Oh what a world, what a world…(remember the Wicked Witch of the West?) I’m MELTING! I’m in the tornado. I’m out of the tornado. In the last 4 1/2 days we’ve survived two little boys with the stomach flu and mom’s (me) trip to the ER. Good times. I think we’ve stepped onto the other side now.
I’m looking for Glinda, the Good Witch. I could use a giant bubble to float around in and definitely a magic wand.
If you have no idea what I’m talking about it’s been too long my friend since you’ve seen the Wizard of Oz. I’ve probably got Oz on my mind because I just watched Oz The Great and Powerful, the prequel to the classic. I liked it!
I’ve seen a lot of TV this week… Unfortunately, most of it has been Clone Wars and Scooby Doo Mystery Inc.
But enough about me. I know you are super jealous about my super duper week so let’s talk about you. And your bathroom. Not only do I have Oz on my mind but I also have bathrooms too. I’ve spent a lot of time in them this week. Again, I’ll stop. I don’t want your envy.
Want to fix yours up? Let’s start small. Because, well, that’s really all I can handle.
Look under your sink. Yup, I don’t know why all that junk is under there either. That’s prime real estate my friend. Now look at your counter. That stuff needs to go underneath. All. That. Clutter. Buy a narrow cabinet if you can fit it from a junk store and put the necessary overflow…this is mine.
And your towels? They need to match–and you need more.
Now all you need is some greenery.
That’s it. That’s Bathroom Staging and Redesign 101. If you pay me to come to your house to sell your house or do a mini-face lift this is what I’ll tell you. Think of all the money you just saved;) Now get some new not so tired looking towels, some plants, some organizers–to fit more stuff under the sink (since you just purged a garbage bag full of toiletries and nonessentials that you are NEVER going to use…NO ONE needs that many hair products.) Think boutique hotel. Think spa. I like white towels and lots of them.
And don’t forget the window in the bathroom! A bright valence, or bamboo blinds from Lowes or Home Depot will do the trick.
More inspiration…pay attention to all the plants, towels, and spa accessories–meaning utilitarian stuff in pretty containers that match and look pretty.
