kiddo bathroom makeover

holy cow...contrary to belief...i am alive. so much has happened since my last post in april. i'd hope so, right? i mean, that was 6 flippin months ago. in may, the hubs and i found out we are expecting our third child. gulp. after the initial shock, we are so stinking excited. it's a boy! baby brother is scheduled to arrive november 17, if not sooner.

since finding out about our butterball, i have made list after list of all the projects that i need want to get done before 11/17. the first on my list was the kids' bathroom. i have been dying to paint that room since my first pregnancy but held off until we found out the sex of our "final baby".

this is the ultimate inspiration behind the personality and decor of the bathroom.  i found this print a few years ago at an art show in south haven, michigan.  bought the frame and the mat at hobby lobby for half off.  the mat was originally white so i painted it with some craft paint i had on hand. 

i settled on a bright green for the walls but was afraid of how overwhelming it might look in a small room. then, i searched the internet and found inspiration for adding board and batten to a room, here and here.

i decided to paint the top half of the room first. then the hubby helped put the boards up. lots of caulking, then painting the bottom half. i love how it turned out!

i made the sign that hangs above the toilet and the one to the left of the sink. i just used paints i had on hand, scrap wood, and my cricut. woop! woop!

i found the coordinating rugs, trashcan, toilet tote, and container at target.

the towels are from home goods. i love the bright colors!
and yes, we removed the door that separated the sink from the toilet/shower room.  it was always open and just in the way.  don't worry, it'll be replaced after my babies can bathe by themselves.  :)
just add cute babies and water...
