kids bathroom (part 4-almost done)...

Our bathroom is pretty much complete. We're thrilled with the way it looks, but even more so with the way it functions :)

View from the door. We got rid of the towel bar and opted instead for 4 pegs from which to hang towels...



Ikea cabinet over the toilet. Not so much a thing of beauty, but believe me, storing towels in the bathroom sure is. I'll probably put some sort of shelf below the cabinet but for now we have a large empty space...


Probably my favorite part of the bathroom. Our vanity was made by the man who is doing all of this work for us. I showed him a few pictures that I had saved from magazines, and he exceeded my expectations. I wanted an open vanity to keep things from feeling too cramped with a shelf at the bottom so that we can slide a stool underneath. I also asked him to place the sink off-center so that we would have one large portion of countertop available rather than 2 small sections with a centered sink. The butcher block countertop was leftover from our kitchen remodel 4 years ago. It was the perfect size for this project. I think I will paint the bottom of the vanity white and then seal the butcher block. I may eventually had a skirt around it if I feel like it gets messy, but for now, I like the openness...



Tub & shower fixtures:



We still have to paint the beadboard & trim, add a second coat of paint to the walls, seal the grout, paint the vanity, and sand & seal the butcher block. Since this room has zero ventilation, John will be doing most of this, which means that it will most likely take awhile to get done (basketball may be over, but tennis season starts tomorrow :). But hey, at least it's functional. We all love our new bathroom!
