Get the Look: Colorful & Classic Bathroom

I've always been so inspired by this bathroom.  The serene and classic beadboard backdrop, the fun punchy colrs and of course, that adorable little girl.   I thought I'd give recreating it a whirl.  You'll have to provide your own adorable child though :)



Towel Rack - A vintage quilt rack is reinvented with a coat of pretty blue paint and given new life as a towel rack.  Why not right?  If you prefer the look of the spindle-y one in the inspiration image, try searching eBay!

Shower Curtain Fabric - If you can sew a straight line, you can sew a custom shower curtain.   Shower curtains are 72" wide so match the patterns up on 2 lengths of fabric and finish the hems with some Stitch Witchery.  Use a grommet kit to punch the holes for the shower rings (use an old shower curtain as a guide).  Seriously, couldn't be easier!  Maybe I need to do a DIY shower curtain tutorial to convince you...

Beadboard Wall Panels - I love the all the way to the ceiling look in this bathroom but even just taking it up to a plate rail height would be fantastic.  Such a classic look!

Vanity Mirror - Don't be distracted by that tragic gold crackle finish!  A few coats of that fun, punchy coral color and this mirror is well on it's way to being fabulous.
Wastebasket - $8.00 at Target and just waiting to be transformed.  

Letter Stencil -  Keep it classic with the Caslon font.

Pedestal Sink - I think the room really works because the traditional lines of the pedestal sink provide a great foil to the fancy, Rococo style mirror above it.  Total opposites yet so at home together. 

What do you think?  Do you like this look?
