My Daughter's Shower!!!!!

About a year ago I decided to add some "pretty pictures" to my bathroom. I couldn't find the shabby chic border I wanted so I improvised. I emailed and received permission from a well known artist, who paints fantastic roses, to copy her art onto some card stock and use as a "border" in my bathroom. I didn't want to buy frames and put up pictures - way to expensive these days - so I just used that "Fun Tack" and put them up there with no frames. It turned out really well until my daughter came to visit. ;-)

She and her hubby came for a couple of days. She was cold and decided to take a hot shower in the guest bathroom. Well, when I went in there afterwards the cards were either off the wall on the floor or countertop or the ink had run on the card distorting some beyond salvation! Well, I told daughter about it but it wasn't a big deal so I removed them.

Then I found a pink toile border that was very inexpensive and looked like it was a Waverly so I grabbed it up from the internet. (Hah.....Let's see her steam that off the wall!!) Jack and I put it up last week but I still had some of those pretty cards left over and I loved them so I stuck them back up with some more "Fun Tack" - easy to use and removes without a trace of it on the walls.

This is the end result for those who may want to do it also. It really is a cheap and pretty way to decorate the bathroom.

Oh, and ignore the shadows on the photos. I'm not taking the pictures over again!!!


  1. Connie, everything looks so pretty. My fav colors also. I would love to come and take a steamy shower in that bathroom.

  2. Connie, that is one of the prettiest borders I have ever seen. I just love pink and white teoile. You have beautiful taste!! I love the La Bain picture too! SO CUTE! Where did you get that?

    Love you lots,

  3. Connie, that border turned out so good in your bath and really pulls it all together. Really lovely with all your special touches. I am a fan of toile and this border is gorgeous.

  4. That wallpaper border is heavenly, Connie! Thanks so much for sharing it with me. I still want to make labels of some sort with mine!

    Nan can't mess this one up!!

    Beautiful, sweets!
