sea monster bathroom

Joe's bathroom was in desperate need of a change. And well, I just needed a distraction. (The perfect combination!) He's been really into cars, trucks, and boats lately...pretty much anything that moves. I was thinking maybe a boat or pirate themed bathroom, so I started searching for shower curtains first. I came across an adorable whale shower curtain on Society6, and it instantly became the inspiration for Joe's new sea monster bathroom!

We didn't have much money to spend on this room, so it's more of a bathroom refresh than a full-on makeover. Someday I hope to get a new vanity and re-do the tile, but for now it works. Actually, the gray vanity pops so much better against the new paint color. 

*Note, it was incredibly difficult to get an accurate picture of the wall color without any natural light. I promise, it really is a pretty mustard in person :)

I found a cute and easy idea for a towel hook on another blog I follow, Tag & Tibby. I was instantly obsessed, and thought it was a subtle tie-in to the theme. We decided to a use a piece of pallet wood we already had, and I found the boat cleats at Walmart for only $1.99! Seriously, the simplest (and cheapest) DIY project ever.

The towel holder ring is from Etsy and made out of rope.

I was so excited to be able to find a spot for our South Haven sign. South Haven is a very special place for James and me. We fell in love there, got engaged there and even married there. I bought this wooden sign for him for our 3 or 4? year "dating-versary" and we used it as a decoration at our wedding. It means so much to have it hung in our home.
