A few weekends ago we painted the girls' bathroom. It was a bit spontaneous, but we didn't have enough time to take on the bedroom, so we just grabbed some leftover paint from our master and got it done in day, taking turns watching the kids.
It was previously the color of eggplant and before that, it was teal. We know since you could still see areas that weren't painted or that had chipped. However, a good majority of the white tile was covered in purple, so there's that. Oh and the windowsill was randomly asparagus green. We primed, painted, and scrubbed the tile floor and had ourselves an almost new bathroom for free.
We still would like to make some thrifty updates to complete the space and have it be a bit special for the girls, without being obnoxious for guests.
I was recently introduced to BoomBoom Prints, a new start up that's connecting parents with graphic designers and other artists. The site allows independent artists to simply upload artwork, then BoomBoom Prints turns their work into family-oriented products like onesies, baby bibs, and wall art. The wall art comes in a variety of sizes, canvases, or even matted and framed. While I have a tendency to avoid things that are overly of the moment, I completely fell for this Stella Flamingo print. Ashlynn loves "Feen-go-gos" and of course, the pop of pink is perfect for a girls bath. The orange accents and splatter style print keep it from making the space feeling overly juvenile, which is nice for when guests are staying over.
We still plan on painting the existing double vanity either charcoal or black, attempting a DIY roman shade, getting a runner for in front of the sinks, and finding a brighter shower curtain. I'm hoping that the biggest expense comes in the form of taking down the current mirror and replacing it with a more modern option.
Ordering my BoomBoom Print was super easy, I searched through tons of different prints before making my decision and once I did, my order was printed on high quality 100lb matte stock paper, shipped for free, and it arrived in just a few days. Now that it's framed it's hard to tell that it's even a print and not an original work - the husband actually thought I painted it at first!
