I really wish I had a before picture of this bathroom, but since it was just a non-existent space, it wouldn’t be all that exciting to see. So you will have to settle for a bunch of “afters”.
Also, I have never taken you on a tour of my boys’ bathroom, so I thought I would do that tonight. And yes, cleaning it with a toothbrush and scrubbing it with q-tips might have something to do with why I am currently feeling emboldened enough to show it off. (Just kidding, no q-tips were harmed in the cleaning of this bathroom.)
Lately as I walk through my house, I just see a bunch of projects haunting me from all directions. Each room has a million things in it that I would want to change if/when the time/resources become available. But this bathroom, my guest/boys bathroom, is one room in my home I actually like. I haven’t changed anything about it since we remodeled two years ago, and I don’t think I will for some time to come.
When designing this bathroom I knew I wanted to keep the Nautica shower curtain from our previous home. I knew I wanted the bathroom to be kid friendly and yet not make guests feel like they were showering inside a cartoon. I knew I wanted wainscoting and Benjamin Moore Whipple Blue walls. I knew I wanted a vintage looking vanity. I also knew I wanted to incorporate my kiddos passion for dinos into the decor. This seemed like an impossible order, but I knew I could make it happen.
I found the Pottery Barn dinosaur towels on clearance and bought up a bunch.
I ordered the vanity below from HomeDecoratorsOutlet.com. It was on deep clearance because it was originally green with pink roses. But for only $200 including shipping and including that gorgeous white marble top, we decided it would be easy enough to just paint those ugly roses white.
I adore all the detail on the vanity and how it compliments the wainscot.
The gooseneck hardware came from overstock.com, and the little dino hand towel was a fun find from HomeGoods.
I was thrilled to find a cheap mirror at Ross which wasn’t too fussy or ornate.
The shadowbox picture frames were fantastic finds at Big Lots with more Pottery Barn Kids clearance dino towels.
Aren’t my babies in their dino costumes adorable?
I was able to find towel rods at Marshal’s that matched my light fixture from Lowes…
…and my tp dispenser from Ross.
It’s the little details that make me happy. Like how these dragonfly hooks look adorable on the back of the door.
And how this deep window looks great surrounded by molding and wainscot.
And how cute my boys’ names look on their dino towels.
So how about you? Any room in your home that you’re still in love with?
