I replaced the dated floor tile with a gray tile with a hardwood look from Lowes. I had it sealed in a poly grout that will withstand all water spills and splashes. Very important with messy boys.
At $2.27 a square foot, it made a big impact without the big price tag.
The toilet and shower area got new tile, paint and drapes (turned shower curtain) from Serena and Lily. These panels were hung on a separate rod, higher than the base rod which holds the plastic liner to give the room height. It adds a more tailored look than a regular shower curtain. Fluffy white towels (can you say Clorox?) from HomeGoods and a patterned rug soften the space.
For all the DIY details and behind the scenes check out the video!
I replaced the old towel bars and fixtures with updated Moen fixtures, also from Lowes. I like the idea of this double towel bar so each boy could hang a towel. Now, if I could only convince them that towels don't "hang" on the floor...I couldn't resist the "WASH" cloth. You would think it would be self-explanatory, but...
I filled the bathroom with functional accessories: two of everything, of course, but found these stackable caddies to be perfect storage. Now they have a place for everything in hopes they will stay organized and actually use the soap, toothbrushes...
In other weekend highlights, Read informed me *Thursday night that I would be attending our annual Trick or Treat party as Princess Leia. It went a little something like this...
Read: I got your costume for tomorrow night.
Me: Uh, I wasn't planning on dressing up. What is it?
Read: Princess Leia.
Me: THE Princess Leia complete with the honeybun wig?
Read: That's the one.
Hutson: Mom, our whole family is dressing up from Star Wars.
Flanner: Plus, Mom, Princess Leia is soooo pretty.
Yep, I lost that one. Graham was out for the night with friends so I was out numbered.
While we missed her, we did take Teddy along.
He was an Ewok.
Happy Monday and MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU...
bye bye birdie...
