Bathroom Touch Up!

We have struggled with this bathroom for a while now.  I wanted to paint it gray, but MR.P wanted it to stay red.  Then I didn't want a UGA bathroom (black and red) and he thought the red brought out the living room.  So I let him win :)  Except not about the UGA bathroom.  While on our trip getting this table we stumbled upon these stars.  I really love stars.  I need to find something else that helps me get my style across.  But for now, these work! 

For Christmas my mom gave me those cute white knobs.  They were supposed to be to hang the baskets, but like I said in yesterdays post, we couldn't find the studs in the wall to make sure it was sturdy.  So we used them here!  It definitely helps the bathroom have a little more character than just plain red.  One day I would like to paint it gray.  We'll see what MR.P says!

I am showing you this post to say that updating a room doesn't have to cost an arm and leg.  I reused the basket from the mudroom change so that was free (since I bought them a while ago).  Then the knobs were a gift, so again, free for me.  The stars were $4 each.  So that was $12 total in giving this bathroom a cute, updated look.  As you already know, I am a firm believer in using what you already have and adding some inexpensive touches to make your home more welcoming.  Now, everytime I see this room it makes me smile.

don't they say "the devil is in the details?" It's those details that makes a difference!
