Boys’ Bathroom Transformation

I’m excited to share my boys’ bathroom transformation that didn’t involve a lot of money – just a lot of paint!

Bathroom Transformation

This past month, I transformed my boys’ bathroom for Leviton’s Renu Challenge. (Leviton’s) Renu offers light switches and outlets in 20 beautiful colors.  There were 20 designers, and we were all asked to be inspired by a color.  I chose to be inspired by the Rich Navy.

I really hadn’t thought about how much better our light switches (and outlets) could look until we replaced them with the renu colored version.

I created a design board once I had selected the Rich Navy color:


I used Valspar’s Notre Dame for the walls.

I also replaced the mirror above the vanity (with an old dresser mirror), painted the faucets, replaced the towel racks, painted the cabinets, and replaced the cabinet hardware.

And I painted one accent wall with tone on tone stripes.  I painted the walls in Valspar’s Notre Dame and the lighter stripes in Valspar’s Comet Dust.

The window seat was also painted to match the cabinets, pillows were added and the light fixture replaced.

Although there were some cosmetic changes (the outlets, light switches, light fixtures, and cabinet hardware), most everything else was fixed up with paint.  If you hang out with me long enough, you’ll find the paint is my solution to almost everything! I feel like I successfully rescued the boys’ bathroom from the ’90s and brought them a playful bathroom that’s perfect for my little guys. I’ll share more about the specifics of this bathroom (how I painted the cabinets, the striped wall, where I bought the light fixture, etc) very soon! Want some Renu products of your own?

  1. Did you spray paint your faucets. They look the same style as the brass ones. Just wondering and hoping you did cuz I would love to get rid of my brass. You do great work.

    1. Thanks, Kimberley! Yes, I painted the faucets. They have held up fairly well, but I would like to replace them sometime in the next year. They do require some touching up, but painting them was a great temporary fix!

  2. I would really like to start a blog and make some money off affiliate links.
    Could you tell me how to get started.
    God bless and talk soon.

    We are currently doing a major remodel.

    1. There are a ton of resources online and books to read on blogging! I also suggest checking out a blog conference since they typically are incredible helpful. You can always email me. Best of luck to you!
