Table Top Tuesday - Bathroom Refresh


Howdy Sweet Friends,


So how is your Tuesday going?

Mine is going.......I made out a list of what
I need to get accomplished this week,  and
right after we exercise here in a few minutes
I will start tackling it!!  lol


Last week I had been thinking I should
switch a few things around in the guest
bathroom, just to sort of freshen it up
a bit,  but hadn't yet done anything even
tho I was sort of arranging things in my
mind!!  Do you do that too??


Anyway, on Sat. morning I was visiting
a few blog and came across
The yellow cape cod blog
click here

Her post was on refreshing the bathroom.
What a lovely job she did.......so it got me
inspired and I went right in my bathroom
and got started.


This was a no cost, use what you have 
bathroom refresh!!


So knew you would want to see...........
maybe I can inspire you this time,  but you
 should definitely check out the Yellow Cape
 Cod, before you leave, if you haven't  already.




These jars used to sit on the back of the potty,
but I moved them to the shelf, and added some
raffia to to them, and added folded towels.


Two of these were yankee candle jars that I cleaned
up and repurposed, and one was a bath and body,
jell room deodorizer or something that was
perfect for the q-tips.



The label went with the room so I just left it on. 










Rolled these towels and put them on the
back of the potty,  and tied some raffia
around the wash clothes with a lil bit of
dried flowers I had!



Made the pictures myself,  years back!











This sits on the vanity area,  all I did was reverse
where the bath and body stuff was sitting and
instead of  laying towels over the edges I just
folded one towel and added a low candle
along with the lotion.















picture #1


Now this is on the other side of
the vanity.  I took the two brown
candlesticks from the shelf on
the wall,  and added this small
urn planter with a candle in it.




 Picture #2

Then I tried it with the lil plaque behind it,
it came from the shelf as well. 

Picture #3 


Then I tried it with just two candlesticks





Then with the plaque, urn and a smaller candleholder
love it with the candle lit. This was taken in the dark
believe it or not,  with the flash.


 Picture #4


I forgot to tell you that these glass candle
holders are repurposed as well.  Can you
guess what they are???





Moved the plaque over to the other side,
and liked that too!!  But that left it with
only candles.


So what do you think?
Which picture of this side of the vanity
do you like best.  Noticed I numbered
them 1 thru 4.  Give me your opinion.
Would love to hear it!!







I think #4 is my favorite!


and those repurposed candle holders
are lids to yankee candle jars turned
upside down with the plastic taken off.
That was hubbies master mind.  I said
these must be good for something I
just hate to throw them out,  and he
said how about a candle holder, got
the needlenose pliers and pulled
the plastic off and wellah..........
glass candleholders
and I just love them!!  lol










Sorry I am so late, (well, at least it is still Tuesday)
 have been cleaning in between downloads and also
 having difficulty with my pic loader for some reason. 
 Was having no issues with anything.........now all of
 the sudden it seems like everytime I post something 
else goes kaflooey!!  lol


Hope you enjoyed your visit, and maybe
 you got inspired too,  if so, please let us know
 so we can come over and visit and see too!! 
Okay!!!

Wow - Nellie, all the little touches and refreshes look so nice:) and I love how your repurposed things. Do you know I always throw away my Yankee candle jars - and every time I think there HAS to be something I could do with these?? My mind just doesn't think like that - but I LOVE your ideas!!

Hope you are having a great week and getting many things crossed off that to do list -

Hugs, friend!

My favorite is your shelf! I was thinking your towel was a periwinkle color until I read Janet's remark about it being lavendar.
You have done a great job! Very Beautiful!
Love you all,
Susie

Your bathroom looks so great. Love the colors they are so springy and refreshing looking. I like either #1 or # 3 in the vignettes and can even see one of the candles being replaced with a small greenery. I like that you have three items. Keeping accessories to odd numbers works best on the eye. Great job, lady!
