DIY Shabby Chic Bathroom Accessories

Creating a certain look for a room can be as simple as the accessories that you choose to decorate with.

To get a shabby chic look, you would want to use items that are a combination of worn, vintage, rustic and romantic.  Some things will naturally fit that style and others will need to be tweaked just a bit.

Regardless of what you decorate with, you can also take some of these items and repurpose them into a functional accessory to use in your bathroom.

I love this type of two for one DIY project!

For example, I took an old painters ladder, that was layered with many colors of paint, and gave it a fresh coat of white paint and then distressed it.  It now serves as a stool in my bathroom as well as shelving for bath supplies.

And, the cream and sugar set used for make-up brushes and other supplies here.

A mason jar soap dispenser also makes a quick and easy diy project for a shabby chic bathroom.

This bathroom shelving unit was made from none other than rustic wine crates!  The simple look is perfect with all of the white accessories.  I love the inserted shelves with holes cut out to fit storage jars.

Instead of hanging a regular mirror above your bathroom sink, hang a vintage medicine cabinet!  Don’t worry about painting over the old patina since that is the look that makes it charming.
