Totally a Boys Bathroom

Hello world!

How is it freaking February already?!  Uck.

January has ffllloowwwnnnn by and I’ve not done too much.  Remember, when I had this goal of filling up my Chairish shop with 200+ items?  Well, I’ve been hunting and photographing (cleaning and fixing) like a beast, but I’m still a few short.  As of this morning I have 190 items for sale with 6 pending approval.  I’M SO CLOSE!!

But what that has meant, is that I haven’t been keeping up on anything in the house.  Mostly I’ve been doing maintenance which is the most boringest, tedious-est crap in the world.  You try keeping up with the stuff my 4 boys break/ruin and tell me if you don’t notice more grays popping in!!  The thing is, lately I’ve been feeling like I’m missing something…. selling and buying is REALLY fun, but I think it’s about time I got my hands dirty again.

Insert the room I try to avoid at all costs.

My boys bathroom.  Dun, dun, ddduuuunnnn!

Why do I avoid it?  As if you’re even asking me that… BECAUSE 5 GROSS DUDES USE IT!!  Regularly… If you know what I’m sayin’.  Very Regularly.

With that in mind, I want to update it but not put anything too precious in it.  You see that teal Ikea bath mat that was probably like $5?  That is the perfect thing in here… They can ruin it and mama won’t even care.  For the last year or so I’ve been hoarding things that could work.  I have a few mirrors that I didn’t use in the powder room, a new light, a toilet paper holder, etc… My goal is to update it for less than $100.

I will give you all the juicy details – Promise!!

The tile in the room is a chocolate brown with gray grout – it’s not the fanciest, but I really love it in here.  I’ll get a shot of the shower for next time, since I forgot to take one – duh.  Right now it has these bamboo decals on it, which were fun for baby stuff, but now that the boys are older, those will go.

Here’s what’s in my head…

I have it in my mind to paint the room the green color you have seen 100 times already.  I could do a blue… but green would nicely with the room.  We’ll see, it’ll be fun.  I’ve picked up a few samples to make sure that it won’t be too dark with the brown floors and the teal vanity and black granite.  The ceiling will stay gray, but a new coat will go up… For the life of me, I can’t find the original gray that I used in here and I need to do a bunch of touch ups.  Painting ceilings.  My favorite.


I picked up some sample pots last week, so I’ll snap a few photos of ’em to see what y’all think.

Any ideas on how to remove that granite?  Seemed like a good idea at the time… Oopsie.

I think that’s it for now!  I’m off to patch!!
