Back in July (holy cow) I mentioned I was wanting to make some small changes to our master bath. Add shades and drapes behind the tub and replace the ugly towel bar with some art. Well, it’s now December and I’ve finally gotten to it!
The changes weren’t major, but they made a HUGE difference. Here’s what it looked like before. Plain window and the dreaded towel bar. I don’t know why those bars drive me so bonkers, but they do.
WINDOWS – I added the same bamboo roman shade from Blinds.com that I have throughout the rest of the house. I really do love these shades, and the natural color does so much to warm up the space. I think bamboo shades are a lot like a nude pump. They go with EVERYTHING.

I decided to hang it several inches above so the window would look larger, and so that I wouldn’t loose any of the natural light that’s so great for putting on my makeup. The curtains were hung on a DIY curtain rod I made out of electrical conduit. Again, hung high to make the window appear larger.
ART – In place of the towel bar I hung a large print of the California coast I took while Mike and I were vacationing a few years back. I think this is near Carmel. I had it printed off through SnapBox on their paper prints and it turned out gorgeous! I always worry about having a photo blown up to a large scale, thinking it will look distorted, but it couldn’t have more pleased. The colors are amazing and everything is so crisp. Printing off one of your own images is so much cheaper than purchasing art prints, and it’s personal.

So… do you guys still think I’m crazy for adding curtains behind the tub or are you now converted?? And who else is ditching their towel bars?
I rest my case 😉

I have the shades in my kitchen and love them! I want them for our living room next. Your print above the tub is gorgeous! I need to start taking better shots from our vacations so I have something to hang in all my empty frames :/
They truly are the best blinds! When I was snapping this picture I never intended for it to be hanging up, but it totally worked out. Now I just need to talk my husband into another vacation so I can take more photos 😉
Hi, I’m Shelley! My belief is that with a little creativity and elbow grease, you can make your home look like a million bucks without spending it.
I have always been about making what you have work and thus created a guest room with our leftover furnishings. Sure, the room wasn’t my favorite space, but it worked. Things went down the tubes when the last working dresser drawer broke and the kids couldn’t safely access their crafting materials without the drawers falling…
Home Tours are always so fun to put together. If you have wandered over here from Peonies on Pleasant’s tour, welcome, I am so happy to have you! I realized it has been a while since our master bedroom has been shared on the blog so I thought this would be a great time to…
I’ve got a bad case of PADD (Project ADD). I can’t seem to focus on one project at a time. I just keep bouncing around, aimlessly. Started in on Izzy’s room makeover, but haven’t done anything since the wall decals. I could have been making her bed pillows, but haven’t. I moved the mirror…
There are a couple of designers I’ve been really into lately, and I think you’ll like them too. I pretty much live under a rock though, so you’ve probably already found them YEARS ago 😉 BLACKBAND DESIGN They have a big portfolio with lots of pretty. They’re on the California coast so there is a…
UPDATED: It has been a long time since I first made this mirror and I wanted to share some updated photos of where it has lived over the past few years! Currently it is in our breakfast room off the kitchen in our new house. And prior, it was in the hallway of our rental…
Who else is still trying to wrap their head around it being June? I just don’t understand how we’re already here! Earlier in May I finally was able to put up our new kitchen island pendants, and you guys, they are everything I was hoping they would be. Remember this all started when we added…
