Decorating the Kids Bathroom

This week I decided I need to tackle decorating our kids bathroom.  I am basically starting with a blank slate.  White rug, white shower curtain, white towels. 

I'd like to see the decorations in this bathroom kept very simple (the white tooth paste splashes on fancy trinkets just won't work here), with a few natural elements brought in and maybe a splash of color.  What color?  I'm not sure yet.  Any suggestions?  2 boys and 1 girl share this space so I will be keeping it fairly unisex and not disney themed.

 For some reason the colors look off in this photo but it is the same white based granite as my kitchen and the backsplash tile actually pulls out the brown tones in the granite very well.  Not exactly what you are seeing in the photo above.

 Here is that timber again that was on my to do list last week.  Some sunny weather has finally showed up so I am heading outdoors with this chunk.

 First I brought it into the kids bathroom and propped it on top of the legs I purchased at Home Depot last week to make sure it was going to fit the space the way I envision it to.  I'd hate to waste all that hard work.

 Here we are out on the back deck with my hunk of wood and trusty Rigid Palm Sander with 60 grit sandpaper.

This is what it looks like after about 15 mins of sanding and 6 squares of sandpaper later.  The oil stain that is on our exterior timbers is definitely doing its job protecting the wood.  It runs deeper than I thought.  I will either be sanding for days and going broke buying sandpaper or I will have to come up with another solution.


  1. thank you so much for posting on the dragons fairy tail. I had a blast planning his cars party and you are welcome to take any of the ideas.

    I love the rustic bench you created. I've never seen anything like it. I am looking at re-doing our bathroom soon.

    take care! great blog.
