Here’s just a quick post to show you a new find, one I’m actually keeping.
I received a call from my neighbor a little before noon today. He had found something in the “Treasure Box” he thought I might be interested in. The Treasure Box is his name for our recycling dumpster. Inwardly I groaned as I just realized how close the holidays are and it was a goal of mine to have all the projects cleared out before hosting Christmas at my place. But I headed over to see what he found, the inner groan left very quickly.
Here’s the latest treasure. It needed a quick wash and then while not horrible, I wanted it to blend in with my bathroom colors which are blue and white.
After a quick wipe down of the dust hiding in the crevices, it was time to spray paint this shelf and move it indoors.
The space between the tub and toilet is tight and very few things would fit there, but this was a perfect fit. While I wanted to give you the full treatment of how this will be used, I want to give it a little more time to cure. But here’s a little preview.
As you can see it’s not very wide, but any thing over 4.5 inches wouldn’t fit here. Guess it’s true if you wait long enough you will find exactly what you need. I will add some wash cloths on the shelf to be closer to the tub and a couple of towels, all I really need close at hand.
I bought the paint for a lamp I picked up last month, it was originally gold and I didn’t like it. But the white is too much on the entire lamp. I’ll be showing you soon how it finally came together.
And here are two quick and easy ideas for inspiration for your bathroom. No master skills required or large pocketbook.
- Bathroom shelf makeover from found cabinet
- Want really cheap, how about cardboard, toilet paper rolls, and pieces from an exercise mat? I’m not kidding, this is a wonderful way to update a bathroom.
