I bought this adorable hanging planter from Ikea, but can’t decide where to put it! I thought the colors would go great in the office, but with the vaulted ceilings it’s not working out.

Once my generous cousin does my taxes, I’m hoping to re-do the first floor bathroom with my returns. Paying off student loans or redoing the bathroom? Easiest. decision. ever. Not really, but I’m 90% sure it’s happening. Maybe this cute planter could hang from the ceiling in front of the window in there.

The bathroom needs a new floor, paint and removal of the tiled walls. They are cracked and sunken and ugly. We’ve lived with it for almost 3 years. The toilet, sink and tub are newer, and the tile in the shower has been updated. This is what I’m thinking:

Similar floor, paint and wall coverings. Not sure on the paint, but I’m loving the moody grey-blues. This 2 inch marble hex tile is so dreamy, but would probably cost $500 alone. AmIinsane? I want to tackle all the this with my dad. I’ve been dying to learn to tile, everyone else is doing it!

The paneling will hopefully make it easier to hide the mess we’ll remove off the walls. I’m sure there will need to be some patching of drywall, especially if I want to achieve this desired look:

Lastly, if time and money allow, I’d like to make the ceiling above the shower as high as the ceiling in the rest of the room. Not much light gets into the shower because the opening now is so small. Hopefully this will make the room look bigger and I will be able to buy a longer shower curtain as well. A new mirror will be in order, and maybe a new light. I’d love a pendant… I’ll keeping stalking Pinterest for ideas.

I’m hosting 2 showers at my house this spring. It’d be a miracle if this was complete for at least one of them!

Do you think I’ve exceeded my tax return yet?
