Kid’s Bathroom Remodel


I promised to show you to kid’s bathroom remodel and I’ve finally gotten around to getting all the photos uploaded!  The first photos are the “BEFORE.”  It wasn’t too bad.  It just didn’t have a theme and it was really drab.  All the mismatched hand me downs found there way into this bathroom.
