My Decorated Bathtub Area

Click to see a larger version of the photo.
I thought I'd share my new place to relax.  Finishing up this project has been keeping me out of my craft room.  Awhile back I posted a photo of this area around my bathtub which I had just finished painting.  I was trying to figure out how to decorate this mirror - I finally finished everything.

The mirror was one we took out of another bathroom and I thought it would be a great piece for behind the bathtub, but not plain.  Some people were kind enough to make some wonderful suggestions.  One of the things mentioned was swirls, and another thing mentioned was a frame.  I was originally going to try to add some words as well - but then I found this wonderful textured glass looking privacy film for a window.  I cut it down to size and put it on my mirror.  I just love it!

I was tickled to find the wreath on sale at Michael's for $5.  The candles are the fake LED kind and are from Target.


I put together this vase for a finishing touch.  I purchased the flowers on sale, but I'm on a tight budget and couldn't get a new vase too.  I had this plain vase on hand - it is fat and I had envisioned a tall skinny vase instead, but I decided to jazz this one up a bit and make the most of it.  I happened to have some raffia laying around and so I used it.  Then I just used some Scor Tape to attach some ribbon in kind of a fun design.  I think it turned out a lot more fun than the plain vase.

I am just on such a kick lately with my house.  Cleaning, decorating, organizing, etc.  I have accomplished a lot and it feels so good to feel like many rooms are completely done now.  I don't have a ton of money to spend, so I can't replace larger things, but I can do little projects and make the most of what I've got.  
 
A craft room tour video will be coming very soon :)

Thanks for stopping by.

You're a great decorator! It really looks like a spa!

Love what you did with this bathroom. I am in the process of totally gutting two of my bathrooms and it is going to be tramatic! I am on a budget too, one that my husband put me on. What I could have and what I am getting are two different things but it will be better than what I have at the moment. I see the simple subtle things that you have done and I see that you can do a lot with a good imagination! I am up to my ears in scrapping wall paper at the moment...Yuck! But it will save me a couple hundred bucks to do it myself! You did a magnificent job!
