I had hands down the WORST KIDS BATHROOM EVER. Mickey fricken mouse everywhere. I am NOT a Disney fan so this was very discouraging. I was once again faced with a TON of patching due to stupid trim that was EVERYWHERE. Yuck yuck yuck. Never mind the MM tile. Ew. I have someone coming in to fix that very soon, thank goodness!

Anyhow, I wanted something cool for the kids. I have two boys 14, and 11, and a 6 year old girl. It needed to bridge a big gap. I got inspired to paint a kraken coming out of the shower. That's where it all began. And then I found other cool things and went from there. You have to check out the switch plate I found on etsy, the cool shark head and towel hooks from Urban Barn. I had a lot of fun with this room and am sooo pleased with the transformation. After I took the pics, my husband came in and put in a new toilet and sink. Should have waited until those were in to do the afters, but...meh - you get the point!

and the dreaded *BEFORE*!! (I'm so ashamed! But trust me...that is not my handiwork!)

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

If you hadn't told, I'd never have guessed that this was a kid's bathroom! Awesome.

I love this theme! Not only are those kraken arms fabulous, but I'm glad people actually do this kind of art in their bathrooms. (It makes my dreams of doing something similar a little less outlandish Wink )

Whatever happened to the ongoing hoopla swaps?

Thanks so much guys! It is kinda odd
For a kids bathroom, but it kinda goes with the territory as I'm a little odd!! Lol

I really appreciate the comments. You guys are the best!
