Bathroom Re-do And A Hide & Seek

Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful day! Us....not so much! My husband and I are getting over a stomach bug. :( We are crossing our fingers that no one else gets it! Because we all know how fun that WON'T be!! But I guess there is nothing we can do but wait and see.

I thought I would share pictures of my bathroom. There are still a few finishing touches that need to be made. My closet is off of our bathroom....a few years ago we took the closet door off and I hung up a tab top curtain, well that one no longer matches so I am on the lookout for a new one. And I am also looking for something unique to put on the wall above the shower. But here are some pictures of what I have gotten done so far~

The peg boards were just unfinished boards that we had in our garage forever. I painted, sanded, stained and pounded masonry nails into them and my hubby helped me cut them to fit and screw them in! He was a little confused as to what I was visualizing but after the peg boards were hung up and decorated he really liked them! I like them a lot too...and you can't beat FREE decorating!
The wonderful basket you see hanging there was made by Pam It is her onion basket. I just love it!

The sign is above our door and the flowers sit on top of a tall linen cabinet~

I am so glad that it is finally painted and all freshened up! A good job done! The paint color is the same as our bedroom Rio Grande by Ralph Lauren. I am very happy with the color!

Here is a hide and seek that I wanted to share with all of you. We have a Bose sound unit on top of our computer desk. It is bright white and I have been wanting to camouflage it for a while now. When I saw this amazing Toaster Cover made by Teresa. She has a wonderful website Teresa's Primitive Treasures Check it out and from there you can also go to her Etsy shop too! I e-mailed Teresa with the measurements of our sound unit and when she gave me the measurements of the toaster cover....well....let's just say it was made FOR ME! It worked perfect! Isn't her painting just amazing! I am so happy with it...and I am thinking I need another box on top of it so that it looks like a couple of stacking boxes. Something to think about~

Now you see it~

Now you don't~

Who says you have to put a toaster under a toaster cover! I am such a rebel!! LoL!
That's about it for now.....I have some Goodwill/Salvation Army/Garage Sale goodies to post. But I will save that for next time...I am hoping to have some of my treasures made over soon! So until next time take care. ~Sarah~


  1. Lovin' the makeover. Especially the color. Whatever is that color?

  2. Sarah, that toaster cover worked perfectly. We also a a Bose system with those speakers everywhere. I always put things in front of them but your idea is much better.

  3. Great job Sarah, I love the pegboard and the little toaster cover is very nice too. I bet it feels good to be done.


  4. Love the pegboard in the bathroom! Great idea! What color is the bathroom walls?? I love the color! What a perfect way to hide the speaker!

    Hope you're feeling better :)

  5. Sarah~You are killing me girl...making me and the rest of us wait for your found treasures!
    I love your bathroom. The color is amazing and the peg rail is what I would love to have, but my husband couldn't visualize it either. Now I will show him yours and maybe, just maybe, he can make one for me!
    What a great use of a toaster cover. She did a great job with the painting.
    Have a great Wednesday...and thank you for sharing your bathroom with us!

  6. Your bathroom is looking so nice Sarah! I need to redo mine......... one of these days!!!


  7. Sarah ~
    I'm so sorry you and your husband have been sick. It sure is no fun. Love your bathroom ~ prim perfect. I also love the peg rack ~ just love it all. Thanks for the plug, sweetie.

  8. Sarah~
    I love the color of your bathroom. My son's room is painted that color. It's so warm and cozy. I especially like the pegboards.
    The toaster cover's a clever idea. I have a speaker, too, that needs hidden. Hmmm...I might have to borrow the idea! LOL

    Have a good evening,

  9. Your bathroom color looks a like my garage doors now! So warm and cozy! What a great way to cover the bose. I have a Cambridge soundworks and I need something like that to cover it too. Thanks for the idea!

    Feel better soon!! hugs, Linda

  10. love youer taste!! Color of bathroom looks real similar to mine!! LOVE IT. Neat idea for toaster cover....also where did you get the topiary??sp?? My mom has those and I love them! my blog is - email me thanks!!!

  11. great idea! Never would have thought to use the toaster cover to hide unsightly things....great job!

  12. love you bathroom!...I am loving that peg rack!....can't wait to see more goodies from your redecorating!

  13. Your bathroom looks great. I love the pegboard you put up. I really like your speaker/toaster cover too. Have a great evening and I hope no one else gets sick.

  14. Hi Sarah,
    Love your bathroom!...I have a peg rack that goes around our bathroom also.
    Hope you and your DH feeling all better now.

  15. LOVE your bath! I am wanting to redo our one bathroom and you have given me many ideas! AND that toaster cover is great! Teresa is an amazing crafter....Our customers love Teresa and her talent! How lucky for you to have that toaster cover, oops I mean BOSE cover...!!!

  16. I love the peg boards in your bathroom! That wall color is so cozy. That is such a great idea to cover your Bose. I just bought a Bose system about a week ago. I'll have to do something like that to hide mine:-)Hey, what was the name of that store in Lincoln that is in an old house and the lady makes most of the stuff she sells? I think you said it wasn't in the best part of town. Hope you have a great day Sarah!

  17. What a great idea! We have a few surround sound speakers in the living room that need hiding. I'm thinking of boxes with screening on the front so they are hidden but can still hear. (How could we watch James Bond movies without the surround sound?!!! LOL)

  18. Oh my gosh Sarah everything looks so good. I just love the peg board in the bathroom. I'm so jealous but in a good way. :) I really love the toaster cover clever idea. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your redo's.

    I'm glad you and hubby are feeling better I hope the children don't catch your bug.


  19. your bathroom looks fab!! love the peg boards..really added a lot and now you can hang great stuff from the toaster cover thing genius is that..:)
