DIY :: Guest Bathroom Inspiration

...and a link-up for oh hey, friday. cuz that's how I roll.

In case you missed it, I posted other bathroom inspiration earlier this week. I've decided to forge ahead re-doing both at the same time which is probably a really bad idea but you know. Go big or go home. The main thing that needs to be done is paint and I might as well paint both while I have the supplies out and ready to go, right? Riiiight.

Anyway, our guest bathroom upstairs is also the girls' bathroom but I didn't want it to scream "little kids live here" so I tried to keep the decor toned down a bit. You can tell kids live here once you've spent .03 seconds in my house because there are toys everywhere and someone is usually crying. Just kidding. Kind of.

So, this is what I've come up with.

{ONE :: Accessories}

I wish I could have these exact things but that little bowl pictured below is like 60 bucks {on sale!} and that ain't happening. Inexpensive replicas and free printables are more my jam. I do love those letters though so we'll see what I can come up with when the time comes.

{TWO :: Textiles}

Currently, there is a yellow floral shower curtain hanging in the bathroom. Depending on what everything looks like once it's put together, I might leave it. Maybe. If it looks off, I'll probably switch it out for plain white.

{THREE :: Hardware}

We're replacing the counter/sink upstairs along with switching out the door hinges, knob and all the electrical outlets. It's amazing what new doorknobs and white outlets can do for a room. We've changed them out in both girls' rooms and the dining room and it makes everything look so much better. Currently they're 1980s yellow and gross.

{FOUR :: Paint}

These all pretty much look the same as samples on the wall but I think we'll go with Subtle Touch. It looks the most gray...

{FIVE :: Flooring}

We're gonna get ballsy and attempt to lay new flooring in the upstairs bath as well. Since we basically don't know what we're doing, we found this type of flooring that can be put over the existing floor. And we shouldn't need any heavy duty tools or anything so that's always good. And I think the darker color will look good since everything else will be nice and bright.

There you have it! Wish us luck! ;)

Linking up with the gals today...
