The Powder Room~

Hello all!  Thanks so much for all your kind words on my sampler.  I had so much fun doing it.  Now I am just trying to find the perfect frame for it.  I mentioned in that post that I redid my powder room that didn't really need to be redone.  I just wanted a different look.  And, when the Mr. found this sign across the street from the shoppe, the wheels began spinning...


I had been drooling over Deborah's bathroom for some time and had collected a few beachy photographs, but I wasn't sure I really wanted a "themed" room.  The Mr. had a Hawaii themed bathroom when we were dating.  It was a little much *wink* He isn't really sure why I can create a beachy bathroom, but not be cool with the leis and grass skirts.  


My powder room has terrible lighting and since I don't know how to use a camera, these will be the best photos you get!  Last week, I came home with this vintage swim dress and finally started pulling all the pieces together.  



I kept the wall color and the little smokestand and just changed out wall art and accessories.


I actually have to credit the Mr. with finding al the stuff in here... I just pulled it together!  The little wood and glass box was something he found that I just couldn't sell.  And he bid on these great vintage photos taken at Brighton Beach around 1911.  


I wish these were my relatives!  Look at how much fun they were having!  I am a little obsessed with the girl in the middle.



I just added some bottles that I have had around the house and some seashells from our honeymoon and beach trips.


I love the vintage swim dresses on these ladies.  All I need now is a flowery swim cap!

We have an exciting weekend ahead of us.  My little sister is graduating with a degree in Nursing!  So, the baby and I are going to celebrate with her this weekend while the Mr. holds down the fort. Plus, it is her birthday too!!  I will be back next week to show you my table that needed painting!  And, if I get around to take some shoppe photos I will share those as well!

bye for now~

  3. Michelle,
    Your bathroom looks terrific! I love the sign that Mr Hughes found and the vintage swim dress you located! I can easily get lost pouring over vintage photographs. I know exactly what you mean about themed rooms, that was my biggest concern while adding a coastal feel to ours. It's such a fine line but you nailed it. Thank you for the sweet comments about our bathroom.
    Happy Birthday and Congrats to your baby sister on her graduation! My sister and mother are nurses.
    Your Friend,
    Deborah
