La Petite Loo

Hi Everyone!

Wouldn't if be fun to begin this new and creative week with a little riddle?

Yes?

Okay, ready?

What can you make with one of these.....


(An old wire basket I had laying around)
...and one of these?...

( 24 inch wooden candlestick, a thrift store find)
Ta daaaaa!...


A petite toiletry and towel stand...

Hubby helped bring my vision to life. He used a couple of screws and a very creative way to marry this two pieces together.
I just love it! And it looks awesome in my newly re-decorated petite loo...
What do you think?

You have a great fortune, Ana.a lot of luck (and here in Italy called "backside") to find so many good things and maybe a few dollars. in italians stores are just things to throw away old or broken ... and still at high prices. I was impressed that beautiful sofa you've got for free. again congratulations for the beautiful home and your creativity. a big hug

Have an EGGS-TRA blessed Easter ~

This is lovely and something this Sea Witch would use in her bathroom too. So creative ou are. Enjoyed your comment about laughing into asthma due to I Love Lucy. I sooooo understand. Blessings to you and those you love. Sea Witch

Gina said...

I love it! You are so creative. You managed to make something completely functional yet pretty to look at. You amaze me Ana, you really do!

Willow said...

Another clever idea. I would have never came up with that. Just a beautiful idea.

June said...

You are a little genius Ana sweet!!! I love this! hmmm, I'm trying to think if I have anything here I could do that with? Our shower head has the wrong slant for one of those hangy thingies, and I hate bending over to get the shampoos and soap, razor,etc,etc...this would be great!
sending hugs...

C'est Moi, Julie Marie said...

Hi Ana,
Next time you go thrifting you gotta call me okay? I love what you've done with those two, looks great. For some reason your main picture (of the post) doesn't show up on my sidebar, do you have any idea why, does this happen to others?
Have a great day!

Pero que idea tan bonita Ana!!
Por cierto, el otro día paseando por la urbanización donde vivo, encontré en la basura un precioso pie para lámpara de hierro forjado y claro está, fui a buscar el coche y lo recogí (medirá casi 1'50m de alto). Tendré que mandarte una foto a ver si me das alguna idea!!!
Besos

Dawn said...

Happy Easter,
Dawn

What a great combination. Those pieces look like they were made for each other.

Looking forward to exploring your blog more.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Yes this is a cool project! I love how this looks. The bathroom is pretty too!

Diane Writes said...

Hello Ana! I discovered your blog from Savvy Southern Style. I am a participant too. I love what you did. The holder looks so elegant and posh!

I am enjoying browsing at your blog. I hope we could develop a connection by following each others blogs. Have a great week!

Shelia said...

Hi Ana! Oh, this is so pretty! You're so creative and it looks just perfect in your petite loo! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Sue said...

Your two very different items created a fantastic toiletry holder, Ana. You really were thinking on this project! I like that cute little bench that I see peeking out against the wall. What a perfect place to store the extra tissue rolls.
Thanks for stopping by- I'll be checking out more of your blog. :-) Sue

This is great! I love the entire thing! I need to make one of these right away....okay, not today, but tomorrow for sure! I would put all of my "guest stuff" in my guest bathroom and my dogs will stop tearing up the cutesy wrapper for my handmade soap....I hate it when the dogs do that!
