White Wednesday: My (Mostly) White Bath

Today I thought I would join Kathleen at Faded Charm for her White Wednesday Blog Event!



Our upstairs bathroom is mostly white....there are some blue walls above the beadboard wainscoting
And some blue mosaic tiles on the floor......
I wanted the bathroom to have a relaxing, spa-like feel....so I used mostly white in the decor, but I also wanted it to look vintage and cottage/shabby. I  lightly spray painted this light green metal floral bucket with white paint and then added a large bunch of silk roses that I bought for $1 each.

The white shower curtain is from Crate & Barrel and has a pretty rectangular block texture. The fleur-de-lis curtain hooks are from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
This white metal towel stand displays two pretty vintage guest towels that were a recent purchase.
My mother-in-law bought this, I think it was at a rummage sale, but then decided she couldn't use it and it made it's way into my house. The white paint is chippy and it's sort of rusty, but I left it as is because I think it looks better that way!
A white cutwork embroidery roller shade for the window.
(This picture is crooked, not the shade! LOL!)  

Thanks for joining me!

Beautiful blog - beautiful house! Vegas is such a "new" town (1950's), that I miss the character of the older places...AND the green in the gardens! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
