Making White Work
This week I spruced up the existing seaside theme of the sole bathroom in my house. This tiny white space has proved to me that, with a little imagination and the right accents, white walls really can work well.
I got the impression that my landlord, proud of his beautifully renovated all-white bathroom, didn’t want it painted. (He really, really likes white. He even installed “personal assistance” bars instead of towel bars so that they would be all white.) Therefore, I would have saved this room for last, except that a wonderful friend helped me decorate it as a thank-you present for letting her temporarily live with me.
Here’s a view into the ginormous bathroom from the hallway. I hope you can see the whole thing – it’s so large it was hard to capture it in one photo! (Insert sarcasm here)
Here’s a look at the tiny toilet nook. I added some driftwood and adorned the basket with a starfish to further emphasize the seaside theme. (Next I’d like to frame and hang a piece of beach art or a photo over that ugly and now defunct wall fan.)

Here is the other half of this spacious room, as seen from the toilet/sink area:
I eeked out a spot for bathroom storage and the dog’s water bowl (so easy to fill up quickly from the bathtub faucet) alongside the wall across from the bathtub:
I had a set of wind chimes but no place to hang them. So, like any good DIYer, I found a way to repurpose them – shower curtain adornments! They’ll tide me over until I find the right oceanic-themed shower curtain to replace my plain white one.
With that I conclude the long and extensive tour of my gigantic, cavernous seaside bathroom! :)
