The boys’ beach themed bathroom is finally finished! The bathroom is small so finishing it should have been faster but, like your home I’m sure, it was just one thing on a huge list of “To-Do’s”. We started by painting the room in a Benjamin Moore/Pottery Barn color called Atmospheric. This color is amazing. It’s in our playroom also. The color is a grayed out blue that changes in different light. I love when color does that!
My two boys share this bathroom and if you have little boys then you share my pain! Little boys (and big ones) never seem to be aware that the big long bar attached to the wall is for their towels! No, the floor seems to be a much more attractive destination for wet towels. So I told myself if I make the towel bars more interesting then MAYBE, just maybe a towel will inadvertently land there. We removed the boring builder grade, plastic towel rod and replaced it with three boat/dock cleats. I ordered them online through a marine supply website.
Isn’t this a fun nautical look? The boat cleat towel bars were inexpensive and the cleats themselves can be used as a towel hook if the boys are too lazy to hang the towels on the ropes.
Next I tackled the plain mirror. I made a frame out of pvc base board molding and then decorated the frame with glass and stone mosaic tiles. Click on the tutorials below if you want to learn how to make your own framed mirrors.
I’d really love to paint the maple cabinet but I can’t see to convince “The Man” that it would look great! He’s very against painting wood (don’t worry ladies, I’m working on him).
And the shower curtain is quilted white cotton. The small square quilting complements the small squares of the tile mosaic on the mirror, helping the different textures of the room pull together.
This little beach shack found at Home Goods was just irresistible.
The wood beach sign was also found at Home Goods. Though it really should say “Rinse Beach Sand Here”, because it’s pointing at the shower. And boy does that shower collect a ton of sand!
And you have to have a few starfish around a beach themed bathroom, right?
I’m so glad to finally have the boys’ beach themed bathroom done and now it’s off the start the girls’ bathroom!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my spaces with you!
