Framed Illustrations and Flowers

wall decor for the bathroom

A year or two ago I found a children’s book illustrated by my favorite illustrator, Allison Jay, and framed some of the pictures for Elliot’s room. But it didn’t really go with the rest of the theme for his room, so they’ve sat in a closet since then. And one day I thought to put them in our bathroom/laundry room. Duh! It’s perfect wall decor for the bathroom!

I have a third frame on another wall with another illustration, and the two frames in the middle each have a silk flower with some patterned paper behind. The two middle frames are from IKEA (I had white and needed black so I spray painted – blessed holy spray paint!) and the others are 10″ x 10″ from Target.

Now this previously drab room has some beauty and I like that room so much more now!

What are your bathroom wall decor solutions?

I have my children’s foot prints stamped with white paint on brown paper with each in their own frame. There too cute to pass by with out smiling, especially as their feet grow bigger.

I have NO ideas for my bathroom, that’s why I absolutely LOVE this one! Especially because it’s fast and so easy that I can make it a family project. Thanks for the inspiration!

We love to fish so my husband thought we should paint the bathroom a sea blue. Well, the paint bled through the tape onto the ceiling so we painted the ceiling too! Now the bathroom looks like you are submerged in water so we added ceramic mounted fish and turtles to the walls to add to the feeling. We thought about making the ceiling into the bottom of a boat but never got around to it.

I love that idea! Now I will be checking out the children’s book section at D.I. a lot more. We recently bought our house and haven’t updated the bathroom yet. It still has a “an old lady lives here” vibe!
