House Tour- kids bathroom

Hi friends!
Today I'm sharing another room in my house tour-
my kids' bathroom.  

bathroom door icons, bathroom for children, kids bathroom, bright and colorful bathroom

kids bathroom, door icons, men and women icons

I saw the idea to put cute icons on a door somewhere- 
another blog perhaps? I'm not sure.  
So when I found some wooden replicas at Michaels, 
I was thrilled.  I painted them black and put them on the 
door to my kids' bath with Command velcro adhesive.

I went with a yellow and grey color scheme, 
with a little aqua thrown in.  
The shower curtain is an old one from Target.  

bright and colorful bathroom decorations, pennant over large mirror

We replaced the light fixture about a year ago.  
As we went through that process, I was going to frame the mirror 
like I did in my master bath, but the mirror is off center from the vanity.  
It isn't really obvious, but if I framed the mirror, it would be very obvious. 
 I thought about taking the mirror down and putting something else up there, 
or moving it over.  
But there are outlets on both sides of the mirror and the light fixture 
is centered over the mirror and not the vanity so it would still look funny. 
 Anyway, that was a long way of explaining that the mirror is 
staying put and not framed for now.  
I did make a pennant banner to drape across the mirror to 
add a little somethin' something to it.

I painted the vanity cabinet black.  
I love the way it turned out!! 
 It looks so much better then the faded cherry wood stain 
that was there before.

kids bathroom, bathroom decorations, buckets for storage, towel hanging shelf

This shelf (from Hobby Lobby) holds my kids towels 
(they were all supposed to be white towels but my littlest 
threw a fit until I bought him blue- kids just don't understand color schemes!)
I sewed strips of ribbon onto them for easy hook hanging.  
The shelf holds buckets of my kids toiletries.  
The You Are My Sunshine sign I made just for this space.

This is the frame collage that I've already posted about.  
I framed scrapbook paper, made a Love One Another printable 
and covered the glass of an old picture frame with 
chalkboard paint for a little message board.

It's a very bright and happy space for my kids. 
And I love it too!


  1. LOVE the icons on the door! What a cute idea!

  2. Adorable Bathroom! Love it! Love the fresh pops of color!!! Nice job! I am working on my kiddos bathroom... lagging big time though! ha!

  3. Love the vanity, the sign but most of the all the people on the door ... SO cute!

  4. Ok I need you to come visit for a few days and help me make over my whole house.. ok well maybe it would take a little longer but YOU have such an amazing eye for decor and I LOVE IT!! Wish we lived closer!!

  5. I love it!! I've been meaning to get my kids' bathroom done, but have been procrastinating! I saw those boy/girl signs before somewhere too, but I can't think of where. Great job!!

  6. I am totally stealing (i mean honoring you by doing it too) the idea of the people on the door. That is absolutely darling!

    I also love the pennants around the mirror. The whole room is super cute!

  7. Hey Candice! It's adorable! I'm still thinking grey and yellow for one of our bathrooms... or our bedroom! Who knows. I just need to find a little time! I love what you did with this bathroom!

  8. This bathroom is FANTASTIC! Love the color scheme you went with! I think you might have pushed me over the edge to paint my boys vanity black! I have been wanting to but was to intimidated! Was it hard? Would love for you to come share at my first party!


  9. i love the color combo in here, and definitely the door art!

  10. I love the icons on the door! I saw some vases that look like that but they are much thicker. I wanted to put them on my bathroom door but figured they'd be too big, so I'm hoping my Michaels has these! Too cute! I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the color scheme. It looks beautiful! :) I'd love for you to link up at my Throwback Thursday link party!

  11. Super cute bathroom! I have vinyl boy/girl icons on my bathroom door ... I love them! Your makeover looks so great ... love the color scheme.

  12. Very nice! I'd love to add this to the bathroom collection on my blog! Just email me a quick OK and I'll let you know when it's posted. PlayfulDecor (at) gmail (dot) com. Have a great weekend! Nan

  13. I am inviting you to come and share this in my Show Your Stuff blog hop:

  14. I love love love the icons on the door! What an adorable idea!

  15. Cute bathroom, not only for the kids!

  16. Thanks so much for sharing this at my Throwback Thursday party! You already know how much I love it! :) I hope to see you again this week and can't wait to see what you share!!

  17. Love the figures on the door! Those are fabulous (not that the entire project isn't gorgeous!)...

  18. I love your bathroom! The little "people" on the door and the pendant on the mirror are definitely my faves!! Wonderful work!!!

  19. Love it all! The people on the door, the pennant hanging on the mirror, the sunshine artwork. But, the strip of ribbon on each towel...genius! My son's towel often falls off his hook and onto the floor, now I know how to help him. Oh, and you've made me want to paint the vanity in my bathroom black. Great job!

  20. Love the icons on the door!! I'll feature your post in my blog, with the proper link, of course!


  21. So cute! And fun too! I love the sign on the door and the bright yellow sign. Great little kids bath :)

  22. Bright, fun and inviting - and I love the little people on the door!

  23. Do you have a full-face picture of the bathroom door (boy and girl icon)? Or can you give me a link to where you found these at Michael's? SO cute, and my daughter wants me to make her some for Christmas!

  24. I love the boy and girl for the bathroom door. I am going to Michael's tomorrow to see if I can find them. Our guest bathroom is at the end of our hall and I would love to put something on the door (that husband would agree with) so people know which door to go in. I hope they still have them since I think they are plain enough that it will fly with the husband.

  25. Question for you: What did you use to paint the cabinet in your children's bathroom black? Black stain? Black paint? High gloss if paint, or satin? Would like to know as I am considering doing my kitchen cabinets in black to get rid of the orangish wood tones that go with nothing but the late 80's... :)

  27. I have been looking EVERYWHERE for the male/female decals for the door. Where did you find them? Please help! :)

    1. Hi Mikayala, I found them at Michaels in 2012. I haven't been able to find them there since. I looked on etsy and found something similar in vinyl: Good luck!! :)

    2. Awesome, thank you so much! :)

  28. I love the idea of giving your kids their own bathroom. So they can feel more grown up and have their own responsebility too. But you should take somre security measurements regarding the water damaging in the bathtub and around the drains. Im just saying, have had some problems with this in the past :)

  29. It's adorable! I'm still thinking grey and yellow for one of our bathrooms or our bedroom! Who knows. Jewelry Display Ideas I just need to find a little time!


Thanks for your comments!
