The first thing we did was to paint the bathroom and I always find it amazing how much just painting can change a room. Now don't get me wrong, I liked the color it was before (Sherwin Williams Kilim Beige), it is just that color is on every wall in the house so I wanted a change. Unfortunately I couldn't find a before picture, but you can view it on Sherwin Williams' site here.
I wanted to bring pictures of the girls into the bathroom because let's be honest I love seeing their pretty faces everywhere in our home! I wanted to create a cute way for them to hang their towels up instead of just on the back of the door. I found a picture on Pinterest that was for an entryway and got me to thinking I could do something similar for the girls, but instead of letters I could use their pictures.
Bonus, I am married to an amazing photographer so insert kids into the bathtub to capture a cute picture :) I already had two 8x10 frames from the previous decor of ocean scenes...did I mention this decor was also from my hubbie's bachelor days. Slight problem, the frames were blue and I wanted white. Time to whip out the can of spray paint. I used Valspar Paint + Primer in One, White with a satin finish that we purchased at Lowe's for $4 a can. I applied two coats to each frame and let them dry overnight. I also had purchased two 8x10 mattes for a 5x7 picture.
If you are looking for cost effective white frames, Ikea has tons to choose from. I actually just purchased a handful of them on my last trip there for $4.99 for an 8x10 frame (5x7 matte included).
With much love,
