Don't get all crazy on me, deal???

So I might have mentioned something about my kiddos' bathroom a while back and then may or may not have totally chickened out on showing y'all pictures.
Yep. Chicken.

But then I decided to put on my big girl panties and suck it up. I mean, hey, what's the worst thing that can happen? Besides you all being subjected to my dismal photography skills *AGAIN*.

But this is my super-duper budget make over for the bathroom, for a grand total of 50 buckaroos...for *all* of it.

Shower curtain: $5 at walmart (I know, it's spendy)
Whale decal: Free ninety-nine 'cause I won it, yay me
White towels: $3 a piece (also walmart, you would think since I have a discount here I would just get some nice ones, but no)
Polka Dot handtowels: $4/each from "the Barn"
Blue-Green Frame: $3.97 from the barn as well, clearance bin, baby!
The monogram inside: This might suprise you, but I drew it. Oh it didn't surprise you? I will hope that is a complement and not...the other thing.
Rug: $10 from Home Goods
Silver Box: $12 from PB, it was my splurge (c:
Polka dot bowl: Target dollar ailse, but actually cost me $2.50...what a rip off! (c:
Flowers: One bunch from the Dollar Tree. A whole dollar!






You made it all the way to the end of this post?!? Congrats, you are crazy...but hey, you're in good company (c:

I'm kinda in love with the polka dots.

And once again, sorry about the pictures...and the no natural light in that bathroom...hey, waddaya want??? It's a rental.

Hello Aubrey! I think the bathroom looks very cool, and pretty. I love it when people have the skills to make such an adorable space with so little $$$. In my dictionary, this is called good taste. I am in love with polka dots as well.
ps.: when I'm going to see your pretty face/logo following my blog?

Cute, and you did it for $50. I would never be able to do it. The shower curtain in my daughter's bathroom costs $30.

If you go to a free editing program like picassa you can adjust the exposure on the photos and make them lighter.
