From Bleah.. to BAM!

If you follow me on social media, you may have seen that I gave my tiny little bathroom a makeover. I just added the final touches and then thought I would write a blog about the process.

I live in a very charming apartment building in #DowntownOrangeville. My landlord told me that it was built in 1946, and still has A LOT of the original features (which I LOVE, when I came to look at the apartment 3 or 4 years ago, I was knew right away that I wanted to live in it.) It took me a really long time to do anything to my bathroom, cause it involved a lot of prep work that I

1. Didn't want to do

2. Didn't know how to do

so I just lived with it even though I know how beautiful it could be.


There were a lot of people before me who just threw some paint up on the walls and didn't even take into account the GORGEOUS original subway tile!! This past Spring I couldn't just live with it anymore and I hired my AMAZING painter to work his magic.


Right? SOO much better!


Lucky for me I already love black and white decor so this bathroom was built for me! (well these subway tiles are more of an ivory than a white but still LOVE them.)

I picked #MountainPeakWhite OC-121 by #BenjaminMoore because it's an ivory-white and it's perfection!


Now that I had a freshly painted bathroom, I had to start decorating it. I really LOVE the Mid-Century / Navajo / Boho style so decided to go in that direction. If you don't know this about me already I love thrifting and vintage items. I found these brass donkeys, carved wood pot and box all at a thrift store. I lucked out at #Fabricland and found that stunning fabric for the shower curtain and found a Mustard (#gustard - gold and mustard combined) bathmat at #Homesense.


Since I have an extremely talented Mom, she was able to make me my custom shower curtain! Which is amazing cause I wanted it to be a little longer than your standard shower curtain. (also that little succulent baby is one that I propagated eep!) :-)

And there you have it! My adorable 1940's (very tiny) bathroom looks like a million bucks, but I obviously is not worth that! I love decorating with thrifted items where I can

1. because I LOVE vintage pieces

2. less waste

3. it's all about adding character
