Greetings! I’m still enjoying our first finished space and have lots of frugal decorating tips for the bathroom to share with you today.
I paid close attention to Leslie when she shot my bathroom and she answered all of my questions about photography. This was the first interior space she had shot but you would have never guessed. The photos were beautiful. (You can see them here.)
Tip 1: (And this goes with all of the decorating tips!) When looking for bathroom accessories, search the dollar store and dollar sections of Target and craft stores for the perfect items! Everything I used was $1.50 or less. The only splurge you should make are on good towels.
I also spray painted my $1 succulents’ plastic pots copper instead of repotting them into nicer ones.
Such a big difference!
Tip 4: Think outside the box with pretty dishes and tea towels in the bathroom.
Little dishes are great for a bar of soap or to hold hair ties and jewelry. Tea towels from the dollar section are the perfect size for a guest towel and can also add a pop of color. Tip 5: Don’t forget a tray to organize your bathroom items. With so many options for colors and patterns, it’s easy to transform a plain white tray with washi tape.
Tip 6: The dollar store is also a great place to find a scented candle. Candles are the easiest way to add warmth and a scent. Just add one, two, or go crazy with them for a big impact and a relaxing environment. 🙂 Tip 7: The dollar or clearance section in a beauty store or department store is a great place to find facial masks, body scrubs, and lotions. Place your hand lotion next to the hand soap. Display scrubs and masks next to a loofa or towel so you and guests will use them!

Right now, I think it’s time for a bubble bath.
