Design on a Dime...Kinda

I've been trying to be creative with our apartment - adding touches here and there to make it feel and look like our home, while still abiding by the rules of our management. To paint a whole room we need to pay a $50 fine, so I try to do as much as possible without painting every wall. Right now, I'm working on our hall bathroom. It was YUCK! say the least. 

I've finally had some time to work on it this week and $25 later, this is what I have! :)

I got the Cotton Ball & QTip "holders" from Target at the $1 Spot and painted them. The basket with washcloths I was able to get for less than a dollar on clearance after Easter. The "Splish Splash" Bathtub frame was a gift from one of Elliot's showers. I got the 3 shadowboxes at a garage sale for free and painted them gold. Check out The Idea Room and Martha for instructions on etching glass like I did on these shadowbox frames. And the pictures and mod podged paper in them cost $2.49.
I know, I're thinking, "Dang! That's only $5.49." Well, you see that polka dot shower curtain? That was my splurge. It was $17 at Target.
I still need to do a couple more things to a wall and a shelf, but I'm getting close! :)

Thanks for the nice comment! I had to come and check out your etching project. It looks great! I love the idea of etching onto a picture frame.
