Girls Bathroom Makeover Update

We started the girls bathroom makeover back in June, and it is still not entirely complete, so let me preface this post by saying that this is indeed one of the longest house projects of all time.  We are forever battling the time issue (like there is never enough of it), with two full-time jobs and two kids, we are BUSY.  But I always try to remind myself that there will come a day when our babies aren't babies anymore, and they won't want to hang out with us, and then we will be sad and have all the time in the world.  So for now, we will embrace and love the crazy (and the constant to-do's that come with it!).

When we moved into our house four years ago, the hallway bathroom was a hot mess, a pretty horrible 80's style avocado green and a vanity that was not in the best condition.  But we had so much we wanted to do in other places of the house, so we pretty much put that project on the back-burner since it was still in working condition.  Fast forward to the end of last spring, we gutted it and started from scratch!   We are not planning on this being our forever home (mostly because we want to be in a more rural area of VB), so we did the updates pretty classic and mainstream to make it more marketable.  We went with a grey & white ceramic tile for the floors, a white subway tile for the wall by the bath tub, and painted the walls white with white trim.  I have this thing with white.  I really wanted pops of gold (although I'm not sure how smart that is for selling, I just couldn't resist), and we found some pretty affordable gold fixtures on Amazon.  Everything we have purchased up to this point is linked at the bottom of the post, I love how it just feels so clean and bright, with pops of color added in by the accessories!



My husband is currently building the vanity (we went with grey!) and I can't wait to share that, along with the lights and mirror we pick to go with it, after it is all complete.  For now, I am just happy that we have a place to give the girls a bath in again, I still cannot believe we made it through an entire summer with a two & five year old, and no working bath tub in the house!

Lastly, I wanted to share the sweetest line of spa products for little girls.  Poshy Girls recently sent us over the cutest spa kit, and the girls love it, mini facials sand pink glitter soap!!!!  The mini facial tub is pictured above in the last photo from the girls bathroom, it's a favorite at our house.  You guys must check them out, such fun products for little girls!  Happy week ahead, friends!

(We got our tub in-store as the display model for $75, it was incredibly dirty and full of glass, so we bought it as is and cleaned it up!)

  2. We looked at similar tile for our downstairs (basement) bathroom. We still haven't pulled the trigger on anything, but I like seeing how yours turned out!
