Hollywood Regency Bathroom Reveal

Where have I been?....Finishing up my Hollywood Regency master bath remodel!

Remember my Hollywood Regency Bedroom redo HERE

Well, the 30 year old master bathroom wasn't cutting it.....Yep, one thing leads to another!

I was stunned at the price of bathroom vanities.  So, I bought this antique buffet for $200.  I love that it is higher than standard bathroom vanities.  Then I found the perfect silver and green vessel sink $99 and faucet

How about a free used toilet!

What....My friend that owns Adjectives Market opened up a second store that was previously occupied by a design store.  When he had to remove the toilet because it no longer met building codes he asked if I would like it?  Oh my gosh, it is an amazing  Kohler toilet with a great design and a double flush. I love FREE!  Yes, I bleached it first.

Glass shower doors and a blingy row of tiles in the shower upped the glam factor

Here's a little tip......Bathrooms are not remodeled frequently...Over my dead body will I ever redo this one again!  So, no matter how old you are when you do your remodel, you should take into consideration that you may age with this bathroom.  Towel bars can't be used for grab bars, but grab bars can be used for towel bars.  Grab bars have come a long way baby!  All of the bars in this shower are the newest and greatest decorator grab bars from Home Depot.  So, when I need them they will be there.....In the meantime they will hold towels.

I have always used one of these soap dispensers in my shower, $19 from Bed Bath and Beyond.   I hate a shower cluttered with bottles.

This looks like just a mirror, but.....

It is also a medicine cabinet....A big medicine cabinet...How fun is this to peek into someones medicine cabinet lol!

I love this wall shelf, I think it goes with the whole Hollywood regency/ art deco look.  I'm on the look out for some great nick naks for it...Silver...Mercury glass...The fun is in the hunt!

So, there you have it Bathroom done......Check!

So, whats next?  It's 7 weeks until the Polka Dot Flea, the show I started last year....That's keeping me busy!  

If you follow the Polka Dot Flea on Facebook you can see all of the happenings and the amazing vendors we have lined up!

Happy Creating!

Shabby Fabric Easter Wreath

Since I'm hosting my family for Easter dinner I wanted a wreath for my front door

I loved this fabric garland that I made and showed you on a previous post HERE  and thought it would transfer well to a door wreath

I used a wire wreath frame and tied torn fabric strips around it

Then hot glued on styrofoam eggs

And a bunch of bunnies I've had forever......I don't even know where I got them....Maybe an estate sale?

And there you have it, a wreath for my front door....Not great, but it will do!

I'll be busy this weekend preparing for Easter dinner....This is my family's traditional Easter menu, it's the same every year....It never changes. 

Honey spiral cut ham
Cheese potatoes
Caesars salad
Deviled eggs
Green bean casserole
Brown and serve rolls
mustard mayonnaise sauce for the ham

 I always find it interesting what other families prepare for their traditional Easter dinners.   My girlfriend was telling me that she always makes lamb shanks...Eww I say!

.......What's on your Easter dinner menu?

Happy Creating
