There is a bathroom style for everyone! At A Piece of Mine we like anything lace, burlap, rusty, vintage or shabby chic! To go along with that theme here are some great bathroom design ideas to get you going!

Claw Foot Tubs are always classic and romantic!

A hutch in the bathroom? Brilliant! Paint it any color to match!

Classic Shabby Chic bathroom. Gold, white and cream

Love the wooden bench and pennant above the mirror.

Love the newspaper wallpaper. This can also be done with wallpaper glue and old book pages.

Here is a beautiful color pallet for the following bathroom designs

Bathroom Re-Do under $15

I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. This weather is amazing! Zero humidity, my favorite! Well, last week we shared with you a Mason jar DIY project and to go along with that I thought I would share this beautiful bathroom with you.

It's amazing how simply changing out the towels in a bathroom can give it a whole new look! What is your favorite color to decorate your bathroom? Write the color in the box comment box below!

June's DIY Projects

I have kind of a thing for Mason Jars. I use them for vases, salads on the go and tall ice tea cups in the summer. The older jars can be trickier and more expensive to find but you can also find them for as low as 25 cents a piece at good will.  Turning down a good Mason jar is a hard task considering you can fill them with so many goodies as gifts.      
 Our crowned jewel of Mason Jars today though is this beautiful soap dispenser.

You can find a beautiful tutorial on how to make your at theblissfullycontentlife blog. 
Another great tutorial that requires a little extra effort is here at Heather Bullard

Another great DIY with lots of pictures to guide you on your quest to up-cycle your items is <<HERE>>. It is this fabulous old school desk.

As always if you want one but don't have the time to make it feel free to call the store at (262) 620-4347 and talk to us about making one for you!

Have a great weekend!

Happy Wednesday!

Good Morning! Today is a beautiful day to come down and visit us at the store! Here's some of the new things we have!
A cute little birdhouse made out of recycled parts. 
Adorable foyer table or porch drink table 
 Bookends! Perfect for all that summer reading we talked about yesterday!
Sweet candelabra! This would be adorable in a nursery or little girls room 
This is an old desk with burlap drawer pulls. In the background is our unique metal peace sign. We have a special metal artist that hand makes these exclusively for A Piece of Mine! 

 Lovely silver platter with flowers from Mabert's Nursery.
Iron lighting
Jars! Fill them with anything you can think of. Kids and grandkids especially love them filled with candy for a special treat!

With the 4th of July right around the corner these are perfect additions to any home.
We have lots of cute knick knacks to fill your shelves!
This is an old sewing table turned buffet. 
Old sewing boxes. Wondering what to do with them click HERE to find some great ideas. Check out our Facebook Note HERE for more ideas too!
And spools and buttons to round out the sewing ensemble.
Last but not least a beautiful old trunk. This makes a great coffee table that would double as a blanket chest or toy box!

A gorgeous day for....

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday weekend! Today is a beautiful day to sit back, relax and read a book. A few days ago we talked about how to reuse pallets as...well, whatever you need! I think with this weather a pallet would make a perfect porch swing!

Like this one!
I've been shopping around for patio furniture recently and it can be very expensive! I love the idea of a whole patio set made out of recycled pallets. It may take a little time to work on but who wouldn't want to spend time outside in weather like this! A little paint and adorable pillows and you have your very own customized, gorgeous patio furniture!

And just in case you need a way to store all those summer reading books we've got just thing down at the store! Check out the claw foot bathtub feet turned bookends!
So cute!!

Whatever you choose to do on this beautiful day have fun and don't forget your sunscreen!

Drop us a note below to let us know how you spent your Memorial Day weekend! We would love to hear about your family's traditions.

Special Sunday Post

Good Morning! Just wanted to drop everyone a note to have a great Sunday! What do you spend your time doing on Sundays? Take some time to sleep in, make a special breakfast, go to breakfast with your grandkids or maybe you sip your coffee and read that special book you've been meaning to get to. Whatever you do, enjoy a break, stop and smell the roses! Life is too short to busy all the time.
