Ch-ch-ch-changes in the bathroom

Why the David Bowie reference?
Well, we changed the bathroom mirror. Again.
You might remember that this was the mirror that came with the house when we moved in:

Recently, I posted about this mirror that we bought from Home Depot, which I liked, but the more I stared at it, the more I started thinking that it wasn't right for this space.

So, we returned it and found mirror number 3 which I am happy to say I am loving:

This one is from Home Goods and cost the exact same price as the Home Depot one.

I think it makes more of a statement and the rustic finish matches the rest of the house.

Here's one more look at the mirror evolution:


So, the other change hasn't been done yet but there was something about the slat blinds that was bothering me. 
They seemed like they were too overwhelming for the window.

So, the plan is to return the blinds and make a roman shade which should be more fitting for the window.
Here's a swatch of the fabric I am planning to use:

I found the fabric at Calico Corners but the price per yard was way more than I was willing to pay.

So, I googled the name and found it on Etsy for about $15 per yard 
(less than half the cost of Calico Corners)! 
I love a good deal.

Designer Home Decor Fabric - Braemore "Bethe" in Pearl - 1 yard

I'll share pictures and a tutorial on how to make the shade as soon as it is complete.

Enjoy the weekend!

  1. Ooh I love that third mirror and the fabric! Calico Corners always seems expensive... But what a great find on Etsy!

  2. What is that paint color?! So pretty!

    1. Hi and thank you! It's Benjamin Moore's Halo. You can see my post about painting it here:

  3. The third mirror is defintely the best - love the rustic feel to it and it goes perfect with the material you've picked for the bathroom blind.

    I didn't realise you could get the material on Etsy either - so thanks for that tip!


I appreciate all of your comments! If you have a question, I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
