When we moved into our house last June we tackled painting and replacing floors but left the half bath off the kitchen to do later. For almost a year now I've looked at an empty box with linoleum flooring and a builders grade basic sink. The walls had not even been painted. Using the cross stitch of the mermaid that my Mom had given me as inspiration, I set out to remodel. We replaced the sink, added a vintage mirror, put up beadboard and replaced the linoleum with sandy colored ceramic tile. I filled the shelves with beach glass from growing up on Lake Michigan and a favorite set of mermaid salt and pepper shakers. The finishing touch was the Lefton mermaids I was able to score on Etsy. I think they complete the bath perfectly. I clearly have the beach and water on my mind because I've cast on another "Age of Brass and Steam" shawl with the prettiest shade of blue yarn. Have a blessed start to your week!
