Easy bathroom wall redo and bench from Amazon!

Our bathroom wall has bugged me since we moved in three years ago. The previous owners had hung a full-sized towel bar randomly way high up on the wall on the opposite side of the room from the shower--and, in total pet peevery, had hung it slightly crooked. I removed it from the wall, but they had internal anchors, so it pulled two big holes in the wall. We didn't have any of the paint to match (not sure why they went with a sage when the cabinets are blue/gray, but hey--whatever.)  So I hung some canvases over the holes, but it didn't look right. So I decided to patch the holes and paint 12-nch stripes on the wall in white to cover them.

Then I went to Michaels and got some little wooden crates that painted white and hung on the walls over the patched areas and filled them with flowers and an oil diffuser. Much better! But the wall  still looked kind of empty, and we needed a place to store a few supplies for haircutting (I cut everybody in our family's hair), so I found  great little white wooden storage bench on Amazon. I love it! It was cheap, cute, and super easy to assemble (took about 20 minutes).  Here's a link if you want one! (It would also look cute with some baskets in the bottom to hold towels (or shoes if you made it an entry way bench).

Next step is to replace the ugly can light in the ceiling with a chandelier, and then I think I'll be very happy with our bathroom--finally! :)
