Is there anything more relaxing than sitting in a hot bath with a glass of red wine and a good book?
My tub looks out onto the porch. You can see the bistro set and hanging planter through the shutters.
I saw this idea at a shop last Christmas, but have since seen it on Pinterest...putting strips of fabric or printed material in clear ornaments. I went through some things of my grandparents and found some old bills. My grandfather kept meticulous records! I used them to make these ornaments, spray painted the caps white and used old strips of fabric to hang.
It is safe to say, that if I built this house, I would not have put carpet in the bathroom...on the to-do list that is tucked in a drawer somewhere...My husband just finished putting up sheet rock behind the medicine table. An unused door was in the space.
One of my favorite scents is that of evergreens...I tucked them in everywhere and put Balsam fir candles all over at Christmastime.
The old board is a salvage piece from a historical home in Charleston, SC. I use it across the tub to hold my things. I think an old shutter would be cool!
I purchased this old hospital table for ten bucks...what a deal! The 'tree' candles and pinecone candles were left over from Christmas' past.
The driftwood tree was an 'after Christmas' sale last year. Lights came from Restoration Hardware.
This is my little space and usually becomes a dumping ground...drives my husband crazy. I'll add that to my New Year's resolutions...the discipline to keep it neat!
