Spa-Inspired Master Bathroom

I saw Leen’s coastal inspired bathroom and I thought the look would be perfect for my spa-inspired Master Bathroom.   So, I bought the same soap dispensers that Leen had, and I purchased the “lotion” and “soap” decals from Leen’s site, Leen the Graphics Queen.

Then, I  searched my house for a votive holder and jar just like Leen had.   The votive holder had a ring of wax on the bottom of it.

“I’ll clean it later,”  I told myself.  That was in January.


Then last Friday as I was replenishing the cotton balls and q-tips in my bathroom, I  hesitated.  Put the q-tips in the votive holder or wait and take the time to clean it first, I pondered.

“Not again,”  I thought to myself.   So, I took the votive holder to the kitchen intending to put it in the freezer for a few hours.

Later I would pop out the leftover candle wax and put the votive holder back on my vanity.  But, I decided to see if I could just scrape out the wax with a butter knife.

Sure enough, that’s all it took.

As I look at this “before” picture, that orange ring of wax stresses me out.  That’s the opposite effect that a spa-inspired bathroom should have.

I put this task off for months simply because I didn’t want to have to wait a few hours for the wax to harden in the freezer.  As it turned out, all I needed was a knife and a few minutes (and the motivation of Alejandra’s video series.)


Later that evening when I was getting ready for bed I experienced a wave of relief  as I caught a glance at the now clear, clean votive holder shining back at me.

Why wait?
 This was one of those little things that nagged at me day after day.   And procrastinating cost me months of  enjoyment.

Lesson learned.  And now I get to experience a sense of accomplishment as well as enjoy a clean space.


What little thing are  you putting off ’til tomorrow?  I encourage you to check it off of your to-do list today.
