Spring is in the air so it's a good time to make some changes around the house. One of my favorite rooms in our home is our first floor powder room. It's funny because it started out as one of my least favorite rooms. But a few years ago I embraced the white and gray tile and the grayish formica vanity. I stopped focusing on how much I disliked it and instead used it as a jumping off point to create a space using my favorite color combination of blue, bronze, cream and gray.
This time around the changes I made are subtle, but just enough to make it feel fresh to me.
It started by me finding these damask hand towels at Home Goods for $2.99 each. They picked up on the damask wallpaper that I love in this bathroom. I also loved the stripe at the bottom of the hand towels. It gives these towels both a masculine and feminine feel.
Then using my Silhouette machine, I transformed my plain white trash can and tissue box holder. I used a damask design and cut it out on the machine. To apply it I use clear contact paper which is a much more cost effective method of applying vinyl. In minutes I completely changed the look of these accessories.
I actually used two different damask designs...one for the trash can and one for this tissue box holder. It makes the accessories feel a bit more special.
It's funny how new hand towels and a little DIY project can make a space feel fresh and new.
How about you? How have you been refreshing your spaces for Spring?
