from boring to beautiful {part two of a bathroom makeover}


Are you ready to see the awesome "after" of my boys/guest bathroom?!! 
I am so excited about how it turned out...happy, bright and fun!  It's like a whole new bathroom! 
I'm so thrilled with all of the details and little finds that add so much to the room.


Everything was inspired by the Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap® smartphone app that I used from the previous post.
Once I knew the color I was putting on the wall, thanks to my friends at Sherwin-Williams, I went from there, searching everywhere I went--and could find online--for things to go with the look I was going for.  And, what I couldn't buy, I made myself.


For starters, this "Wash Your Hans" printable.  You can go HERE to download it for FREE!  What little boy doesn't need a little reminder?  And the fun play on words just makes it fun.  The little "M" and "A" hooks were finds from a $1 bin at Michaels! Perfect for each boy to hang his own hand towel from.


The curtains were the next thing I "made" and are simply a few yards of a favorite print. I didn't even sew the edges, just left selvedges and hemmed both ends. :) Easy, fun and BRIGHT! :)


I tried really hard to make it a place where both little boys and guests would love.  While I admit that Iron Man may not be the first choice for a guest bathroom, I think the whole vintage feel of it makes it work.  I hung it on the wall with Command Strips...still wrapped in the plastic I bought it in. :) Some happy new guest towels carried the wall color to this little wall. 


All of these except the "I belong with you" were hanging in this bathroom before but didn't have nearly as much character as they do now...with that fun Sherwin-Williams paint color behind them making the orange pop!  You can make your own "I belong with you" sign by following my tutorial HERE.  :)


I thought I would show a little peek of how the ColorSnap app works...you take a photo of the item you are trying to match...drag that little circle around to the specific color you want to match and...


...it pulls a Sherwin-Williams color that matches!  It's like paint magic. :) It inspired this whole makeover! :)

Thanks for having a look around!  I hope this inspires you to do some making over on your own and maybe gets you into your own local Sherwin-Williams!
