Ten Great Ways to Update a Bathroom

My To Do list is never ending, and one of the projects coming up is updating my kids’ bathroom.  I’ve got ten things in mind that I hope will give it new life.  Here’s my plan:

1. New paint color. Specifically Sea Salt by Martha Stewart (Behr).  I’ve used it in one room already and for my patio ceiling. It’s subtle but plenty bright enough.


2. New towels.

6.  DIY project: framing the builders mirror.  House of Smiths is full of inspiration with great tutorials for projects like this framed bathroom mirror.   I *think* I’ll do ours in black.

7.  New wall art.
