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. 🙂

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?
It looks so fresh and clean! I LOVE the shower curtain and rug! Thanks for sharing the printable! 🙂
Love, love, love it! The rug has the colors of fall leaves- and that printable- too cute!
I love yellow and gray together! This is so great!
Mallory, I JUST finished painting my first floor hallway yellow. It’s like instant sunshine, isn’t it?
I LOVE IT! It looks totally fab! The bathrooms in our house are totally hideous. Thanks for the reminder that the little things can make as much of a difference as the big ones. :o)
So pretty. I love gray and yellow.

Looks really nice. I like the unexpectedness of the rug and the happy stripes with the crisp gray. Lovely.
Love the color combination and that rug is so much fun! Great update!
love it!! You’re pictures look amazing!! So bright and cheery!
Bathroom looks great. I would say it was very hard to applique those stripes on, a bigger project than I could imagine. Saw your post at Tip Junkie. Thanks for sharing.

I love the way it turned out. ..so cute! How does the paint look in person? Does it read taupe/tanning or is it blue grey ?
I really love the way you do it. Very creative. I will try to do this at home at place it on our bathroom. Nice way of decluttering and recycling. Cheers.
