THE KIDS BATHROOM MAKEOVER IS DONE!!!!!
There were a few finishing touches to do and some changes I made…but I FINALLY got in there and snapped away last night!!!
BENJAMIN MOORE: GOSSAMER BLUE, CORAL GABLES, OCEAN AIR, MOUNTAIN PEAK WHITE
The little coral/orange soap-dish I got at one of my favorite Charlottesville stores “O’SUZANNAH!”…and it was the catalyst behind the “changes” I spoke of. I LOVED how it complimented the Ocean Air Blue walls….and so…VOILA!
Belle Foret Faucet and Coral soap dish
The mirrors, originally the same finish as the VANITIES/Consoles…were painted to POP!
…”CORAL CABLES” by Benjamin Moore.
Galvanized sconces: LOWES, Mirrors painted Benjamin Moore Coral Gables
MARTHA STEWART LIVING SEAL HARBOR 30 IN. VANITY IN SHARKEY GRAY WITH ALPINE WHITE TOP. HARDWARE IS POLISHED CHROME.
The sinks are nice and big, which works great with kids…. if they splash it usually just goes back
into the sink…I spied Cooper this morning rinsing his toothpaste spit down the drain…and it
made my heart swell!!!!
The Galvanized Sconces above the sinks are ACTUALLY Outdoor fixtures I got at…
They were a whopping $39.98/each!!!!
that I fell in love with at Barn Light Electric.
and in fact….I added a custom made Galvanized Schoolhouse pendant…
FOR AN AFFORDABLE $130
I learned SO many new skills doing this bathroom. One thing I tackled was that when the tile was on the wall, the plugs were then too recessed INSIDE the wall. What I had to do was remove the screws holding the plug in and putting nuts behind them to bring the plug out 1/4 inch…it then enabled me to put the switch plate on…
The white shower curtain and liner I got a TARGET.!!
The Pale Seafoam Blue shower curtain I made from a fabric from SPOONFLOWER called
“beyond the sea ikat “by
by the way…side note here…SPOONFLOWER IS AN INCREDIBLE RESOURCE for unique fabrics…
I LOVE IT!
I absolutely am IN LOVE with the Belle Foret shower and faucet that I got at VINTAGE TUB
…except, and this has nothing to do with THESE fixtures, but I have learned something…the hard way of course…
There is a new law in effect and I guess if you get a shower installed now they all have to have the PRESSURE BALANCE VALVE
…WHICH basically keeps you from scalding yourself if someone flushes…except…EXCEPT…it apparently is a known fact that this does not work well with big old country houses with big old pipes…
Initially, this change created LOW pressure issues, but we were able to make some adjustments which accommodated for the Decreased Pressureand now we have great shower pressure!!!!
Here is the little nook, and the Seal Harbor Medicine chest, where gallons of hair products are stored and very little medicine lives. For some reason, I adore this little nook. It just makes me happy.
The hooks on the door are from ANTHROPOLOGIE….
so there you go…
the KIDS BATHROOM MAKEOVER…in Pictures.
The room JUST WORKS, the space is smart and happy and the kids can be in there together getting ready…
I was about to say “and not fight”, but lets face it, they fight just because they can...
but they can do their thing…get in, get out, and we are all cleaner for it!!!!!
Have a great weekend!!!
