Bathroom in need of a Makeover?

Go from Blah to Spa!

I got an email from one of the decorating catalogs that had lots of inspiring ideas for making over the bath... but I thought, maybe instead of getting a catalogue look, my artsy friends would probably be insterested in making over their bathrooms with creative and artistic handmade touches.

The first place to start would be the shower curtain. This is a great place to add mural sized art to your home at a really low price.  I have some of the hottest and most popular designs on cafepress. One of the best selling ones is my Romantic Ruffles Bathroom Shower Curtain, and my newest shower curtain design is a yellow sunflower on a turquoise and violet background so let's start with a violet and yellow color scheme.

Now for the rest of the bathroom I need a little help from my etsy friends! Let's take a look and see what we can find for pretty soaps, candles, towels, a bathmat, a ceramic soap dish and baskets to brighten up the bathroom with beautiful handmade touches!!!

One of my favorite finds by TheCraftyTwins sold while I was writing this blog, and no wonder! Look how cute these embellished hand towels are! The colorful & whimsical set of 2 cotton terry cloth hand towels 2) celebrate the "Girly Girl" and best of all..they are Machine Washable and Dry-able.(and don't despair because this pair was sold-- contact the seller and she probably can sew up a batch just for you!!!

To keep all your makeup organized, pick up one of my cosmetic zippered pouches! The inside is nylon so you can clean up any spills easily and the outside features a colorful peacock!

I love, love, love the swirled Gustav Klimt design on the this hand made ceramic round drop-in sink (from DonnaYoungSinks)! What a statement that would make in a powder room or bath! 

Finally, no decorating makeover is complete without art! To complement the shower curtain, get an original canvas artwork from the same sunflower series!  This 12x12" canvas comes already wired so you do not have to spend a penny to frame it. It has been varnished for long lasting protection and will give you joy in your bathroom.

I found so many gorgeous violet finds on etsy! Which is your favorite????
