When I moved into my new studio, it had *brand new* bathroom. It was one of the selling points. Honest, they tore out the previous bathroom!
New means new.
I didn’t embrace it. I gave it a cursory thought, threw my “bathroom” stuff in it, and called it done.
First thing I did, when I decided to take control of my apartment, was the bathroom. It’s small, which meant I could see immediate transformation. To Do:
- Take down the painting I love, but that’s sadly not “right” for the space;
- Purchase floating shelves for the space between the medicine cabinet and the wall;
- Clean out the medicine cabinet AND the vanity;
- Screw in cup-hooks to hold my hair-dryer, brush, and mirror in that small space between the pipes and the edge of the vanity.
Ready? Here we go!
Originally there was a “public” toilet in the bathroom. You know, the kind without a tank? Silver, metal piping with a handle that makes you think you should use your foot to flush. Thank goodness there’s a tank toilet, now! But it was overwhelmed with junk, slightly hidden by messy towels on the bar above, and with an ill-fitting painting above. Look:
It’s amazing what some shelving can do!
So little work! So much better! Love the silhouettes from my great-grandmother and the jars from my great-aunt’s.
Last improvement? The cup-hooks for my haircare implements:
Every day I feel like I’m at the spa, and isn’t that how your bathroom should make you feel? Yes, yes it should.
