DIY: Bathroom Decor

For my mom's birthday, we decided we would treat her to a spa-like bathroom decoration, in her new bathroom in Charlottesville.  We ended up only taking one after picture, which doesn't showcase all the new accessories we added, but you'll have to imagine it was I describe it.

Here is the before:  nice little bathroom, little chandelier sconce on either side of the mirror (which both my parents have commented is awesome for shaving/makeup application.  Walls are painted a pleasant grey-green colour, which we kept.
Here is the after, or at least as much as I could get into the picture:

We put up those class shelves, and bought her nice little crackled glass accessories.  Then we bought new grey and white towels, which you can see on the shelf, and the hand towel next to the sink.  We finished it off with a grey fuzzy bathmat and a nice clean white fabric shower curtain with a grey grosgrain ribbon panel detail.  We also bought wicker storage baskets that fit in the shelf unit you can't see, opposite the toilet.

A closeup of the shelves and accessories.
I really like how it turned out - clean, modern, and a little luxurious.  And Mom likes it, so really thats all that matters.
