Not a lot has changed from my "blank slate" posts other than Houston hanging up my wall decor for me. But I figured I would show you the current and most likely permanent state of my apartment.
Let's start with the bathroom:
The bathroom went through five or six transformations before I figured out what I wanted. See how it looked before here.
I knew I wanted white fluffy towels and almost bought these from Target for $6.99 each (ugh), but Costco came through and I was able to get six towels for $24.00. They are big, fluffy, spa-like towels, and I love them. I also got these two gray hand towels from Target as accents.
The shower curtain was a find from TJ Maxx and you can read all about that discovery here. I love how light and airy it is and I am kind of obsessed with the pattern - I have to restrain myself from buying picture frames, towels, pillows, etc. (It looks gray in the photo, but it is a pale blue).
I tried two other floor mats before I ended up going with "plain" white. The first mat was from Marshalls. The color wasn't perfect, but I thought it would be close enough - that is until I got it home and one of the side seams was completely crooked. Back to the store it went. The second mat was from Target (someone stage an intervention!) and I liked it, but I just couldn't justify spending $30 on it, so it went back as well. Houston had two extra bath mats at his house and insisted that I take them "just to see" how they looked. I was reluctant to do all white mats - feet, hairspray, makeup... it could get destroyed. Once the mat was in the bathroom, I was in love.
Back in March I bought this apothecary jar knowing I wanted to use it for cotton balls in the bathroom. I actually had a birthday coupon from World Market for $10, so this beauty was mine for five dollars! The Q-tips are corralled in what was once a Bath and Body Works candle. I followed Summer's tutorial HERE for cleaning it out and re-purposing it once the candle was gone.
I'll be back with more updates soon. Have a happy Monday, friends. The weekend is only five days away!
