About This Space

I inherited my childhood home and the bath was a 1960s monster - bad floor tile, horrible medicine cabinet/mirror/lightbar combo. When I removed the mirror combo, it revealed the original 'hole' in the wall from the 1930s built-in medicine cabinet. With plaster walls, I was not sure I wanted to drill, chop, and run wiring for a new light fixture. My decorating style is primitive country, so I used old chippy shutters hung horizontally to dress the wall and hide the hole, and I bought a new light fixture. I cut and painted a fitted floorcloth to cover the tile floor (now I can roll it up, take it outside and scrub it.) I painted the cabinets flat black and added star door pulls to coordinate with the iron stars on the wall and the stars on the light fixture. It is a stop-gap renovation that literally cost no money (except for the new light fixture and door pulls.) When I have more funds, I will probably update the room again, but for now, I love it!
