. . .Otherwise known as our one and only full bath. That’s right ladies and gentlemen – our family of four (plus any occasional overnight guests) only has this tiny little salle de bain. True, there is a powder room downstairs (click to peek here), but this minuscule enclave remains the one and only place to bathe or shower in our petite casa. Oh, the abject degradation to which one will subject oneself for the sake of a good oyster bar within walking distance. - But really, I kid. Our small house is a conscious choice, and while it does make it possible to live stress-free inside the beltway, I’m not sure I’d want anything much bigger, no matter where we lived.
Anyway, here are a few pics of this tiny room, which until now have not seen the light of
blog day because I just wasn’t all that excited to share all ~30 square feet of its green-tiled splendor. Now I’ve gotten over myself, so voila:
Just to give you a little perspective, this is the shot I get when my rear end is completely smooshed against the sink, and my back is curved back toward the corner a la Cirque du Soleil. Welcome to our expansive toilette. And now, for your viewing pleasure: the north-east corner.
Ok. Moving right along.
Now, I’m quite less than crazy about the adhesive mirror that we applied for the girls tooth brushing self-voyeurism, but this corner has come along way since we painted the formally wood-toned cabinet and mirror and had the foul faucet replaced. Still a lot to be desired, but it’s a start.
And, finalement, you have ze actual shower/bath/doorway. But what is behind curtain number 1?
Oh, just a little slightly rusty shower storage, including a big random heap of rubberduckmylittleponybabydollswhopee. Oh, and if you are especially observant, you’ll notice that my husband keeps his Mach3 shaving cartridge on a lady’s handle, and I like my Venus blade on a man’s. We are so weird like that.
So, you can see that this bathroom was nothing to get excited about. But finally, I figured since we spend so much time in this room that it was worthy of some love. Last week I pulled the trigger on a couple of ultra-clearance items at Target, and it was just the inspiration I needed to overhaul this room. (for about $30 total!) This is a work in progress, but I wanted to share just a sneak peek:
More to come! For, now I’d love to hear from you all! Have any of you ever found an item that was on über-sale, and it ended up inspiring an entire room makeover?
