Nautical Guest Bath

I got the Christmas all packed away in the guest bath and cleaned it top to bottom.   A sparkling clean room.....neutral pallet....what a great way to start...but what would be my decorating theme?
I had taken advantage of Dillard's 75% off Christmas isle and had some new nautical items ....but they were Christmas....can I use them to decorate now?
Well,  let's see if I can!

I hung a Christmas ornament anchor on the front of a mirror......

Last summer I had this big seashell as some of the decor on the deck mantle.   I had brought it in for the winter and had it under the sink in the master bathroom.   I thought I might use it in the master bathroom since it is done in a beachy theme.

I filled my big sea shell with pearls....from the!    The bicycle is from the Dillard's Christmas sale.   It was an nautical tree ornament....the little basket is filled with tiny sea shells.    The  crab cage has a crystal crab in it and is also a tree ornaments from Dillard's.
I hung  Christmas sea shell tassels on one of my candelabra's.

I tried to get a clear close up,  but my tassels didn't want to cooperate.

I also hung these crystal on the candelabra,  but they wouldn't photograph at all!   I finally laid them on a book to get a good picture.

This end of the counter is decorated with items that I already had.

This end of the counter got sail boat ornaments guessed it....Dillard's 75% off Christmas sale.

All of the decor on the other counter is stuff that I already had on hand.

I made a sea shell crown for my "Queen of the Sea"

My Relax sign was also under the cabinet from the deck mantel....below is a photo of the deck I keep talking about

H bought a big box of reels at the auction this past summer and I dug one out to use in my nautical guest bath.

Well,  what do you think?   Can you use  ornaments to decorate with after Christmas?

  I think you can!
