To Decorate or Not to Decorate

I’m stumped. Remember back when I had spring cleaning wishlist? Well, that was short lived. It took about 4 months to cross two things off of that list (numbers 1 and 2, if you’re curious). I’d like to continue making progress toward finishing up that list, but I’m torn about what to do with number 5, my desire to find a new home for my make up, which currently sits in a small box on top of our bathroom counter. You see, the issue is bigger than just finding more storage – I could easily buy one of those over-the-toilet shelving units. The issue is one of making small changes to a room when we have bigger plans for the space down the line.

For instance, this is the 3/4 bath off of our bedroom:


Outdated. Boring. In desperate need of a facelift. But, with wedding plans fully underway, we don’t necessarily want to part with a big amount of money to overhaul our bathrooms (yes, both of them need a makeover). Ideally, we’d like to DIY the bathrooms with new vanities, tile flooring, travertine showers, modern water-conserving toilets and additional storage. Not exactly a simple weekend project.

But, as my wish list suggests, I hate when things don’t have “their place”. My make-up should not just sit on the sink counter. I want to put it away somewhere.

So, what do I do? Do I give it some minimal effort now – some paint, a new mirror, some storage – or put up with an ugly, limited bathroom for the next year until I can do it right?
