Welcome!

My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."

Kids' Bathroom REVEAL !!


It`s done!! It`s done !! 
It has to be done because there isn`t any more room for anything else!!
I`ve painted, decoupaged and sewn everything I can and now it`s time to step back and enjoy the finished space!

Here is the kids` bathroom early last fall when I grew tired of the orange accents :






Let the makeover begin!!

Back in October I began by Stencilling the largest wall in the room.  
This was a big and frustrating job, but I LOVE how it turned out!!



Shortly after that, I exchanged the  silver, builder-grade cabinet knobs for these funky polka-dot ones.  


Hubby took out the boring "boob-light" fixture and replaced it with this  vintage light which I paid $2.50 for at the Habitat for Humanity resale store.  



I made this ``Bathroom Pixie`` to keep watch over the kids and to make sure they were flossing and brushing carefully!



I filled the wall space above our Pixie with this 3D paper star art.


I made this Paper Mosaic Art as a tutorial for a guest post at Pocket Full of Pink. It went perfectly into this bathroom space.  


To fill the space above the toilet I created these Bathroom Reminder Signs to make sure the kids started each day with cleanliness and happiness.


To jazz up the plain white shower curtain, I added some pennants.



Nope.  I couldn't leave the step stool alone either.  Here is how I added the text and swirl.


To finish up, I re-hung these adorable pictures of my three kids as babies enjoying the tub. 


"You are my Sunshine" greets the kids every morning, too.  I grabbed this at a discount decor store.


Where do the kids put their "bathroom reading?"  In a freshly re-painted magazine rack hung on the wall near the throne.  


And here it is.   Complete.  

RED and AQUA all over.  


Looking at the after pictures I see I may have gone a little overboard.  Hmmm...


But the kids disagree.  They think it is perfect.  

And it's them I did it for, right?

  27. It looks so cute! I agree with the kids when they said it’s perfect. It doesn’t matter if you went overboard or whatnot, what’s important is they loved it, and it makes all your efforts worth it. Congrats on nailing it, and thanks for sharing!
