THE TRUE TEST OF ANY MAKEOVER IS HOW IS HOLDS UP OVER TIME. THE KIDS BATHROOM MAKEOVER HAS BEEN A SUCCESS ON ALL FRONT AND LOOKS AS FRESH AND HAPPY TODAY AS IT DID 3 YEARS AGO WHEN I GUT RENOVATED IT.

LETS TAKE A LOOK!

(Some things do not hold up – sadly that adorable toothbrush holder fell onto the tile floor and broke – lesson learned!)

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!

The mirrors, originally the same finish as the VANITIES/Consoles…were painted to POP!

…”CORAL CABLES” by Benjamin Moore.

 If and when we move and IF I am called upon to RE-DO another bathroom – I would 100% get these vanities agin. They hold up great – the color is so beautiful and they have awesome storage. The tops are sleek and easy to keep clean. LOVE THEM!

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!!!!

I would do these lighting choices again in heartbeat!
The Galvanized Sconces above the sinks are ACTUALLY Outdoor fixtures I got at…
of all places LOWES!!!
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…

Much to my own surprise. a few weeks after the MAKEOVER was finished…I spied and subsequently added The AWESOME wallpaper in a CORAL Seahorse pattern I got on sale from Hygee-West. In person it makes people SQUEAL with  delight!!!!

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

threeyellowplums

 

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…

KIDSSHOWER

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!!!! I love learning new stuff!!!!


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….
The room JUST WORKS, the space is smart and happy and the kids can be in there together getting
ready…
