It’s Fat Tuesday! It’s Mardi Gras! I live a loooong way from New Orleans but we can party from afar don’t ya think? Well, I don’t have any fancy parties to go to but maybe me and my boys will get some Mardi Gras beads from Party City and have a dance party while Dads at school. haha! My kids would love that! Any reason to have a celebration right?
Anyway, today I wanted to share with you my little bathroom. It’s a tiny little thing but it fits our needs just fine. Since it’s such a small space, I wanted it clean and simple. I’m not a fan of bathroom extras unless you have the space for it. I like my bathroom decorated just a little but squeaky clean!
This was my original idea for the bathroom. I went that direction for most of it. I ditched the idea of the curtain/window treatment because the window lets in so much light that we rarely need the bathroom light on, except at night of course. I love the sunshine through the window so I opted to leave the window bare with just the blinds.
The paint color is Glidden Pebble Grey. It’s the same color as my living room and my hallway.
I got my rug from Urban Outiftters and I love it lots! I have had to throw it in the wash a few times and it’s done just fine. I love the color and texture of it! You can get it at Urban Outfitters for $29. They have other colors too!
I ditched the idea of the ruffled shower curtain since the rug has tons of texture going on. I got a white shower curtain from a thrift store and the mustard fabric from wal-mart and sewed on the stripes. I appliqued them on and let me tell you, I won’t do it again. It wasn’t easy to get the lines straight. I’ll cut the strips and sew them together I I do it again. 🙂
I hung my “You make me happy when skies are grey” printable above the towel bar for some easy artwork.

Finally, I update the vanity and built in cabinets with some white paint (Behr Swiss Coffee) and a new knob on the vanity to dress ‘er up a bit!
Next step in this bathroom is cleaning, painting and organizing the insides of the cabinets. I’ll show you that when I get it done and when I get brave enough! 🙂
What do you think? Are you a yellow fan? Do you like it?
