The "girls' powder room" (or guest bathroom) was in desperate need of a re-do, as these pictures show:
So I chose a bright, sunny color and added some girly, vintage touches.
I didn't want to spend much money so I decided to make the shower curtain myself. Remember this fabric? Yes...it's the sheet I found at the thrift store for $1.50! I had the shower rod already, but added a large button (or two) to each ring. I picked all different sizes and colors and glued them on.
I found some old hankies from my grandma and put them in yellow spray-painted frames that I already had. The spray paint was about $4.00.
I took an old wooden sign I wasn't using and covered it with another hankie, then wrote "Little Dreamers make Big Achievers" with a permanent pen. I bought the little wire shelf/ towel bar at Hibernation for about $12.00. All the Burt's Bees Baby lotions etc. are from my wonderful Mother-in-law who keeps me in ample supply:0) The colors are perfect with the new theme!
I have been on the lookout for a new rug and some hand towels...but haven't found the right ones yet.
When Madelynn woke up from her nap one day to find her bathroom re-decorated, she exclaimed, "OOOHH Mommy!" Then she went around touching everything saying, "Mommy made this!"
It's nice to have someone appreciate your decorating:0) Now I walk into the bathroom with a bright smile....and I crossed another project off the "nesting list!"
