I think I’ve mentioned a million times now how this whole place was painting in the one shade, even bathtubs, toilet paper holders, toilets, door knobs etc…

Our new toilet, empty, boring, claustrophobic

I also lamented about how sad our toilet was…

And the source of inspiration:

That collection on those shelves would have easily cost $350-400 and that is $350-400 I don’t have to spend just to make a really small space prettier… when we have other needs.

But I loved how reds and oranges and pinks were used to “jewel” up the space.

We had friends over on the weekend and they were wowed by what I’d done to the restroom, which is kinda surprising since the guy that noticed is normally pretty… duh about design etc.

This is how mine looks right now:
I think I spent $70 on this, including the Ikea RÖNNSKÄR wall shelving, frames from thrift stores and repainted in some leftover black gloss, and the two bars of soap, each costing me $14.95. The rest I kinda went picking from around the house.

I try not to keep too many magazines so I tear out the sheets. But I like keeping most of the covers since so much work has gone into making them pretty… I thought to hang them up in our restroom, selecting those with the same shades.

As collectors know, a collection is never complete/done. Collections evolve, change and develop… so this isn’t “The End” of the Restroom.
