Our Home: Bright & Cheery Guest Bathroom Redo!

Our guest bathroom also doubles as my bathroom.... and since peter has his own b-room which makes this one mine-all-miiine, that means I got to make it as girly and cheerful as I wanted! If you saw last weeks post on cute, inspirational bathrooms, you might have gotten the "my-bathroom-is-ugly-and-needs-to-be-spiced-up" bug as well! I also wanted to make it more "guesty" - adding nicer things that guests can use & appreciate while doing their biznessssss in our b-room.

Here was our bathroom when we moved in:

Poor little thing hadn't been touched or improved probably since it was constructed in 1961.

There was an in between (after we moved in - before this redo) but I can't find a pic right now..
Anyway, here she is now in all her colorful glory!

Shower curtain from West Elm & bath mat from West Elm, new fancy schmancy trash can from Target, hand towels from Anthro & Bed Bath & Beyond, and roman shade from BBB too.

Yellow shelves from Uptown Country, DIY "JOY" letters - will do a how-to later!, charcoal gray hand towel from Anthro ($8), soaps from Anthro, picture of P, Benson, & me taken by the lovely Katie Norris of KNPA, jars on shelves from a thrift store, other accessories from Uptown Country, framed paper from Paper Source ($2.50 per sheet)

Bar of soap from Fresh, Soap/Lotion combo from Anthro (bit of a splurge, but I love it)

slate tassel hand towel from West Elm ($9)

Milk glass vases & jars from thrift store, soap from the dollar tree (my love)

more framed paper from Paper Source, towel hook thingy from Marshall's I think - I'm pretty sure it was $5 on clearance!

So yes its bright & a tad spastic but it makes me feel all cheery and happy whenever I walk in, which is fab.. and quite impressive for a bathroom. :) Also it smells really good now cause of all the soaps, yay! Hope you like it!
