I’m feeling inspired to fix up Jace’s bathroom. Right now it’s blah… I do have a few cute elements in it—the shower curtain is AMAZING. It was the first thing in our not-quite-married life that I insisted on. I chose it for our wedding registry because I knew it would be cute in a kids’ bathroom some day. It’s opaque clear vinyl with black words written all over it (bubbles, soap, water, etc).
The room is still just painted with the the basic, flat, white paint contractors use (complete with fun smudges and scratches since EVRYTHING leaves a mark on that paint), but at least I have a cute vinyl decal above the towel rack.
And once upon a time I was given a bath set in a cute wire bathtub basket.
I’ve loved each of these items, but haven’t ever taken the time to make the bathroom the cute space they all deserve to be showcased in. (Side note—when we bought our house 4 years ago, we held off a week on moving in so we could do some painting—the living room and our bedroom. That’s all we could afford to paint. Since then, we’ve also painted Jace’s room. Other than that, I stare at my white, scuffed up walls and regularly think to myself that I should get motivated enough to use some of our left over paint.)
Two months ago I bookmarked this super cute sign for a bathroom that Lolly Jane Boutique made. I thought it would look cute in Jace’s bathroom. And finally, on Monday, I felt like doing a project. Using two canvases that I already had, I made my own version of the sign.
You can’t tell in the picture, but the canvases are painted a light, butter yellow. I am so thrilled with how it turned out! Now I’m motivated to paint the bathroom with the left over light tan from Jace’s room. In fact, I may be motivated enough to start the painting process tomorrow! I plan on hanging this above the toilet. I can picture the space coming together now. A bathroom-words theme (let’s go with the obvious just in case people don’t realize where they are), with a black and white base and red and blue accents. It’s super cute in my mind! The only bummer is that I think I’m going to have to say good-bye to the decal if I plan on painting. But I’m sure I’ll find something else cute to hang there. Or maybe I could just paint my own version of it and frame it or something like that… we’ll see!
