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!
