The Guest Commode is Complete!

...yes the beach themed oasis of a guest bathroom is complete! I got the mirror, wreath and new towels & bath mat done! It was a productive weekend for sure. Now when guests come to visit the baby I can relax and know the bathroom is looking awesome. :) I still would like to have a towel storage rack of some kind in there... But that can be an upgrade we add on once I find it...or Matt makes it. Hehe. So here are the final pics! You can find the details leading up the this reveal {here} and {here}.
Check out the rest of the details!!
The tutorial I used for the rope mirror can be found {here}.  I basically just glued on top of the existing builder grade.  I didn't feel like taking it down and dealing with all that noise. :)

I wrapped each corner with twine for a finished look.
Coconut scented soap and lotion reminds me of the beach!! Love... 
You may recognize the sign from a plaque we saw in a store during our babymoon!  I just did a simple printout and framed it.  All the shells were collected from the beach of family vacations. 
The burlap wreath tutorial can be found on Roeshel's blog {The DIY Showoff}.  Super easy to do... and I just LOVE how it turned out!  It matches the decor perfectly!
We decided the red towels and rug were just too out of place so we took a trip to Kohls and picked up these light blue towels and matching rug (super soft by the way!)... I just tied them with the leftover rope from the mirror... 
Overall we LOVE the new room.  I may add some accent art of the walls later on, but for now it's just what I envisioned.  Now we wait for guests...anyone interested??  :)


  1. Very nice! Good for you! I'll be right over. ;)

  2. Such attention to detail. It looked good even without all the extra's but it's just even better now.

  3. WOW!!! It looks GREAT!! kudos girl.

  4. Oh my goodness! What a beautiful bathroom! I love all of the DIY details and of course, that wreath! Yours is gorgeous! Fantastic job on everything, Kathy!

    1. Roeshel, coming from you... that means a lot! Thanks!

  6. I love the stripes, and the rope-wrapped mirror against them! thanks for linking up :-)

  7. Great job - love the mirror design!

  8. Looks great I think the sign is hilarious.

  9. WOW, I love your bathroom! You have some mad decorating skills! Thanks for sharing at Unwasted Homemaking Linky party, please come back and link up again on Monday :).

  10. Just found you from Don't Waste Your Homemaking and I'm so glad I did! We just moved and I have been working on doing my half bath in a similar theme, to bring a bit of our many years in California to Indiana with us and this mirror idea is just AWESOME! I am definitely going to give that a try! Interestingly enough, I also have a shelf right next to the mirror/above the toilet with a wreath underneath (though mine is completely of shells) that same Scentsy warmer! Haha!
    Anyway, thank you so much for posting this inspiration:)

  11. I am in awe of your DIY abilities (and congratulations by the way on your new arrival).
    Question: Did you find it difficult getting the energy to do these projects during your pregnancy?
