Bathroom Reveal: Aqua & Yellow Wonderland!



I am TERRIFIED of home improvement projects!!
It takes a lot for me to attempt a makeover of any kind!
When Cutting Edge Stencils contacted me to review their stencils, I thought THIS IS IT!

I decided to tackle the downstairs guest half-bath.


It had been painted a neutral olivish color by the previous owners,
but it was otherwise boring.
Since it's one of the main rooms my guests see, I wanted it to reflect who I am!


I made this fun sign at a Pinterest party and decided it would be my color inspiration!


Since I love to decorate with photos, I dressed my kids in yellow and aqua
and took them to my favorite hill by our house for a photoshoot!


My Zinnia stencil was so easy to use, and I love the color pop and personality!


These fun balls and vase are from Ikea and matched the bathroom perfectly
 after a little help from my spray paint!


I hung my favorite shot in a great white wood frame from Home Goods!
$12.99, what a find for a big frame!


I love live plants in the house and these yellow flowers were perfect to freshen up the room!


These $1.99 aqua frames from Ikea were perfect!
We also framed the plain glass mirror with baseboard!
Great tutorial HERE!


My bathroom feels more like a sanctuary now,
and I'm so excited to show it to everyone who visits our home!

Stay tuned later in the week for a giveaway from Cutting Edge Stencils!!

What a great transformation. I like how the basics (walls and cabinets) are neutral but you brought in the great colors with the stencils and accessories. And with those cuties everything is perfect!
