Kid's Bathroom

I must say that this bathroom was done A LONG time ago. I just never posted pics. This is the upstairs bathroom shared by the kids. It used to look like this:

Yep, pretty pitiful. I attempted putting up a little of the kids art and a colorful lamp, but that's about it! I mean, the toothpaste is out and the toilet lid is up. Pretty gross.

These vintage drapes were my inspiration. I found them at a thrift shop about 4 years ago and fell in love with the graphic design and colors.

I cut off the pleated top of the curtains and added small grommets for the shower hooks to loop through.

The walls were painted a warm grey (another of my oops paint finds!). I did a board and batten treatment on the bottom half of the wall and painted it a glossy white

I put the kids' paintings back in the room. I also added the pair of owls, also painted a glossy white. The towel rack is a board I found at Hobby Lobby that I washed with some teal paint and added some thrifted brass hooks.

I had my two oldest kids paint these canvases. I just told them what colors to use.

A gentle reminder for them to brush their teeth.

I also changed out the cabinet knobs. Nothing too fancy, but an upgrade from builder basic.

I decorated this bathroom for less than $60. It works for me!
If only it were always this clean! : )
