“Beachy” Bathroom

Posted by on Jul 15, 2012 in bathroom, chalk paint, sewing | 25 comments

My family’s favorite place to be in all of the world is the beach.

The ocean rolling in as I sit in my beach chair,

beside my sweet hubby,

reading the latest decorating magazine,

 while my girls play. . .

Ok, back to reality!

We are lucky enough to be able to make it to the Gulf of Mexico every October!

I would love to decorate my entire house in “beach” attire.

(My dream is to actually have a beach house one day, so I should save all of my ideas for that one!)

So, the one place that I could get by with the “beach” theme was the girl’s bathroom.

Here it is!

(This was practically impossible for me to take pictures of – there is no natural light at all!)

It is the tiniest of spaces.

And, yes I have 3 girls that share this bathroom.

Luckily, the oldest is only 12, so it has not been an issue. . .yet!

I did complete one quick little project for this space.

I painted the waste basket with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

I just can’t get enough of the stuff!

I already had this plain basket.

I added masking tape for stripes.

I used Duck Egg Blue and then Duck Egg Blue mixed with Old White.

I removed the tape, and had a nice nautical waste basket!

I made the shower curtain “pre-blog.”

It was super simple!

I got 2 beach towels and sewed them together.

Then, I added grommets to the top!

That is it!

So very easy!

No hemming or anything!

I have 3 large mirrors in this tiny space trying to give the illusion of a larger space!

(Maybe the girls will not realize just how small it is?!)

So, it doesn’t exactly make me think that I am at the beach. . .

But, all of the family pictures in here of our times at the beach always make me smile!

Life to the full to you!

  24. Hi Melissa,

    Great job – and that’s from one beach lover to another. I love the shower curtain, mirror, stripes on the can – you did a fantastic job. The room doesn’t look small at all. Stopping by from your comment on the Beach Accent Lantern. Thanks for stopping by! Love your blog.

  25. This really is a lovely space. Actually, I think it’s a good idea to have kids share a bathroom–good training for real life! And if the bathroom is as pretty as this one, who can complain? 🙂
