First, quick shout out to my incredible parents. Today is their 35th wedding anniversary!
Anyways, I have been watching a lot of organization videos on YouTube lately, and was rather suddenly struck with the strong desire to implement a slight overhaul to my master bathroom. Nothing really intense. It just really needed a good deep clean, reorganization, and some new accessories. Although, budget and time constraints aside, I would LOVE to rip the whole bathroom apart and start from scratch. Everything in that room is boring builder basic…white walls, white cultured marble counter/sink, honey oak vanity, boring light fixture, etc. But I just really do not have time for a huge project right now, so the focus will be on organization and refreshing the look with a few accessories.
I went to Target last night and picked up some items for the project. For some reason I was drawn to deep greens and browns. Would like to eventually incorporate some teals as well, to lighten the scheme. But the rest of the bathroom is so light (walls, counters, cabinets), that I think the deeper colors help give it some pizzazz.
We got two of these…One for cotton swabs, and one for my round cotton makeup remover pads.
We thought about getting a fancier waste basket, but in the end we went for something more durable and practical and easy to clean, so we got this frosted plastic model. I thought the oil rubbed bronze base was a nice touch.
We also got an oil rubbed bronze tissue box cover. I can’t seem to find a picture of it on Target’s website. It’s pretty basic, but coordinates with everything else. It’s somewhat similar to the one in this photo, from Bed Bath & Beyond:
I wanted to get some new towels to go with our new look, so we got a few new sets of Threshold towels in the “Moss Lane” color. Love them! The color is much more beautiful in person.
I had intended to get a couple of bath rugs as well, but nothing really struck my fancy. I don’t want a solid, but I also don’t want a pattern that is too busy. It has to be just right, so I decided to wait and look around. We need one for the water closet (where our walk-in shower and toilet are) and one for the vanity/tub area. I would also like to get a few things for the walls, and maybe even a new light fixture or two.
We completely overhauled the linen closet and bathroom drawers. I used a lot of the plastic bins and baskets that I already had on hand. But we also bought a few larger fabric storage bins. So now I have bins for lotions, tooth/oral care, misc skincare, first aid, perfumes/body sprays, etc. The largest bin has all of our shower stuff (extra shampoos, conditioners, hair products, shower gels, and shaving stuff). We also tried to get a drawer organizer for our one bathroom drawer, but that drawer is such a weird size, it didn’t fit. The drawer is huge, but almost ridiculously shallow, so only things that are small or really flat can fit.
We still have a ways to go but it’s so nice to have started! I will keep you posted with our progress on this mini-makeover.
