3 Easy Ways to Spruce Up a Bathroom

This post was sponsored by Charmin as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. As always, all opinions are my own.

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 toilet paper.




Do you have any tips for a Pinterest Fail Mom like me? I’d love some advice on how to decorate the rest of our house!

    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. 🙂

  29. I love this idea, however I don’t think putting flowers in a bathroom is a good idea when you have no window and the room is humid. But I do like your idea. xx
