Kids Nautical Bathroom Reveal

By Seasideinteriors @seasideinterio1
Ok Ok so the bathroom is not fully finished yet.  We still need a few finishing touches, but it is pretty much there and the finishing touches, well they may take just a smidge longer! I didn't get a chance to create the artwork last week, so I thought I would snap some pics of how far we have come with the makeover.
If you didn't get a chance to read the process of picking paint and demo of the bathroom, you can read those here and here.
I created a design board for the kids bathroom that had a fun and funky feel...

We did change the accent color to be an apple sort of green shade instead of orange and we went for a soft tin shade with the lighting instead of the bronze, but everything else followed the original design board.
Here is how it was BEFORE...
Kids Nautical Bathroom Reveal Before was the linoleum floors, builder grade mirror and over head lighting, and honey cabinets.  The tile only went up to the top of the shower curtain.
And Here is the ALMOST AFTER of the Kids Bathroom...

Tile: Lowes Towels: Target Shower Curtains: Target Over head Lighting: Lowes Numbers and Hooks: Home Depot Soap Dispenser and Toothbrush Holder with Tray: Target Wall Paint: Sherwin Williams" Repose Gray in Satin Finish Cabinet Paint: Sherwin Williams" Indigo Batik in Satin Finish Trim Work and Ceiling Trim and Boarding: Benjamin Moore's Decorators White in Satin
Kids Nautical Bathroom Reveal The green towels definitely bring that much needed color addition to balance out all the navy and white. For the curtains, I wanted to do two floor length curtains, so I purchased three of the same Navy and White stripe shower curtain from Target and had them sewn together.

Above the wall numbers, I am going to place two pieces of artwork to bring in all of the colors that are in the bathroom along with an extra color or two.
Kids Nautical Bathroom Reveal I really like the tin colored goose neck lights that we chose for over each sink.  It gives a little nautical touch without being two much!
Kids Nautical Bathroom Reveal Originally we had painted the frame out that we put around the mirror the same BM Decorators White, but it didn't stand out and the frame around the mirror and the counter top where two completely different whites.  The counter was creamy white but actually looked yellowish against the frame.  Dustin's solution: Paint it blue like the base cabinet.  I got a package deal when I married that man.  I really love working on projects together to see what we come up with and or disagree on.  In the end, it always turns out.

Kids Nautical Bathroom Reveal  Soap and toothbrush accessories from Target to bring in a little of the soft caramel color that goes with the trash can and will fingers crossed SOON go with the artwork for the wall.

Dustin rolled the cabinet and sprayed the doors and drawers and he did such an AMAZING job with the finish!   For a kids bathroom, I think this is the perfect color.  For the life of me, I can't decide on a rug for the space.  I have gone through about 7 rugs and none of them are it :(  I will keep searching.  
A comparative BEFORE AND AFTER!!!
Kids Nautical Bathroom Reveal
A BIG difference!!!
In this shot on the right, you can't really make out the tile work on the back wall, but we took the white tile all the way up to the ceiling so that it is the same height as the shower curtains. 
Thanks for stopping by and seeing the progress.  
Next up for home projects is the Mud Room Makeover that we will be in a race to finish up before the kids start back at school.
