Half bath makeover with industrial shelves

After recently repainting part of our main floor I decided our little half bath needed an update as well. 

It was still nice, but I was over the stripes and wanted a different look.





I started by sanding down the edge of each stripe. Then I painted the room smooth stone by Glidden. 

We added industrial shelving on the back wall above the toilet (love them to pieces).  We changed out the light fixture and added a wood frame around our existing standard build mirror. Lastly I added some new fun touches to the room.

I stained the wood shelving and mirror frame with Min wax classic gray stain. We used Liquid Nail to attach the wood the mirror. 

Sorry this room is so small it's hard to get a good photo. 





Total budget for this room was under $200
Paint was leftover
shelving and mirror supplies $90.00
Light (found here) $30.00
Artwork/ decorations $70.00

Reorganized baking cabinet

It's been over two years since I first revealed my new baking cabinet (you can find it here). 

Over those two years I've moved all our spices over here as well. It just made sense since this cabinet is by our stove, and I was tired of constantly running over to our pantry. 

In time this cabinet kind of became a mess!
Recently I took everything out and reorganized it before I lost my mind!

Nothing fancy just moved some items to other places and cleaned it out, but it looks and functions so much better now.

In the future if I'm feeling ambitious I might add some colorful fabric to the back or paint it. I'd also like to add some organizers for the spices.
