When my kids were younger, my husband and I decorated their bathroom in a gender neutral jungle theme. It was perfect for two boys and a girl, and for a bathroom that they share with any guests we might have visiting.
Now my kids are older, and all of us are ready for something a little more grown-up.
Here's a before picture (or really an in-the-middle picture since I forgot to take a REAL before shot!):
And here is how it looks today!
Sure, there are a few more finishing touches I need to add. I'm looking for the perfect wall art to hang, and I'd like to get a shelf to hang over the toilet, but this is basically our new and improved bathroom!
I will have a more in-depth tutorial for this next week, but the first thing I did was stain our golden oak cabinets using Java Gel Stain from General Finishes.
Since I now have gorgeous cabinets, I wanted to dress up the sink and countertop.
I purchased the silver hardware for my cabinets from Walmart, and while I was there I picked up a few other things.
I found these gorgeous Foaming Hand Wash soaps from Softsoap in a special display at the end of the soap isle. They come in three varieties, though one is specifically for kitchen use (which I'll talk about in a minute). I chose to display the Whipped Cocoa Butter one in my bathroom because it matches my new color scheme.
I'm already a Softsoap user anyway, but these foaming soaps are really a premium quality for a great price!
Don't you love the orange and aqua together? I've long been a fan of these colors!
I took those colors from the shower curtain I purchased. I painted the top part of the walls a light aqua shade, and then my husband and I installed faux board-and-batten using MDF planks. I love how it looks!
I bought towels to match the stripes in the shower curtain as well. Our bathroom now is just bright and vibrant where before it was much darker and even a little dull.
My kids love their pretty new bathroom, and they love using the Foaming Hand Wash to wash their hands. Something about foam makes it so much more fun! (And for grownups, it's so smooth and luxurious! I'm sure my guests will love it too!)
I am keeping a bottle of the Kitchen Citrus Bliss Hand Soap in the kitchen, as it's specially formulated to kill germs (and with all the cooking and crafting going on out there, we really need that!)
And, the Jasmine and White Cotton matches our gray and blue master bath perfectly!
How do you dress up your sink? Which scent are you dying to try first?
I'll see you back here tomorrow with a special Craft Lightning post: Recycled Crafts!
P.S. I will be linking up to some of these parties. Come party with me!
