If you’ve been following me on Facebook, you’ve seen pictures of my newly remodeled bathroom.  I haven’t shared them here for no particular reason; except that I didn’t want to bore everyone to death with my elation of finally having a new bathroom.  Today I’m going to share one of the photos because I’ve worked on a bathroom project and I want you to see the area where I have some things sitting.

New Vanity

Okay so this is my new vanity area that shows all the rubbed oil bronze fixtures that I went with.

New medicine cabinet and light

Even the custom-built base for the new light fixture was spray painted with bronze spray paint.  The mirror actually set the tone for the entire bath.  I told my builder that I wanted a farm house feel . . . white and that I loved the look of oil rubbed bronze.  He found the mirror and then everything else came together from there.

Anyhoo, I ended up purchasing some green glass jars and dispensers from Target that had a vintage feel to them but it didn’t take us long to realize that visitors might have a problem with the dispensers sitting on the sink counter.


As you can see, the lotion and the soap look identical.  Only Mallory and I knew what was the lotion (the taller) and the soap (smaller).  I told her I would make us some labels and I’ve been looking for different images on the internet that I could use.  While working with ICE Resin® the other night a brain storm hit . . . and YES, it did hurt!  So I made the tags that you see above.

Both are made from Spellbinders® Media Mixáge™ Line silver square bezels that I painted with the same bronze spray paint used on the wood base for the light fixture.    Pretty clever I thought!

Both have a square of Graphic 45 Old Curiosity Shoppe paper die cut with the coordinating Spellbinders square die template (which was sealed with glossy accents) and glued into the bezel.


I die cut a capital “L” (lotion) from chipboard that I painted with the wall paint (same color as the walls) and applied some DecoArt Crackle Medium.  Once dry, some Ten Seconds Studio Bronze VerDay Paint was rubbed over the crackle with the excess wiped away.  The “L” was then glued onto the paper in the bezel.

Beads were added to the bottom of the bezel just for some more decoration.  Of course, I learned after I made both sets of beads that the one for the soap needed to be shorter . . . go figure . . . it’s a shorter dispenser.


I LOVE the vintage distress look of the “L” and the “S” with the crackle and the VerDay rubbed on to show all the crackle.  It’s perfect for my country/farmhouse bath and all the other antiques I’ve added over the last few months.


The bezel for the soap dispenser was made the same way as the other . . . except that I die cut the letter “S” for soap.


As you can see from this photo, I had to remove three of the beads for the soap dispenser . . . but that’s okay . . . it still matches the other.

Both bezels were tied to the dispensers with seam binding that I didn’t care got wet or dirty.  To me it will look all the better when the ribbon shows a little wear and tear.

I’ll devote another post to some of the antiques and other goodies I’ve added very soon.  I still have a few things to finish up before I’m ready for that!  Oh and before I forget, the dispensers sit in the corner of the vanity to fill up all the space!

In the meantime, thanks for stopping by today!

  5. Fabulous!! LOVE the idea of this!! Those bottles look so cool and such a great way to use those bezels! The letters are awesome!!!

  6. very nice. but I thought the L and S were for Lance and Sherry.

  7. What a cute idea Sherry and they turned out beautifully. Wish my bathroom looked that neat!!

  8. Clever and definitely cute idea you used for the bottles, which are gorgeous. Your bathroom looks beautiful!

  9. Bathroom remodel looks wonderful Sherry. So glad you shared it with us. Love your fixtures!! And those bottles really turned out adorable. Makes me wish I could remodel the girls bathroom, which is also the guest bath. It is in need of a makeover. Soon I hope.

  10. Sherry- these bottles are AMAZING and they match the new bath perfectly! If you happen to have any extras let me know, I could find a home for them. And we warned you that bezels are addictive = )

  11. What a great idea! Love the white cabinet with the bronze fixtures. We have just started on the process of remodeling our 1964 bathroom. So many decisions!!

  12. Those jars are the perfect finishing touch to go with your beautiful new bathroom. It’s such a messy process remodeling a bath that a person deserves some new pretties to accent it when it’s done. We are almost done bath 1 and rounding the far turn on bath 2 (We decided to make two out of one) I can’t wait to go splurge on some pretty towels and knick knacks! I will have to remember your pretty labels.
    Thank you for sharing! 🙂
