Dish it...

My half bathroom needs some lovin'!  I'm really looking forward to painting some horizontal stripes inspired by this post from YHL.  For now I'm thinking my toilet looks a little bare and needs something.  So I went to my in-house "decor store" and grabbed a few things...a basket, clear vase [with some left over Valentine's Day buds] and a serving dish.

AFTER


 

After just 5 minutes of grabbing a few items I already owned [oh and by the way I scored the serving dish at Marshalls for just $3.00 on clearance] I added a little something-something to by bare toilet for a little added decor until I can find the time to paint those stripes.

SIDE NOTE....
After living in our house for a little over seven months, we have decided that the furniture that we originally picked out for our living room will need to find a new home.  Even though it's the most comfortable furniture we've ever owned and I love it that we both have our own sofa while watching TV, it's just too damn BIG.  There are only two ways we can arrange our living room which is a pretty big space, but is now taken up by two large pieces of furniture.  I also wanted to brighten up our living room a bit so instead we brought two new sofas that are lighter in color and smaller than the first two.  My husband even pointed out that the new furniture will look great with the new buffet, especially with the color that we have chosen.

We're going from two of these...


To two of these...

Hopefully we will finish the buffet this weekend...fingers crossed!
