The Good, the Plaid, and the Ugly

There's actually nothing good about this bathroom. But there is a whole lot of plaid and whole lot of ugly.

This is what the spare bathroom looked like when I moved in. Holy Moly. I don't know what part is my favorite. Perhaps the plaid shower curtain with the matching curtain hangers? Or the knotty pine wood thing on the wall that's displaying a beautiful collection of NOTHING. Or maybe the bleached towel.. So hard to choose! Sadly this is the only picture I have to remember how awesomely bad this bathroom was.

Here's what it looked like up until today:

Much better. I painted the walls Benjamin Moore's Cape May Cobblestone. Added the Andy Warhol picture and put up the gray shower curtain. But it was still a little bare. So I started perusing the blog world and found this bathroom:

And I went on the hunt for some glass shelves. Originally I thought of some plain wood floating shelves but I really liked the glass look. I especially liked these babies from Pottery Barn:

Buut they are $39 each and I wanted two. I don't think J would have been very happy with me if I bought them. So I figured target would have something similar to these. And oh boy did they.

That's pretty close! They were only $20 each!  And I like the brushed-nickel finish better anyways.

So where did the Andy Warhol picture go? Why here, of course.

Next up: Framing the mirror. So stay tuned for the next installment of The Good, the Plaid, and the Ugly.
