I decided to start with the bathroom. It isn't a super large space, but it is a fairly comfortable size. Besides a hook on the door there is no where to hang towels or face cloths. I decided to take the white wall opposite the vanity and using an image I had come across online, create a towel holder! My main concerns were that it had to hold at least 3 hooks (one for clothing, one for a face cloth and one for a large towel) but at the same time not impede the door from opening. This was the perfect fit!
For $2 I purchased a tree decal from the dollar store. It peels off easily and adheres to the wall safely not ruining the paint at all.
*lesson learned: do not pat it down/ smooth it out until you are completely sure that it is in the exact location that you need it to be, peeling it off to readjust risks ruining the decal!
I was initially planning on purchasing contact paper at the local craft store and drawing out a tree myself then cutting it out and adhering it to the wall. The decal was a significantly easier method, but if you are unable to find one, contact paper is a great alternative!
I placed the tree high enough so that the towels wouldn't lay on the heater or drag onto the floor.
Then, using $2 ceiling hooks from the local hardware store, I hung three on "branches" of various heights. They screwed into the wall fairly easily
*lesson learned: just be sure you're going into the actual wall! knock to make sure it isn't hollow!
There you have it! A cheap way to make a stark white wall functional and aesthetically pleasing!
Here's the link to the source I found for this idea with a link underneath the image to Emily Elizabeth Interior Design. I initially found the image on Pinterest and after some detective work was able to track it back to here! I simply had the image to go on, and decided on the decal and ceiling hooks myself!
