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. It lacked personality and I waned the kids to have a fun, kid friendly bathroom that would be all their own.
I am so excited about how the finished product turned out. I knew I wanted to do it in a ducky theme but I had a little trouble finding things I actually liked. I ordered several items online and my mom lucked up on a few things. (The list of items and where I bought them are at the bottom of the post if you are curious). I absolutely LOVE the colors. I think it made the room look really cheerful.
One of the things I am really proud of is the photo hanging behind the sinks. Framed artwork costs an arm and a leg and after searching around locally and finding nothing I turned my search to online options. Again, I came up empty handed since I only found a few ducky items and nothing was what I had in mind (besides the fact that they cost more than the rest of the remodel put together!). So, I decided to think outside the box. I took a photo of the cutest little rubber duck my kids already owned on top of one of the cute orange sherbet polka dotted towels that I had ordered. I choose the best photo and had it turned into a canvas at Walmart.com. I knew the colors would match this way and it totally goes with the theme!
Another thing I am really proud of is the step stool. It was an unfinished one that was given to me by my sister in law. I gave it a coat of white paint (left over from painting the house). Then, I used my Cricut machine to cut the words “Splish” and “Splash” out of blue shiny vinyl. I just love how it turned out!
To fancy up the shower curtain a bit (and bring in the orange color) I added orange polka doted ribbons to the top around each of the curtain rings.
And last, I absolutely fell in love with these duck towels. The duck and water design were how I purchased them from Macy’s. One of my coworkers has a monogram machine and she was able to match up the blue thread from the water to monogram Judah’s name and Eliana’s name each on their very own towel. My husband and I hung a new towel bar and two coat hooks under the art work I made. I thought the coat hooks would be easy for the kids to use as they are learning to clean up after themselves (we hung them very low for this purpose).
