I went to Florida for a couple of days with a friend, my mom had to have emergency surgery in Germany and I almost flew home. The bag is actually still sitting in my closet ready to go! The new baby, now called Walter on paper (no matter what everyone calls him) got really sick after stealing and eating a slice of pizza which then resulted in me spending a ton of money at the vet and getting pet insurance. Just FIY, I got FIGOpet insurance. Im thinking of writinng a blog post about it after I had it for a while.
I’m setting things in motion right now to have our entire downstairs floor replaced and we are switching from laminate to vinyl plank. I’ll be so glad when that massive project is over and done with.
I’m also planning on giving my kids’ bathroom a little makeover. Well, it’s mostly my daughter’s bathroom because our son tends to use our bathroom all the time. He loves having his things in our organized drawers.
I have always dreamed of ripping out the stupid builder standard bathtub to put in a beautifully tiled walk-in shower with a glass door, some new floor tiles, and a new vanity but in reality, we just don’t have the funds righ now and probably never will. Yes, I could reach out to companies to see if they’d sponsor my content but sometimes I run out of steam to do that and I also know that you guys are in the same boat as me. Sometimes a small makeover and working with what you have is better.
My daughter wants me to make it look like a castle bathroom with some fun details and that’s what I’m going for. Remember the vinyl stickers I had added to my checkerboard floors (click HERE to see the post)? My daughter ripped them all off for me in her bathroom and we are leaving the tiles as is. The only thing we need to do is brush on some grout renew (HERE).
Our master bathroom still has the stickers though…

I’m happy to see the black walls gone. I love dark walls but it wasn’t working for us in the bathroom. The dust, tooth paste stains and water streaks drove me crazy and made everything nlook filthy at all times.
I bought her a new fun shower curtain. First I thought that I was going to paint it all a matching green but I ultimately decided on using the light cream color in the curtain that matched nicely with our existing tiles. After just painting the kitchen green (click HERE), I just crave a different color.
I ordered a new marble vanity top and am planning on painting our old vanity and mirror the same colors as the walls.
In addition, I’ll be adding the same wall molding as I did in the dining room with some new crown molding and bigger base molding to give it that “castle” feeling that my daughter asked for.
Spare Bathroom Design Plan
I love the bright and fresh feeling of where this is heading. This will be a very slow process though because inbetween there will also be the major floorinng project. I can’t wait to scratch this all off my list.
Have a great weekend my friends.
