New Mirrors!

The other day I stopped in Hobby Lobby to get some cupcake liners. I ended up walking out with these babies and no cupcake liners...story of my life:)

I found these in the clearance section marked 50% off because they had some scratches on the corners. Nothing a little wood marker cant fix!

I touched them up and hung them up and love them! I have been looking for something to hang in my main floor hallway for a while now but never really knew what I wanted there. I thought about a mirror but thought I would need a huge one to fill up the wall and those can get pricey. Well I saw these and thought they would be perfect.

I now want to add some wainscoting treatment to the walls and some lighting. This is the main hallway in the house and it has no ceiling lights!! 

I really liked these two pictures to show what I want to do to this wall. Ive had them saved on my computer for a while now and can't find the sources...Sorry!

I think it will look really nice when I'm done. 
Now I just need my Husband to pick up the molding ;)

Master Bath Potty Room

Wow has it really been a month since I last posted on this blog??? I have taken a break from anything home decor but I have now gotten the motivation back that I needed to get some projects done! Today I want to share a small makeover I did in my master bathroom. Our bathroom has a separate room for the toilet and it needed some major TLC. Since we moved in I hated this room because it was so boring and the walls needed some touch up, so I always would keep the door closed.
 Here are the before pics...

Notice the powder on the floor?  Before we moved in we hired a dry waller to come in and patch up holes in the walls throughout the entire house. This bathroom was no exception to that. I wish you could see just how bad the walls were. I had to sand down part of the wall and paint with a primer before I could do anything else in the room. 

Here is the after...

I started by painting the room the same color as the rest of the bathroom. Post found here, and no we have not progressed on the rest of our master bath plans :(

I took things from around the house to decorate this small space. This room is so small and only big enough for the toilet, so I didn't want to put a lot on the walls in fear it would crowd the space. I put only a few simple touches above the toilet to give it the feel I was looking for. This basket I had on hand and love to fill it with toilet paper. Not only does it look good, it serves a purpose to!

The shelf I had in storage for a long time without a place to put it. I think its perfect for this space.

 The framed art I made and is up for sale in my Etsy shop


The only thing I bought for this space was the little lighthouse which I found at Pier 1.

I love that I have a place to display our shells from our last Cali trip a few weeks ago...

and one more look at the whole thing...

And that does it for this mini redo! 
Hopefully I can get my rear in gear and finish up the rest of our bathroom :)
