I am slowly revealing the rooms of our new house, hoping it gives me time to make them a little more presentable :).  Last week, I showed off HJ’s room…one of the cozy-est spots in the house.

Today, the much less exciting BATHROOM!

HJ’s bathroom is also the main bathroom in the house, so while I wanted it to be fun for him, I didn’t want it to scream, “KID’S BATHROOM!!!”.  So I had to take it down a notch and go against my thoughts of the cutesy shower curtains I came across.  I also love the crisp and clean look of white bathrooms.  HJ and I both agreed to paint the bathroom a grey/blue and leave everything else white.

The bathroom is a bit snug, so it was hard to get “great” pictures (sorry!).

Wow, those lights look briiight.  This is when you first walk in the door (the car is HJ’s bubble bath).

The white shower curtain is from Target.

The kid theme we did go with?  Whales!  I love whales!  HJ’s little froggy step stool is what we use to brush his teeth and wash his hands.  He is always trying to heave it over to the sink (he is quite strong enough…yet).  See that little wall indent where the stool is?  I would love to get some white shelves there.  Someday.

Here is a close up of the cute wall art from LullabyArt.  Target also had some whale items available this summer and my mom found these cute hand towels


And there ya have it, the whale bathroom!  Probably the most boring room in the house…whoops.  Least it can only get better!

Day 16: I took a half day off work…because the most wonderful hair dresser I know travelled from Des Moines to give me a cut and color.  She hacked off around 6 inches in my kitchen.  I reacted with “ohmygodwhthaveyoudoneitissofrikkenshort!”.  But secretly, it looks a little sassy…I will post pics eventually!

Holy crap I can’t believe we are almost halfway done with my list…I AM NOT READY TO BE THIRTY!!

3 Thoughts on “Bathroom Reveal

  1. very cute bathroom! Also question just bcos you mentioned brushing teeth…how does HJ do with brushing his teeth? Do you use regular toothpaste? I have the hardest time with my (2yo) daughter brushing her teeth. She lets me do it fine but I just can’t get her to spit she always swallows it lol. I’ve been using the training toothpaste but wonder when I should switch to regular and how I get her to understand the whole spitting concept.

    • He does pretty well with it. My dad is a dentist so I just asked him…he said if you use a pea size of the regular toothpaste it shouldn’t be at a level that would be harmful if swallowed. But if you are worried, continue using the toddler toothpaste until she is better with spitting.
