shelf for the master bathroom

This is another one of those long awaited items I finally ticked off of my to do list!

The wall above our tub has had a few things going on over the last four years, but nothing permanent.
Finally, I put up a shelf like I've been wanting!

The pictures from Monday show a different shelf.
By the time I was done painting it and distressing it, I just knew it didn't feel right.

Fortunately, I had this one that was previously in the family room, and needed a new home.
It fits the space great!

I added in some bath essentials, and kept it relatively simple.

The only element missing now is a mirror above the shelf.  I'd like to find a vintage etched one that is sort of horizontal in shape- nothing too tall or large.

I was also able to shop a few items from my space! :)

I loved this little faded blue dish from the time I got it.

...and the basket that now holds these:

I'm having so much fun getting some things done around the house!

The little vanity that I'm working on is coming along beautifully.  I started on the chair last night and a pretty, fancy mirror I picked up.
More soon!

I also was able to invest in a new camera, (happy birthday to meeee!) and am having a blast playing with it.
Here's some shots that I am loving...

I picked up this vintage shaving mug the other day, and it's a keeper.  I have another super cool one that I will be selling soon, more pics later...
This one looks like something you'd see in Rachel Ashwell's decor!

my beautiful man, sleeping.  Love this.

Anyway, I am super excited about the possibilities this will offer, and improving my skills!
Maybe someday I will be as talented as this girl!
Have a great Thursday Friends!
