Relaxing days of Summer, find me in a creative and redecorating mood. Last week I finished several areas that I have wanted to do for so long. Here is just one room to share, my second floor garden bath!

The long double sink was, in it's past life, a golden oak and very pretty in it's own right, it just needed a lighter fresher look. I hand painted these and the commode area cabinet, in a soft off white and then stenciled a soft antique gold french design to finish the style. So after lots of paint and time, I love how they turned out and really gave the room a fresh new look with only the cost of paint!
Here are a few accents from around the bathroom.

Next time I will share the rest of my redo's from another bathroom, bedroom update, and kitchen painting completed. But for now, I will share some of the new treasures from the studio this week!

Sweet pink treasures that include a pretty accent table, Christmas ornaments, and another cupcake canister.

Lastly, I finished this sweet window bench. It is a great treasure from my friend Ann, from Ann's Finds. Made by a highschool girl in wood shop. She decided to sell it and Ann was lucky to find this great piece. I hand painted rusty, dark pink antigue roses on the seat. The bottom shelf holds an ivy plant, some books and a sweet mouse my mother made over 30 years ago. She looks so cozy taking a nap on top the books. The cut out section on the seat was designed for easy lifting and moving when needed. I hope the student got an A for making this sweet bench because she made it very sturdy and unique! I enjoyed painting it and I think it makes the perfect little seat by the window.

Thank you for stopping by and I invite you to return soon as I will be having a surprise GIVEAWAY to celebrate my 35th wedding anniversary and one year blogging anniversary. Till then, hope you are enjoying the Summer and as always, Many Blessings!~~~Celestina

Celestina, Just what I thought, when you disappeared for a few days! You had a paintbrush in your hands! It's all so beautiful. The bathroom is light and bright and feminine and invites a long soak!

No way have you been married 35 years! Must have been a child bride. ;-)

Enjoy your new room!

Hi Sweet Celeste! My goodness, I LOVE your fresh new guest bath! Great attention to details, too! I love the saucer under the soap dispenser, I ALWAYS love lamps in the bathroom!, & the trio of scrubbies in the shower on the compote! Wow, you pack a lot of pretty punch into a small space! Just divine, simply divine!

Will email you soon ~ we are expecting granddaughter for the weekend ~

Big Hugs,

Ele at abitofpinkheaven said...

Celeste, so pretty! What color paint did you use? Did you use a regular brush?...lots of questions. I always wonder how people get it to look like it was sprayed on, instead of brushed.

Secondhandrose said...

Celeste, I should try some painting in my bathroom...never thought it would come out so pretty. Nice job. Happy August!

Ruth Welter said...

Celestina, I stopped by to see if there was a new post from you and wow, you have a gorgeous new blog...simply love it, it is beautiful.

Miss chatting with you and hope life is treating you well. take care sweetie.

Holly said...

Oh Celeste your bath came out just beautiful. You have inspired me to get working on mine. The white looks just gorgeous on the cabinet and I love the soft green and pink on the shower curtain. All your little pretty things setting around are so pretty. I love the shelfs and peg rack on the wall. Oh I love it all, cross stitch towel is beautiful too. THe bench you painted is beautiful and this weeks studio work is fabulous.
Love you, Shirl
