SPD: BEAUTIFY YOUR GUEST BATHROOM



pssstt: do you guys ever go and see what everyone else links up below? I sure hope so. Because it's pretty awesome and you can meet new friends. do it!

Hi friends! So, as you know (I mean you missed me, right?) I was out of commission last week for the link-up due to being on vacation, but nevertheless I'm back with another stamp...er pin...of approval for yet another Pinterest project. I actually made this a month or so ago, but forgot to post about it and since it received so many comments via instagram I thought it was good enough to share!

It's one of those extremely simple (and I mean extremeelllyyy simple) projects, but good enough. Those are the best type of projects, right? You might even have all these things in your own home already, so that's exciting.

I'm actually kind of bitter I didn't find/think of this earlier...travel size items for the guests in your home in a pretty apothocary jar?! RIGHT ON.

Such a cute way to dress up a guest bathroom that is also functional! Bonus points right there.

What you need:
+Apothecary jar (any size, any shape-just be sure to get a wide enough opening at the top to fit the items! I've found the best ones at TJ Maxx)
+Travel size toiletries


Steps:
We don't really need steps for this one, now do we? Simply search around your house for any and all travel sized items (or go to the dollar section of any store) and fill your jar with them for your guests to enjoy, like so....


Are you tapping your head like, "why didn't I think of this?!" I did!
Pin away so you don't forget about this awesome idea.

Also, as you can see, I like to store q-tips and cotton balls in little mason jars. I love how clean and easy this looks in our guest bathroom and that now our guests can see what they need and get to them easily!

*tutorial for framing a standard mirror: found here (from one of my past SPD projects)

In conclusion..... Katie tested, Pin approved.

What do you think about this crazy simple project?!
Link-up below and join the fun!

  11. Such a good idea. I almost bought a jar at Michaels a couple weeks ago but I couldn't think of where it would fit in my bathroom. I never even thought of the guest bathrooms. I am totally doing this!

    Thanks for hosting again. You ladies help keep me crafty! :)

  19. I don't have a guest bathroom, but I've put all the travel sized products together in a basket and placed it in our bathroom closet, so people will have it if they spend the night.
