There are rooms at Sagebrush Ridge that are still living in builder beige. Its sad really. We have been here for almost five years. One would think I could have managed to paint all of the walls. A life lived does not always mean painted walls. Go figure. Honestly though, its beginning to bother me. Not because of the color, but because they did such a horrendous job! The paint is so thin in places, the moment you touch it with a sponge it wipes off the wall. Yikes! Not good for Spring cleaning motivation. What it has inspired is a bunch of room redos. The entry way, mudroom hallway and half bath are in progress. I need a little carpentry work done before it can be completed (which means a honey do project for hubby, and he has an amazing way of letting those sit far too long), so I have moved to the girls' Jack and Jill bathroom. It opens to both of their rooms, so it needs to be fairly neutral. Here's the inspiration so far.

I love the subtle beachy/coastal nod. Relaxed, casual, easy to clean...

There is a little alcove behind the door leading to Miss H's bedroom that is screaming for shelving. Goodness knows two teenaged girls need all of the storage they can get and Mom needs it to be pretty and easy to organize. I like the look of the above photo, but we will need to figure out a storage solution for all of their various jewelry to be incorporated in here too. Tossing it all into a box has NOT been a good solution.

I like the simple storage solutions in the above bathroom, not to mention the boarded wall treatment. The over sized crockery would be perfect for hair styling tools or extra towels, and the miscellaneous pumps make pretty containers for all of their various lotions and potions. This image reminds me so much of our first home when the girls were little. We had a claw foot tub upstairs, pine tongue and groove walls, and steep slanted ceilings that left little over head room. The low light and narrow mirror were solutions we had to utilize. We didn't have a choice. Here its just cute.

I'm thinking custom storage on the shelves like the above, but done with plastic bins for the Dollar Tree. How fun would that be mixed with crockery, clear glass canisters and various pump containers?

Add a few simple flowers...
And presto! A bathroom fit for two beauty queens.
