Boys' Bathroom

Our boys share their own jack-and-jill bathroom. When we moved here I had this vision to make the bathroom look like they were stepping into a tropical vacation. I'm not so big on "theme" rooms, but thought their bathroom could be an exception. I had hubby construct the frame for the shower so it now appears to be a tiki hut. My inspiration came from the two framed prints I found. The paint used is aptly called "citron" and, by far, is the wildest color we've ever used in any of our rooms. However, it works. The back half wall behind the shower is painted light blue, like a sky, and I painted in white clouds. It's a fun room. Lots of quality conversations take place here while overseeing baths, tooth brushing, and messes, too.

Take a peek...





I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Ours was our own. No parties, no guests, no activities. We got much needed rain and had fun watching movies, Target shopping, reading, napping... Ok, the minis are both crying....collision while playing. Got to run be a mom again!

Ok, I asked Mr. Pink (hey that may be his new name!) what he did for the tiki hut. He said he constructed a rectangular frame using 1x2 furring strips. I picked up 2 grass skirts at Party City and spread them out so that about 4-6 inches hung over the frame. He nailed it to the wall. The shower rod is hidden under the frame and we're finally at the point where we need to add a curtain. Baths are getting too messy!

Belle in Bloom- Thanks for nice comments! Come again. Isn't Paris Daily Photo the best? I love it!
