Master Bath Reveal

(A big thank you to Rooted in Thyme and Shabby Art Boutique for featuring this post!)
Happy July, everyone!  In my last post I showed you pics of our master bedroom; today I'm showing you, for the first time, a portion of our master bathroom.  It's really hard to get good pics in here because of the awkward room shape (it's long and narrow) but here goes. This is what you see looking in from our bedroom.

 I got this chippy old piece of furniture at the flea market a couple of years ago.  I love it, and it doesn't bother me a bit that its missing the doors.

You can see the very corner of the sink (which is in an old dresser) in this pic.  I put this small shabby trunk under the cabinet for extra storage.

My friend Carol made me these sweet little 'curtains'-I told you before, she's like my personal seamstress!

 I used the top of the cabinet to display part of an old crate, a plant, and my Santos doll. 

I've had this doll forever (long before I knew what a 'Santos' doll was!)  Keith thinks she's creepy, but I think she's fun. ;)

I use these shelves to hold bathroom essentials.

When you look to the right, you see the shower and this bookcase.

When I got the idea to try this piece here, I couldn't believe how perfectly it fit in this space!  I mean, there is barely an INCH to spare on either side!  It almost looks like a built-in.

There are usually towels hanging on these hooks, but I took them down so you could see the shelves better.

 I decided to go a little industrial with the accessories on these shelves.  I like the look of the metal mixed in with some 'softer' things.

An old ammo box and a metal pitcher-turned-vase work well with cotton balls and bath salts.

I got this metal bin at Anthropologie for Keith-I would've already thought it was cool, but the 'K' printed on it sealed the deal!

Some more metal goodness...

Great storage for towels and t.p.

I won't show you the sink or the commode-nothing exciting there!  But I hope that you enjoyed this little tour.

Have a wonderful day!

    My bathroom is too small to do much, but I got a couple of ideas from you.

  27. Awesome. I have an old trunk, much like the one you have under the cabinet. I am going to try to give it the same look as yours! Love you bathroom!!

  28. The fact that the little cabinet doesn't have doors is what makes it so charming!!!!! You have so many great containers, Susan!

  30. Susan,
    your cabinet is perfect and the chippier the better, doors or not! Sometimes it's the little imperfections that make things perfect! Love the addition of industrial metal in your design. Looks amazing!
