Cassie's house - the boys' bathroom

My little sister Cassie recently moved into her first home.  They completely renovated it and it's beautiful.  This is one of several posts, showing the makeovers.  Her commentary will be italicized and mine will be in normal print.  Welcome to Cassie's house.

So I must admit that I'm teasing you all a bit.  I'm saving the best for last.  I'm going to show you her boys' bathroom today and then tomorrow I'll show the gallery wall.  Then on Thursday I'll show you the kitchen.  It's an awesome transformation, so hang in there.  (There might be more of her home in the future, since there are still projects going on, but that will be the end of the series for right now.)

Alright.  Let's take a peek at the bathroom before they moved in.
BEFORE:

AFTER:

Here's what she did after painting the room a light beige:
I painted the cabinets with 2 sample cans of Behr brand paint so it cost only $6! I l kept the counters but changed out the light fixture, hardware on cabinets, and faucet.


BEFORE:

AFTER:

Then added pictures from Jo Ann fabrics and got some fabric to make a shower curtain that pulled it all together.



 

The bathroom ties in the vintage transportation theme she has going on in the boys' bedroom.  Without any major costs (like countertops or tile) the bathroom has a totally new look.  Buying the sample paint cans is also a great tip if you have a smaller project like this one.

Tomorrow we'll look at the stairway gallery wall.  See you then.  Thanks for dropping in.

  4. Amazing! Do you know where she got the bus cover for her Kleenex? My boy is obsessed with buses right now.

  5. Nice!

    I dont know if it is the lighting or the cabinet paint and toilet rug but the tile does look like it has been switched out to a gray!

  6. LOVE it! That's such a great transformation. I'm going to be redoing my kids bathroom too. Unfortunately, it has to stay gender neutral due to the fact I have boys and girls sharing it. OH...and LOVE her son's name...saw it on the stool...;) That's my son's name too! Camden...;)

  7. Wow you guys have an amazingly talented family! The transformations have been awesome :) Quick question on the cabinet paint...was it a special blend of Behr paint (ie indoor vs outdoor, paint with primer, special wood paint with a laquer finish, etc (I don't know if that even exists and I could be making up words!)? We want to paint/redo cabinets ourselves but I'm nervous to take the plunge but yours look amazing!

  8. I bought those exact wall arts in her bathroom but they're just giant stickers... what did she do to make them look like that?

  9. This looks great! I've never thought of buying sample paint cans for smaller projects. Genius!

  10. The kleenex holder is from Target a while ago but they might still have it.

    The paint is just Behr brand sample interior paint. If you are nervous about the paint chipping you can always put a coat of polyurathan over the top too.

    The pictures came that way I didn't put the stickers on canvas or anything.

    Thanks!

  13. Was your paint latex or oil based and did you brush or roll. I started on our bathroom vanity a year ago and well lets just say two doors are white and one piece of trim while the rest is ugly wood color. Do I need to sand or anything? I love how yours turned out!

  14. I can't wait to see the kitchen. Soon please! I am getting ready to do board and batten in our newly remodeled lower level and I am always looking for new inspiration. We are also using mdf for all the trim. You really did an amazing job so far. Looking forward to seeing more!

  15. Incredible! I love the artwork, manly but still gives us girls the deco look we crave. You're totally a genius! :o)

  16. That's fabulous!! I absolutely love the colors! I'm dying to do something great with my daughters' bathrooms. You inspired me!

  17. Um, if you need a new home for the hummingbird picture, you could send it to me! :)

  18. Is the shower curtain all one piece or did you have to seam it?

  19. Just wondering if you made the towel rack or did you buy it? We have a cheapy towel rack but it's getting pulled out of the wall. Love the look.

  20. Melissa Ann - You should sand first. There are a lot of different techniques. We usually use latex paint. If you think the area will get a lot of wear and tear then you'll want to follow up with a coat of poly. Good luck!
