You guys, I was watching Trading Spaces the other night and it was down right SCARY. I’m not kidding, they painted someone’s bedroom in four different colors. It was pink, yellow, blue, and green. Even the furniture was painted to correspond with each color in the room. It was basically like a rainbow exploded. To each their own I guess, but EEESH. That room would stress me out. Anyway, enough about that–let’s move on to more relaxing things! I wanted to share a simple little bathroom refresh with you guys today, along with a DIY bathtub tray I made recently.
So I made that little bathtub tray recently and it was SO darn easy. I just measured the length of the bathtub, cut a piece of pine to length, and then I used chalky spray paint to paint it white. I finished it off with a little distressing and a topcoat of the chalky matte clear wax finish to seal it. Then I screwed two handles on each side (from Hobby Lobby) and that was it. Easiest tray ever.
This little tray was seriously so quick and now I’m wondering why I didn’t make one a long time ago. I love using it when I’m soaking in the tub–it’s perfect for holding my book, candle, etc. It even works well for chocolate cake. You know, if you’re into that kind of thing. And on an unrelated note, I’ve been loving two drops of Peace & Calming essential oil in the bath to help me unwind. SO GOOD.
I like to keep these shelves pretty simple–just a few extra towels and a little greenery. And I always keep extra soap in an old jar. My father in law actually made these floating shelves, but Target carries some that are very similar.
If you’ve been around for a while you might remember that DIY towel rack I made from an old bed frame. Isn’t it cute?! I actually still use it and it’s one of my favorite DIYs ever.
I really haven’t shared this area in my bathroom very often, but I love it. It’s kind of like my mini at-home spa, especially now that I have a little bathtub tray for all my goodies. I just wish it stayed looking this cute all the time! But at least it’s cute now, right? We’ll see how long it lasts! Anyway, thanks so much for dropping by today. I hope this gives you an idea or two for your own home. xoxo
