Of course, I told my husband, what else would I do with such pretty plates? He just shook his head as he reluctantly hung them in of all places, a bathrooom....my special Powder Room, just off the kitchen. No guest has ever visited without complimenting my little green Powder Room.
I spent so much time putting my stamp on this room. When we bought our house, the previous homeowners didn't do much "interior work". They owned a Chestnut Plantation and a Nursery so the landscaping was beautiful (still is) but the inside needed lots of help. "Rescue me from the 1980's" is all I could hear it screaming. Sponge painting I hear was the rave back then. I think Shabby Chic in 2008 suits it well.
This little cabinet has been multi-purposed in my home for years. When we finished the bathroom, I thought it was the perfect size to house reading material & bath tissue and all the things you want out of sight in your Powder Room. I had some fabric I got on sale at Walmart that was the perfect compliment to the green on the walls. Roses & Green, two of my favorite things!
These adorable Cherubs greet you on the wall above the guest towels. A friend of mine gave them to me a few years ago. Again the "her trash, my treasure concept" brings such a sweet blessing my way.
I will leave you with this adorable mini rose bush that sets in my Powder Room. I got it the day after Valentines Day at Lowe's for $2.00. A beautiful bathroom should not only look lovely but smell fragrant. Nothing beats fresh flowers......
