Master Bath Makeover

A few weeks ago we visited the quaint little town of  Orange, Virginia for a friends wedding! I didn't want to leave without shopping...I mean exploring! Haha! What a lovely place. The people are so friendly and they have lovely little antique stores. It was Sunday and some of them were closed, but I came across Shabby Love! The owner of the store paints her own furniture and every piece is gorgeous! I've been looking for Annie Sloan paint forever and there it was! A full Armoire of it! Aaaaahhhhh! I was so excited! I wasn't sure at that point what I would paint, but knew I would find something! I've always liked the color Duck egg blue! Yip, I bought it!




The owner was kind enough to let me take pictures of this beautiful store!


TA...DAAA!

Well hello Annie Sloan! I've been looking for you! Hehe!



Everything in the store is just beautiful!

I would love to share more pictures, but let's talk about what I used the chalk paint for!






I bought this storage shelf a while ago and although I love how it looks I wanted it to work in my master bathroom. There was no need to sand and the chalk paint goes on really well! I only used one coat. I thought I would have to rough it up to get the beachy look I wanted, but the way it turned out was just the way I left it!



I hardly spent any time on it at all! I did however use a finishing wax and it brought out the dark areas much more! I love it!

Meanwhile... I bought this old roughed up window frame for $10 on craigslistt. I power washed it just to clean it up and get some more of the paint off.



I tied some burlap and brown ribbon to hang the wreaths and added eucalyptus for a natural look! It smells wonderful. I'm still in the process of making a window treatment and debating the color for the walls. 


The wreaths were only a couple of dollars at the craft store!




 Splish, splash, I want to take a bath! Hehe!







 I found this amazing basket at Ross for only $8:99, so I thought I would use it for my towels!






Everything is so accessible now!



Close up! 
I put these little battery operated candles in my candle holder they look so cute when they are lit!










A little candle light please!



Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
