So, you have been super patient with me and I really appreciate it.

Below is the awful before picture of my little bathroom nook

I know, right...pretty sick

Keep in mind that this place is super vintage and due to it being a rental, I can't do much about the fixtures and wall color.

But after some TLC, a bottle of bleach, new shower head, and few yards of fabric....


I decided to use a curtain and valance to bring in more colors and create the illusion of taller ceilings.

We added bamboo matchstick shades from BIGLOTS!!!! for $7 each
Nothing like a little texture.
My bff Emmicia gave me the F hook from Anthropologie and I finally have a place to hang it.

The mirror over the sink is really tall and held in place with plastic brackets. I used a spring tension rod to add a straight valance to cover the top of the mirror. It really softens the area over the sink.

are the fabrics I used and both are by Waverly ships super fast and I had great experience with them while price hunting.

Sooo....what do you think?

Sarah, this is absolutely adorable. I love the valences! I'm not going to lie, I will probably steal some of your ideas when I am decorating my new place and will most likely be asking you for help!! :) Show me more!!!
