It’s been two-and-a-half years since we completed the total transformation of our master bath, and we’re still saying to each other, remember when there was duct tape on the floor? It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come when we stop to think about it (again, I say, duct tape!), but we think it’s so important to celebrate these victories. After all, we’ve worked countless nights and weekends to get here! (Although, we may have blacked out the memory of laying all the tile.) Over the course of that renovation, we reconfigured the plumbing, pushed back a wall and maximized storage with every spare inch we had. To that point, it was one of the largest start-to-finish room overhauls we had completed, and it remains one of our favorites to this day. We wouldn’t change a thing.
Speaking of, we truly hadn’t changed a thing. All the permanent fixtures remain the same, sure, but we had yet to treat ourselves to fresh bath towels, a new candle or a plush bathmat. And although we consider ourselves pretty tidy, the vanity drawers were starting to become cluttered, and our tall, skinny storage was no longer being used to its fullest potential.
We recently teamed up with The Company Store to change that! Have you shopped with The Company Store? They’re one of our go-to shops for bedding and bath basics, but they also have a great selection of home decor (including that moss green velvet pillow in Tree House’s guest room that we heart so much!). Years of use and countless washings had our previous white towels feeling threadbare and looking dull, and we were overdue to upgrade them. Psst: We’re sharing the love at the bottom of this post!
No one should be surprised that we chose white again, but there’s something about white towels that feels so fresh, clean and luxurious, don’t you think? This time around, we picked two patterns – one for us, one for Lucy. For us, we landed on these quick dry towels, and for Lucy, we opted for these dots (so cute!). The quick dry towels are a light(er)weight material, which surprised us initially, but having used them for the last month, we’ve grown to love them! (They are the best for wrapping up wet hair.) Our sweet Lucy recently outgrew her newborn hooded towels, and we’ve since switched over to the dots exclusively. We’re biased, of course, but there is nothing more adorable than a giggly Luce swaddled up in her towel!
While we were upgrading, we took it as an opportunity to re-organize the bath and reassess the systems we had in place. Up until now, we had been stashing our extra towels in our laundry cabinets (around the corner and through our bedroom), but that was less than ideal, and we knew there had to be a way to fit them into our long and skinny storage bath closet:
We started by emptying every last thing out of the closet, and we tossed anything that was expired. We corralled medicine, first aid items, extra soap and cleaning supplies, and we divided them up between clear storage bins (eliminating any guesswork when you need to grab something quickly). If we had duplicates of anything – say, shampoo or body wash – we set those to the side to bring to Tree House. We don’t tend to overbuy products, but we were amazed at how much had gathered towards the back of that cabinet! Once everything was cleared out, we found ourselves with two empty shelves. Two. Two! The shelves in our cabinet are adjustable, so we played around with the heights until we were able to fit all the bins plus our spare rolled up towels. Much better!
But why stop there? (Guys, organizing is truly, honestly my very favorite thing.) We also emptied out our vanity drawers and by the time we were done sorting, we gained an empty drawer!
The Company Store has an assortment of extra large bath rugs, and we chose this pretty Rose Quartz rug, straying from our usual all-white. At 40″ wide, it’s substantial enough to fill the space underneath our double vanity, and Libby has been claiming it as her own ever since!
And the perfect cap to our master bath refresh? A fall scented candle.
