And the view from our bedroom window!
And I had to share some exciting news with you! We made our first purchase toward refinishing the basement! We got tile for the bathroom and laundry room at Lowe's. We went in just to see how much things were going to cost us. And then we saw this really nice beige tile just like what we were looking for on sale for a bargain! We only got two boxes the first night and then hubby went back and got these:
Now to share a really easy project that I think totally finishes the bathroom! And it was free! First, I started with a Carnival Cruises cup. We had a ton of them from the honeymoon and I really like the shape of them.
I took this little cutie down to the spray paint station and put a coat of the Krylon White I had left from another project on there.
The logo was SO hard to cover. and I am really impatient. But another few coats and a couple of days of drying and this is what I got.
I looove the little knob detail at the base! It was driving me batty that you could still see the logo through it though. I am not okay with this. This is supposed to look classy! So I took some hemp (jute...whatever you want to call it)
And started wrapping it at the knob, securing it every few inches with a bead of hot glue. (this part was very tedious but so worth it in the end!)
The I took the grass that was formerly in the bottle and folded the wire stems (I was too lazy to find wire cutters)
And here it is in its new home!
It is so perfect for the space!
Who knew that a cup, some grassy stuff, spray paint and a little jute could turn out so cute!
Sigh. Its just what the room needed. I think I may be done in there for a while! I just love the way that the jute both covers the logo and also ties it in with the towels. And the best part....had I payed for the supplies it still would have only been about $8! You couldn't buy something that looks the same as this for anywhere near that amount! I love love LOVE it!
