Master Bathroom Update

While Sewing 101 has been happening, I've been working hard to accomplish some things on my to-do list that had been there way too long.

For all you new readers, I recently graduated last spring, and with school finally finished, and my work load reduced, it was time to attack that list.  Of course, I keep finding fun new projects all over the craft blog circuit so I don't think I'll ever completely finish that list!  I wanted to show off how my bathroom came together and give you some links to the tutorials that helped me complete my project.

Before:

After:


The master bath in our home has been rather sterile and utilitarian, until now:

The new art was made courtesy of Anne at Decco Mod's Spa Art Tutorial, which she created for SYTYC, AND courtesy of Bee In Our Bonnet who included 2 12x12 artists canvases in a fabulous giveaway I won.  I'll show you what I did with the other canvas in my laundry room in a later post. 





The Inch by Inch box and photo holder I found tucked away in my craft stuff for some reason.  They were perfect for the little floating shelf.  I made a bunch of laminated quote cards to swap out from some of my favorite poets.

I uploaded a printable pdf  HERE if you want to make your own laminated quotes...I'll share the how-to soon.  When you go to Scribe ID, be sure to use the tool bar on the page itself, not the pop-up one.  Also, to print full-size, download first and print through adobe reader.  I promise the font looks fine when you print it... for some reason it doesn't show up well on the site.   

This fabric basket was made from a tutorial by Ayumills at the Pink Penguin.  I made the larger size, with dimensions found in her FAQ section.  It was just right to hold two rolls of toilet paper. 

I am so happy with how this little project came together.

I love the fabric basket! Those colors speak to me...even though I don't have them in my home. LOL Isn't that weird..but I would SOOO carry a purse that looked like that. :)

And the idea of the interchangeable quotes is pretty cool too!

Love all the little touches you did, they look great! I have seen that fabric basket over at the pink penguin before, think it is one I need to put on my To-Sew list.

The difference is in the details, Chris and it looks great. I love your quote idea...thanks for the printable...now if only my printer was working. I LOVE the little bag that you made for the toilet paper. I'm going to die from all the projects that I keep adding to my list. Anyhow, just stopping in to say hello to a dear friend! :)

Hugs,
