Thrifty Thursday is about 'using what you have' decorating today. The first five pictures of my bathroom where taken before the 'makeover'.
I also adore this mirror that I rescued and added a new crown to, to replace the missing one. What I don't love is the clutter of the mixed grouping around it.
Other than needing to remove the collection of Staffordshire flowers from the top and shelf below the medicine cabinet, it passed muster.
I always like the repurposed train rack as a towel rack, but again it needed to be placed so high on the wall to keep from wonking you in the head, that it left room that begged for a grouping below it and that is too much for my more spartan current tastes.
The rose bath rug was great when I had all those sculptured flowers, but with them gone ... I just needed something simpler.
... and now for the renewed bathroom. I love the blue and white and black color scheme as much as ever, so no need for change there.
The medicine cabinet is now simplified with only one small basket of flowers on top. The sweet clock cupboard is removed, with just the shelf it sat on now holding a white candelabra that I already had.
The grouping around the long mirror is simplified and more Staffordshire Flowers take a trip out of the room to make room for ...
my funny steam punk birds. They are in the right color family and add a bit of whimsy to the already cheerful bathroom.
I saved the best for last. Instead of the wire train rack with the towels stacked on it, and a grouping of French pictures below, this sweet white shelf, which was made from the top of an old organ, now graces the same space. It is much simpler and very relaxing.
Thanks for coming along on our budget makeover tour, I hope you enjoyed it!!
