My Little Monkeys New Bathroom

Whew! It is finally finished and I can post pictures.  Now that the blood is back in my arm and hand from holding up the paint brush over my head, lol!  But it was worth it because the kids are loving it.  Is it cheesy? Yes.  Is it over the top?  Of course!  But is it something special I could do for my kids in our new home?  Absolutely!

The first thing I had to do was make a few repairs in the bathroom. Nothing major, just some new caulking around the sink and tub and patch a few nail holes and touch up the base paint.

And here is what the
bathroom looked
like before.
It wasn’t a bad bathroom by any means, just a plain simple little room that we thought needed our own special, crazy touch! lol

I liked the cute little “family” decal that was already above the door and decided to leave it and work around it!

And here are my tools.
Most of the mural I did free-hand.  The top two monkeys were done using an overhead projector and images I found using a google search. The rest I based off of those and did myself to make them all match. All painting was done with some brushes I found in our craft supplies, $.97 arcrylic paints found at Wal-Mart, and a couple of Sharpie markers!  I know, probably not the right tools for the job, but they worked and it didn’t cost me a whole lot at all!

And now the moment so many have been asking about! Pictures of the finished project!!!  Thank you all for your encouragement and interest in my little project!!


(All three of my kids on the wall!  Of course lil girl monkey had to have a bow in her hair.  After I got these on the way she also decided that we had to have a mommy and daddy monkey in there too, so that changed my plans a little and added a little extra time to the project but it was worth it!)


(The eyes glared funny here, I’m sorry for that in the picture)

Hope you enjoy it as much as we are!  And now that it is finished I guess it is one to more pressing matters.  Like doing the laundry and dishes! lol
