DIY Bathroom Makeover

I recently redid my half bathroom.

I swapped out the mirror and sink (the originals were badly damaged when the mirror fell... ghosties?), added a shelf and some accessories, and painted the walls a shade of blue gray:



And the before:



Zzzz.
Boring and ugly!



I realize it's nothing crazy fabulous but still a big improvement, I think!  Best of all, it was pretty cheap to do- I probably spent around $200 on the entire project.

Sink and mirror:  Home Depot.
Wall color:  Verdigris by Behr- so much prettier in person!
"Art":  Prints via Vintage Printable.
Shelf:  Target.
Ring dish:  Target, from their Shabby Chic line.
Vase and orchids:  The centerpiece from my table at my cousin's wedding reception, ha!  She actually made these- so pretty!
Soap pump:  KMart.

So there you have it... my cheap but sweet bathroom redo!

Naan Pizza


I made naan pizza for dinner on Friday night and it was a big hit with the family!  I used prepackaged naan that I purchased from the grocery store, and added my favorite ingredients.  Super easy and so, so good!  

To make the variety I have pictured here, just add chopped tomatoes and slices of fresh mozzarella, and top with fresh arugula.  Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and sprinkle with a pinch each of garlic powder, ground sea salt, ground black pepper, dried basil, and dried parsley.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes, or until the mozzarella cheese has melted.  You can bake it on a pizza stone, a cookie sheet, or even right on the oven rack (add a tray underneath to catch any drips.)

Enjoy!
