|Yes, those are underwear hanging from the shower door. Keeping things real.|
|Who hangs a towel ring that high? And what do you think of that cute little German clock? Tres Manly, no?|
Yes, that is a sparkly, fishy shower curtain, with fish hooks. Yes, there is underwear hanging on the shower door. Towels do not usually get hung up in here, because the cheap-o towel bar on the wall falls apart when you look at it. Much better suited to impromptu semi-naked sword fighting.
In short, a room in desperate need of a little something. White walls, ivory tile, and chrome. Blah, blah, blech.
A while back, I may have mentioned that I won some AWESOME RoomMates Decor wall decals from Kim at Reposhture. Or maybe not. It happened in May, and I let them sit around for quite a while!
The lovely people from RoomMates allowed me to have two sets of the decals I chose. Since I knew I wanted these for the boys' bathroom update, I chose the Extreme Sports themed wall decals, because, well, it's one thing all 3 boys agree on!
Here are a few shots of the application process, which was extremely simple, just peel carefully, and STICK!
|My little helper. He insisted that an entire sheet of decals be pasted right there. |
And was not happy to have his picture taken!
|Is it just me, or is it very obvious which decals were placed by the boys?|
|I really need to move that towel ring!|
This bathroom feels cavernous, what with the stark white walls and 10-foot ceilings. But, with the strategic application of some color, it feels less like a big white hole in the hallway, and more like a place to get things done. You know, like, washing, brushing & flushing.
We have a looong way to go in here, but things are moving along. Stil on our To Do List:
1. Replace the teensy cheap towel bar with something big & manly.
2. Frame the mirror (I'd love to pretty much cut it in half, but the landlord isn't so keen on that idea!)
3. ORB the shower door frame & sink fixtures - this is a BOY bathroom - all that chrome is always dirty!
4. New rugs - I already scored some dark red towels for in here.
5. Figure out a solution for hanging art over the toilet. It will be hung on the mirror...I'm stumped!
I can tell you that quite of few of these (thankfully!) repositionable decals will be moving around when we install our DIY Towel Rack. This is a project the whole family is getting in on, and I'm hoping it turns out half as well as it looks in my mind! Here are a couple of inspiration shots from my Pinterest Boards:
