I am so excited to finally reveal this bathroom makeover. It has been one of my favorite transformations and I may or may not stop in and look at it at least once a day!
In the words of pregnant Laura, it is so “fresh and clean”. Couldn’t you just look in that mirror all day?! Framing it really does change something so “blah” to something so “ta-da!”
I couldn’t be happier to replace our towel rack with hooks! I have no idea why, but the towels find their home on the hook more frequently than they ever did when there was a towel bar!
And finally…the shelves! For 2 shelves under $10, this is a no brainer! It brings a little color and organization to the room.
One of my favorite repurposes in this bathroom belongs to these cups from Target. These cuppies are a whopping $0.79 a piece! I found them in the aisle with the other kid’s plates and utensils. Colorful, useful and yet again, kid-friendly!
I bough an 8 pack of washcloths (approx. $3.50) and 2 sets of 2 hand towels (approx. $2.50 each) at Target and went a little nuts. Each washcloth was embroidered with the word “wash” in a different color and font. 2 of the towels were personalized for Noah and Aria with the Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” fabric. In an effort to stay with the kid-friendly theme, they say “A is for Aria” and “N is for Noah”.
They all sit beside the tub, waiting to be used in a little wooden box I bought for our first apartment. I slapped a coat of high gloss, white paint on it and modge-podged the bottom with Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” fabric.
I had purchased the PBK Hungry Caterpillar themed accessories for dirt cheap on eBay 2+ years ago, but they only sell a toothbrush holder, a soap dish, and a trash can. Does no one at PBK need tissues? Do they not believe in hand soap? Luckily, I had a wooden tissue box that was waiting to be put in the game. I modge-podged some gingham scrap book paper and stuffed it full of Kleenex (Who are we kidding?! I’m a stay at home mom, we can’t afford Kleenex…that’s some generic Kroger tissues in there).
Months ago, I saw this towel ring pin and decided to give it a try! I found a cheapy frame at Michael’s, painted it white and then modge-podged my gingham scrapbook paper onto a piece of cardstock. I glued the cardstock to the back of the open frame and adhered it to the wall using command Velcro strips. After I attached the towel ring, I hung the other set of my Target towels that I appliqued using the “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” fabric.
