I’ve been putting off updating my kids bathroom now for a mere eight years (I know ~ crazy!) because I just didn’t know what to do with it. Because my three kids (two girls and a boy) share the bathroom, deciding on a “theme” has been difficult, so I just let it go (yucky builder paint and all) for entirely too long.
Finally though I decided to just use the paint that I already had on hand (it’s the paint that’s in the main areas of our home), and see what we could do with it. I took my kids to TJMaxx (note that I did not go to Target where they would inevitably fight over princess, camo colors, or zebra prints), and let them pick out the shower curtain.
My son actually picked out the grey shower curtain (I was shocked!) and I started remembering all the grey and yellow decor I’ve seen pop up on Pinterest. We then found a cute canvas print, spent a whopping $44, and headed home to paint. Here’s the breakdown of what we purchased:
- Shower Curtain $14.99
- “Life is Good” print $12.99
- 2 white towels with grey trim $3.99 each (I probably need to pick up a few more of those)
- Shower curtain rings $3.99
- New trash can $3.99
- Paint $0 (used leftover paint from the rest of the house)
- Total = $43.95
Here’s the tour (it’s kinda small in there, so it was hard to get any good pictures!)
soooo much better, and even my son loves it!
Here’s a tip that a friend gave me last week for painting the bathrooms.
In a perfect world, one would remove the toilet tank from the toilet prior to painting, however my husband wasn’t home when I started painting and I’m not the kind of girl who likes to wait around when the mood for painting comes around. (When you get the urge to paint, you gotta go fast or it’ll be gone before you know it!) 😉 Soooo, cover your tank with plastic wrap while you paint, get as much as you can behind it, and when the paint’s dry just remove the wrap. Smart!
An even smarter momma would remove the lid of the tank to give herself a little more room, ummm, but that didn’t happen here . . .
