MY DIRTY LITTLE SECRET

When we purchased this house, it was a lot of things that needed and still needs to be done to it. I can go on and on about all of that, or I can just show you my next project which is my hall/boys bathroom.





I just realized that these picture's don't show the wall paper border. It was a mess!! I guess the "theme" in this bath was a fish or underwater adventure because the toilet seat has fish on it, the walls had fish decals on them and it had a border with fish on it. The color is baby blue and boy I mean BABY BLUE!!

I didn't do anything to this room when we moved in other than remove those fish off of the wall and put up the bath accessories. On September 5th I will be hosting an end of summer party for my boys and family and I refuse to let anyone see this bathroom like this again!

HERE'S THE RUN DOWN:

*Remove wall paper border (you can't see it in the pictures, but it is there!)
*paint the vanity/cabinet white
*do a little caulking
*prime the walls (because not only are they BABY BLUE but semigloss paint was used)
*paint the walls a sea glass blue
*remove the builder's grade mirror
*replace builder's grade mirror with one that is more up to date
*add new hardware to vanity doors
*Find a shower curtain and accessories that work better with the new wall color
*DO IT ALL FOR $50!!!

Sounds great! One of my favorite projects in my last house, was my boys bathroom. It was simply perfect! It was a shade of Bright Yellow with Ducks! If you can imagine Yellow & Orange! This time, I chose a more adult look, since my boys bathroom is also the one most of the guest will use. Total Cost of complete remodel $750 (includes labor of removing wallpaper, sheetrock repair, new paint, new floors, new mirror, an exquisite vanity from Homegoods, accessories, and monogram towels)! Now that's a deal!

OH FUN! Please post often with lots of photos!

What is it about fish and bathrooms? Oh...water, right! But really...the fish on the toliet part made me laugh. What were they thinking!
