Wordful Wednesday-Kids Bathroom Remodel/Update

Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, only WITH words. It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter, but in a good way. More info. in my tabber box titled WW on the right. Thank you for playing along!

Ever since we purchased our home almost 2 years ago, my husband has been busy at work making each room more comfortable, functional, and all around better looking.

The kids bathroom just finished going through it’s second round of “revisions” and I couldn’t be happier with the result.  The bathroom is much more beautiful, and it’s definitely more functional.  The original pedestal sinks just didn’t work well with 5 children, and the lack of storage was an issue, so changing to a cabinet made a lot of sense.

This is what it looked like before (stark white walls when we first bought the house, dressed up a bit with color on the walls before the latest installment.)

And this is what it looks like now:


The crown moulding and wainscot (my husband can do amazing things with wood and MDF) adds finishing touches to the room and pictured below are some of the elements that pulled everything together.  I love, love, love the granite, my husband wrapped the mirror with maple that he stained to match the cabinet, and the faucets add a little bit of a traditional feel to the otherwise clean lines of the cabinet.

Have you done any home improvements lately that I shouldn’t miss?

Don’t forget to hop on over to my co-host  Amanda’s place to see what she has to be Wordful about today.

    Your remodel is BEAUTIFUL.

    The only remodeling I’ve done lately is telling Gracie to remove her cardboard box dollhouse from the living room. I don’t think that really counts. 🙂

    How lovely! We’re doing some home improvements around here too. Hubby is painting most of the house in a wheat color very similar to yours. I’m tired of white walls.

    Holy frickness – that’s an amazing transformation. I need someone with that kind of gift living with me.

    I think it’s time I found a boy to marry.

    But only one who can first prove to me that he could do that.

    I am loving it!

    We recently redid our kid’s bathrooms also, I wish we could get a double sink in there, it is still on the todo list for that room.

    Sigh …. I ADORE the deep brown of your cabinets, and the beadboard/wainscoating.

    I have an idea. In your infinite amounts of spare time, just hop a flight, and plan the complete re-haul of my house. K?
