Old Wood Frames

Hey my friends!
On a trip to my husbands’ Aunts’ farm in Texas, guess what we found?
An old shack, covered in wonderful, gorgeous wood!
So, we took the shack apart to use the wood for projects.
And here is our first project reveal:
My personal carpenter, Mr. Buckets of Burlap,
framed our bathroom mirrors using the old wood.
Let me show you around the master bathroom…
What used to be plain boring mirrors, 
is now kind of fancy with a great patina.
To add a touch of spring, some fresh blooms from my popcorn plant.
A little white tray holds bathroom essentials on the counter.
I got this cross at LaurieAnna’s Shoppe last week.
It’s holding some of my favorite jewelry.
The mirror view of the other side of the bathroom…
The bathtub area got a little sprucing up with new simple curtains.
My vintage scale found a new home.
And here’s a view into the “potty room”
I wish I had a before photo to show you what a difference
the old wood frames made for this room.
My carpenter always comes through for me πŸ™‚
Thanks for hosting these great parties, ladies πŸ™‚
Thanks for taking time to visit and I appreciate each of you for following along.
Have a wonderful day πŸ™‚

    P.S. I'm starting to get the feeling that you share my affection for old scales! Hubster's not wild about that affection…they're too heavy he says! :))

  17. The wood was a great find and really adds some personality to your mirrors. I have an oval tub like that, now I just need to find an awesome scale. Great accessorizing.

    I also love the cross jewelry holder. I am in dire need of a jewelry organizing system right now, I have SO much it's hard to keep it nice without it getting tangled!

  32. ShantyGirl says:

    Becky this room is beautiful, I love framed mirrors and all the lovely white touches, I like the fact that you have some color to your home very cozy and warm!

  33. Great job! I love the taupe and white together!

  34. Gorgeous. I just love how peaceful and relaxing your bathroom looks- perfect when a mommy needs to get away for a bubble bath:) I have one question- when you are collecting old chippy wood, don't you worry about lead in the paint? I love the look of chippy items that are authentic (not "made" chippy by vendors, etc) but I do worry about safety with 5 little ones around.

  35. Ann says:

    The two mirrors over the vanity is beautiful. So much character in one small room. The scale is lucious. Everything is beautiful.

  36. Angela says:

    That wood is wonderful. What a great find!

  37. GET OUT! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the rustic and simple feel of this room. Makes me wanna take a bubble bath right now. Well done girlie!

    Stop on over for a visit to see some of my spring freshening at my junky cottage when you get a chance.

    You've been featured at Mel's Cabin blog for making a beautiful bath that would look good in her cabin!

  50. Laura says:

    I couldn't believe it when I saw your post. We have a dark hallway that is not huge. Recently my husband placed a very large mirror on one wall, for obvious reasons. I have been thinking hard about what to use for a frame and on Tuesday found old floorboards stacked by the bins at work. Of course I loaded them all into my car, after checking it was ok, and plan to make a frame for the mirror out of them. I hope it looks half as nice as yours when finished.

  51. I just love your bathroom! the colors -everything!
    so carzy for the finish on your mirrors!!


  52. Brenda Kula says:

    I adore those mirror frames! Oh so clever you two are!

  53. Stephanie says:

    LOVE the framed mirrors!! That carpenter of yours is a keeper.

  54. Anne says:

    The white and camel look fantastic together! And I love the worn wooden frames… that must have been a lot of fun, finding that old shack!

  55. shelia says:

    Love the mirrors! The whole bath looks great, could you tell me what paint color you used, I'm in the process of redoing our bath and painting over wallpaper!! I'm afraid but it must be done!
