The Primitive Bathroom
The bathroom has many possibilities for decorating in the primitive style.
Here are a few new ideas for decorating "your" prim bath.
I found this old mirrored shelf at my local salvation army for $5.00. Because my bathroom is mostly black and white I decided to paint the shelf flat black. It was originally a maple color. Some of the color bled through when I was finished but I thought this just added to the primitive theme.
Next I took out my old medicine cabinet that was actually recessed in the wall. So now I had this big hole in my wall and when I placed the new shelf over it I had a couple of inches on the top and bottom that was open.
I got this idea to take some black and white checked fabric and make cute little valances to cover the openings. I just used those extension rods on the top and bottom.
I placed all my prim items on the shelves using some bowls to place toothpaste etc. I just loved the way this turned out and it's something you can do too very easily.
To update your bathroom for spring, use strips of fabric instead of hooks on your shower curtain. Use the same material for tiebacks and you have an original primitive look for your bath! Here is a pic I took of a white ruffled shower curtain that I gave a primitive look to. Something this simple can give your bathroom a whole new look for spring!
This is a clock that didn't work any more so I decided to make a prim wall cupboard out of it. I left the glass in the top and just placed a Ivory Soap sign in back of it. The bottom I took out the glass and placed a cute ivory prim bucket and added some daisies. The prim bucket just sits on the shelf.
If you have a quilt rack you can hang bath towels on it too. This really adds to the primitive look of your bathroom.
Shutters on your bathroom window are a great way to enhance the early American appeal. Hang small primitive stars, or whatever primitive pieces you like, from the slats in the shutters. This definitely says "I love my primitive bathroom!"
