Old wood and a rope hanger give this gorgeous shelf a wonderfully rustic quality. This is a simple DIY project if you want to make it yourself. Just build a shelf from reclaimed wood and then add a thick rope to the top for hanging. I love this for storing extra rolls of toilet paper or even makeup and other essentials. I got the idea from this one on Etsy, and it’s under $30.
Bathrooms can pose a challenge to a lover of home design – to most of us on a budget, they’re an expensive proposition to overhaul, and it can be difficult to justify a remodel if everything’s functioning. But how to decorate the room?

Then you just distress it and turn it into a fabulous farmhouse towel hanger.

You need magazines in the bathroom, right? Why not store them in this lovely DIY rustic looking magazine rack. You build this right onto the wall so you don’t need any additional space for it and it holds so many magazines and books! This is such a simple build and you can make it from wood that you have left over from other projects if you happen to have any on hand.
Start and end your days in royal fashion with an eggplant-colored backdrop and faded lighting. Split the wall color with a lighter wainscotting, like this ash grey, to keep the room from feeling too dark. A white bathtub, sink and toilet give the room fresh elegance without disturbing the overall aura. To tie it all together, incorporate silver accents, such as this mirror and chandelier.

If you want to create a new look in your bathroom, but want to avoid a complete interior overhaul, consider tweaking your color scheme and decor. A few simple changes can create an entirely new vibe without going over budget. Design a bathroom with color and styles that truly speak to you. Since it’s the room you spend time getting ready in the morning and preparing for bed, it’s important to create a space the boosts your energy and offers you a quiet respite from your busy schedule.

These uniquely textured walls help break up the blush pink so the solid color doesn’t appear too jarring. To pare down the color even more, introduce neutral browns, grays and whites in the cabinetry, backsplash or floor. This stone forges a natural look, but if you’re looking to create a softer feel, opt for white tiles. If your renovation is lacking color once it’s complete, try painting your mirror frame with a pop of color for that final touch.
This DIY mason jar storage system is all you need to keep your bathroom organized, and it is perfect for adding a little farmhouse style, too. You make lids for your mason jars, complete with knobs so that you can easily lift the lids to get to the contents. The entire thing is nestled in a rustic looking wooden box that you can keep on a shelf or right there on the back of the toilet. I really love rustic mason jar decorating projects!
You can add white color and light to existing bathroom decor with white accessories, ceramic tiles, curtains, glass and stainless steel shelves, a towel heater and shiny fixtures. White color, light fixtures design, a window and a large mirror (or two mirrors) create radiant light and more spacious small bathroom decor. (Modern bathroom design trends for 2011)
