3 Easy Ways to Spruce Up a Bathroom

Are you a Pinterest Fail Mom, like me? If so, read below for 3 easy ways to spruce up a bathroom!

I will be the first to admit that I’m a full-time member of the Pinterest Fail Moms Club. I don’t have the best eye for home decor and I absolutely suck at DIY! This doesn’t stop me from attempting many Pinterest-inspired projects. But, at the same time, I’m fully aware of my status as a Pinterest Fail Mom. Any of you with me? No, just me? Haha.

Regardless of my sad attempts at Pinterest projects, I’ve found simple ways to add some color and style to different parts of our home. Here are 3 easy ways to spruce up a bathroom:

1.) Fresh Flowers

Who doesn’t love fresh flowers? A vase of your favorite blooms can brighten up any room. Our main floor bathroom is an interior room without any windows, so I’m always looking for ways to brighten up the room. Fresh flowers are a great way to add some color and cheer, without any fuss over a Pinterest DIY project!

2.) Potpourri Bowl

This bowl is from HomeGoods. I fill it with different bags of scented potpourri throughout the year. It’s a great way to keep the room fresh and adds an aesthetically pleasing element, too! Again, it’s Pinterest Fail Proof! Super easy to open a bag and fill the bowl with your favorite scents. Right now, ours is filled with a pumpkin spice, fallen leaves scent. [Seriously, how is summer over?!]

3.) Bathroom Stand

A simple bathroom stand is functional and an easy way to accessorize the room. We keeps ours stocked with extra hand towels, candles, tissues, and Charmin Essentials Soft TP!


We love the new Charmin Essentials Soft toilet paper! It’s soft, durable, and long lasting. Our potty-trained Threenager is a huge fan. Our one year old LOVES to pull down rolls and rolls of it! Softness is a huge factor in my choice of toilet paper and this is a total win in our house. Charmin Essentials Soft is actually one of two new products by Charmin®, designed to provide shoppers with toilet paper at a comparable price to the product they currently use.

Right now, Charmin is inviting shoppers to upgrade your Angel Soft® for Charmin Essentials Soft and Scott® 1000 for Charmin Essentials Strong. To participate, you can simply Tweet their TP swap out request to @Charmin using the hashtag #CharminEssentials and #Promotion, and Charmin will send you a free roll. You can find the T&Cs here.

    Fresh flowers is such a great way to spruce up any room! I have flowers from our yard on our kitchen table right now and I love the splash of color. Bonus points when you can go out to the garden to cut them. 🙂

  2. Ashley

    I’m totally a Pinterest Fail Mom, but these ideas I could do! I love the idea of fresh flowers in the bathroom, and will have to pick some up at Trader Joe’s today for that very purpose. This is great!

    Girlfriend, I seriously thought I was the only one whose DIY attempts were laughable. So glad I’m not alone! Fresh flowers always brighten my day, and I keep them in our downstairs bathroom at all times, too.

    Ha! I am part of the same Pinterest Fail group 🙂 They make it look so easy until we try and fail..LOL
    Love the simply tips to spruce up a bathroom..will try to add some of those although our guest bathroom is also the kid’s bathroom so flowers would not survive in that room a day if at all 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    Fresh flowers make all the difference! I love the way you threw this together! My bathroom is in serious need of some help. Maybe I should actually go look at my Pinterest boards hahaha

    I always try to have freshly cut flowers at home and an orchid in my bathroom! I think it makes the home more inviting! Thanks for the ideas – I will check Pinterest!

    I need a new stand for my toilet paper 😉 Thanks for the reminder. It’s always nice to have a fresh bathroom. I try to keep things off the counter so I purchased containers that had a suction cup to hang on the mirror at IKEA!

    These are such great ideas! I love the fresh flowers! I don’t think I have spruced our bathroom since we moved in, maybe it’s time! Especially since our tub is basically my mommy only hideaway!
