Bathroom reveal I-SPY style

I am done with the bathroom (just in time too, the hubs come home tomorrow...I think). This room re-decor (is that a word?) was on a budget.  The total for everything (including the new towels which were my splurg) was less then $30.

Yep, 30 Bucks!
 
Let me warn you.  First this room has no natural light AT. ALL.  So the pics are terrible.  Second, this room is TI. NY.  Soooo small.  You can not shut the door unless you are ALL THE WAY in the room.  Don't even think about opening the door if you are standing at the sink.  It's terrible.  But I am glad I don't have to share MY bathroom with the kids :)  So on with the make over.

This is the bathroom Before pics..... (remember I warned you)


 For these last 2 pics, I had to stand as far back in the shower as I could to get them.  TI. NY!

So, I told you I was a little low on funds completely broke for this project, right?  So I had to do some serious thrifting to not spend everything I had in the bank stay on budget.

Here is where the I-SPY comes in...
These are the awesome finds that I found over the last several weeks.  (sometimes the thifting Gods smile down on us... I love those days).  See if you can see where I incorporated them into my new bathroom decor.




Before pics of the thrifting finds...





P.S.  The star fish was a dirty rose pink color.  I forgot the before pic of that.  My bad :) 



Plus, remember this item. 


I LOOOOOOVE how it turned out.

Now for the reveal.  Drum roll please........... 




 There are still a few more things I would do if money permitted (either replace or at least paint the ugly peachy/pink counter tops  blah!)  

Plus I still plan on adding a frame around the mirror out of old barn wood (the same kind I made the towel holder thingy out of).  I just haven't had a chance to go pick it up yet.

But all in all I am very happy with how it turned out.

Heck I may even let visitors use the bathroom now hee hee 

 Please, Please, Please let me know what you think.  My one debate is the canvases over the toilet....are they to much???? Let me know.

Joni said...

Thanx guys. You are all so nice. Jami, I did make the life guard sign out of an old piece of plywood. It was, easily the funnest project in the room to make.

Very cute! I love the sign above the towel hooks and the wooden board with the washcloths! Very cool. Great job! Just re-did my bathroom as well. It's so nice to have a finished space!

Eileen said...

I love all your beachy touches. Especially the board that holds the little towels. I also really love what you did with the thrifted jug. The twine around it looks so nautical! Great job.

Amy said...

Beautiful!! I looooove the lifeguard sign! Also - where did you get the towels? I would love some similar in our bathroom! Great Job!

So impressed! $30! I love a beachy bath, and I love all the fun signs you made. I am hosting a link party on my blog this weekend about words/quotes (The Weekend Word Search). Please consider stopping by! Your project would be a great addition.

Absolutely adorable! Love it all - the counter-top is even reminiscence of beach sand (at least in the pics! But maybe it is the light?) I want more details on the shower curtain! Is that a sheet and finials? I can't quite tell from the pic.
