Girl to Boy Bathroom Redo

Hello Everyone!

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth.  I would like to say it has been busy around here but in a way, things have been a little slow.  Maybe that is why I haven't posted anything in a while.  I have been working on a couple of things but nothing is ready to show you yet.  Soooo, I'm going to pull another out of our last year's remodel folder.  This one is of a bathroom that went from a "beachy" feel girl's bath to a "cowboy" boy's bath.  I had taken down the decor before I took these pictures but you can tell the color and just let your imagination figure out a "beachy" decor.  So here are the before pics:

Now, I will show you the after pics cowboy style.

It made a huge change in this bathroom but is more fitting for my son.  I would also like to make a rustic sign to go in there. If anybody has any ideas on the saying let me know. I thought of "Howdy, Partner. Come in a sit awhile." but then I realized what room I was making this for and decided that wouldn't quite work. (Ha Ha)
There was much deliberation over the beadboard walls. I started the first coat and my son came in and said that he liked it. I told him it was only the first coat. He still liked it. I wasn't too sure. After looking at it and thinking a while, I decided to sand it down a bit and then add a brown glaze in spots. Now it looks kind of like an old barn. Anyway, I think it turned out pretty good. Let me know what you all think.  We also moved him into my daughter's old bedroom so that had to be done as well.  I will show those pics on a later posting.  That is all for now.  I will try to share something new in a day or so.  Just to give a little hint, there was a new baby born in the family (not mine) so I had to sew.  There are a couple of birthdays coming up next week so I had to make something.  Sounds like maybe some material for a later post don't ya think?
So until next time,
Have a blessed day!

  1. Looks great! You did an awesome job on the bead board. I also like the fabric on top of the shower curtain! Looks just right for a tween boy!
