Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when I said that I had an itch to re-do my kids’ bathroom? Well, last night the Hubs had a meeting, so I got to work with a can of paint and a brush and went to town on that bathroom. And now, less than 24 hours later, the bathroom mini renovation is done! Well done enough that the itch is over and I can mess with it more as I like.
Remember what it looked like before? Curious George swinging in, and while cute, he never really stole my heart.
And remember the inspiration I found while in Montana?

We’d bought a package of some vintage post cards which I just popped into a $12 frame. I think on 4 frames I spent maybe $50 max.
I had 2 prints like this one of the mountain goat which were an odd size…maybe like 10×16 or something. I didn’t want to have to have custom mats cut because that gets more expensive, so I bought 2 of these glass floating frames for $10 a piece. I like the result with the wall showing through too…doesn’t look as bulky as if they had full mats either.
And just because I want you to see the true humanity of a 20 hour room makeover with just one person doing the work, I thought I’d let you in on a little tip I used this time.
See. I had to move the towel rings lower. They were always too high and I’d never messed with them before. There were MASSIVE holes in the wall which will take a few days to repair for the putty and everything to dry properly, so what do you think I did? Yep…covered them up.
