It’s summertime, and for many of us, that means we’ll have guests visiting. What’s the first thing we think of when preparing our homes to receive guests? I’d have to say most of us would agree that it’s the guest bathroom!
My in-laws recently came to visit and bless them for their patience in sharing a bathroom with two young kids! When guests come to stay, I always think it’s a good idea to make sure you make them feel welcome. By having a basket of goodies that they may have forgotten to pack, it means your guests won’t have to come running to you for things that they may need.
This welcome sign is a great way to personalize a little something special for your guests when they arrive. By keeping it in the bathroom, even last minute guests can have their own welcome sign, all you’ll need to do is sneak away for a moment! (Which we know we all do when unexpected guests arrive…we’ve got to check the status of the bathroom, don’t we??)
These cute little thrift store finds are great for holding odds and ends, and I even like the idea of leaving one empty as a sort of “catch all” for your guests. Rings and jewelry won’t get lost you have a special place to put them!
While the Kleenex Hand Towels containers are made to be fairly neutral in order to blend in with most color schemes, the steel grey color of this package was just a bit modern for the look of our bathroom, so my mother-in-law and I threw together this cute wrap to go around the container and “girly” it up a bit!
All we (and by we, I mean 95% my mother-in-law, 5% me…I’m still working on my sewing skills!) did was cut a piece of cute fabric and sew on three pieces of elastic in order to make the cute and ruffly wrap. The whole project took about 30 minutes and really added something special to the box of hand towels.
Here’s my mother-in-law sewing away. This was before I was brave enough to jump in and give it a try, but once I did, it actually wasn’t that difficult. If you can sew a straight line, you can do this!
When it was time to hang up the container, I used the easiest thing possible…sticky tack! Just four big pieces of sticky tack and that container isn’t going anywhere…and it’s not going to ruin your walls either! It’s a great way to mount your box of Kleenex Hand Towels in a nice, clean way.
So, the next time you have guests over, think about using Kleenex Hand Towels in your guest bathroom. If your home is similar to mine and your guest bathroom is also your kids’ bathroom, you NEVER know what you’ll find in your regular bathroom towels. These disposable hand towels are a much safer option!
