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 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.
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-
PS- Head over to Completely Coastal for a chance to win one of these!
