At the bottom of those post I’m giving away a $100 gift card to one of my favorite decor sources!
Ugh… MONDAY! As I write this I’m savoring the last moments of Sunday and just wanting time to slowwww down! Our weekends have been full of house projects and this one was no exception. I spent a little bit of time on our half bathroom this weekend, giving it a quick makeover. It’s a great little bathroom right off of the kitchen, so I see it often.
This room really is totally fine and functional as-is, but you know me, I can’t leave well enough alone. I needed it to feel more like my style, so the first thing I wanted to address was the matching mirror/vanity combo. I got lucky at one of my favorite sources, the online auction site called Everything But the House (EBTH), and found this vintage 1940’s oval mirror. Forty dollars and it was all mine. Here’s the half bathroom now.
I dug through some packing boxes and found some goodies to decorate with—the soap from the ostrich bathroom, my DIY quote art, the Charley Harper tea towel (which I stole out of its frame), vintage mother of pearl inlay brass knobs, an IKEA bath mat and some old canisters from Target. Done and done (for now)!
Part of the reason why I picked that mirror and those canisters is because they carry the orange-y tone I am trying to infuse throughout the house via multiple materials—wood, textures, leather and fabric. It’s a big part of dream design aesthetic for this house so this feels like a really good first baby step.
Anyways, can we talk a little bit about EBTH? I have been shopping EBTH for YEARS. YEARS. It has been my secret design source for a long time and I have seen this company grow from a little Cincinnati business to being super big and super popular. So happy for them! Remember my lime green tufted sofa? EBTH is where I got that beauty. Really anything unique and old from the house came from there. They now are in multiple locations across the US, which means for my US readers it’s likely there’s one nearby.
I’m not sure if they’d want me to describe it like this but EBTH is really like a micro-eBay and specifically for estate sales. You follow items you are interested in, bid on them and then arrange shipping or go pick them up. If you’ve done eBay, you can do EBTH no problem.
Here’s some of the things I’m following currently on their site. I typically hold myself to the Rug and Textiles, Furniture, Lighting and Furnishings categories. I especially like to look for unique pieces to stye with.
Pair of Hammered Brass Table Lamps (but change the shades of course!)
