A sad little potty...

Hey everyone! Today is a good day. My last few packages are going to the post office to be mailed and my Christmas grocery list is going to be obliterated-TerMOMinator style. I spent the day yesterday stepping a little bit away from Christmas and focusing on something that has been driving me nuts since we moved in here 7 months ago. I Can't believe it's been that long already.
The hall bathroom, which is also Olly's time traveling, boat racing, water park of sorts & the venue of every bath time. The room has been a little lifeless. It has just felt so cold and boooorrrrinngggg! I promised myself that I would change it before the New Year, so yesterday I held myself to that. Of course, I didn't spend a dollar. Mostly because Christmas is in a few days and a lot of my money has already danced into the pockets of big box stores and Christmas tree farmers. So I pulled from boxes in storage and put some old things to new use. She is looking pretty good for now. At least she feels a bit cozier...and I'm not sure why that's important for a bathroom. But, for me...it is.

I just simply used some curtains from our previous house in Baltimore along with some accessories and pictures that had yet to find a home in this house and made the room feel a bit more lived in. And if you're wondering how I infused some Christmas cheer into this tiny space...I found a way. Remember Oliver's tree Adventure?

well, you'll be happy to know his little tree found it's home....
Adorned with some red berries picked off the vine in town. I think the bathroom got quite a nice- no cost start towards the pretty decor finish line. I was so happy to accomplish this little upgrade while Olly was sleeping. It was my little Christmas present to myself.

I hope you are all having a great week. Happy shopping, baking, and gift wrapping. Until tomorrow folks ;.)

  5. I love it! and I LOVE the ceiling, but more importantly I LOVE that giant branch! Where did you get it!!


  6. Thanks so much for your sweet words ;.) the shelves & brackets along with the ceiling were all courtesy of the landlord. The brackets I have seen some similliar at home depot though ;.) & the ceiling is the old floor of this house reused...brilliant, right? But I can't take any of the credit ...thanks again!
