1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Need ideas for my 50's pink and black tiled bathroom! on: February 14, 2008 06:45:28 PM
DH and I are buying our first house--yay!

So we have an interesting bathroom. The tile is in really good shape and the floors are in good shape too so there isnt really a need to replace them but they seem to clash. what can I do to make it look cute? I could do a theme or I was thinking of adding some nice framed black and white art/photography(though there isnt much wall space).  I want it to look nice (we have some brushed stainless steel stuff) -- please dont suggest pink flamingos and i dont want it to have a 50s theme either.  Smiley we are planning on replacing the light fixtures but any other suggestions would be appreciated!

This is when you first enter the bathroom, to the left of the sink.

(This is my very first post and my first project of this kind.)
So after searching all day, I found this ugly thing at the Salvation Army priced at $9.99. I asked for a better price and got it for $6.99.

It appeared to have been homemade and using some upholstery fabric-you know, the kind that your grandma has on her couch that no one will sit on.... yuck!

After pulling out about a million staples and prying out a lot of nails, removing the gross stuffing stuff i ended up with a box basically. a STINKY box. (after an entire day of spraying with lysol, febreeze and body spray it finally smelled better)   Smiley

So i went to the store and bought a 2x4, foam, black lining fabric, microsuede upholstery fabric, a staple gun and staples, hinges, thick batting, fence post toppers for the feet and a hacksaw. BTW- i started this project on Dec 1st and got it done just in time! I told you i was a procrastinator!
These are the during shots...

This is where the hacksaw came in, the screws are permanently attached to these and they were too long so i had to saw a little bit off.  I painted these with some paint i already had.

And the completed project!

I am going to put the hinges on later so i can just flip it open. I plan on putting magazines or the remotes or maybe a blanket in there. I love it, let me know what you think!
