When Beard and I were dating he bought a driftwood sailboat from Goodwill. Fast forward 4-ish years, and that little sailboat is sitting in the back of the toilet in our only bathroom. Sadly, I haven't done much of anything, when it comes to decorating, to the bathroom. Since we're renters, we can't paint or put holes in the walls, which rules out a lot of ideas. But I recently realized just how lame our bathroom actually is and decided a change needed to happen.
A coastal theme wouldn't be my first choice, but Beard really likes the idea (and his sailboat), so I looked into putting my spin on it.
The most important thing to me as I started brainstorming this room was keeping it inexpensive. Beard and I are saving up for a house, so I knew I couldn't spend a lot on this room - especially if I want to do some work to other rooms, too. I settled on a basic budget of $25.
Right now, my main concerns are getting some art up on the walls to make the room look a little more homey, so I think that's where most of the money will go. Almost everything will be a DIY of some sort except things like buying a new shower curtain (RIP the boho one I bought from World Market.) The bathroom doesn't have a window, so I want to keep things light and fresh. I'm hoping to incorporate some driftwood Beard and I have had for a long time into a simple gallery wall.
Other than that, I'm not sure what we'll do. The items above remind me of textures or colors I want to incorporate, but not necessarily items I'm planning on purchasing. I would love some greenery, possibly shells, linens and some rope/wicker textures.
As of right now, this inspo board is square #1. I'm excited to see how this room turns out!
