I haven’t been around for a while, but it is good to be back. I’ve got lots of fun new projects on my list of ‘to dos’ that I can’t wait to get to. Soon after we moved into our new home I immediately got to work at making our space feel like us. Some things I’m taking a bit more time on, but there were two spaces I wanted to fill up and design quick. They were the space behind our toilet and the wall between my kids room and the hallway. Both spaces were blank slates.
The way that our bathroom is set up is a bit awkward. I hope to some day knock out a wall to make it a grand space, but for now it is working just fine. But because the vanity and sink are in a separate area, it didn’t allow for any accessible storage for toilet paper, towels, etc. Here is the before (try not to cringe, cause the blue toilet seat was ‘awesome!’)
So bad right?! And the millions of towel racks that the previous owners had was almost comical. And here is the after so far…
I have to say, this shelf styling really allowed for a great place to feature some really special photos of our family without adding clutter to the family room. It also allowed me to disguise the thermostat and door bell placement, which is so randomly placed.
We are continuing to make progress on little bits and pieces in our home and you can follow along with the tag “New Home“. I’ll continue to share as things get completed.
You did an amazing job styling your shelves. I love how you made your thermostat just disappear. Love it all!
I love these shelves in the bathroom – where did you get them?
They are from Ikea… Super reasonable and really sturdy when you use anchors with the screws!
Where did you get the shelves for the hallway wall? I love what you did! I don't think I've seen shelves with a lip on them like that…
Lovely, lovely round-up! I was too busy finishing up the closet that I wasn't able to decorate that much for V day! I'm sure yours was a happy one! Go to my blog
