I want something slender with a great shape, in the right height. Is it easy to find something that meets my standards? Um, no.
Enter>>> Dollar Tree
I found these vases for a whopping buck a piece. Score!
Ok, so maybe they don't look that great just yet, but they will.
I've seen a lot of people in the blog world creating the look of milk glass and I thought I'd try my hand at it.
Maybe I added too much water to my paint, but it all ran out and left these weird paint clumps inside. They were gross. So gross I didn't even bother taking a picture of them.
Next best thing?
Why, spray paint of course!
I gave them a quick coat of primer, then 2 light coats of gloss white.
*BONUS* the spray paint filled in those ugly etchings on the outside!
Add to that some simple yellow flowers and now I have a pretty little nook in the bathroom :)
Love Love Love
Here's the breakdown for my super cheapo craft:
$3 - 3 semi-ugly vases
$1.50 - flowers from Hobby Lobby (half off baby!)
primer and spray paint - already had on hand
Mr. Perfect and my checking account personally thank me for my thriftiness (is that a word?)
