{curbside treasure}

one day while driving back from the grocery store I spotted this little table on the side of the curb..I almost drove past it thinking it's just junk! I stopped the suburban, picked it up, took it home, cleaned it up, sanded off all the old stain{it was a cherry color}and WOW what a difference..the little table came back to life! I left it just like that..sanding it down gave it a rustic look...also, you can't see in the picture but, it has a really sweet gold inlay in the middle of leaves and some sort of design & a gold strip & clover looking design around the perimeter of the table top..some of it is missing but, that just gives it character!


I have been neglecting our master bathroom because I have the hardest time when it comes to decorating MY home & didn't want to buy anything until I knew exactly what look I wanted for it..lol  I'm sure most of you decorators know what i'm talking about? right? or is it just me? lol

 I placed this little table in our bathroom and found a few things i've collected and put it together....

you can see the inlay a bit better...these chippy white metal pots I found at my favorite thrift shop for $1 ea!



I've had this rustic rubbed bronze iron plate rack for going on 10 years.....I can't part with it....It was in my old bathroom and now in my new bathroom..i've always used it for magazines..works great!
I need something else next to the bird print? can't quite figure it out yet...any ideas?

I still have more to decorate in here but, it's taken me this long to put up a picture so, you'll just have to wait for the rest to be finished! lol

Your bathroom is gorgeous...I was just clicking on some of the links from The Shabby Nest and I'm glad I saw yours! We are in the middle of a bathroom reno and our drop in tub with the granite surround and the paneling on the side is much like we are(my husband is, I should say!) doing. Thanks for the inspiration!
