Children's Nautical Bathroom- Series (From Basic New Builder Grade to Custom)

For some reason I just can't get away from the nautical bathroom theme for the kids bathroom. I have been doing it for years and I just feel like it's so perfect for this. However, as many times as I've used these decorations, in rentals, the rest of the bathroom finishings just ruined it. I am so happy to finally have faucets, lighting, flooring, and a wall color that compliment the theme!

So here is what I did: First the floors, cabinet color, faucets, and lighting had to go! I found the light fixture and faucets on ebay for way cheaper than Lowes and Home Depot! I specifically looked for ones with a nautical feel. I didn't want this room to be overly themed like the nautical section at Hobby Lobby threw up. I wanted it to just have that feel. 

The flooring is a peel and stick from Lumbar Liquidators, two 30 sq ft boxes cost me $50 and I have a bunch left over I'm sure I will use for another project. It only look me 2 hours and I just laid it right over the old flooring (as it states you can). Then I had the brilliant idea of using it to frame the mirror. HOLY COW! Look at how nice that came out! And for such a cheap and easy thing. I used adhesive to ensure a good stick. 

The towel rack is a few left over pieces of wood, secured together with a light grey stain and some boat cleat screwed in. I used a paint pen to hand paint the kid's names. I love how it turned out and how useful it is!

Look at that hideous floor!! YUCK! 

This oar was purchased from the sporting section at Wal-Mart for $12. I searched for a vintage one but when I couldn't find one I wanted I made it! It came in a blonde oak, I sanding it down, stained, roughed it up and painted some stripes. 

I love the way floor to ceiling shower curtains look. It gives the room a much more sophisticated feel and really draws your eye up. The liner is behind the curtains. I purchased a 84 inch from Bed, Bath, and Beyond (the only place I've been able to find them this length). Then I cut it down the middle and hung behind the window curtain panels.
