In the Mood for: The Boys’ Bathroom.

boysBathroomI am super excited. We don’t even close on our new house until February 21, and I’m already making mood boards! The house was built in 1978 and parts of it are very dated. The boys’ bathroom is perhaps the worst offender. I have a few ideas to freshen it up and since it’s so small, I think it’s going to look adorable.

First order of business is to tear down the awful mirror and sconces. Anyone want?? Also, there is a sliding glass door attached to the tub that will have to come down. The tile surround is not terrible—sort of your typical khaki stone—but I’d love to replace it with fresh white subway tiles. And the floor (I can’t even remember what is there now) just begs for this modern take on a classic mosaic.

The room, like much of the rest of the house, is going to get a fresh coat of Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter, my favorite, on the walls. I plan to paint the wooden vanity a rich green, Valspar’s Lime Twist. I think the hardware can stay. The mirror will be replaced with a mirror I already own and new, inexpensive sconces (hello!! $18.50 each!!) will go in. I’m even toying with wallpapering just the mirror wall with this cute, graphic pattern from Sherwin Williams.

The sliding door will be replaced with the shower curtain we already have and still love. And then we’ll be done! With one room. Of many 😉


update: here’s their bedroom, just for fun. nothing new here—just a fresh coat of paint on their dresser. hello green!

  1. If changing out the bath tile is one of those projects that you can’t get too right away and it’s bothering you, you can paint it! We painted the ugly blue/brown tile in our old house and it turned out great! It took only about an hour or two and made a world of difference. Just a thought!
