So this was my inspiration:
I literally stumbled upon it (with stumbleupon.com), it was made by Katie Daisy.



We bought a house this summer and the bathroom had to be completely re-done.  We took everything down to the studs and started from scratch.  Here's the results:



We installed new sink, toilet, and cabinets. The tub used to be gray, so I painted it white. Here are a few of the naturey aspects of the decor:




And the biggest handmade project: The shower curtain!!



I bought a white shower curtain and puff paints.  It took me about 4 days total.  I initially just did the quote itself, but I got the scale wrong, so I have to improvise and add more pretties around the edge.  Then DH noticed smudges around the outside, so I doodled on the outside of the quote, and added the rainbows at the top.   Also, I sneaked some Harry Potter paraphernalia.  Here are some closeups:



Only other thing I want to do is that awesome felted rock mat!!

C&C welcome!!

That looks so time consuming! It rocks! And it makes my shower curtain sad. I think you've inspired me to cheer it up. Wink

Awesome!  I see I'm not the only one inspired by Mr. Emerson.  There's another entry with a quote on it also, lol.
