The Guest Bath Gets A Wee Little Basket

A few weeks ago I shared a small portion Sweet Guy’s bathroom that also doubles as our guest bath. I recently added one small touch.

The bathroom is a rather small space that doesn’t have any windows or architectural charm.  I had hung a nice seaside oil painting for the wall area next to the sink but felt like there was still a large expanse of empty space below.

I found an basket at Homegoods that had a rustic/industrial feel that I thought might work perfectly. At the same time I picked up a small scrub brush and a package of 3 square soaps.

I unwrapped the bars of soap and tied them together with a bit of twine. Then added a box of tissue, the scrub brush and nestled in a mercury glass container filled with q tips. There is still room for Sweet Guy to tuck in his comb or other grooming paraphernalia.

The starfish was hot glued onto the front as an afterthought but I think it works well.

Have you made any small changes?

Very pretty! I like the metal with the soft accessories. The star fish makes a fun touch to tie in with your shower curtain trims. It's so nice for guests to feel like they don't have to poke around in bathroom cabinets...but you know they will anyway! lol

Yes, the small changes I've made lately around the Guam place are many in number. Small changes, big difference. Amazing how that works.

Great ideas! Love the results!

Hugs and happy highways,

That is such a cute basket with the added starfish on it. I like how you filled it too.

That's actually a great size - big & square enough to hold the right essentials. A real plus under the print.

Funny how these nice touches make such a big impact but they really do, they finish a space off so nicely and are functional.

Sometimes a small change is all you need for a fresh start! I love starfish and have them all over my house!
