Water Closet???

You know that little room that houses your toilet.....the uhhhh, "water closet". Mine has been ugly and boring for TOO long. So I have been slowly but surely picking up a few thrifty (never cheap) items to spruce it up some. I will take pics when it is all finished. I recently got this shelf from Southern Living at Home (LOVE THAT STUFF) and am ordering this magazine/toilet paper holder soon from a catalog party. Now on to jazzing up the shelf and figuring out a few other unexpected treasures to add to that silly little pointless room. I am thinking a little chandelier would be precious. We'll see.



I got the new bathroom towel hooks for $2.50. That is just a good deal. I made the tassel and the polka dot vase came from Goodwill. I made the little serenity sign from some old scrabble pieces I bought a long time ago at an antique store but did nothing with (another cheap...oh, I mean thrifty, project).

One more thing.....tomorrow is the granite install day!!!!!!!! I am so excited I probably won't be able to sleep. I am a dork like that. Granite really does excite me that much. I just got to say I love my home.

Oh yeah, don't forget the giveaway at Decor to Adore for her 100th post. She is doing a really awesome giveaway. Just post a comment on her page to enter. I can't wait till I get to my 100th post. What a fun tradition.

Oh my gosh, you are going to have a brand new home when I come over this weekend. I am not going to recognize it! I love the stuff from SLAH and I LOVE that vase and those towel holders. (I might have to copy you on that one.) :) Let me know how the granite comes out. I want to see pictures, LOTS OF PICTURES!

I love the towel holder as well. Might have to copy that too:) You know....I know the "water closet" is a bit pointless, but ours is quite used. And to be honest, I think it's one of my favorite rooms in our house. I will post pics of ours:) I think it's my fav b/c it's one of the only rooms I actually had a real decorating idea for! :) Can't wait to see pics of your kitchen soon!

Oh wow! You really brought this together very nicely. I love it when we not only get it cheap...sorry, get it at a thrifty price and then make it look like we paid so much more for it. Great job! Love it!

What an adorable little "water closet." I agree, a little chandelier would be precious! Great idea!

Your bathroom is very cute. I love Southern Living at Home (especially all the new stuff they came out with this year!) and polka dots. The little scrabble tile sign is very sweet, too. :)
