The Ripple Effect {Master Bath}

When I shared the change to the ginormous tub in the master bath I told you there had been another small change, too. You know how one thing leads to another. It is the ripple or domino effect. It always seems to happen around here.

After adding all this white to the side of the tub it made the gray color in the back of the hutch look off so......

I painted over the shutter gray milk paint in the back of the hutch with white to brighten up the hutch and have it flow better with the tub.

This shows how it brightened it up adding the white.

Of course after the paint was dry and it was time to put things back and they got changed up a bit.

I love the added texture with the sea fans. I like using items from the ocean in here. The ocean is very calming to me. I could use a trip to the beach.

Vintage linens and French soap sit in a vintage ironstone chamber pot. I bought this pot way before I even knew what ironstone was. Glad I kept it all these years. I think I bought it in the late 70's.

I added our grandchildren's pictures in here.

For any new readers this hutch has been through many changes over the years. This was Mr. Savvy's late mother's and it has to stay in our home so I am glad that we can use it in here for extra storage. His mother passed away when he was fifteen and this is the one piece he was able to keep and I am honored to have this piece she loved in our home. 

If you need extra storage in your bathroom add a piece of furniture like this if you have room. Thank goodness we do since we forgot to add a linen closet when we built the house. Oops!

Be sure and come back tomorrow for my guest poster's favorite room.

  2. The hutch makeover looks great! I love a piece of furniture in a bathroom. It instantly cozies up what could be a sterile space. Love how you accessorized it too. I bet that pot you bought a long time ago is a chamber pot. Which is perfect for a bathroom....LOL!

  4. The white in the back of the hutch is perfect Kim. I love pieces of furniture in the bath. When we remodel the master bath in the house we just moved into, I hope to put one of my hutches in there. Fingers crossed that it will fit. That project is down the road a little though.

  5. I love this little cabinet. I copied you and took the doors off of the one my mom gave me that's similar. It's getting a paint job this week too! So envious of your spacious bathroom :)

  10. wish we had room for such a wonderful piece in our bath. I'd much rather have a great hutch than a standard built in cabinet. Love how you have it displayed!

  12. It looks wonderful.
    Question, why the Miss Mustard Seed wax over ASCP? Is it better? Just wondering....
    I am in the process of painting the backs of our bookcases...French Linen....it is amazing how something that seems so "trivial" can make such a difference! (take a look at my blog, http://wildoakdesigns.blogspot.com)

  17. The hutch looks wonderful with the white items added, so much more fresh and crisp...I roll bunches of white towels and everyone always comments on such a small thing always makes for the spa look

  18. I really love that hutch in your bathroom. The best part is the history attached to it. That was really young for Mr.S to lose his Mom-what a great piece to remember her with-and it serves perfectly seeing as you have NO linen closet in the bathroom!;>) Oooops- xo Diana

  35. Yes, the white interior is a much cleaner look to complement the white wall covering, Kim. The hutch is such a nice fit for this room. Maybe it was a good thing that youmforgotmthe linen closet! :-)

  37. So pretty! Yes, one thing does lead to another,sometimes I hesitate to make a change because I know that's true! However, I do love to make changes, even if it's rearranging the furniture, it makes the room feel brand new.

  39. Kim,
    How wonderful that your family piece is getting continued use in your bathroom. Painting the inside white really does make all the decorative items stand out. Makes me want to do the same to a hutch that I have.

  40. This is a fantastic piece and I love the fact that it is from family. The change in the paint does brighten the piece, very pretty.

  41. You crack me up Kim. Love the piece, and I agree, the white does make a nice difference. And if you change your mind, or your bathroom (which you will eventually) you can always paint over it again, right? :) Have a great weekend!

  43. Good call, Kim. You're right about the white looking whiter now. And of I course I love your styling of the hutch. I'd love to be able to have a piece like this in my bathroom.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the white! I'm getting the itch to start some painting projects around here!

  45. I like the white in the back of the hutch better. What a nice piece for your husband to have of his mother's.

  46. I love how the smallest changes can really make the biggest difference. Love the white!

    Have a great weekend Kim!

  47. It's just gorgeous, Kim! DD2 just remodeled her MBath and although she also reclaimed space from the replacement of an enormous tub, she doesn't have room for a hutch or cabinet.

    I hope you'll come see My Daughter's Master Bath Redo - #83 at Met Monday.

  49. Kim,
    When the ripple effect happens around my house I just ride the wave or else I get caight up in the undertow. A matter of fact my family encourages me to ride the wave cause they don't want to get caught in the undertow either! Hehehe :)
