There is a new project going on over here (surprise I know)!! Our master bath is getting some more love. 🙂 I decided to makeover the vanity area, finally. I wanted to update the cabinet door pulls. I thought about buying new, but then I decided I could make the old look like new for a fraction of the cost.
Here is the finished product :)!! Aren’t they perfect??
When I was out shopping around for possible replacements, I spotted these at Hobby Lobby.
And it was then that I knew I could do this myself with the pulls I already had.
Here is where I started.
The bottom is before and the top is after I spray painted them with Rustoleum’s satin nickel. (same color I used on the lamps in the master bedroom) I bought the one that is paint + primer and I love it. It coats so well and it has such a great finish. I chose the satin nickel to match the other fixtures is the bathroom area.
After giving them a coat of paint,
I simply wrapped jute around the middle of the pull, gluing here and there to make it secure. I decided I wanted to mimic the pattern I made on the lamps in my master bedroom redo.
And ended up with this look.
And here is a sneak peek of them on the vanity. 🙂
Fun, casual, and a hint of beachy!! Looovvveee!!!
A few more things to finish up for this quick and budget friendly makeover before I share it all!!

Hey everyone!! I love summer :). We have been lazy lately, and I have been loving it!! My house – not so much – what a mess!! I should get on that today…maybe. Ha!! Anyone else bein’ lazy these summer days??
Today I wanted to share with you a super simple project that gives just a nod to the beach. While hubby and I were on vacay, we did a little local shopping. We found this adorable home shop where I took lots of inspiration photos. One of the first things I saw was this cuteness. (pardon the blurry phone pic)
Cute but not too themey right? And, something I knew would be easy to recreate.
So, when we got home, I did just that. I started with an empty foam soap bottle, which I had already removed the labels from, and some of the tiny sea shells we had collected on our trip.
Next, I rinsed out the bottle and rinsed the sand of the shells. Then, I dropped the shells into the bottle.
Then, I moved on to making the soap. Yep, that’s what I said, making the soap. Have you ever refilled your foaming soap yourself? It’s really easy and so much cheaper!!
1. Add regular hand soap – your choosing – just about 1/2 or so in the bottom – no exact measuring needed.
2. Add water – fill the rest of the bottle with water, leaving a little bit of room at the top.
3. Shake gently to combine the soap and the water.
The secret to the foaming soap is in the pump, not the soap!! So, now you have foaming soap at a fraction of the cost!
The seashells at the bottom are just a cute added bonus don’t you think?? I love it!! Although, next time I buy soap, I will buy clear soap – then my shells will really shine :).
Thanks for stopping by today!! I’m off to do some
