For my son's room and bath I ended up coloring pictures for artwork. Turned out really really cute - and very cheap!

I want to live in that bathroom - so bright, fun, and uncluttered! Your little one's bedroom is equally impressive - what a terrific color scheme, and so much fun!

What a cool idea! I'm quite impressed at how uncluttered it all is!

Aw, thanks! I never thought of my house as uncluttered but I guess it is. I posted some photos I had on FB on the other thread linked here.

Very nice!! I just painted our new playroom a shade of green that is very similar to your son's closet. So fun!

Can you tell me about the blue storage crates in your bathroom closet? Where are those from? I need linen closet storage and those look great.

Oh wow very, very nice! I really love the idea of colouring in pictures for artwork - though I don't think I could be as neat as you!

Walmart for I think $1? $2 at the most. They had a ton of stuff like that for back to school/college.

The other storage items in there came from that front cheap area of Target.
