We remodeled our tiny, 4' X 8' master bath a couple of years ago, turning it into a pink powder (puff) room. DH is such a sweety to put up with all my pinkness! At the time of the redo there was a thrift store that had opened up not too far from us, and their prices were so cheap! That little store greatly aided my redo. Too bad their prices didn't stay that low. Hope you enjoy the tour!
I got this bathroom light, brand-new, still in the box, from THE thrift store for $2.99.
The mirror and towel hooks came from our local home improvement store.
The medicine cabinet was a thrift store find for $7 ! It was originally gold, and DS #1 sanded and painted it white.
I put this Mary Engelbreit calendar page on the inside of the medicine cabinet door as a reminder to make my days count.
I got the shower valance from the thrift store for 49 cents.
We sanded, painted, and added new pink knobs to our old birch vanity.
I got the little two-drawer cabinet/towel rack from another local home improvement store for $10.
I found my ceramic powder dish at the thrift store and added the rose decal myself.
I searched high and low for a rug that would be the perfect size for this long, narrow spot. Not finding what I wanted, I decided to make my own with instructions from here.
The reverse side of the rug: Notice this fabric is the same as the valance. I found this matching shower curtain on another visit to the thrift store. It had a few tears in it, thus I got it for only 49 cents too! It yielded quite a bit of useful fabric. I'll show other things I've made from it in future posts.
DS put up the beadboard and helped DH and me finish up the redo with the pink paint. I was so happy with the results that I've almost forgotten about the first paint job. I called it Pepto Bismol pink. I woke DH up at 2:00 one morning to tell him I didn't think I could live with it. Being the sweetie he is, he kindly told me not to worry about it, we could repaint.
Well, that's my Pink Saturday contribution for this week. Don't forget to go by Beverly's blog, How Sweet the Sound, for the list of all Pink Saturday participants. I visited Jill's blog, Balliwick Designs, this week and was awed by this beautiful site. And, she's having a Valentine give-away! Be sure to drop by there and tell her I sent you. Don't you just love Valentine season?! It's my favorite time of the year!
Hope you have a happy Pink Saturday!
