- The walls. The color was dark, the paint job was messy, and it just wasn’t a good fit for a tween girl.
- Storage. HUGE issue. Small countertop, small area under the sink, no shelving, etc. The towel bars that were there were hung so low you couldn’t hang a towel on them without having them fall into the sink or toilet – gross.
- Function. You should be able to reach your towel when you get out of the shower – not have it draped over the back of the toilet or hanging behind the door. You should also be able to use your toothbrush without having to dig through hair bows, toiletries, and other crazy stuff first.
- Cuteness. Yes, it’s a bathroom, but it’s a tween girl’s bathroom, so it has to be cute, right?! I wanted her bathroom to be an extension of her bedroom, so style definitely had to be considered.
Knowing my goals, I made a plan. I started with the mess under the sink.
A lot brighter and cheerier than what she had in there before, don’t you think? I love it! I love it so much, I may use the same color in my office (if I can ever get around to painting that room…).
With a few shelves from Home Depot and some craftiness on my part, we added shelving to maximize storage space and add some flair. Along with a few new additions, like the shower curtain from Wal-mart and the bar and pink cups from IKEA, her bathroom is super cute and perfect for any tween girl!
Now feast on the eye candy. I’ll share some DIY goodness from this room with you next week!
