Decorating the bathroom on a small budget started with inexpensive fabric from Walmart. I used it to make a shower curtain. It cost about $9 and I made it extra tall because I like the look and it keeps more water from spraying over the top. The fabric had different surfboards all over it. So I gathered up what scrap-booking supplies I had in coordinating colors and made paper surf boards mounted on foam to give them a 3-D look. Then I mounted the whole thing in some black frames I already had.
Next I found this metal trash can at DI for $1.
I brought it home, taped it off and spray painted it (of coarse).
I love it.
I plan on buying each boy their own color of towel.
Grey, black, brown, and tan.
That helps keep track of who's towel it who's. So far I've only purchased the grey ones. I also like to use hooks instead of towel bars. It's easier for kids I think. I attached a piece of bias tape to make it easy to hang it on the hook.
Well here it is our new beautiful bathroom for the boys.
I know it won't stay looking so pristine, but here's hoping.
I just love this shelf above the toilet.
I got it for free from my lovely neighbor. Only it was about four feet long. So my wonderful hubby cut it in half and put it back together. I added a short piece of one by two piece of wood behind the fancy supports to beef it up a little. I just love it. I wanted the shelf for a basket to fill with good old TP.
(At our house someone seems to always be yelling from behind the bathroom doors, "Can someone bring me some TP?" Hopefully this will help.)
I already had the basket.
I picked up the cute plaque I picked up at Salvation Army for $1.
I needed a hand towel holder but didn't have a very big space. So we used an industrial handle and Spray painted it black. I like it cause it holds the towel in place better when they are drying their hands.
That's our latest and greatest project.
I love it! And I love that it's done!
