When we moved into our house, we had zero children. I was about 6 months pregnant with Mary Ella though, and one of the things that I absolutely loved about the house were the 2 kids' bedrooms on one side of the house, and one thing I REALLY loved was the fact that they were connected by a huge Jack & Jill bathroom. The bathroom had a low, kid friendly tub and double vanities; seemed like it was meant for siblings. And growing up in a family of 3 kids, each of us less than 2 years apart, I knew that bath time would get crazy in our not-so-distant future (well, not as crazy as it's about to get, but you know.)
What's really funny is that I painted Mary Ella's room pink, and the 'other room' I happened to paint blue (which is now Sam's room, coincidentally), and the bathroom I painted lime (like, really lime) green.
The bathroom has been girly since Mary Ella was a baby; I bought all the bathroom accessories at PBKids on a super, super clearance (because I cannot afford anything PBKids unless it is on super clearance.) So the rugs, shower curtains, and accent towels have all been this PB daisy garden pattern, full of pinks and screaming "girl."
I've been meaning to update the bathroom for a long time but just haven't been able to get around to it. But I finally bought a few things at Target and have made a little progress. I still have a ways to go but wanted to update while I had the pictures fresh on my mind. I didn't do much; just changed the 'all girl' bathroom to a 'boy and girl' bathroom with some cheap accessories, a new shower curtain, and new rugs.
I basically created a boy vanity and a girl vanity. Sam's side has turquoise accents with a rubber duckie soap dispenser. Mary Ella chose the owl soap dispenser and of course pink accessories.
(All this stuff is from Target.)
Mary Ella is proud to have 'her own sink' now, as she calls it.
(Those foot stools are from the Target dollar aisle!
Mom used her Cricut machine to personalize Mary Ella's; gotta get Sam's done too.)
I went with the blue/turquoise shower curtain and kept one of my original rugs in front of the tub, so that the bathtub area would still be for boy AND girl.
Now, if any of you have seen any cute kids bathroom ideas, particularly ways to personalize the space with pictures or something for that empty space on the vanity (something that can be removed easily so I can put my extra changing pad up there for after bath time), or any other cute ideas, send them my way! Tag me on Pinterest or just let me know. This is a work in progress.
One thing I want to get when the budget allows are these cute hooded towels! They have a duck and an owl to match the accessories I already bought. But a little at a time will have to do!
