Just got back from a week
at the beach in warm and sunny California.
(If you follow me on Instagram -- you may know this.
I kind of went a bit overboard
with the beachy pics in the last 9 days!)
I got to go to fun beach-y gift
and home decor shops
and got majorly inspired
with coastal living style.
Who isn't really?
Well, I got home last night
to finally pull together the
vintage and antique bamboo pieces
I have been buying for our master bath
for the last couple of years.
I bought this sweet
but pretty tattered old
bamboo curio cabinet.
|It is in fair shape and has the original wavy old glass doors.|
Since the back wall of the piece
is pretty rough and has gaps,
I decided to grab an old map
to use as a back drop
so the items I was putting inside
would show up a little more
once the doors were closed.
|Bought a stack of these years ago on Etsy to use as wallpaper and for decoupage projects. Still have a LOT of them left! Need some? I will mail them to you.|
|I stapled the paper onto the back wall to save time,|
but you could use double stick tape too.
|Then I started stuffing things I had inside... just layering it up.|
|This sweet vintage French rack with knobs came from Etsy. It has a faux bamboo look.|
|Found this old chair at a flea market in the fall. I need to get a soft seat cushion|
and back for it. I have been sitting on it like this at my vanity - not very comfy.
|This little folding vintage bamboo rack sits under the dormer window.|
|These little vintage prints also came from Etsy. I am going to frame them and run them|
along the bead board wall above the tub. I had some other prints there that I will replace..
I have not been doing much decorating
at our house lately
since I pretty much have NO energy
when it comes to my projects
after I work on my clients' homes.
You know how that goes?!?!
It will come together ... eventually!
