Blue Bathroom Makeover plans

Hello there!  Labor Day is on the horizon - can you believe it?  Labor Day weekend for me will be all about laboring around some house updates.  First up on the list: make over the kids' blue bathroom.

Right now the walls are a drab tan, which matches the drab tan tile.  The color of the wall and tile make the space feel sad, dark and a little dingy.  I bought warm white paint (Sherwin Williams Alabaster) for the walls. I think the white will make the room look bigger, brighter and cleaner.  Here is the room as it looks now.

And here's the plan.  First, I need to touch up the white trim all around the room.  I can tell that someone had painted the room bright neon blue before, because I can see it in spots on the trim and tile.  See?

I am going to remove the plumbing supply looking towel bar and toilet paper holder.  I think they just hopelessly date the space, so I'll invest $25 of my own money and pick up something new at Target.

The shower needs a new shower head.   Easy enough to replace. I also need a shower organizer to hang from that.

I also want to put a row of hooks on the back of the door for the kids' and guests' towels.

The rusty silver switchplate and outlet covers are out of here too. I'll replace them with basic white.

Finally, the room needs some art!  I am going to use my $.70 print from Marshalls (which used to live in my first home's laundry room) and pick up something else for the large wall.  As for accessories, I am going to embrace the blue (as I have no choice!) and use a lot of white, green and blue in the space.  I may add some hardware to the cabinets.  I have a ton of pulls that I bought in bulk a few years ago.  I'll see.  Oh, and I found the blue and green bath rug shown above at Target and all of the green accessories at Target, too.  The white tray and tissue holder are from Home Goods.

And that's the plan!  I don't think it will take me very long to make this transformation. Stay tuned for the big reveal! Have a terrific holiday :)

See you swoon,
