little changes

As you can probably tell this is a little picture of my bathroom and one of the most "peaceful" places in the house. Our house is so tiny its hard to get much privacy or peace and quiet but if you come in here and shut ( and lock) the door you can kind of hide out.

Anyway, a few weeks ago I decided that the bathroom needed a little make over because as tends to happen, the toiletries were taking over and stuff was disorganized and cluttered.

I had the shower curtain already and also the shelf unit from Ikea but it was just messily jammed with stuff so I picked up the two white baskets ( Target) and treated myself to new towels with my commission check from the art gallery :). Fortunately the Simply Shabby Chic ruffled towels I had been coveting were on sale and I accented them with a few in the aqua colors (especially hand towels) along with a couple of large plain white towels for after showers.

The rest was easy.. I just purged the old, yucky, outdated product, organized it in my bins and rolled up my fluffy new towels. Some of the more "messy" stuff, like bathing suits and beach towels are on the left over which I hung a pretty, filmy, white Shabby Chic curtain I got at Goodwill. score!

Now everything is so pretty and calm and tidy. I love being in here and look forward to employing some of these little tricks to other parts of the house.
