Crafty Weekend - Part One

I was pretty busy last weekend doing some fun projects so I thought I'd share. I have been wanting to decorate the kids' bathroom since we moved in. It's nice and roomy with two sinks. I love that they have their own bathroom but it's pretty plain. With a girl and two boys, though, I wanted it to be gender neutral and able to grow with them. You can check out my pinterest board here to see what I am thinking.

First up, this bathroom needed some art! I've had this pinned for such a long time. So for my first project, I bought some blank canvasses and paint at Michael's. I wanted the whale and water spout to look organic so I just freehand drew it on the canvas and then painted it. The top canvas is Pale Blue, the middle is Turquoise and the bottom is Navy. I was thrilled with how they turned out! It's just one little to-do checked off my list but I love it and can't wait to see how the rest of it comes together. By the way, the bathroom (below) isn't really that yellow. It's more of a very light beige. I just can't take a great picture even with my hubby's awesome camera. Maybe that should be the next class I take!

For the rest of the art, I'm planning on ordering a few prints from a favorite illustrator and framing them in white or navy blue frames. I'll post an "after" when it's done!
