Girls' Bathroom Spruce-up

Last week we spent a couple post-littles-bedtimes working on painting the girls' bathroom. I didn't take a "before" photo. Just imagine a dingy white bathroom with toothpaste smears on the sink and clothes on the floor up to your knees.

Here are a couple "after" shots:

The color is called "joyful yellow." It's not quite as
bright as this photo shows!

Close up of the flip-flops that go around the top.

The scripture we chose for this room.

I'd like to replace the light fixture and glue some seashells around a mirror. Projects for another day. And one week later, those clothes are knee-deep on the floor again. 


  1. Well, I am lovin' that!!! Way too cute!

  2. Oh yes -- I need you to come do that to the kids bathroom in our house!!! :) Are the flip flops stickers? a wallpaper border or what? It looks so cheerful and I love your creative ideas!!! Please post a pic of that mirror when you are done with it! I think I should borrow that idea for sure!

  3. Elizabeth,
    The flip-flops are Wallies wallpaper cutouts. Just wet and stick! I think we need to come visit you to get some seashells for that mirror!
