the water closet

the wc / bath

Last month we received some yellow flowers... not lemon, but a good yellow with mustard undertones... and some funky metal flowers in at the Barn.  I had mentioned i was going to do one of the bathrooms at home with that accent.  I know these photos are long over due.... but what's a girl to say... better late then never.

The walls are grey. The door and cabinet... plain Jane Oak underneath my distressing paint job.
The cabinet top a quick pre-cut granite from the Home Depot.

a touch of my new yellow accent color

the metal shelf is also a fun touch....I love the holes in the back

this lovely metal measuring container needed a home and so did the boys tube of shaving cream..

some fun knobs from Anthro

a shot of the door.... many layers of paint to mimic a vintage wood door

my favorite shower curtain... also Anthro

and the new rug.... with the perfect yellow color

I'm sure you recognize many Barn items... but you know, I only purchase things for the Barn that I want for my own self.... I am my best client!  Just ask Mr. Miller....

love the new towel.... Anthro.... I am starting to sound like I am their best client also...

.... busy, busy weekend at the Barn.
The sun was out all day Saturday and we were hopping!
 I feel like I need some time off and it is only Monday.
Oh boy, not a good way to start the week...
Stay tuned lots of good stuff to show you this week

... I didn't want to leave you without my trusty weather note...
12" - 20" of snow coming for us.
I do believe I am quite sick of the snow!  I'll let you know...

This is awesome. I hope you don't mind if I copy some things from you. I thought I was Anthro's best client. We can be that together, they have enough for us both.
Hope it warms up soon for you. I'm not bragging but we are having beautiful weather. My Wisteria is blooming!
Enjoy your day~KarenSue

I do LOVE your 'water closet'!
Hey, I'm going to be in your area next weekend - are you open on Sunday and/or Monday? The Barn, I mean, not the 'water closet. :)

I think your snow is coming from here in Colorado. They are predicting dire amounts of the white stuff in the mountains tonight and tomorrow. We'll see. Sometimes they don't do so well on predicting here!

Love your bathroom and decorations. And your clock collection is great. I've been collecting here and there, too. What is it with clocks? Hmmmm

Glad the sun brought out the customers, too! I'm ready for Spring and I believe most people are!

Have a lovely day. Oh, are you going shopping at Anthro today????
