It’s the last night of our 25 Days of Penny Pinched DIY series, and I’m a little sad to see this series end (you all have really seemed to enjoy it, and I’ve loved hunting down these little treasures too!)  I may try another series like this out soon (have a few other ideas up my sleeve first . . . ), but it’s been fun to see all the fantastic DIY project there are out there. )

Go HERE to see how Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage totally changed the look of their bathroom with just some wood, and be sure to click HERE as well to see her complete bathroom makeover. (I absolutely love this one and am betting you will too!)
