Simple Mini Bathroom Makeover

Richard and I moved into this house in March 2009. I was pregnant with Lydia, so we sold our 2-bedroom townhouse and purchased a 3-bedroom single-family home. As soon as we moved in, we changed out the flooring in half the house {replacing the carpet with laminate} and painted the walls. Over the years, we’ve done many upgrades: brand new kitchen, knock-down ceilings, new roof, updated bathroom for the kids, updates to our master bedroom, and patio-to-office conversion. One area we have never addressed is our master bathroom. Generally, it’s an absolute disaster – super disorganized, make-up stains on the counter, splatters on the mirror. Horrible. I didn’t want to have to invest any real money to totally transform it, but with a few simple touches, I was able to give it a simple mini bathroom makeover. I even included my new favorite skincare product, Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream.

I began by making a few printables for the bathroom. The first is some new wall art. We’ve had this watercolor orchid print in a tacky silver frame hanging up in our bedroom since our last place. It looks like the kind of artwork your grandmother may have hanging in her house. No thanks. I wanted a simple phrase with a basic font, so I designed this Best Seat in the House printable.

I also purchased clear sticker paper to make Bathroom Labels for glass containers that hold cotton swabs, cotton balls, and hand soap. The sticker paper fits in your printer and works perfectly when you print using the “glossy photo” setting. Just be sure to let the ink dry before touching it.

I reused an old picture frame I found in the back of my closet and hung it over the toilet. Because…where else would I hang this? My daughter laughed when she first read it. Cute, right?

For the labeled containers, I purchased a few glass jars with chrome lids. I chose chrome because the faucets in my bathroom are chrome. If you’re doing a mini makeover, stick with the color palette that is already there.

Now I was ready to organize the bathroom. Here’s how all the clear sticker printables look together. I added the flowers to give that pop of color to a very neutral color palette. I love how the yellow and green contrasts the light background.

Next, I took a tray that I was using to store papers in my office and made it a bathroom tray to store perfumes, colognes, shaving cream, a small mirror, two of my labeled jars, and Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream.

I found a clear lavender-scented hand soap so that you can see straight through the soap dispenser. That adds to the clean appearance of the bathroom. The bottle for the flowers is actually an old soap dispenser with a broken dispenser portion. I love being able to repurpose things!

Cetaphil® Moisturizing Cream is clinically-proven to provide lasting moisture to replenish sensitive, dry skin – perfect in Florida where we have the potential for sunburns and dry skin year round! The non-greasy formula is excellent for hands, feet, elbows, knees, and any other areas that require intensive moisturization. Cetaphil® is fragrance-free, which is perfect sensitive skin.

Head to Target to find the full line of Cetaphil® products, including the Moisturizing Cream, available in a 16-ounce container. The products can be found down the skincare products aisle or at an endcap display nearby. Target always has some of the trendiest home decor, so feel free to pick up a few fun items for your mini bathroom makeover! *Visit the Social Hub for more Cetaphil® inspiration!
