Wren's Bathroom Makeover

When we moved into this house, Wren's bathroom was all beige with a horrible black and silver striped shower curtain. We knew that we'd want to update the bathroom before she moved from her baby tub (which we kept downstairs in the laundry room for ease of use).

For Wren's Valentine's Day gift last year, my sister asked if she could do the bathroom. I was so excited! We shopped all around and finally settled on this adorable shower curtain from Target, and then my sister spent a whole day painting the entire bathroom.
After she painted, it still took several months to get it all together because I waited for specific things to come together. I found these adorable Children Inspire Design pictures on Zulily for a great price. They went so well with the forest theme on the shower curtain that I just couldn't pass them up.
The shower curtain, striped towels and the bathmats are all from Target, though I'm pretty sure they don't carry the shower curtain anymore.
I found this mirror at a great little thrift store last spring. It was all gold (see below) and I happened to have some paint left over from when we painted our living room, so I used that to spruce up the mirror. Prior to this, there was just a big standard square mirror on the wall...I think the mirror really makes the room!

Love those details:
This cabinet is just a standard cabinet and was hanging in the bathroom when we bought the house. It used to be white, so I just used the same brown to make it go with the colors better.
I added these sweet drawer pulls from Cost Plus World Market.
I love these pictures because whenever we get done with bathtime, Wren and I go through and point to all the different animals on the wall and on the shower curtain. It's really helped her to point out specific animals.
I searched forever trying to find some coordinating sink accessories, but it was nearly impossible. I actually found the brown cup in the back on an endcap at Target for $3. Then I found the toothbrush holder, soap dispenser and trashcan at Kohl's.

These are also from Children Inspire Design and came with a packet that I used in Wren's playroom.

Wren loves her bathroom! For the most part, she really likes bathtime. Granted, she doesn't love getting her hair and ears wet, but she thinks splashing is the funnies thing ever.

Check out my little bitty's long locks!:
And I just love this picture too much not to share. Crazy girl with some crazy hair!!

As I mentioned before, I did some work to the mirror and the cabinet. Here's what they looked like before:

Also, for anyone interested, I did a video tour on my vlog...if you want a closer look at things, here's that video:

Hope you enjoyed!!


  1. Walmart has a large water cup in the baby bathing section that has a soft bendable side for around $4. I had it for A. You place the soft bendable side along the top of their forehead, they lean back, you pour, and it never gets in there face! They come in orange, blue,yellow, and green I believe. Let me know if you want one and your WM doesn't have them and I'll see if ours does.

    Love the bathroom, btw!

  2. So FUN! I love everything about this sweet girl's powder room:) Especially that Target shower curtain! Stay Fashionable!

  3. So unbelievably cute!!! And once again you've inspired me to do something...this time to makeover Carter's bathroom (we actually haven't done anything to it since we moved into our house 4 years ago!!)!!

  4. You did a great job in the makeover. I can't believe this project only took a short amount of time. I hope our boiler repair contractor does the same.

  5. This is a very cute bathroom! The kid must have been enjoying every bath time with all the kiddie bathroom fixtures and the orange wall. Cool!

  6. That's a pretty colorful bathroom. Your child must be enjoying his bath here. With this nice loom, you must have a good quality pipe bursting equipment in case of leaks.

  7. Wow, Fantastic Blog,I Feel this is one of the most essential information for me. And i am very happy reading your article. But wanna say few general things on your blog , The site style is great, the articles is really very nice and Informative. Good job...
