New House: Bathrooms.

I'm not going to lie... my bathrooms are pretty boring. At the last house, I never decorated our bathrooms because they were so small (well, actually our master bathroom was bigger than our new master, but whatev), and since I've been all dreamy about home decor lately, the job of decorating/redoing the bathrooms seems so big I'm sure it will happen anytime soon. Also, these pics are taken on my phone because my lens on my camera was just NOT cutting it. I need a wide angle lens in a baaaad way. On with the show...

In our new house we have two bathrooms. Ideally I had wanted to have atleast 2.5 baths in our house. It's just nice to have a bathroom for guests that you don't have to worry about it having evidence that you have young boys present in your home :) BUT... the rest of the house kind of outweighed the fact that I was only getting 2 bathrooms... gotta give and take. The master bath is even more plain than the boys bathroom, and our towels don't match at all. But it has a stand alone shower, which I love. The color is a beachy light green/blue color. It's really hard to describe, and these pictures don't really even look like what it looks like in person.

This is the view from our bedroom. You can't tell in this picture, but the red rug was sprayed with bleach spray by Brayden about a year ago, and now it looks polka dotted from the spray. When I figure out what color scheme I'm going with on accent pieces (window treatment, towels, etc), I plan on replacing the rug. For now, it works.
our sinks. Our master bath cabinets have been restained from the original builders grade honey oak. I love the dark stain! FYI: no idea why those flowers are there, or why I keep them there. They ended up there during our unpacking process, and just have stayed. They really don't go with the decor at all- ha!
I also love the light fixture
Here's the potty area. I am hoping I can find some sort of narrow storage cabinet to put against the wall opposite the potty. I hesitate putting anything up on the walls on this area until I figure out what I am going to do. The space is actually a lot bigger than it seems in this picture, which looks really bare right now.
our jacuzzi tub. Can you believe we've been here almost 4 months and I've only taken 1 bath in it?! I'm just not a big bath girl I guess. I plan on putting up a stacked frame, similar to the chevron frame I made, on this wall. On the opposite wall is a towel rack, and I'm thinking about putting some type of ornamental metal on it. Not sure yet for that one.

The boys bathroom is a lot bigger than our last house.
This is the view from the hallway. The colors/decor is all from the last house. The shower curtain, believe it or not, is from Walmart. The little step stool was a gift given to Brayden by one of my best friends, Mary Virginia.
the sink area. Notice the towel rack...
very pottery barnish, don't you think? I love it!
Just another angle. I have a scripture verse I printed off from a printable on pinterest, and then one of my favorite pictures of the boys together, that was taken about a year ago
a close up of the picture and the scripture. Here's the link to the printable if you're interested. 
I have really big dreams for the boys/guest bathroom. Thought I'd share a few of them with you, since we're talking about bathrooms anyways :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this sign. I'm thinking I may make a smaller version of it for the bathroom, to go over the hand towel hanging on the wall.

My plan is to paint the bathroom a lighter gray color, and then stencil the wall that the door is on with this design(in white, not lime green, just to clarify)

We're also going to frame out the mirror like this. 

I'm on the lookout for something like this to go over the potty. So far, no luck, unless I want to spend over $100 (which I don't). When I do find it, I want to paint it kelly green, and distress it. And the shower curtain will be navy. So the color scheme will be light gray, kelly green, navy and white :)

And that's that. Our bathrooms. I'm linking up with Kelly for Show Us Your Life :)
To see the other spaces in my house, here's a run down of what I've shown so far:
