Peter got an idea last week to redo the kid's bathroom over the weekend. I love this man for many many reasons, but the way he makes the impossibly-sounding weird stuff sound so doable is kind of awesome. Like this idea for their bathroom. Even when he should have been relaxing on Father's day, Peter was in the bathroom working away on his idea, Emma working as his assistant. (He did take a break midday for a bike ride with some other dads.)
After a couple of new coats of Dutch Boy's "December Sky", the far wall got his interpretation of wallpaper... pages of a kid's manga book blown up and pasted on with wallpaper paste. Then a couple coats of flat-finish poly over the final wall for extra protection. The kids are in love with it. Emma wants to do it her room next. We'll see. This will be an experiment in durablilty, to see exactly how well this will hold up to her showers.
In the meantime, the search for the perfect shower curtain has begun. Hopefully in the not too distant future, this bathroom will get a new double vanity, floor, etc. But in the meantime, this is fun place to be right now.
I do love that Peter has this secret crafty side.
It makes me feel a little better when I'm downstairs making slipcovers.
