The mirror in the bath is big, and ugly with the silver coming off in places. If I was not on chemo and more steady on my feet, I would have purchased some molding to frame it out and hide that flaw, but I am not, so I improvised. I purchased a baby glue gun at Goodwill and took some of that ribbon I purchased to cover my fiasco lampshade with (another old post) and glued a strip of ribbon to the damaged part of the mirror to hide it.
I found some pretty containers at Goodwill to hold candles. But even better, I found a Shelia Rock poster of her La Laison photo and fell in love with the couple in the picture! The cande holders were like $2.99 and the poster was $6.99. I think I may paint the frame out in white when the weather is better.
I already had the candles and had purchased the two signs hanging on the wall at Hobby Lobby the day after Xmas, to hide a missing towel holder boo, boo.
I have had the topiaries for years and they came from the Dollar Store.
Isn't this couple, timeless and beautiful embracing at the train station?
Now you can see the purple color on the opposite wall with the Arrow Shirt Company sign on it.
So what is left to do? Eventually re-place the mirror and put up a pretty shower curtain. When Joni Webb did her post on her 10 favorite blog re-dos for 2009, one was of a bathroom where the designer had hung a curtain over her light fixture but could still access the light. I am thinking of trying that also and making it match the shower curtain. First I have to find a curtain rod that will come out far enough from the light fixture to hold the curtain I will make. Got any ideas where I might find an extra deep and short curtain rod????
