Farmhouse Accessories for the Bathroom~ORC

Welcome to week 5 of the One Room Challenge, where we have six weeks to make over
 a room in our home.
Even though my guest bathroom is getting a whole new look, it doesn't mean that I'm buying a whole lot of new stuff.
I'm trying to use a lot of things that I already have.
I plan on hanging this cubby/wall shelf above the toilet and I'll fill it with some vintage goodies.
I'll play around with different arrangements until I find the look I like best. 

I've had this subway art for several years. I still like it a lot and the colors work nicely in the room.
I plan on hanging it above the towel bar.
The other two items are things I'm considering for above the towel hook next to the sink.
 I'll just have to hold things up and see how they look.

I did buy a new striped shower curtain and some gray towels for the room.
Because let's face it, towels and shower curtains can get pretty dingy looking after a while.
I'd better hurry up and take the curtain out of the package and make sure I like it!

Remember the farmhouse style toilet paper holder I showed you last week?
Well, I was having some issues with my computer and didn't get to show you the makeover I gave it.


I didn't like how shiny the metal basket was, so I started the makeover by 
spraying it with gray primer. 
Once that dried, I brushed on metallic acrylic paint.
 I think it looks more like galvanized metal now, which I prefer over the look of the shiny metal. 
It now has more of a farmhouse vibe, reminiscent of a vintage locker basket.

I'm so excited to show you the whole room put together next week!

  5. I love the accessories you plan on using in that room. I can't wait to see it all put up! That was a good idea to make the wire basket look older.
