jake's bathroom makeover



My upstairs guest bathroom has been pretty ordinary for awhile. I'd been thinking that I might make it a little more fun for Jake since its really his space. 

Nautical theme? Don't mind if I do!
 





Sorry for the lack of lighting here. This bathroom has no windows so natural light is a nadda. Sad.

For those of you that follow along on Instagram, you saw a sneak peak of the bathroom walls a few weeks back. I hand painted the blue ombre waves {yes, it took for.ev.er}, but I'm super happy with the end result!

I also added in a few fun accents like a fishing net and some nautical knicknacks. 
The simple pallet piece that I made is my favorite. 










Love this little fella' on the back of the door for Jake's towel.

And here's a good look at the waves along the back wall...









Here's my attempt at a panoramic. Which really looks kinda wonky and oddly spaced, but whatever, you get it, right?





All in all, I'm pretty happy with it. It's calming and sweet but also a little fun.
And Jake loves his "ocean room". Can't ask for much more than that!

    1. I didn't record the exact colors I purchased (though I am a Valspar gal!), but I only bought three colors: the dark navy, a medium blue and the lightest blue. To make sure the ombré flowed well, I actually used those same colors to mix the other shades, a little lighter or a little darker depending on the wave. Hope this helps a little.

    1. See above about the paint colors. The sign I made by hand. It has two wooden braces on the back that the horizontal boards are attached to. Then I painted it white, distressed, and added the words.

  4. WOW I love your walls. What kind of paint did you use? I am so fond of marine. My bed is a ship. When I was younger I wanted to become a captain. Unfortunately now it is just a dream. Thank you for sharing your great bathroom. Greetings!
