Bathroom Upgrade with Dollar Store Finds!

So when we moved into our home we slowly got each room done. One room that I am still working on is the upstairs spare bathroom! So I decided to get to work on it! I only spent $5 with this upgrade!
Items:
3 picture frames= $1 each
2 jars= $1 each
Paint= I already had it
Cricut=  I already had it

I found picture frames at the dollar store…I needed three black frames. Two out of the three were brown, so I painted the two brown ones black!
I then attempted to give my dog a bath! Now mind you my dog is a black 60lb, 6 month old Lab. Lets just say it was VERY interesting getting him in the tub and out of the tub! Check out the pictures I made to hang up in the bathrooms!

I then found these jars at the dollar store:
BATHROOM 003
I decided to put q-tips and cotton balls in them! I got the idea to use the cricut to cut out the letters for each jar from again my wonderful cousin-in-law over at Mine for the Making!!
