cottage bath

The cottage bath is finished.

It’s not a makeover because it’s been a hodge podge since we moved in over a year ago…

I was stalled for several months searching for the perfect cabinet for towels. Once I found it, everything else fell into place.

Starting with the antler makeover. They just make me smile.

The interior of the cabinet (previously a horrible red color) got a little freshening with some chalk paint in French Linen.

Is there anything more fresh and cozy than a fluffy white towel? I think not.

I wanted a shower curtain that tied in with the black and white penny tile, but that would play nicely with all the neutrals.

This one from Pottery Barn did the trick. I’m a sucker for anything in ticking stripe and the ruffles are the cherry on top!

The cabinet is pretty and purposeful. My favorite combination!

The baskets are filled with loads of travel size toiletries, extra tp, a hairdryer, and washcloths.

It’s all ready to go.

Now we just need some visitors!

    Just stopping by from the WOW party! I love your bath and how it turned out! The cabinet turned out great. I just posted my bathroom makeover, too. I would love to find a small cabinet to finish mine off right. You did a wonderful job!

    • Maple & Magnolia December 12, 2012 at 2:29 pm #

      Thanks so much Bonnie! It took me forever to find this one…don’t give up…you’ll find it! πŸ™‚

  14. lenka December 7, 2012 at 8:30 pm #

    Pick me, pick me ;I’m ready for a road trip.
    The transformation is darling. I especially love the curved shower ” ring” or pole.
    It just seems to give the room a charming nostalgic look.

    • Maple & Magnolia December 12, 2012 at 2:28 pm #

      Thanks, Lenka…you come on down anytime! πŸ™‚

  15. Sarah December 7, 2012 at 11:26 pm #

    My dream is to someday have a bathroom that would accommodate a pretty piece of furniture like your shelf cabinet. Lovely room; functional and simple. You pulled it together nicely

  16. Stacia December 8, 2012 at 6:54 pm #

    This may sound silly. But I am forever looking for perfect shaped and colored soap bars. Yours look really good in that jar. What type did you put in there?

  17. Stacia December 8, 2012 at 7:00 pm #

    hi susan. i sent you an email after i posted this comment. for some reason it didn’t show up at first.

    but now for my second question. i posted this at 12:54pm, do you know why it showing 6:54pm? i know we are on the same time zone, i live in chicago.


    • Maple & Magnolia December 12, 2012 at 2:27 pm #

      Hi Stacia…I think the clock on my blog is wacky. As far as the soap…it’s a hodgepodge from TJ Maxx. They have really nice brands of pretty soaps near the fragrances/accessories for cheap! Hope that helps. πŸ™‚

  18. Des December 9, 2012 at 1:22 am #

    What a fabulous little cottage bath…….the cabinet is amazing! I love the ticking shower curtain too! Beautiful……

    I found your site from Mrs. Mustard Seeds blog. I love what you have done with your bathroom. We hope to start our bathroom makeover over Christmas break. Where did you get the pair of baskets hanging on the wall. I am LOVING them!!!! I’m adding you to my favorites. I love your style!

    • Maple & Magnolia December 15, 2012 at 1:57 pm #

      Hi Katie, thanks for stopping by! I got the baskets at Tuesday Morning about a year ago. Merry Christmas!

  22. Deb December 15, 2012 at 8:23 am #

    It’s beautiful! Great styling. The shower curtain is a nice mix to the penny tiles. This is inspiring me to do a refresh of our guest bath as I’ve intended to do for years. There’s oak in there. I’m tired of it. It can be painted!

    • Maple & Magnolia December 15, 2012 at 1:59 pm #

      Thanks, Deb! Oh yes…the magic of paint! πŸ˜‰

    • Maple & Magnolia December 15, 2012 at 2:01 pm #

      Thanks, Deb. Oh yes, paint is a magical thing! πŸ™‚
