In the meantime, in between packing and shipping orders, I have actually been able to maintain a little bit of a life this weekend. A fellow polish addict recently pointed me to the blog Chloe Conspiracy and I am LOVING it! Well on one of the posts, she featured these ceramic hands from Urban Outfitters that hold your accessories.
Well I have this weird cabinet with a counter in between my shower and closet. It is the strangest place to put a cabinet in a bathroom. I have no clue why they would put this there instead of putting a linen closet. I have hated this space in my bathroom since we moved into this house. I placed a bowl of rocks and shells, a towel rack with a towel and my electric toothbrush on this counter. SOOO ugly. A few weeks ago I decided to display some of my makeup on it. I decorated with stuff around the house, and it looked good, but then I saw the ceramic hands. It became clear in that instant that I should use this space for my accessories! So while in Orlando this weekend I stopped in Urban Outfitters to see if I could find the hands. I tried to order them online, but they are sold out. They had three left in the store. The polish collector in me wanted to grab all three. But I was good and only grabbed one.
ANYWAY - I spent some time moving most of my accessories out of my closet and out to the counter in my bathroom. I haven't finished yet, I need to buy some more hooks to hang the necklaces on and maybe even a second earring holder, but seriously - you just want to see what it looks like right? OK OK here it is...
Here is the after picture. I should have taken a before picture. These pictures all came out a little yellow - must be the lighting in there!
Here I am picking out some accessories
A close up. Isn't that bunny ring holder adorable? I repurposed the towel rack into a necklace holder!
So what do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? What would you have done with this space?
