Under the ocean kids bathroom

If your kids are like mine, they associate with all of the kids movies and characters that are popular.  They want “character” theme bedrooms, parties, etc.  I accommodated my daughters love of mermaids and swimming with an “Under the Ocean” theme bathroom.

I started with a reef wall decal that I found online.

I bought additional wall decals and paint that has sand in it to create the bottom of the ocean.

I couldn’t find any mermaid wall decals, so I made my own.  I took a mermaid book and had color copies made at Office Max.  I then cut them out and used a spray adhesive to attach them to the walls.

Of course the décor needed nets filled with starfish and shells, and glass bouys hanging from the ceiling.  I found the styrofoam chain during Halloween.  It was from a shackle and I bought it on clearance, then made an anchor to match.  I used a Styrofoam disc, drew & cut the anchor.  Bought 4 colors of paint that matched with the chain & sponge painted the colors onto the Styrofoam.  The anchor looks old & rusty.

I decided that the bathroom needed jelly fish hanging from the ceiling, so I bought plastic bowls & glued iridescent tissue & basket filler inside.  I hung them with clear thread & paper clips from the vent.  Too cute!

Happy decorating…
