    Default Decorated my bathroom for only $15...

    ...AT THE DOLLAR STORE!! I've always wanted to decorate but never could spend the money so I made a challenge to myself that I would decorate my apartment with only dollar store goods, but still make it look good. So far the bathroom is done and looks so pretty. I wish I could post a pic but here is what I got:
    A "gold" picture frame with a picture of a perfume bottle i cut from a magazine
    Two fake purple orchids
    a clear glass vase
    2 "gold" and clear glass candle holders (they look antique)
    4 purple flower shaped votive candles
    one lavender and dark purple pillar candle
    1 bag of seashells
    5 lilac coloured scarves
    3 crystal perfume bottles
    1 black, purple, and lavender floor mat

    The shells are in the bottom of the vase with the orchids and also around the candle and along the bathroom shelf
    The scarves are draped around the mirror and the shower curtain.

    The only thing I didn't get from the dollar store was the shower curtain that I bought last year...clear with black, silver and white dots...

    I'm so excited....onto the kitchen next!!!

    very cool! I should give myself a challenge like that. Ive been on my own for a couple of years, and I have yet to decorate anything. For the first year and a half we didnt even have furniture! We figured if we waited long enough someone would be giving it away, and sure enough! We got two couches, a futon, coffee table, two end tables, entertainment center, recliner, and computer desk for free! Now, just to get that decorating stuff done.....

    Awesome! I wish you could post pictures because I would love to see -- sounds beautiful. I think I may do something like this for myself when we move. Right now, nothing in our apartment is "decorated" (aside from a cute Finding Nemo framed picture I have hanging in the bathroom which DBF gave me) and I think it would help the new place feel more like home.
