A Little "Loo" Re-do

Not much going on in my neck of the woods, so on a whim, I decided to link up to the Nester's "10 Minutes to a Room you Love" Linky Party.

Our kid's bathroom is growing up. It went from fishy . . .

To beach house chic . . .

Amazing how much it improved just by changing the shower curtain. The new colors are some of my current favorites: soft aqua's and coral pinks (bet you never would have guessed). I LOVE this fabric!


I threw into the mix some photos of my favorite little beach bums (there were fish pictures in these frames) . . .




Spruced up some beachy knick-knacks . . .

Found a friend (she was in the bedroom) . . .


Added some cottonball storage (I found this one at the thrift store for $1.50 - matches perfectly!) . . .

Pilfered an iron basket from the kitchen to house a few rolled up towels (just trying to spa it up a bit) . . .

And Wa-La . . . a whole new look! Wonder how long it will last. Now I need to quit playing around and go fold some laundry. To see more 10 minute makeovers check out the Nesting Place. I am sure that is what I will really be doing.

Great job! Love it!

Very cute! I REALLY like the shower curtain. I have some girls who would like that fabric for a skirt or curtains. I also really thought you pictures were neat. Esp. the one up to his neck in sand!
