Girls Bathroom {Painted} Gray

This weekend we took on an unexpected painting project! We decided to paint the newly redecorated girls bathroom. Paint was on sale and the room is so small that we thought it would be a great little project to tackle over the weekend. I am so glad we did it because the feeling in the room is so much more calm, crisp and airy.

The color we chose a light shade of gray and it is called "Quiet Rain" by Behr. Whever I paint a room this small I always paint the ceiling to make it feel more cohesive.

I love the pop of color from the aqua blue wall hooks. I got both baskets from Goodwill for $1.99 each and although I love how they match the wood tone of the vanity but I am thinking about spray painting them aqua blue to match the hooks. What would you do?

Princess in Training

The very first princess dress-up that we bought for Arielle has been handed down to her baby sister, Averi.  When we bought this Mermaid costume for Arielle she was two and half and it was a little big on her.  Averi is 19 months and it fits her very well.  She is ALL belly!

Arielle is graduating from Kindergarten in two weeks...I can hardly believe it!

Pedestal Table {Nightstand} Makeover

I really wanted a white round nightstand for our beachy guest room makeover so when I found this one on craigslist for $10 I knew I could make it work.  I'm so glad I finally took the time to do this makeover because it gave this room new life.  All it took was a good sanding {thanks to my helpful husband for doing this part for me}, three coats of white semi-gloss paint and it was done! 

I'll reveal the rest of the room later this week...
