I finally finished my master bathroom ya’ll! I’m excited because I started this bathroom makeover back in May 2016 yikes…and my indecisiveness on wall color plus life kept getting in the way of me finishing up what should have been a week long project. Well, 9 months later it’s done and I’m hella proud!
I wanted the room to feel romantic & glam without being too feminine, this is important, as I live in a house full of boys and I like to consider their taste and opinions when it comes to our home decor; I like to involve them in the process so that they can see their visions or ideas come to life and inspire them to continue to be creative tiny humans, so I decided on a theme…beach-y / coastal.

BOYS BATHROOM MAKEOVER
Okay let me start off by saying that decorating for boys sucks! I mean the options are so limited compared to little girl stuff, this is a fact and it goes for everything…clothes, shoes, accessories…you get the idea. Sure, you can shop online but what about those spur of the moment scenarios where you realize you need to hang a picture and make a Target run? Do you find what you’re looking for? Probably not. Anyway, our home has 2 full baths, one of which is in our master bedroom; The second bathroom is located off the upstairs hallway, this is the bathroom our boys and guests share, so it needed to be designed with both in mind and still have a little bit of me in it 😉 View Post
Shortly after moving into our very dated 80’s bi-level house we started making a to-do list of all the renovations and makeovers the house needed in order to become our HOME. That said, we had to give this list of things a priority level, and the way we decided that was by listing the projects from cheapest and easiest to most expensive and most extensive. This way, we could knock all the little things out of the way and slowly and with fuller pockets get to the major renovations eventually. I decided to make the guest bathroom ( our boy’s shared bathroom) cabinet my first DIY project mainly because I had the exact paint colors and supplies needed to achieve the look I envisioned, with the exception of the pulls which I purchased at HomeGoods for $10.
