I asked the painter to paint the cabinet from a grungy white to black and he charged me nothing just because he's a nice guy and I send lots of business his way.
Then I asked somebody who knows somebody to have all of my bathroom towels, hand towels, and washcloths dyed black.
I paid somebody to make the curtains because my machine isn't really working and she added a lining to the back of the curtains since that window gets the afternoon sun.
Everything cost approximately $64.00. That's more than I thought I'd spent, but I'm so pleased with it, I think it was worth it. And I know if I'd replaced all those towels, it would have cost a lot more! Also, if I could have made the curtains myself and dyed the towels myself, it would have cost about $33.00 less than it did.
I'm really loving the aqua and black combination!
