Bring on the mama cloth, I finally have somewhere to put it!

>I don’t know if you remember my post asking where you keep your “supplies,” but we previously had zero space in our half bath, and I was trying to figure out what to do/where to keep stuff.  I am so excited that we’ve finally updated our half bath to new, more modern decor and I have storage space now, woo-hoo!

My husband received Lowes gift cards for Christmas, and I received one to Bed, Bath and Beyond.  We went to Lowes to get salt for our water softener, and they had a gorgeous vanity with granite top and under mount sink for half price!  We got that, some beaded wainscot, trim and other things, and spent around $200 for the update (money we received as Christmas gifts.)

Here’s a reminder of what the bathroom looked like before:

I chose the towels/rug ten years ago, so I think it was time for a change.  My tastes have definitely changed since then!

We’re not completely done yet, we need to paint over some caulking, put some knickknacks on the shelf, and I’m working on some modern artwork for the side wall.

I’m so excited! I was just hoping for an above the toilet storage thingie, and I got this! I can’t get over how nice it looks, and I’m so proud of my hubby for getting it (mostly) done!

So, yay!  Now I definitely want to start getting some mama cloth now that I have somewhere to keep it.  Though, can you imagine if someone decided to snoop in there?  That surprise would serve them right, hee hee!

If you use mama cloth (I swear I’ve asked this before but I can’t remember?) what is your favorite brand?

    >Ha! They are the devil! What a waste of space!

    >Nice remodel! The old design looks like our (apartment) half bath – Pedestal sinks are the devil.

    >I love the idea of a payment plan! YES! I totally smile every time I go in there, hee hee!

    >Oh and I forgot to mention how fantastic your new bathroom looks! Does it just make you smile now every time you go in there?

    >I have tried several different brands and my favorite by FAR is Homestead Emporium. She is awesome to work with too. She always allows customs and takes payment plans so you don't have to pay for shipping over and over and you don't have to stalk her stockings. After trying out all these other pads I finally placed a big custom order from her because her pads are what I always reach for first. Also she makes the best nursing pads too! Beautiful hand dyed OBV backed with PUL. I really can't say enough good things about H.E. 🙂 No affiliation either – just ♥ them!

    >Wow, very nice! I've just started using mama cloth too. I bought a few from Wallypop to try out. So far I like them! They don't have a great overnight solution though.

    >Thanks to everyone who left links, I will check them out!Do you like one material over another?

    >I mostly use cloth that I've made myself, out of flannel and PUL. I have a few from giveaways, 2 Fresh Moon and 1 Moonpad. Both of those brands are nice!http://gorgeousandgreenmd.com/item_84/Fresh-Moon-AIO-Pads.htmhttp://www.ilovemymoon.com/

    >I've used GladRags and really like them, but I have seen some really beautiful ones on etsy as well. Love your bathroom remodel!

    >Tara from I <3 Fluff makes mama cloth for their store, Country Drawers. It's about half the price of other mama cloth I've seen. They also have a rewards system. You sign up for an account and for every $10 you spend, you get 1 point (which is worth $1). Oh, and then you can use the points to get more FLUFF! :*)….

    >If any of you commenters sew, here is a picture of some I sewed. In the description you can see what materials they are made out of and you could probably make some yourself! (Or get on swapmamas and swap me for them)!http://www.swapmamas.com/photo/yellow-monkey-print-cloth?xg_source=activity

    >Love the new look of your bathroom! I've never tried mama cloth. I'm considering trying some mama cloth panty liners though.

  • January 19, 2011 at 3:45 pm

    >I haven't tried mama cloth, however I am starting to use the diva cup and I love it! I would love to find mama cloth to use with the diva cup, but haven't heard anything about a specific WAHM yet. I will let you know if I find anything!

  • January 19, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    >I was in the same boat too! Now I'm ready to try some! We definitely wouldn't have been able to do the update if we hadn't gotten such a good deal on the vanity. We wanted to put something like this in when we built the house but the vanities were soooo expensive!

    >I would love to hear others' responses to this!I haven't tried it yet but just ordered some from etsy.(tmi alert but i am still nursing at don't need mama cloth YET…)Also, LOVE your project. The bathroom is super cute and looks fabulous!
