This week I decided that I had had enough of staring at the multi-colored walls in the kids' bathroom.  The people who lived in the house before us had children and had used an underwater creature theme.  When we moved in there were plastic peel away stickers all over the wall and I immediately pulled them down but just got busy with other things and didn't paint.  Up until now, the only people to use this bathroom are overnight guests so I just haven't made it a priority.

Now that Kanin takes showers on his own and all three kids are brush, brush, brushing those teeth, I would like for them to start using their own bathroom.  We have family coming in this weekend, too, and I am notorious for starting a project with a set deadline.  (Click HERE to read about Scott's mom's buffet project).

So here it goes.  Be prepared.  I had to use 3 coats of primer plus the paint.


I had primer and a neutral paint down in the basement.  I decided to go ahead and use the same shower curtain because I really loved it but I just bought a new liner.  I also used the same shower curtain hangers.  I told Scott this morning that between the primer, paint and shower curtain I probably saved a good $100. 

I received a $50 gift card to Bed, Bath & Beyond for Christmas so in total I spent $55 extra dollars (total of $105) on this bathroom.  I bought 2 pictures, 2 small hanging things, 1 decorative hand towel and 2 useable hand towel and a shower curtain liner.


I think it looks so much better and I don't have to wear sunglasses when I go in there anymore.  LOL
