My Kid’s Bathroom hasn’t been decorated since we moved here nearly 8 years ago and it was definitely in need of a change. Since our home was brand new when we bought it, I didn’t need to tackle any HUGE projects, just some simple updates. But even though each piece of this puzzle was easy to transform, it has been sitting incomplete for over a year now! (I’m queen of starting a project and getting sidetracked!) But last month I was contacted by Better Homes and Gardens and they offered to sponsor the redesign. Um, yes please! (said my family.) It was the kick-in-the-pants I needed and I am so excited to show you the final results!
The first project I tackled was framing my bathroom mirror. It had those ugly plastic clips holding it to the wall, but I figured out a way around them that was super simple. (Make sure you read the tutorial if you have the same problem- you’ll want to kiss me!)
I also took down the towel rack and added towel hooks for my kid’s towels.
I bought a new shower curtain and a new bath rug to brighten and freshen it up.
I added new towels above the toilet and a cute shadow box.
I don’t know why the builder didn’t just continue the counter space to the wall. This gap has bugged me since we bought the house. What was I supposed to do with it? I tried a corner shelf, but it wasn’t my favorite. Then I found the PERFECT bench that was literally 1/2 an inch shorter than the space I had so it fit like a glove… I about died of excitement!
I added some pillows I found in the garden section at WalMart and hung some adorable prints above it using those funky frames, painted white. I got a couple galvanized buckets to go in the cubbies of the bench; 1 for toilet paper and 1 for extra towels.
Do you LOVE these prints? You can get your hands on your own from Lisa @ Over the Big Moon. They are available as a FREE Download, or you can get your own custom colors via her etsy shop. Aren’t they SO fun???
A few knick-knacks on the counter and a full length mirror to the empty wall and this bathroom is D-U-N Done!
And did I mention I did this all for under $200??? That deserves a pat on the back!
Special thanks to Better Homes and Gardens and Wal Mart for all the fun accessories that made this update so fantastic!
