Sprucing up the guest bathroom

  I am not the most creative person, okay who I am kidding, I'm not creative at all.   However, thanks to pinterest I have found some really cute ideas for our home and today I tired a couple of them out.  I'm not a big fan of clutter and like to keep things clean and simple, especially in the bath
rooms. So I took a couple of real simple ideas and was able to add a little spunk to our guest bathroom.  I even got the hubby involved, putting his new power drill to use!
  I love clear containers.  For my wash cloths I took a large glass jar, that can be purchased at Wal-mart or Target, and individually rolled up the towels and place them into this jar.  REALLY SIMPLE, but adds a little uniqueness and cuteness to the bathroom.

My second little project was to make a soap dispenser out of a mason jar.  Another clear container concept, that I thought would be cute and a little different.  This is where my husband got to use his new power drill.
Another really simple project in that you drill a hole in the lid, large enough for the pump to slide through.  Once you have the hole drilled slide your pump through the hole (I used the pump from a Soft Soap bottle), add a little glue to hold the pump in place, and your done.  Add the soap to the jar, screw on the lid and you have a new soap dispenser.  I have seen the jars painted, which was also cute.  I think I will add a second jar filled with hand soap!

Again, the projects were super simple and took maybe 30 minutes at the most to throw together, they added a simple touch to my very boring guest bath and gave me a little sense of accomplishment when I was done.  Taking baby steps in  finding my creative side.
