Gussyin’ up the Guest Bathroom

T-minus twelve hours ’til Claudia’s Cloth Barn opens tomorrow morning…

…and you can bet your bottom dollar I’m counting down the minutes!
Claudia has the best selection of fabrics, and I can’t wait to get our farm table skirted now that the (ahem) plumbing part of the reno has been handled. :-)

I’m torn between using a striped fabric for the skirt, or a striped rug on the floor.
I visited DashandAlbert.com today and fell head over heels in love with their “Swedish Stripe” rug…

I pulled it up on my laptop and brought it in the bathroom to get a feel for how it would look with the new tile…

…me likey. :-)

Me also likey the one-of-a-kind find Kevin brought home from our local flea last month.

It’s actually two chunks of wood, but together, he thought it sort of resembled a fish.

Especially when you flip it this way…

Once it’s cleaned up and coated with poly I think it’s going to look great on one of the shelves.

I haven’t thought too much about how I’m going to decorate yet, but I have been stockpiling some things since Kevin brought home the “Wish”. (that’s “wood/fish”)

I got this great soap-on-a-rope from White Flower Farmhouse

It smells so delicious! I’ve been contemplating wearing it as a necklace just to keep it closer to my face.

Our prop stylist Allistair Turnbull left us this great Martha Stewart pitcher after our Nest magazine shoot…

In a perfect world, I’d love to set it sink-side and fill it with fresh flowers every day!

But in the meantime, I’ll be happy if I can just make a decision about whether to use a striped skirt or a striped rug. :-)

On Saturday I’m looking forward to hanging out with my pal Rhoda in Atlanta.
We’re going to Eddie Ross’ framing workshop.

I love this video he shot at the Stormville Flea Market in New York:

When he said “1950’s BAM. BOO.” I honestly thought that we may have been separated at birth. I can completely relate to Eddie’s excitement for old stuff! I’ll take an ironstone egg cup over a new pair of shoes any day!
:-)
And the end of his video totally reminded me of the end of the video I shot on our trip to the Endless Yard Sale last year. Gotta love a trunk full of junk!

Happy Monday y’all-

Layla
