I decided I needed a table by my bath tub to hold soaps, wash cloths and flowers. Yes I know it’s a luxury item, but I thought ‘why not?’ This table came from an antique store, but it was not very expensive. It feels so special to have this little table in my bath.
I planned to paint it when I bought it, but the funky paint for some reason, doesn’t bother me in here… at least not right now.
I’ve set out one of my prettiest soaps with the most heavenly lilac scent. The soap sits on a little porcelain tray from a previous trip to France. I also have washcloths, a vase of flowers, and some powder on the table.
I wanted my bathroom to feel special. Even if you don’t have room for a table, you might be able to treat yourself to a vase full of fresh flowers. or some scented bath soaps, or brand new wash cloths.
It’s the little things that make us feel special. I believe that there are always things you can do in your home even with limited space and a limited budget. The tighter the budget the more creativity required. But necessity is the mother of invention, right? Have any tips for making yourself or other feel pampered in the bathroom? Please share your ideas in the comments.
I love the little crackled finished table in the bath!
I like to leave out a wire basket of essentials that a guest may not have like over-the-counter medications, toothbrush/paste, ibuprofen, sewing kit, etc. Also, the guest may need wrinkle -release spray for wrinkled packed clothing or a small iron. Extra toilet paper in plain sight is never a bad idea either. A live plant like African violets that like humidity may add a nice burst of color, too!
Me sorprende gratamente esta mesita con todos sus aparejos me encanto particularmente el talco recuerdo uno igual que tenia mi madre,oh que de recuerdos ,siempre son bellas sus decoraciones soy su fiel admiradora.
My master bath is a pretty one with feminine touches. I also had a beautfully painted magazine holder and a rustic antique Chinese work stool. I love how it looks. I love yours too!
So very pretty and a touch of elegance too!
I noticed this yesterday and it adds such charm to your bath. I like the paint.
A table in the bathroom is a great idea- I like the French chair and table of yours. I have a stool in my bathroom that kind of functions as a table – like you said, when your budget isn’t big sometimes you have to get crafty!
I’ve always admired the look of furniture used in a bath. This is lovely! I wish we had a bath large enough to add a piece of furniture or two.

Our one and only bathroom is looooooong and skinny, but there is a small corner that might work. I’ve also considered a narrow bench-type piece.
Your’s is beautiful. Love the textures and colors. 🙂
Something has happened and I am not getting your posts any more.
Love the table in the bath. I have one and just love it.
Love you little table in the bath.
Combined with your chair one would feel totally pampered!
I have a shelf over the toilet that was one of the first home decor accessories
“Mr. Ed” and I purchased 45 years ago. It hold my MoMa’s wet comb santizer
from her lifelong career as a Beautician. Precious in my sight!
Both recall precious memories and make me feel loved and comforted. . .
I think this creates a wonderful little spa-like effect and looks very inviting. The painted table fits right in. So pretty.
Very elegant and beautiful!

Its a lovely accent to your bathroom. We don’t have room for a table but I do like fresh flowers in the bathroom. I also have a nice statue and candles that help to make it more than a bath. Hugs

Flowers in bathroom look lovely. I am sad i dont have enough space to place a small “rustical” table 🙁
This looks awesome.
