We had a busy night last night and didn’t finish ANY of the projects we had planned.  So, in the meantime, I thought I would share with you some quirky little things that we are currently loving.  Enjoy!

Next Comes The Bathroom and Master Bedroom

Here’s the bedroom.  It’s pretty small, but turned out well.  We would like to change these cutains in time (just like the rest of the house), but they can wait until last.  I think it turned out pretty cozy.  What do you think?
This is the bed.  Matching side tables and lamps.

This is the dresser facing the bed. An old full length miror stands against the wall and an Asian keepsake box sits on the floor next to it.The dresser is vintage from when my mom was a little girl. She used the room set and then I did when I was little. The black strips are removable, and flip over to change colors. We painted one side of each black.

The hand is a vintage glove mold, the box is an old Kodak box, which we keep our momentos in. The mirror is an antique medicine cabinet, which we painted black and added a chendelier crystal for a pull.

The view from the door into the tiny bathroom. Its small but we managed to fit all of our things in there.  It feels really bright and spa-ish because of the light blue walls and white curtains.  We added a blue rug and blue curtain hooks.

The little shelf we hung across from the toilet with pretty perfume bottles on it. The only little "extra" that fits into the space!

Here’s the little bity bathroom.  Not a lot to tell, but we did manage to fit all of our things into the small space, and it even turned out pretty!
