accessorizing the bathroom


Back in November I mentioned we were remodeling our bathroom. It was the original 60's/70's pink. It been done for about 2 months now but I've just started to add the little touches. In other words, to me, the fun stuff. Above, is the shower curtain I purchased from Target. I bought it way before we got started. It wasn't at all what I had wanted and thought It would be fine to hold me over until I found the "perfect" shower curtain. But I have to admit...it grew on me. So I think I'll keep it for now!

I am going to admit right now that yes, I am a pack rat, hoarder, ebayaholic, collector of all things. But you would never know it. It's all in my attic. I can go up into my attic and shop around as if I were at an antique shop or tag sale. Sometimes I feel guilty for making a purchase that I know I have absolutely no use for...at the moment that is. But I know that one day, I will indeed need it. So I am happy to say that everything I used in my bathroom, I "purchased" from my attic.



I used to keep my perfume bottle collection in the bathroom. I don't think I will this time so for now, they are in, where else, the attic! But this little Shalimar bottle I recently purchased on Etsy and am in love with it!





I bought this old sampler years and years ago. Actually forgot I even had it. I just love the details in not only the cross stitching but the frame.


Some old milk glass face cream jars.

Light fixture is from Lowes. I don't know how to take a good picture of a light bulb, but I think you get the picture!





The bathroom still isn't complete. When it is, I will be sure to share more pictures with you!

You got that light fixture from Lowes? Wow...it looks so vintage.

just a little bit shabby said...

LOL! I have the same fixture in my entry way! Love all your "old" lovely accessories. I do the same thing but not sure I have the same amount of stash that you describe. It all looks great

Oh, great minds think alike... I picked out the shower curtain and the same light fixture. I decided not to get them because my husband has decided he wants to move, and so even though we could take the stuff with us, it kind of took the fun out of it. But it looks awesome... maybe the next house!!

Jennifer ~ This is sooooo pretty. I don't know what I love more, the ceiling light, the bead board ceiling, the shower curtain, the sampler (!!), all perfect for the space. Looking forward to more pics!

Oh my gorgeousness! It's all just delicious and inspiring. We are getting ready to start our girls' bathroom redo. I hope mine turns out as well as yours.

Cheryl Carey Bass said...

Oh, the bathroom is looking fabulous! I'm so excited for you! I agree, accessorizing is the "fun" part. I LOVE the shower curtain. Who knew Target would sell something so great? I think it's a keeper! Love the shabby chic shelf and placings. Can't wait to see the room completely finished! Keep up the good work!

Rochelle said...

Such a great bathroom reno! Love the shower curtain!

maryboys said...

i'd love to come shopping in your attic with you;) so much of this is my taste...the sampler, the old cosmetic jars, the little white shelf. lovely.

angelina said...

I love the ceiling! It's so much nicer than plain old drywall, I'll have to keep it in mind when we redo our bathroom! Beautiful work!

Stacy said...

I love the shower curtain! You have to love that Target!

Hi Jennifer- I just found your blog while hopping around, looking for other creative Jen's; which is a new sidebar item on my blog. Creative Jens--and you fit right in! I couldn't decide which post to leave a comment on, but this bathroom redo should do the trick. It is awesome!!! Great work.
