It’s finished!  Ruby’s bathroom is complete, and I think it’s such a sweet, bright, and beautiful space.  And it was all achieved on a tight budget.  Let’s look back at what it looked like before….

 So much weirdness.  The bizarre countertop extension, the light fixture box configuration, and Jon’s favorite part, the mirror that extends in front of the toilet.  All of it is now updated and pretty.

Ok, here is the video room reveal video!

This was a pretty easy room to remodel, believe it or not.  I’ve already shared how we painted the cabinets, and the new vanity countertop installation.  I chose hooks instead of racks because I feel like for kids, they are so much more functional.  I kept the existing tile because it was white and in good condition, and if I was going to replace it, it would probably be for a simple white subway tile so replacing it just seemed silly.  I also kept the floor, which wasn’t my favorite, but it would have busted our budget, and most crucially in this case, our timeline.  We were pushing to get moving on the kitchen, which is now underway.

Tomorrow I’m going to share how I did those darling raindrops on the wall (I did it all during Ruby’s nap!), the ceiling, and the moulding.  And I’ll also share how I did the mirror, more about the hardware fixtures, and the step stool soon.

Until then, here are a few of the products I used in the room:

Hippo Toothbrush Holder

Gray Woven Vase


Mint Arrow Jewelry Dish (Target, but I can’t find it online anywhere)

Hexagon Towels here and here (on sale!)

Fresh and Clean Print (she customized the colors for me, free of charge)

Vintage Plaques: antique store find

Shower curtain 

If I missed anything, feel free to ask.  I’m happy to share.  What do you think?  Not bad for under $1200 from top to bottom.  See you tomorrow with the wall and ceiling details!

    Hi Jen, I am curious if the decals stay on during like really steamy showers? I had vinyl in my bathroom once and it lifted. Let me know 🙂 Thank you

    Hi Ericka, thanks for your question! So far they have held up great and I haven’t had any issues. Although we only give Ruby baths in the tub, and the occasional house guest showers in there as well. I think the paint we used also made a difference. I prefer a high quality paint for a bathroom, because if the moisture. Hope that is helpful!

    […] When I’m searching for a basic mirror, the thrift store is always the first place I look. I can almost always find a great option on the cheap. They may need a little love, but mirrors can be pricey, yo, so I always keep an eye out for some inexpensive glass.  And that’s exactly what I found when I went searching for a mirror for Ruby’s bathroom.

    […] I doubt my daughter is the only child with a fascination with washing her hands.  She loves to turn on the faucet, hold her hands under the soap until I squirt some on, then rub her hands together under the running water.  So, when I spotted this sweet little stool at a thrift store for $5, I knew I had to refinish it for her bathroom.
