I thought I would show it to you in stages as I redo it. I have some guests coming next month for my mom's 90th birthday so I want it to be finished before then. However, as I am in a rental I can't paint or make any structural changes. (not that I am capable of making structural changes)
You may remember this basket. I first had it in my bedroom holding an old quilt.
Then when I moved last year I decided to fill it with my vintage linens and set it on a chair near my bed.
It was nice having the linens within easy reach, but I decided I wanted to be able to sit in the chair and I have done something new with the window they were sitting in front of. I will share that another time.
So I have moved the basket to the bathroom. I wanted to have extra towels handy and the basket is the perfect size for that.
I wasn't sure what to set it on, but then I remembered the old milking stool that used to sit at the foot of my bed. I replaced it with this white bench and since I didn't know what to do with the stool I stuck it out in the garage temporarily.
It was the perfect size to set the basket on next to the shower.
Since these were things I already had, this portion of the redo was free, including the pretty white shower curtain. I found it in my sister's rag bag. She had somehow gotten it stained really badly and as she, unlike me, just goes out and buys new, it was tossed. I rescued it. With some soaking in Biz and a couple of rounds of bleaching it was almost like new.
Next week I'll show you what I have done with a great find from an estate sale. They were ready to toss it.
