BoYS bathroom TrAnsformation

My boys bathroom is Jack and Jill style, which is nice, they each have their own space to mess up! Their bathroom also is used for X-tra guests so I like to keep it simple and clean.  I found some pictures of my boys when they where small.  I loved to toldake those candid bath tubs shots, they where so cute!~ I made some black and white photos and found some cheap distressed frames at Walmart.  I think it looks cute and it was all done on a budget of 50.00, that includes a new shower curtain, towels and a rug.  I bought the shower curtain from Walmart and it is the Better Home and Gardens collection. Thanks for stopping by and leaving me your nice comments.  I appreciate each and everyone and will be sure to visit your blog as well. Notice all my before pics where taken with my old camera. The new camera makes all the difference, It is A Kodak Z915 10mega Pixels, and I love it.  Not too expensive either.  My Mom bought it for me for my Birthday. Thanks Mom!~ This bathroom is hard to photograph only has one window, and is a U shaped, you can enter from my older boys room and then go out to the loft area.....Hope I gave someone a cute idea to use in their bathroom on a budget!~
BEFORE
 

AFTER

 
 ALex in the tub when he was 2, adorable!
B for Bath, Boys whatever way it works!
Jack around 2 years old as well in the tub! These where great  distressed
frames I found at Walmart for $10.00

 
I had my husband change out the builder light last year to this, it kinda has that retro effect, purchased that at Lowes $39.00, what a great deal!
 
Very simple transformation that perked up the space and made it a little more whimsy and fun in the bath.  Don't know how thrilled the boys are that there are pictures of them in the tub when they where small, but they have not said anything to me yet.


This can we bought when we first moved here, we found it at an old thrift shop and thought it was cute...works great in the bathroom.

Great transformation. Love the colors and the striped shower curtain looks summery and coastal. My parents went to UNC. One in Greensboro where I was born and one in Chapel Hill.

Adorable bathroom! Kids baths are so much fun to decorate and if it motivates them to brush teeth or use soap...:)

Hi Debbie! Nice transformation! Did you repaint too? I love the color scheme in the shower curtain, but not nearly as much as those baby pics of the boys in the tub. That' is so smart and appropiate for their bathroom. So Cute! I did a redo on my blog today and added in the stairwell, check it out when you get a minute. Have a great day!

I love that light fixture! Light fixtures are key in a room transformation. I think it shows attention to detail and your attention is great. And...I'm going to buy some of those frames!

We used to live in Spindale, NC. Ever heard of it? Do you live near there?

"B" is for Better and Beautiful!
I have pictures of my girls when they were little in their bath, too!
They haven't said anything to me yet- it's been a few years.
What a fun, yet mini-masculine space- do the boys love it or what?

Debbie, it looks great!! My kids share a Jack & Jill bath as well and I'm thinking of a makeover for both their spaces and the middle bath. Boy & Girl!! Any ideas?
