The half bath off our kitchen gets the most use in our house. When we moved in years ago I attempted to take the ivy wallpaper down but the walls weren't primed and most of the plaster came down with it. Venetian plaster was our answer during the late 90's. Two years ago we did a mini-remodel on the kitchen and which gave me good reason to change the half bath.
I started by painting the room a pale grey/blue. Then I added all the things I love. Metal frames, lithographs of babies and pets, curtain pins, tea towels with ruffled vintage fabric trim that I added. The only thing I couldn't find is a towel ring. This is one that is making do till I find just the right one.
I love the shadows these frames make on the walls.
A collection of Junior Elf books in another favorite (white enamel dishes).
Next to the pedestal sink is a vacant space that I filled with these great finds. I have two of the fridges. They are great storage pieces that are so sweet to display. A pink decaled bowl sits in the middle of the table. Above hangs a collection of ironstone platters in the favored blue. I wanted to make sure that it was eclectic enough to house more than the kiddie stuff.
Inside the fridge we store just the necessities...
Over the tank sits this little dresser that holds my daughters comb and brush as well as her ponytail holders and clips. The metal shelf came from etsy and I filled it with some thrifty finds. Tea towels, baby pillow fabric, Lefton pieces, cotton ball bunny, baby china and the cream planter.
Over the sink I took a thrifted mirror and painted it cream, glazed it and touched with just a hint of gold over the overlay. The picture came out fuzzy, sorry. The cream fit in beautifully. I used an old enamel pail as a trash bin and kiddy chamber pot to fill up the floor space.
My family loves to read all the books and I love to add to the pieces and change them out. The color made a huge change from the boring brown.
It reminds me of a child's storybook that I could read over and over.
