Starting On The Master Bathroom


Here is my window originally.


OK, my windows in my new home are old.  The screens are all in the inside????  The windows are also roll out windows.  They will be replaced but not right now.

So, what do you do to make the small window up over the toilet look better but still let in light?

My solution!

I took the screen out and covered it with a small print off white lace panel.  I hot glued it to the metal frame.


Now, the fun part.  I started adding vintage doilies and lace trim.  I did use a fabric glue for all of the doilies and lace.  I was afraid with all of the heat coming thru that window, they might come loose.  We'll see.

The result:


I am just thrilled with the outcome.  The window is small and up very high so you can't see in it plus there are tree limbs in front of it.  But, now it looks so much better.  So now on to the rest of the pink bathroom.

I have decided for now to keep the pink tiles since there are so many other things I want to do right now.  So, I am toning down the pink and working with neutrals.

Now, to the entry project...


It is still a MESS!!  My walls were textured so they have been sanded, mudded and sanded and mudded and sanded........ you get the picture!  The dust is everywhere even tho every door way was taped off.  I have had to put a hold on this project since I injured my foot.  No ladders for me right now, but soon!!

Stay tuned.

Enjoy!

Judy

  2. A wonderful window covering, romantic, textural, fascinating. Hope your toe is less painful, sure gets in the way of doing what you planned to do.

    1. Thanks Joy! I'm really pleased with the window covering - it did just what I wanted it to do. The toe is much better and foot is almost back to normal.

      Have a great weekend.

  3. Love the lace window! Construction dust is the worst - it gets literally everywhere. Not fun to clean up, that's for sure.

    1. Thanks Mel - Don't think I'll ever get all of that dust up. I can't believe how far it went even with the doors all taped off.

      Have a good weekend.

  5. Judy, I love the lacy screen. You are so clever. Let your foot heal ...or it may take longer. I know you sure are not used to sitting still. :):) It's going to all be beautiful when you are done. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  7. That is neat! As a doily maker I am kind of sad to see a hand crocheted doily glued on anything, but it did turn out pretty. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. Thanks! It really did exactly what I wanted it to do. It looks good and filters the light, so it still lets a lot of light in.

  14. Hi Judy, Love the solution for privacy with the bathroom window. Adding the lace is so pretty.
    I know about all that dust when mud and sanding. Even taped off with plastic drapes it still goes everywhere. Take care and hope your foot is healing.
    Have a nice weekend. xo

    1. Thanks! It worked out so good! I'm so excited that it turned out like I wanted. Now, just to finish the rest of that bathroom. That dust is everywhere. I have a steam Shark which I'm hoping will help clean the terrazzo tile when I get through.

      Have a great day.

    1. Thanks Mary. I am very pleased with it. My foot has been doing very well except my sister and I have been hitting garage sales for two days so it's a little swollen. So, I'll rest for a few days. LOL

  17. Just love the lace effect on that window and the doilies... just so darling and vintage. I have a living room window that lets in the morning sun.... Right now there are some sheers on it but need a quick fix for something darker to keep out that morning (hot) sunlight! Any ideas other than finding a sheet or something? Don't have any fabric pieces big enough.. could maybe do a patchwork effect but had to use up pieces I want for something else. Humm.m.m.m. putting my thinking cap on.... Marilyn

  20. The small bathroom window looks really unique and pretty now, Judy. I like the lace idea. I am anxious to see your pink bathroom. I've always loved a bathroom in pink tile. You don't see that any more. :)

    It sounds like you're enjoying your home projects.

    1. Thanks Sheri! Pink is not my favorite but I've decided to work with it for a while. There are so many other things I want to do first before spending money on that bathroom which only I use.

      Have a good week.

  23. I really like what you did with the window. So charming! I have thought of sewing doilies to sheers, but have never gotten around to it. I like your idea a lot!

    1. Thanks! You might consider using fabric glue instead of sewing the doilies to the sheers. I use it a lot of the time.

    1. Thanks Stacey. I am just trying to get a few things finished up but I have a bad habit of jumping from one project to another. So, am concentrating on trying to get my small master bathroom redone with just paint, wallpaper and fabric. I love the window which was the first project in there so hope the rest goes as I hope it does. LOL

      Have a good week.

  26. Oh, Judy, your window turned out so pretty. Love the addition of the doilies. I did something similar in my kitchen to hide the driveway outside but used lace-looking contact paper. Not giving me the same effect at all!! Coming down shortly. Your's is just gorgeous..Happy Wednesday..Judy

    1. Thanks Judy. The initial layer of lace does not show up real well with all of the doilies but it still filters the sunlight but still lets in a lot of sunlight.
