We Use an Outhouse Every Day

December 28, 2011
My second bathroom is 6' 8" x 5".  Very small.  After you squeeze in a toilet, a small vanity and a neo-angle shower stall, it becomes downright miniscule.

How do you decorate such a small space?  Well I thought about how the bathroom was about the size of a an outhouse, and I got my inspiration. 

First up - take a trip out to hunting shack country to snap a few black and white photos of real live outhouses.  Then - frame them in heavy black wood frames. 

Continue the outhouse effect - by adding a graniteware tub, "cabiny" signs, and a black distressed mirror.

(We actually bathe our dogs in that tub)

Add some outhouse humor.

And there you have it, my outhouse..in town.
