Embrace a Glass Menagerie
"One quick way we love to update a bathroom is to hang something waterproof on the wall so you don't have to worry about an expensive art print getting ruined by the steam. You could add a shelf with glass canisters of cotton balls and cotton swabs or hang floating glass vases from the wall. You can also add style to the top of your toilet tank with a ceramic tray full of pretty things like soaps, a piece of faux coral or a shell ball." — Sherry and John Petersik, authors of Young House Love: 243 Ways to Paint, Craft, Update & Show Your Home Some Love
