Home Goods Makeover After

Remember that Home Goods wood tote I posted about last week (here)?  Here it is now:
I originally wanted to paint it white but I ran out half way through.  Plan B: pink.  I wanted to make it really girly and yes, it is in our bathroom - right on top of the loo (so much nicer than saying toilet).  The starfish hand towels are from Pottery Barn.

 
I added some vintage lace on both sides.  Then I printed off the French image from The Graphic's Fairy and added them to both sides using Mod Podge.
I added this great Marie Antoinette image to both of the skinnier sides using Mod Podge.  Once that was dry, I added the rhinestone embellishments.
Then I added some Frenchy touches inside.
This tag is actually a thank you from an Etsy purchase.  I added the French script button because I accidentally ripped the tag when I added the tea-stained seam binding.  Oops!

I'm really loving it and it's exactly the girly piece that I imagined it could be!  Linking to The Graphics Fairy: Brag Monday and Between Naps on the Porch: Met Monday.
