Shabby Chic Ireland - Bathroom Accessories

Here are some ideas to decorate your bathroom for that spa treatment Shabby Chic look.
Galvanized steel items looks extremely good in the bathroom for that old style look.

This is a fantasic alternative to a normal basin.

In a previous blog I mentioned that it's a good idea to pour everyday items such as shampoo in old style holders.

I have added some labels so that you can make your own labels on your glass jars.




Think of different shaped glass bottles look at this one it looks like a vinegar bottle.
Here in Ireland chariry shops and second hand furniture stores can have great finds.


Look for unusual finds such as this suitcase, wooden shelf with labels.

Items can also be placed in nice cotton bags.

Baskets such as these look very good in a bathroom.

Altough I will always prefer glass to plastic it is also possible to get pretty plastic holders.


I have a thing about hand made soaps and think that they must be displayed- look at the use of a fruit bowl for the nicely wrapped soaps.

The more hand made the soap looks the better.

Display your spa bathroom goodies on a nice tray.


Any nice antique bowl would work for a soap bowl.(look at the way the jewellery is displayed)

Look for a few blue antique bottles to put between your spa treatment items.




Love this mirror.



Look at this very easy to make tray- they are very easy to find here in Ireland and looks fantastic once painted.

Interesting place to display jewellery.

What an impressive dresser.


The use of candles in a bathroom rounds of the Shabby Chic look nicely.

  1. Thank you for these great ideas :-)
    How did you paint the silver tray white? What kind of colour did you use? I'm always so afraid if I paint a smooth surface, paint will fall in pieces... That would give a nice shabby look, but it also means I'd find paint everywhere :-S Any advice? :-)
