Bathroom Makeover

We put up new wallpaper in out basement's bathroom on Sunday, and on Monday my sister and I redecorated it. I decided that an ocean theme would be nice. :) So we made a couple of wall hangings using paper ribbon and seashells that I collected on the beach when I went to Florida in '98. :D

Being fond of jigsaw puzzles, we have covered a couple of walls in our basement with puzzles that we have completed and glued. :P One of them was an ocean view with a lighthouse on it that matched the colors in the bathroom well, so I 'jazzed' it up with some paper ribbon and hung it on the wall. The other thing in the photo (I have no clue what to call it :P A fan? A broom? LOL) is something that Mom thought looked nice in there.

Lastly, I put some more of my Florida shells in a basket to set in there, and hung a framed picture of a stream (though it's not the ocean, it's still water. :P Mom chose it.) with a Bible verse on it that we took from an old calendar. :)

It looks so nice! It's a shame that it's the boys' bathroom! :P Mom said that we could decorate ours now, if we want I guess we'll be working on that soon! :)
