Small Bathroom Makeover. hey guys do you have a few DIYs for you this is going to be really small quick DIYs and they’re going to be based around can making over a small bathroom so the other weekend i spent some time on our bathroom because it was looking really sad it had no life to it whatsoever and I just had to put any energy into it and it definitely reflected that so i decided to give it a little bit of a makeover and just going to add some different sort of natural elements to it i was really inspired by sort of zin style decor or you know nature-inspired decor and I wanted to kind of add those elements into it so let’s go ahead.
And get started I found these curly white willow branches at ross for only 499 a bunch and I thought that would make a nice kind of little divider between the toilet area and the same i had this already silver hammered basin and I poured industrial white sand into it and then one by one I press the branches into the sand and then I place that right between the toilet and the sink we found some tumbled marble at Habitat for Humanity to restore was on sale for only a dollar a sheet so we’ve got a few sheets of those and we’ve done some different projects with them for this one we’re going to take a quarter inch MTX.

And then we use loctite adhesive for mirror granite and marble and so you just lay out your stones and glue each one down without adhesive let it dry and then we use white sanded grout we scooped a couple of cups of grout into a bucket add a little water stir or mix and you should have a frosting or cake batter kind of consistency and then scoop the ground onto the mosaic press into all the gaps move it along the edges and we like to have some of the stones kind of sticking out or protruding beyond the edges it kind of gives it a more can bring an earthy look and so then that you just smooth everything out with a wet sponge and then let the grab dry and you’re all done we’ve made a few of these in different parts of the house but this one we’re going to place on the back of the toilet and I’m gonna set my vanilla orchid on top of it and back stock of toilet paper we have this blank wall space just above the toilet and we want to utilize that space and put in some shelves so Michael had this one by six board and cut it into pieces and screw them together next to use germs putty to fill in this through gaps and then let that dry.
And sand it smooth we painted the shelves embarrassing sold and kneeled in picture hanging hardware to the back measured and drill screws into the wall and hung the cube shells yeah yeah next we’re gonna make an aromatherapy bath soak with essential oils of your choice so this isn’t exactly decor but it can fit into your decor still and it’s usable so it’s gonna make a really nice aromatherapy bath for you so what we’re going to do is choose your favorite essential oils something you really enjoy the center of one of my favorites is sweet orange and then choose a carrier oil of your choice i’m going to use this monoi de tahiti this is my favorite vanilla and use coconut oil and then also some coarse sea salt so just take a glass jar for some sea salt in at about twenty drops of your essential oil and then a dash of your carrier oil blend it together I’m going to take mine off with a little more sea salt finish mixing it and you’re all done and whenever you’re ready to use it you just take a scoop drop into your bath water and let it dissolve and you’ll have a soothing aroma therapy back one thing I’ve never been a fan of is having to go pee in the middle of the night and stumbling into a dark bathroom so i decided to make this night light and I wanted it to have natural elements as well so i just took a glass cylinder that.
I got at walmart and then I grab some stones from the beach just some smooth stones fill the bottom with that and then place your candle over the stones and then you have a beautiful night light that has that natural element as well and since it’s gonna be a night light we use a flameless candle not a regular candle I found these bamboo candles at goodwill for only a dollar they were brand-new and they smell like honey they just are going to fit in really nicely with the natural elements theme and i’m also going to add these stacked stones if you just beach stones i found that they’re just you know super flat very smooth and I always kind of liked the look of stacked stones and also some time doing the bamboo candles i decided to go and set my other battles up there too this is another aromatherapy bath soak and it is coconut is amazing my friend actually makes these here on Maui and i love the packaging it has this like bamboo it’s like this little bamboo whole stick with salt inside is just super cute that’s the homie honi about that soak on the top shelf i place my Australian burn in a white decorative ceramic pod now it comes to small bathrooms and most windows are going to be very small.
So I’m going to have a very narrow window sills but it’s still kind of fun to take advantage of that space so what I’d like to do is make it little tiny can miniature plants and set them up at the window sill so what you can do instead of going out and purchasing a plant is if you already have a house plant some of them you can actually take cuttings from and make more plants for free some plans are really easy to propagate from cuttings one is the golden pothos planet which is a very popular house plan I found these tiny white ceramic pots at walmart and our drainage holes were quite large so i added a few small stones to the bottom and then fill them with potting soil soaked the potting soil with water and then you can take a cutting from one of your plants so i found a good healthy buying and it has several leaves it has some roots already coming out of its own men make a cut just below the roots and a half and your quarter inch or so and then remove the last leaf or two and then i’m going to dip in rooting hormone that’s optional you don’t have that you don’t have to use it just makes it kind of start reading a little bit faster and new routes are going to sprout and grow from the old leaf node areas and just stick it in the soil press down firmly and you now have a miniature apostles plant that will be growing for you very soon now some friends can easily be separated as well.
I have this lemon but inferring and i’m going to gently work the root club apart split into two plants so I’m gonna have two tiny plants instead of one bigger one and so I’m gonna stick that in the soil water and you’re done so there’s a couple of ways to propagate new plants really easily without having to go out and purchase more so you have a couple of free new plants just from house once you already had growing i also have a peacefully in the bathroom that I have on the floor it’s currently waiting for a larger pod that peacefully is a lush rainforest plants that can make a beautiful house plant especially in the bathroom and I can also help you talk to your hair I wanted to make the overall space brighter and kind of more spacious so i added a mere just stuff our towel rack and that really helped open up the space and add more light on sensitive since we only have a very small window it really helped to can brighten up the room and kind of take any light that is coming in through the door and window and help reflect that out and definitely keeping a clean countertop or keeping it as clean as possible with this view items out as possible is kind of distressing and it’s k more relaxing than to walk in your bathroom and see a whole bunch of things all over the counter unless of course that’s how you have to have your setup and everything but if possible and kind of reducing the amount of items or at least organizing them nicely.
I can help kind of create a more relaxing space for you to get ready in the morning so the only things that we keep our counter it’s our soap dispenser and are cute polar and need set we got that Ross as far as organization goes under our sink i did a whole makeover and i’ll post a video below that is a whole video just on that that was quite a project in itself I’ll have that post below and then also in our medicine cabinet it’s not super organized but it works for us so we have our first aid in the cabinet on the right the middle cabinet is toothbrushes and our oral hygiene and then be coming up on the left is on my skin here so i have my end of the naturals I had a little acrylic container with cotton pads and q-tips i also have Maya cure wales in there and then up above I have like hair serum and my coconut oil and don’t forget behind your door on the back of it you can also utilize that space by either putting like a full-length mirror to help with getting ready in the morning if you get ready in the bathroom at all or are you going to put a towel rack we put a towel rack actually got clothes on it was all white so it matches perfectly and it just really served us well to have an extra place to hang towels that we really didn’t have very many places to be able to hang with towels are ready to let them dry or robes or whatever I’m so that’s another option is utilized in that space behind your bathroom door so one of the changes we made to make the biggest difference with switching our old printed fabric shower curtain we left our vinyl liner up and then i just added a second extension bar I place it several inches higher up to kind of give the bath area more prominent sort of look and then i added linen curtains on the sides there are my old curtains and they were folded up and just in the closet I’m just sitting there so i want to put them to use instead of going out and buying a new fabric showering so we just use that instead as our new linen fabric shower curtain so that made a nice kind of change to their like the natural look of it rather than the old shark and we have been there before of course there’s lots of ways to do DIY shower curtains where you can actually purchase the metal grommets and put them into any fabric just about that you want and you can make your own shower curtain just like that alright guys thank you so much for watching I hope you enjoyed some of the ideas let me know if you did
