White~Garden/Vintage Bathroom Decor

Hello! It seems that it is time again for White~Wednesday! I love this blog party over at http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/. The pictures are just wonderful from everyone. Please visit and you will see what I mean! First of all, we have been decorating a new bathroom! Yipeee. We have had tiny bathrooms in our older farmhouse home so this is a real blessing to us.
I went shopping at the thrift store for some things to decorate with and ended up spray painting most of them white. I am going for a Garden/Vintage feel in the bathroom...

Below are some of the finished products resting on a silver tray.

I found a large cream pitcher and sugar bowl with a lid. I keep makeup brushes in the creamer and cotton balls in the sugar bowl. Another little pitcher holds Q tips. Again resting on a silver tray. I like the feeling that they are corralled together.

I found this soap dispenser at Target. I bought 2 since we have 2 sinks. It was a little much but I figured it wouldn't be replaced in a long time so it was worth it to me.

Outdoor my little bunny is waiting for summer to come.

Thanks for visiting. I'll be showing more of my bathroom. I just love it but I'm still painting doors and trim. NEVER ENDING! BIG SMILE.

Hi Debbie, I love your collection that you put together for your bathroom. It makes me want to go thrifting so I can have a collection like that of my own! xx

Amy Kinser said...

All of your whites look so pretty. Isn't it great that you can paint something that is not working for your home and make it just perfect?

Blessings...Partying with you tonight.

Hi Debbie,
I've been missing in blogland the past few weeks, so I'm catching up on your posts. I loved your red, white and blue table setting, and your pink saturday post too. I'd never have thought to spray paint all of your finds to make them match. You just always inspire me!

You have some amazing pitchers, I looovvee pitchers, but my favorite has to be the bunny. Also - I read your mouse in the house post too. So funny, we occasionally have a visitor as well. Our 2 cats have nipped that problem in the bud though.

Faded Charm said...

Love your new vignettes in your bathroom and very organized too. Thanks for playing along today.

Wishing you a happy WW.

I like the idea of using pitcher, sugar bowl and creamer for toiletries. It's really cute.

Hi Debbie,
How nice to have a large bathroom. We have tiny ones here in our old house but I love old houses (just not the baths!).
Love your finds, can't wait to see more in the future.

Hi Debbie... I love what I see! I love silver trays too... they make eveything extra special! My favorite are those candlesticks... Gorgeous!

Kathleen Grace said...

I am falling more and more in love with white. I think at certain times we need simplicity and calm and white has that effect on us. The bathroom is beautiful, I had never heard of spray painting ceramic items until I began blogging. The thngs we learn from each other!

Hi Debbie!
What a great White Wednesday post!
Those pitchers are amazing. :-)

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Darlene said...

I love your vignette of whites on the tray. It looks so elegant and pretty. It is always worth it to spend money on something if you love it and the soap dispenser is gorgeous!!

Love your little outdoor bunny....awwwww.♥

Debbiedoos said...

Very nice whites Debbie....I have to get me some more white pieces:)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Goodness! I was so please to find that you also have some of the white, is it ironstone or whatever, with the fruit on it. How cute. I only have one piece. It is a pitcher with cherries on it and I love it. I used it for flowers. It was just a quarter at a garage sale...but now I will look for more. I didn't know there were other pieces! Yours are lovely!
Everything looks so cute...love the soap dispenser!
