ONE ROOM CHALLENGE | WEEK four
All the Pretty Antlers
Okay a little bit of progress this week. I didn't quite get everything done that I would have liked. I actually almost didn't have a post for you this morning. How is it Wednesday already?! Anyhow...let's start the tour, shall we?
Yay for hand towels! Believe it or not, we had no hand towel holder in here. I had all the towel bars removed when I first painted the walls from that lavender-blue color. Eek.
With the new mirror in place, there wasn't much room. Fortunately this fun towel ring from Urban Outfitters fit the bill perfectly. It's more petite than you realize from the pictures online, which worked out just fine for me.
Next up? I hung these lovely set of antlers courtesy of Wayfair. I heart them. These are one of my top three favorite things in the room. And a pretty reasonable price if you're buying them. So adorable. BTW they're made of resin, so no animals were hurt for the sake of my bathroom ;)
Now...for my aforementioned addition to the towel hooks: these vintage-looking "His and Hers" labels. I originally spotted them on Jennifer's bathroom makeover and just had to have them. Unfortunately, I don't think they work here. The reason? They are pretty much the same width as the bow hooks. I think they need to be wider. Sigh. What do you guys think? Yay or nay?
This week was a great mail week. Some fun new accessories arrived! New wooden toothbrushes, a fab new soap dish and BLACK soap from France. Why hello there, you pretty thing, you! The scent is so strong and pure, like only French soap has. And speaking of French scents. The celebrity of candles, a black Baies. Big splurge here, but luckily I was able to use a gift card that we had lying around and almost forgot about. Pretty excited that I didn't have to slap down any dolla-dolla bills.
This pretty little gem of a terrarium arrived as well. I love the sculptural element it adds.
An update on the rug front. So far the vote is overwhelmingly in favor of the vintage rug. This makes me secretly happy. I really hope it works. I think it will. Oh and I tried negotiating for this rug, per Christine's suggestion, but the seller wasn't having it.
I also spotted this guy the other day. I definitely think it could be a contender. I like it better than the Ikea one from last week. Thoughts? Hmmm, I still might like my vintage rug better...
Next week? I need to stop procrastinating and start on the gallery wall. Oh and I have a little project I've been working on. I'm creating a display for a collection I have been working on for more than ten years. Way to leave you with a cliffhanger right? ;)
