Small Bathroom Update! Under $100.

image

I’ve been working on this bathroom since we moved in. It’s primarily my son’s bathroom, but also the guest bathroom. It’s super tiny, so I wanted to add some color in there that would pop out. When we moved in, it had a hideous mirror. It was etched around the edges with a floral design, definitely not something I wanted in my son’s bathroom. Or in general, lol.

I found this gem at Lowe’s for around $30.

image

I also got my shelves at Lowe’s for around $18 a piece. They are 23″ floating shelves. Super easy to install.

image

I mostly got everything else at hobby lobby, on sale of course! That’s just how I roll!

Flowers are a must for me. I have them everywhere. I think they add warmth and color, which are two of my favorite things! These I paid $6.80 for.

image

My son actually picked this out. He’s the happiest little boy you’d ever meet, even nick named smiley on his baseball team, so it was no suprise that he’d like this. 😊😊 This baby cost my a crazy $1.99. I like mixing the silvers and the golds!

image

My son also picked this out. He calls it a dog, I’m pretty sure it’s a horse, but either way it was a bargain at $6.80 as well!

image

Towels I got at Target actually. I believe I spent around $7 for two hand towels, and two face towels.

image

A basket was the first thing I looked for, as I didn’t want guests to have to dig through my cabinets for toilet paper. This was also on sale at hobby lobby for $7.79. It was only 30% off because it’s a “spring item”.  A little more than I wanted to pay, but the color worked!

image

Last but not least, the framed saying I also grabbed at Hobby Lobby for $12.

image

Overall, my bathroom got a nice upgrade for less than $100. I took a very boring, very plain bathroom and added color, depth, and character. I was a little worried that the shelves were gonna make the room look smaller, but it really did the opposite. I absolutely love the way it turned out, and most importantly so does my son!

image

Thankful for weekend projects!!!!

I got my shower curtain prior to moving in, I believe I got it at Kohl’s, for probably less than $20 knowing me. 😊

Fix #2- Stitch Fix box!

image

My 2nd fix arrived! I peeked at this fix, and right off the bat loved the prices! I immediately thought my stylist must have really read my note, I was super exited, especially after my first fix was kind of a bust, as you can read here.

image

I liked my style cards, the items seemed way more my style than the previous fix. My note from my stylist, Denise, was super cut  too. She noted that she looked at my pinterest page, which is great. I really believe she did, too.

image

Prices were also more on point. $142 total is way more my ballpark of what I’m looking to pay.

Market and Spruce, Madrella Slouchy Boyfriend Knit Tank, $38

image

This was the item I was most disappointed about. I originally thought if anything I’d keep this, since it would only cost me an additional $18. But the shirt is huge. Not what I was expecting at all. I could literally keep it as a bathing suit cover up…

image

image

Verdict : Undecided

THML, Brandi Embroidered Skirt, $58

image

This skirt is not at all my style. I’m a little curvy on the bottom for being so short, not to mention I’m not as skinny as I was before becoming a mother, so I don’t find this flattering at all. Skinny tall people can rock these type skirts, that’s just not me.

image

Super unflattering! Verdict : not loving it

Papermoon Pontiac Crossback Knit Tank, $44

image

This shirt I think is super adorable. So my style. Super light weight, breathable, which is good for the Florida weather, plus the detail in the back is cute.

image

Verdict : undecided

Skies Are Blue, Olana Crochet Detail Top,  $48

image

This shirt I really love as well, it fits really well, tight enough on top and bottom but still loose enough to not be skin tight. I love the back. This is probably my favorite item in my fix.

image

Verdict : undecided, only because of price

Romolo, Willa Bar Drop Earrings, $28

image

I hate these earrings. Again, I feel like they are so cheap. You can honestly get better quality jewelry from Walmart than the items I’ve received so far.

Verdict: hate them.

Overall, I think my fix is a 2/5. Love the Papermoon and Skies are Blue tops. But considering to keep these two items I’d be spending an additional $72.00, I just can’t do it. I think that’s insane, personally. Neither one of these are super great quality in my opinion. I’m weighing the option of keeping everything, and seeing if I can’t sell a few items, or returning everything.

I’m really not sure if stitch fix is for me. The fixes as a whole are affordable, but items singularly are not. What’s the chance I stumble upon a 5/5 fix???

My stylist did do a great job this time though, that is one thing I can’t complain about!

Verdict: super undecided on what to do!!!

DIY Wood Trash Can Bin

image

Say hello to my new kitchen trash can home! I’m so excited about this piece. My Dad built this for me, to hold my trash can in my kitchen. We have a dog, who likes to dig in the trash so for the past 4+ years I’ve been staring at my kitchen trash bin on my kitchen counter. #whatadrag. So when I found some plans on pinterest, I sent them to my Dad and said hey, let’s build this!

image

My Dad did all the work. He did alter the plans a little bit, if he wasn’t so secretive I’d share them with you. He made it more like the gal that posted the pin,  as opposed to the original plans from Ana White, which can be found here. With his own little twist!

My Dad opted to put a wood bar inside that stops my front door from falling to the ground, it has a round screwed in removable piece that I can remove and pull the whole thing down, just in case something falls behind there, which is super nice.  (you can see it below pulled up so I could put my front on the ground).

image

This is how it is normally “stopped”  to just tilt out a little bit…

image

I love the way it drops down and stops! I’m so in love with this. I did all the staining and finishing myself! I used Minex English Chestnut, and a satin polyurethane coat. I didn’t want this to be a fancy shiny piece since it’s in my kitchen.

Thank goodness for weekend projects!! 😊😊
