“No Sandy Feet” … A Coastal Cottage Bathroom

My beachy bedroom makeover is not quite ready for the big reveal yet so I’d like to invite you into the other beachy room in my home…
my coastal cottage bathroom.
Our motto here is…

There is nothing like a nice relaxing bath to soothe away the stresses of the day.  So come on in and enjoy a long, hot soak in the whirlpool tub.

I’m sure you would like to soak longer but you’d better grab one of those fluffy towels and dry off before your fingers and toes start looking like prunes!

I know you don’t want to look like a prune when you stop in to visit the other participants in  the Beach Party celebration at
The Shabby Chic Cottage

Hi Shari,
This is my first visit to your blog. I've really enjoyed looking around at your posts. You have a beautiful blog! I love, love, love your bathroom make over! Anything beachy is for me. I noticed you live in Tampa. My husband and I frequently visit that area and love it. We wish we could be there full time. I'll be back to see your beachy bedroom make over! Have a great week...Kathy
