Beach Theme JarMy daughter has a beach themed bathroom and she wanted something decorative to put her mouthwash in, so I decorated this jar with some leftover bath salts I had used for a different craft and was about to throw away. Instead, I used them up for this project.
Concrete Soap HolderIf you need a soap holder, make one yourself. Cement and pebbles are great for this. You will spend quite a bit of money and get an original soap holder. Of course, you can just stick the pebbles into the cement, but then the tops of the pebbles are unlikely to be on the same level. I came up with the idea of first laying pebbles in a mold, and then pouring cement.
Beach In A BottleI use these in my beach themed bathroom. You can use any bottles as long as the opening is big enough for the shell to go through. Craft stores have sand in different shades, shells in different shapes/sizes and pebbles. You can get some from the beach but you should wash them so the bottle doesn't get cloudy, grow mold or bacteria.

Flour Flower Mesh CupI wanted to spruce up my plain looking mesh cup so I dipped some foliage from my garden in a flour/water paste to preserve their shape, let them dry, then did a bit of painting and gluing to put this all together. I'm so happy with it, it's pretty enough to go on my rather girly makeup table.

Custom Bathroom Door DesignMost people have an indoor bathroom with a standard size door. We wanted a tropical outdoor bathroom for our home. We made our bathroom out of lava rocks that we gathered in the river. The opening was too large for a standard door so we made our own. Recently I decided the door needed a brand new look so I gave it a designer paint job to fit the décor of my garden.
