My Girl Room

One of the beautiful things about marriage is that you get to share everything. Everything is "ours". That is wonderful and beautiful as you begin to build a life together. However, the idea of having a space all to myself is very compelling. I even read somewhere that it is the best type of gift to give someone with my temperament:)

So when we moved into our new apartment, my husband was so sweet and told me I could have 1 room just for me: the master bathroom. I didn't expect how excited I would get when he told me this. A room all to myself? That I could decorate just how I want it without thinking about compromising for the sake of his masculinity? I was very excited.

So I started by finding some 2nd hand treasures for the bathroom. It wasn't until I found a pretty lace shower curtain at the thrift store that I realized I was going to make my room over the top girlie. I NEVER would have done this before. I am quite girlie, but I have never been a super pink frilly girl. And isn't it funny how society looks down on those girls anyway?

Well I decided I'm going to allow myself to be as feminine as I want to be, and apparently that is very feminine. It's taken me months to find the perfect decor for my bathroom and I am so happy with what I've come up with. Yesterday I found the perfect towels, which I've been saving up to buy, and now they are mine! So here is my girlie room:
It's a small room, and here is the entrance from our bedroom

I wish the counters weren't ugly, but I distracted with a pretty pink diffuser, faux cala lilies (my favorite flower), an amish candle in a pretty glass jar, a small picture on the wall from a thrift store, and a power blue soap dispenser and cup.

Towels were the hardest to find. I got these at Target. When I was buying them, the checker said "wow you must have a very understanding husband". And I do:)

I love my mini lamp with a rose on the side, serenity prayer candle, and rose pictures. All are 2nd hand.

New pink rugs, and a pretty lace shower curtain. Eventually I will get a light blue curtain to hang behind the lace one for it to show through.

I love to fellowship with others and hear what they have to say. I would ask, however, that you be mindful of what you write and try to be uplifting and respectful. Thank you for sharing!
