    Default Adventures in Decorating Part 3

    On to bathroom #2 Although we have a big cabinet for medical items & toiletries, we didn't have much space for towels- we had been keeping a stack of bath towels on the top of the toilet tank. I got a little tired of this method & I took one of the wooden crates that I got for free & painted it with left over paint. Then I bought a butterfly stencil for 1.99 and using craft paint from my stash, stenciled butterflies up the side of the crate.After I repainted the bathroom (10.94), dh secured the crate to the bottom of the cabinet - perfect fit - leaving just enough room for the towel hanger. Now that pretty crate made the sink cabinet doors look naked, so I stenciled butterflies on them too. The finishing touches are the curtains that I crocheted from thread that I had in my stash (butterfly pattern was free from the internet) and the little butterfly tassel (hanging from the middle of the curtain rod)was .99....I have a framed butterfly picture hanging on the wall that was free, but I didn't take a picture.Adventures in Decorating Part 3-butterfly-case.jpgAdventures in Decorating Part 3-butterfly-stencil.jpgAdventures in Decorating Part 3-butterfly-curtains.jpg
