Girls Bathroom Makeover

Yes I'm alive! I know I've been MIA for a while. I have no exciting excuses for it either. I have been sewing and crafting, just not blogging about. Here is one of the projects I did a few months ago. 
Sorry for the picture quality. I found these free printables here. The I am a child of God printable is from here.

I bought a bunch of picture frames from Goodwill for $1-$2 a piece. I spray painted them all white. I used the spray paint that has primer in it. I then printed out the pictures I wanted to use. I bought the shower curtain at Ross for a little under $6, it also came with the hooks. The basket on top of the toilet was $2 from goodwill, it is the perfect size to fit two rolls of toilet paper. 

I really did not like the aqua color of the walls (it's much brighter in person). I think the white frames and neutral colors in the shower curtain tone it down a lot. This was a very inexpensive project and it makes a big different to me. I don't hate the wall color anymore, so that's good! And it's not super kiddy either. Which is good since this doubles as our guest bathroom.

I also added a little something to our master bathroom wall. This pictures show the true wall color. Luckily there is some natural lighting in that bathroom so it photographs better. I found this metal wall hanging (not sure what to call it) at a yard sale for $1. I bought some silver spray paint and painted it. Then I hung it on the wall. It takes up a lot of space which is good. There is nothing else on the walls in that bathroom. The only other thing we bought for the bathroom is the cabinet over the toilet. We bought it at Bed Bath and Beyond. Total waste of money if you ask me. It's not deep enough for towels, which was really the reason I wanted it. If you need it for storing other things I'm sure it will be great. We also bought the basket sitting on the shelf for $5 at Marshall's. I think I'm going to get all my baskets from Goodwill from now on since they are so cheap. I do the love bluish gray paint in this bathroom. The silver matches all the fixtures so it looks nice.

I hope everyone is having fun getting ready for the holidays!

Happy Halloween!

Glenda and the Wicked Witch

I bought these costumes last year at Target for 80% off. Glenda decided she wanted to be a butterfly, our compromise was dollar store wings. I did have to take the costumes in and the ribbons were already falling off, next year I might just make there costumes. But they loved them anyways! 

I hope you all had a Happy Halloween!
