Small Bathroom Makeover

I really wish I had "Before" pictures to share of our tiny bathroom. When we moved in several years ago, the bathroom was the epitome of post-war ranch decor, with pepto pink tile half way up the walls. The small space was lit by a dreary fluorescent light above the sink and there was also a full sized window in the middle of the shower wall. 

My parents had this neat vintage shaving ad that I wanted to frame but a custom job would have been pretty expensive. So I picked up an cheapy black frame and a sheet of turquoise crafting paper, which worked OK. Combined with the shaving mug and stand, the vintage print gives the bathroom a slight shaving theme. I'm keeping my eyes peeled for more vintage shaving ads or do-dads!
My favorite part of the bathroom is the white subway tile with gray grout. The dark grout is great because it hides dirt and soap scum. The Vanity mirror is from Home Goods, I think is was less than 30 bucks.

We removed the closet door and added thick butcher block shelves. I think this made the tiny space feel a little larger and also gave us some make shift counter space.
