After painting my half bath, it was time to take the old pictures down and change it up. I decided to go with a more coastal cottage look. Casual and relaxed is my new outlook and that led me to making my shelves from the old fence. These two little shelves couldn't be simpler. I just free handed the side shape on one piece of wood and then cut it with the jig-saw and copied it 3 more times.
I love this little bird cage candle holder I found at a thrift store. I beached it up a bit with some turquoise paint and added a little $1.00 flickering tea lite from Dollar Tree. It makes a perfect night lite.
I mixed a couple of shades of paint together to get the right tone on tone to stencil my design on the wall with my Cutting Edge Stencil that I reviewed a couple of months ago. You can see that post here.
You can see in the photo I used the pointed end of the picket to make the top of the shelf. Basically I just cut the wood to build a box on 4 sides and then topped with another picket . I drilled holes in the back and just slid it on the nails to hang. I painted them with a dry brush technique by just dipping my brush in white and barely swiping it on.
This is a very small room. Just big enough for the toilet and sink. I added a new scented bouquet of dried branches, sticks, etc to freshen up this corner.I've had this 3 tiered bamboo basket shelf for a number of years and it's the perfect size to fit that tiny space between the toilet and sink. It's so handy too.
I hope you enjoyed my little makeover. I'd love reading your comments and would love to know what you think.
