welcome home, part 3

This is my kids/guest bath. Most of my home is pretty neutral, but I wanted to do something fun for the kiddos. Sorry, it was difficult to get good pictures. The space is so tiny.


The mirror is a frame from ikea that I painted red. My daughter brushes her teeth all by herself now, hence all the splatters on the mirror. We changed out the light fixture to a discount outdoor light from our local Lowe's.


I painted the bath stratton blue by Benjamin Moore. The wooden letters have been painted the same red as the mirror. The window treatment is a basic roller shade that I mounted upside down. I then put a tension rod through the bottom (which is now the top), to hold it in place. I am still looking for the perfect shower curtain. I want a white with a few red stripes that doesn't cost fortune. Any ideas?

I love the idea of the frame on the mirror. We have two gigantic mirrors in our bathroom..that I hate..this is a great solution for that. I will be in the lookout for frames! :)

How did you mount that?

i actually mounted it with a twine. there's a small rustic brown nail directly above the mirror to hold it up. the frame is light wait. super easy!

What a fun red mirror. How creative you are! What brand of spray paint did you use? Is it metal?

p.s. you are more than welcome to add me to your blog roll. Thank you for asking!

to spray paint the plastic frame i used rustoleum. the kind that comes with the new sprayer and is good for plastic, metal, etc.it was so much easier to use.
the frame was mounted over the standard mirror that came with the house. we were afraid to try to tear it down.

I am sure by now you have a shower curtain but anyhow, in my bathroom I have an inside plastic curtain and an outside fabric curtain. The inside one cannot be seen and the outside one matches my bathroom.
