This is the first bathroom I have ever painted. :) I knew I wanted to re-do this one though from the moment I saw it. It wasn’t a bad looking bathroom before… it just lacked some color.
I am not a professional decorator at all… but one thing I find is if a room is all ONE TONE, it just makes the room feel a bit small. I feel when you break up colors, it adds something more visually appealing. I love mixing cool tones with warm tones. I love when you can add modern with rustic.
I had left over paint from our Guest Room make over. I figured, may as well do it now, while I was in the painting spirit. Bathrooms just for those who have never painted one, are hard! Painting around a toilet is a bit of a pain… and you have to tape off around the shower as well. Also, tight quarters haha. I’m a petite person, but imagine Travis being 6 foot squatting down to paint around a toilet. That be difficult for him. I did it of course but to all those who are tall, prepare yourself haha… its a squeeze.
The color used was Gliddens Dusty Miller color. Its a blue-ish gray. Not to boy-ish though… to me this is a great gender neutral color that would work well in a boy themed or girl themed bathroom or bedroom. Its just a lovely color all around and I love how it looks slightly different in this bathroom than it does in the guestroom.
The Shower curtain came from TJMaxx and I believe is by Tommy Hilfiger? It was under $20.00. I already had the tension rod and shower hooks to hang the curtain. TJMaxx had tons of cute shower hooks though, if you are in the market. Most under $6.00.
We also took down the “towel” rods in the bathroom. They were falling off any way… but for young children I find “TOWEL RODS” aren’t the way to go. Kids can’t fold well and I got so tired of walking in that room and seeing half hanging towels draped over the two rods. So instead I got small decorative black hooks from Lowes. I believe they cost $1.19 a piece. So for under $5.00 I had a new way for the kids to hang their towels. Each kid got a hook. So much easier and function-able and inexpensive! The hooks even came with the screws. :)
The cost of this bathroom make over was under $50.00. Can’t beat that.
