I hope you had the same sun-filled weekend that we had here. I have been enjoying the blue skies and sunny days that we’ve been getting this winter, as it’s usually gray and depressing.
I must have a touch of premature Spring Fever, because I’m acting like a hummingbird with A-D-D and have temporarily flitted over to a new project – my kids’ Jack & Jill bathroom. My apologies for the design whiplash you may be experiencing as a result of my gnat-like attention span.
As in the other rooms throughout the house, this room had flat paint. Flat paint. In a kid’s bathroom. Why? So, as you can imagine, it didn’t take long for my kids to fingerprint this place up in style, and this room was screaming for a new paint job. But, since it’s on the opposite side of our master bedroom, I didn’t hear its cries for help until recently. Cry no more – I hear you.
Mind you, I have more plans for this bathroom, but it’s off to a fresh start. Here is what I started with – not terrible, but let me repeat, there was flat paint in here, and there is no window in this space, so I wanted it to be lighter and brighter.
The towel bar had come halfway off the wall, so I pulled it off and patched the holes. The idea of a towel bar in a kid’s bathroom is kind of an oxymoron isn’t it? You can my meager attempt at getting my kids to hang up their towels in the photo below.
I’m going with a different approach moving forward. I have a plan.
This little over-the-toilet thingamajig was here when we bought the house. I have more ideas for this area as well.
First things first. Paint!
In the midst of all of this paint madness, I even reorganized the linen closet. I didn’t take a before picture, but you can use your imagination. If you’ve seen one cluttered linen closet, you’ve seen them all, right?
