The bathroom flip flop

Hold onto your hats because this post is going to get a little crazy. And when I say "crazy" what I really mean is "confusing". The kids' bathroom and the guest bathroom are both in the same hallway. The kids' bathroom is the first door on the right, and the guest bathroom is the last door at the very end of the hallway. The kids' bedrooms are sandwiched between both doors (the 2nd door on the left and the 2nd door on the right). Here's the floor plan to help get you oriented. When we moved in I put the kids bathroom between the girl room and the living room. It seemed like … [Read more...]

The bathrooms got a fast facelift

Moving day came and went, and we were all moved in. Now it was time to get settled! Well, first order of business? Showering.

No point in dragging it out and keeping you in suspense. You are welcome. I am super obnoxious and labeled each before and after photo just in case any of them pop up on pinterest. I am so stoked with how this room … [Read more...]

The kids’ bathroom mirror gets framed

The past few weeks I've been working on renovating the kids' bathroom. Today I'm going to show you how I framed out their mirror. I have never framed out a mirror before so I ended up putting it off in our house for more than two years. After completing one all I have to say is, dude, this is pretty darn easy. Expect me to go on a tangent and frame out all the mirrors in this house over the next month. Such a huge difference. I can't even believe how much of a difference this simple update has made. Just to recap, so far I've shared my plans for the bathroom complete with a … [Read more...]
