Bathroom Mini-Renovation {Part 3: DIY Shower Storage}

Let me preface everything I am about to say with the simple unwavering truth that I love claw foot tubs. I think they are beautiful, add great character to a bathroom and I especially love old cast iron tubs when they’re in the homes they were meant for. With all that said, having a claw foot tub doubling as the only shower in our home can be a bit of a pain. There’s no storage, sometimes being encircled by shower curtains can create a bit of claustrophobia (akin to the E.T. quarantine scene), and the tub itself takes up a lot more space than a conventional shower stall, space that would be nice to have in our 6′ x 6′ bathroom. But, on the small budget set for this mini-reno, buying a ready made storage solution wasn’t an option and for a few reasons, not very practical.  So we quickly (about an hour) and cheaply ($18) made a storage solution for our showering supplies.

Bathroom Mini-Renovation {Part 2: The Window}

The crusade to update the bathroom continues! Flooring and wall treatments are in the works, but step one for the window is complete.  I’m excited to share an awesome idea from Ashley at 7th House on the Left that can create privacy for any window. As with most projects, there’s usually a balance between time and money. You can pay a lot and get it done quickly, or you can take the cheaper route and spend more time. This DIY project was definitely the latter.

A serving tray {from doilies to art deco}

I found this cute boudoir tray at my favorite consignment shop a few weeks ago and was instantly drawn to its classic style. I’ve wanted a serving tray for some time, so I decided to pick this one up and give it  a few updates.

Banana Walnut Pancakes {100% whole wheat}

I am continually on the hunt for a pancake recipe that uses whole wheat flour without turning out pancakes that have the consistency of an old dish sponge. This recipe is the best I’ve found and after making a few minor tweaks, these were the best 100% whole wheat pancakes I’ve eaten.

Framed Art Gallery Wall

One of the benefits of organizing my craft space, an ordeal chronicled in Hoarder to Order, was rediscovering a lot of prints and frames that I had been squirreling away. Once I realized how much art I had just lying around I decided it was time to finally tackle a project that had sort of intimidated me, a framed art collage.
