DIY 1/2 bath re-do (twice)

Enchantress #1 here, as in I'm the oldest, but a girl can dream right?! :) Today I'm participating in Kimba's DIY par-tay.
Here are some pictures of one of my 1/2 baths that had been begging attention. The wallpaper stripping and painting was done about 7 months ago. I spray painted the mirror and light fixtures but didn't love them. They were originally gold.
I also didn't do much with the walls at the time. I think I was worn out from the stripping (of wallpaper that is) and painting.

Here are a couple shots of the process of painting/stripping fruit wall paper from the original home owner's decor.


This was gold & the glass fixtures are new. I don't LOVE them per say, but they are much better then the originals.

Enter Enchantress #2 who is currently here visiting me in Kansas City. She graciously helped me add some wall bling and burlap window treatments to add to the tropical feel of my already beached out home. I also spray painted over my old paint job with some oil rubbed bronze. I like it a lot better.



Everything on this wall was stuff I had laying around my casa. We framed some Amy Butler scrapbook paper. I bought a set of blue and green hand towels to match the framed "art" and rotate out. I'm sure with my 3 boys that will happen often.


Thanks for stopping by!

Well done ladies! The fixture looks great bronze and I love the shelf with the shells in the jar on top...very cute paired with the framed paper.
Did you just tack the burlap to the wall? What an easy, effective, and adorable fix.

This is too cute :) I love when decorating comes as easily as picking stuff up from around the house and putting it someplace new.
