Pink Saturday - The Bathroom Edition


Welcome to my second Pink Saturday, graciously hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The Sound. There are a lot of participants and it does take a while to get to everyone. Oh, how it is worth it, though. Thank you all so much who visited and commented during my inaugural Pink Saturday last week. I'm meeting so many lovely, talented ladies. It truly has been a great joy for me.


I've harped quite a bit on my bathrooms this week. Personally, I'm ready to move on to other subjects. But since you've spent so much time in this little room with me the past few days, I thought this might be a good place for us to end the week.

For those who've been following my bathroom progress, you may have noticed it used to have a Seashells By The Seashore kind of theme before. That is long gone.

Now it's all coming up roses. Here are a few of the things that surround the sink table that I built .


I bought this framed rose print on eBay.


I think I bought this trio at Hobby Lobby. I originally thought they'd be good to hang washcloths on. But it turns out they're not real sturdy. I think they'd look sweet with a pearl necklace or a heart shaped sachet or something hanging from the hooks. What do you think?

Two things every room of a house should have: a clock and a box of tissues. I inherited this clock when my great aunt passed away. Someday I'll have to show you what it looked like when I first got it. It's come a long way, baby!

I purchased this little cart on eBay when I built the sink table. I wanted something pretty to store our "essentials" under the sink, close to the toilet. It has just the tiniest little pink bow. What I really love about it is the eyelet. I'm a sucker for eyelet.

Yet another eBay find. This adorable set of towels came from a mother/daughter pair of sellers. Sure wish I could remember who they were. I'd love to buy more from them.

There's a lot more I could share. But I decided to keep it simple today with just a few pictures because I really do feel like I'm beating this poor bath horse.

Thank you for stopping by. Now please, come on out of the commode. Let's head on over to Beverly's so we can see all the other pink goodies our friends are sharing today.

cait said...

Wow, I really love all the accessories in your bathroom. I think a sachet or two would look really pretty hanging from the trio of hooks.

You know, I would never think to have a clock in the bathroom, but it makes a lot of sense. The one you have is so elegant.

Happy Pink Saturday!!

Happy PS. I really like those little signs w/hooks. Very cute.

The pic I posted is in CA. From my backyard and I remember feeling such a sadness that all those fires were burning (yet again) but it's so hard to look away from a view such as that sun. I like to think that the pink ring was that great Someone up above trying to pass a sign that everything would be alright. kwim?
Enjoy your day!

Kim
I have been reading all of your posts from top to bottom.
I have felt your hurt from your daughter, the guilt from your accident and the wonderful craftsladyship ( a new word?) that you have shared with us.
I will keep you close by all the way over here.
I have 7 minutes left to wish you a Happy Pink Saturday & thanks so much for visiting me.

Nikki via The Scarlett Rose Garden said...

WOW. I bow to you oh master of the power tools! What a woman!!!
The bathroom looks FAB. I love that pink tile, lucky!
Amazing difference.
I was cracking up at the beadboard ceiling with liquid nails. I did that with chair railing once, lol...

BTW, the recipe I always heard for ceilings is one gallon of white paint to one cup of wall color~

The sink and skirt look great. The new faucet it SO worth it, so much easier for the kiddos to use.

The clock is gorgeous, I wanna see the before!

And finally, I adore the pics of you two hugging and working together!
Thanks for visiting today!

Hi Kim...

Happy PINKness day!!! Your bathroom looks wonderful!

I love those towels you bought on eBAY. A tip to finding the seller, since you would love to buy more from them: check your feedback - if you left feedback for them or they left feedback for you...it's the quickest and easiest way to locate them.

~Blessings,
Jan
