Mini Makeover: Bathroom Counter
If you feel like your home is stuck in a rut or if you are like us and are in total limbo between the "Are we moving or are we not?" stage, remember that there are some super small changes you can make to spruce up your space.
My problem: The bathroom counter. Now, Brandon and I are really organized and clean people. We never leave anything out on our bathroom counter and it's always clean of brushes, makeup and hair products. But our counter was looking pretty dull.
Here's the before:
I picked up these two containers at CB2 a few years ago (they used to have lids, but those shattered when I was cleaning them one day). Yawn.
So I simply added a white tray from the Target dishes section ($8.99).
And my Anthropologie mug to hold my makeup brushes ($8.00).
I loved this mug, but it wasn't very useful for sipping tea. The thumb hole is small and awkwardly placed. Also, the mug gets very hot and just overall wasn't functional. But, cute as button, obviously.
So re-purposing it was the next best thing. My makeup brushes were stuffed in my makeup bag and now, they are easy to access and (in my humble opinion), pretty cute on display.
There you have it. $16 and a much better looking bathroom counter and some added functionality.
Anthro fans: what is your favorite find there?
