The Kid’s Bathroom

 

Let me first start by saying that these pictures suck.  This was the hardest room to photograph.  I was standing in the bathtub and the the vanity in order to get some of these shots…so I apologize.

There is A.LOT that I want to change in this room, mainly…everything.  The bones suck people.  The tile is cracked in places, the vanity is useless, the tub is gross, the medicine cabinet…again, useless.  And I don’t understand the tile on the one wall, half way up.  We have that great stuff in EVERY. SINGLE. BATHROOM in our house.  Ugh. 

All of these things I would like to fix, but for now we are living with it.  At least I made it look cute, right?!?!

My main issue with the vanity is that it doesn’t have drawers.  The girls need drawers.  It was honey oak when we moved in and I painted it black.

Above the toilet I hung the floating shelves.  They hold the wash clothes and soap that were always being screamed for from the shower before.

The porthole may be my favorite thing in the room.

The whale was found at Goodwill for $3.  I just spray painted it.  It used to be a really bad blue and they drew a mouth and an eye with a sharpie on it.  It was so ugly, but I could see it’s potential.

I notice now that I didn’t get a photo of the tile floor.  It’s black, sorry.  Smile

when you have friends…

that contribute to your hoard, you know you have found a good one!  My friend, Kelly over at Modern Mothballs has been on the road for her job a lot lately and when she does she always finds an antique mall or two to stop in.  We share a love of vintage, good deals and home d├ęcor…we are like peanut butter and jelly.  Kelly will always send me a text that she is stopping and then she starts sending me pictures!!

I love it, it’s like treasure hunting from my couch!

Here are some of the recent finds that Kelly has brought back…

And because Kelly is just the sweetest thing in the world, she sometimes picks up things for me because she knows that I would LOVE it!  She bought this for me at a Vintage Market recently.  I just love it.  I have him sitting on my sofa table in the living room.

I have already listed all of these things (except the gazelle/ram thing) in the shop.  Do you have BFF that shares in your vintage obsession or a shopping partner in crime?

Charlotte’s Room

Hi Friends!  Today I want to share Charlotte’s Room with you.  I feel like her room is the most complete out of all of the bedrooms in our house.  But of course there are still things that I want to do before I can call it “DONE”. 

Her room really was completed on a budget. Most things were found at Goodwill or thrift stores or DIY projects. The only things that I bought new were the triangle decals, rug, duvet, and a few pillows.

So get ready for tons of pictures!

Lets start by talking about the big elephant in the room!  I found that guy at Goodwill and couldn’t get it in my cart fast enough.  I had no idea where I would put him but he was awesome.  It is literally a stuffed animal head, so it isn’t heavy.  That is way I feel comfortable with it above her bed, it really doesn’t weigh too much.  I also got her bed from Craigslist for $20 and spray painted it.  And the watercolor art was done by me…don’t look at it too closely, I am no artist!  The “Get It Girl” pillow was purchased on Etsy from Michelle Dwight.  I just love it!

The dresser I got off of Craigslist for $15 and just painted it bright yellow.

The bookcase was made by my stepdad when Caroline was baby, it lived in her room for several years.  I really need to find a way to conceal the intercom box.

I found the afghan blanket at goodwill and the hot pink triangle decals are from All 4 Walls.  The duvet is from H&M.

I made the curtains using a no sew tutorial.  I can’t remember which one I used but they are all pretty much the same…Google it.

The large white elephant was from Homegoods.

The brass giraffe bookends are a vintage find, they are available in the shop!

I purchased this little print from Groopdealz.  It’s from a shop called Cicada.

Well, that’s it!  I hope that you like it, I know that Ms. Charlotte does so that makes this Momma happy!  Have a great day, ya’ll!
