LEGO bathroom: Before & After

About 6 years ago, I redecorated my boys' bathroom with cute little frogs. The theme was "Ribbit, Ribbit." I painted it on the walls, I had little froggy toys, and I took that bathroom with us wherever we moved! They loved it! Well, six years later, my boys are now 7 and 10 and, sadly, outgrowing cute little frogs. So, this time around, I let them pick the theme and what do 7 & 10 yr. old boys like? LEGOS!! So, here comes a LEGO bathroom - with a positive attitude. {Check the end of this post to see what I mean.}

Like any good before and after post, here is the BEFORE photo of the froggy bathroom {Sniff Sniff}:


Lots of hot glue, mod podge and 100 LEGOS later - the AFTER shot: 

  {I almost sold these shelves below at my garage sale!! Then I noticed they'd match the bathroom perfectly -- woohoo!} Now the boys have a place to display all the lego creations they make!

I also love that my son made the toothbrush holder. :o)

The yellow bath decor & rug was from Target and the little monster cups (which I thought added a little whimsy to the Lego theme) were also a cool Target $1 spot find!

The hardest {but also favorite} part of the bathroom is the lego framed mirror. :o) The Legos were hot glued together then carefully glued & hammered around the mirror. I won't tell you how many I times I dropped the Legos and had to put them back together. ;o) Let's just be happy they stayed on the wall! {3 days and counting!} Can I get a woot woot?? :o)

 I'm a girl on a budget so, this whole bathroom cost me around $40 to redo! I bought the set on sale at Target, I decoupaged them with Lego prints I printed out, I already had the towels, shelves and I used the boys' duplo legos they no longer played with for the mirror frame! 

But my MOST favorite part is this: In my house I am trying to use how I decorate to not only display style, but our character and how we are so blessed by God. So, taking residence in the boys bathroom will be this framed quote, not religious, but still full of a positive ATTITUDE and reminder of how God wants us to be: 


I have always loved this quote, and was so excited to find it in a FREE printable! {That matched a primary colored LEGO bathroom no less!) Download your own attitude quote here:
