As I was taking pictures of the kids' rooms (finally), I realized I've never posted our upstairs bathroom pictures. When we moved in, it was a 1980s beach lover's dream come true with more flip flops, beach balls and umbrellas you could ever dream of. Or not. Here is the clean slate once we were ready to get things rolling... see the little flip flop rug down there at the bottom? Buh bye!
Here's what we came up with:
We got rid of the popcorn ceiling (woo! hoo!) and my mom textured the walls. After some paint, crown molding and bead board, it looks so much better. When you're on a budget, you have to get creative and work with what you have. For instance, the counter. I would have loved to put a darker granite down but instead I just replaced the faucet to update the look. I found this one on Overstock.com for $50.
Speaking of budget, all the accessories were so cheap because I either made them myself or found them at Ikea. Who loves Ikea? I do! I do! :)
The art hanging over the toilet was just a $5 wood frame that needed a piece of fabric stapled over it.
These picture frames were Ikea bargains. I just bought some scrapbook paper for the background and added pictures to finish them off.
I found these towel hooks at World Market and my dad secured them onto the wood. I thought it turned out really cute.
I bought this lamp and lampshade from Target and painted the white shade to coordinate with the towels. I needed something to hide the lamp cord so I just framed this 'friendly little reminder' with leftover paper I had from the hanging pictures.
