I’ve got a room makeover to share today! My boys’ bathroom was renovated and then decorated in a mad rush before my sister and her family came to visit a few years ago. I’ve never been happy with it, so I decided to work on it. When I moved in, I painted the walls with an oops paint I used in my last house, hung a new curtain and threw some pictures up on the walls. Here’s what it looked like:
Pretty fabulous huh? We even had fancy clear plastic towel bars and a matching toilet paper holder. Here it is now:
We replaced the tile floor, toilet, vanity, mirror, and light fixture.
That’s my hubby
doing what I tell him to hard at work. Ew gross.
I added the lighter stripes to brighten it up a bit. The color was just too dark by itself. I think it’s fun. That’s what I love about bathrooms… you can be a little adventurous! They are the perfect backdrop for my little gallery wall…
I redid all of the pieces here except the frame on the top, right. Most were thrift store finds, which you can see here. I made the “Beach” sign from an old picket fence. The sand dollar art I made last-minute today from one of the pictures I had in this space before. You can see what it looked like before in the first “before” picture of the bathroom.
Now this space is personalized just for my sweet boys. These photos were from a recent day at the beach.
Here is the other side before:
Very fancy! It was a coastal themed bathroom even then, if you count the nightlight. 🙂 And now:
Like my little crab friend? I picked him up at a craft show a couple of years ago…
He makes a great night-light. This lantern came from Pier One about fifteen years ago. Now I use it to house wash cloths:
The curtain is a set of two curtain panels I found on clearance at Target a few years ago. They match perfectly in here.
This set of three subliminal messages was made from old thrift store frames also, and fence pickets too! You can see how I made them here.
This chalkboard shelf was a Get Your DIY On project for our chalkboard-themed party last Fall. It cost me $1 at a yard sale…
I also found this step stool at a yard sale for just a dollar:
I bought very few accessories for this makeover. I used thrift store and yard sale finds to add personality to this space for very little money. The frame gallery wall is my favorite, probably because it’s full of pictures of my babies 🙂
Here’s one more Before:
Ahh so much better after:
Part of what pushed me to work on this room was our Get Your DIY On theme for August: Room Revamps!
Here’s are the spaces my lovely co-hosts revamped:
The fun starts this Sunday, August 3rd at 7:00pm EST. Come link up any space you’ve revamped or just come by to get inspired!
I can’t wait to see what everyone brings to the party!
I hope you liked my little makeover. My boys really love it, so if they’re happy, so am I! 🙂
