Blinged Out Bathroom

(Thank you to Debra at Common Ground for featuring this post!)
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, I thought I'd show you more of my holiday decor.

Our first floor powder room is tiny, but it still deserves some holiday sparkle!
So it got all blinged out with silver tones and glittery accents.

I started with a tarnished silver tray and built on it with a silver tree...

...decked out with a few glittery ornaments...

...and placed in a 'French' bucket purchased at Tuesday Morning.

Then I added a glittery cardinal perched near 3 little zinc pots...

...and I filled a little silver dish with some clock faces (recently purchased at an Antique Show) and a mix of frosted and shiny silver balls... create this vignette...

I've had this rusty metal cart in here for ages.  It fits the spot perfectly, so I just change out the accessories.

I hung the sparkly 'Noel' sign on the glass knob...

...and filled a painted wooden box (with my favorite number) with large silver ornaments.

On the bottom shelf I used an old metal bucket to hold rolls of toilet paper...

And here's a wider view of this VERY small room...

On the slice of wall space between the cart and the sink I hung an unique item that I just bought at a little vintage home decor shop.

It's a rusty metal lid from some sort of barrel-that got my attention right away!  Some creative person glued sheet music to it, glittered the edges, and added a sprig of greenery.  So simple but charming!
It really spoke to me and I had to bring it home!

I placed a mercury glass candleholder on the sink...

...and dressed up the vintage mirror with a glittery white and silver holiday sign...

On the other side of the window I hung a tall, skinny barn wood chalkboard...

...written with a Christmas sentiment...

So there you have it!

My little blinged out bathroom!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day :)
