It all started with a white Ikea Ribba Frame. The shelf was hung over the toilet, which is separated by a door from the shower and sink. So I wanted to add a little something simple and special. First step was to spruce up the plain white frame. I purchased flat corner braces from the local hardware store, and FYI they are located on the isle with the door knobs :) The only problem was the size I wanted did not come in gold...no problem as my husband reminded me I could just spray paint them!!! Isn't he wonderful, he knows the way to this girl's heart! So that is just what I did, I spray painted the zinc plated braces with Rust-oleum Champagne Mist, which I had leftover from a Fall project. Then I installed them onto the frames.
Since the screws were the same color as the braces, after I installed them I brushed some spray paint on them with a small paintbrush. Then I made a little art for the frame and printed it at home on glossy printer paper. Since I am totally in love with little splashes of gold/champagne I added a little potted plant from Ikea. I purchased it from Ikea for $1.99 and added the faux plant for $0.47. The planter pot was originally white, but no problem there!!
Originally I wanted to spray paint the bottom half of the planter, but when I did the line wasn't sharp and frankly it was bothering me too much that it wasn't straight. So I ended up spray painting the whole thing.
I haven't decided if I am going to leave it like this or bring some white back to it, but for now I am totally loving my new little shelf and its accessories!!
The frame was given to me by my aunt, so I spent less than five dollars on this little update!! I am totally loving the little love that it brings to our bathroom!
With much love,
