Before & After: Super-Cute Girls’ Bathroom

***Edited to add: The following re-do IS NOT MINE! I only helped with the artwork in the room.  My best friend and her husband are responsible for the amazing transformation you’re about to see.  Please give them the credit in your comments.***

I’m featuring another project from my best friend’s new home today, so I can’t take credit for the amazing transformation you’re about to see!  Well, except maybe a little bit of credit for one small element….you may remember this artwork we made a few weeks ago:

Now I’ll show you how the whole room turned out! When they moved in, the bathroom looked like this:

And now, it looks like this, there’s our artwork hanging on the wall to the left:

Check out the gorgeous custom made window treatments and shower curtain.  Notice the cute crystal doorknobs (from Hobby Lobby) as a substitute for the traditional rod.

bathroom4Wait, you haven’t seen my favorite part yet!

She found these two matching large mirrors for $15 each from two separate vendors during our flea market excursion earlier this summer.  After a little girly-pink spray paint, some ribbon, and some help from the hubby, she now has a beautiful and unique way to break up that large builder-basic mirror above the sink.  I believe they used super-strength double sided foam tape to adhere the frames to the mirror, and the ribbon is just taped behind more for effect than for support. I think it looks fab!

Here’s another inexpensive flea market find before, just a little too shabby:

And after, with a fresh coat of paint, the perfect amount of distressing, and super-cute accessories:bathroom5What a perfect room, any little girl would feel like a princess in here! I think she did a great job designing a bathroom that will grow with her little girls (ages 1 & 4).

I’ll be linking up with all the usual parties as well as a couple new ones.  Be sure and click on the buttons below to see more great projects!
