a little addition

This was one of our summer projects...a very simple & tiny pool bath.
I am so happy with the way it turned out. For the most part, this was a very cost effective project, (I can hear my husband laughing right now, ok, other than the usual and always expensive lumber, roofing, plumbing, electrician cost and contractors labor), (notice I didn't add window, 'cus that is what my husband, we do for a living),...and like always, most of what we used was vintage, from the hardware store or something repurposed. 

One of my favorite parts of our pool bath is the sink. It was a piece I bought from heather bullard at a barn sale in Nipomo (The sale is called Remnants of the Past which is hosted by an amazingly talented lady named Judy! It is very special, and I would highly recommend going!)
The trash can is a painted basket that I thrifted, the bench I bought at a garage sale for $2.00, the mirror was $15.00 at a junk shop, the faucet is a hose bib, (since it is a pool bath there is only cold water)...soap on a rope from etsy, the brackets for shelf and towel rod and hook, all hardware store....super inexpensive! 
We just left the concrete floors exposed.
Oh, and the wood used for door and shelf are our business partners old fence wood! So glad he wanted a new fence...I have gotten tons of mileage out of his old fence wood!

 The little latch hook is from the hardware store, door brackets too, as is the toilet paper holder. The door handle is a tiny green glass cabinet knob that we had left over. The hook on the back of the door is from a cute little local store called Picket Fences in Solvang.

The light fixture is from Ikea. Between the electrical part and the paper lantern it cost around $10.00 I believe. Love it. I can also change out the paper lantern part any time I want! Then there is the old military locker from the Rose Bowl, we paid about $100.00 for that. It fit perfectly next to the toilet and now holds stuff like extra toilet paper, sunscreen, ping pong paddles and balls, water balloons perfectly! The only thing I have left, is to make a cute little window treatment!

  1. Hi Julie, Thank you for the mention in your blog. Wait until you see the line up of vendors in October. I can hardly wait! I always plan on shopping a lot at the show but I get so overwhelmed by the amount of cool things that I don't buy a thing. I hope it is different this show.
