Purple Tween Bliss in 36 Hours

There are times when I question my sanity. This wasn't a case of procrastination, rather just not getting around to the project. Little Miss Whimsy had her 11th birthday party last night (Friday the 7th). It was a sleepover. On Wednesday I had some drywall repaired in my home. Before the repairman left I had scheduled him to come back in the morning and paint my bonus room and Little Miss Whimsy's bathroom. Something she has wanted for a very long time and something that she desperately wanted before her friends arrived for the party at 4PM Friday. 36 hours? I can get that done! Yikes! No time for custom shower panels I decided to hit Target and see what I could come up with. Lucky for me I hit pay dirt. With my Benjamin Moore fan Deck in hand and the paint color picked out (French Lilac) I went to work.

My First stop......picking up some white towels at Marshall's and taking them to a monogramming kiosk in the mall that I knew would monogram while I waited. Task 1 done! Monogrammed towels.

This is the bath before. Pretty bland in SW Ivoire paint.

This shower tile is still on my list to change out. Not really my style and certainly not great for a girls bath. The plan is to put white subway tile in. This project is still on the list!

French Lilac. I found the crystal looking lamp at Target on clearance no less. The only shade they had was this white one. I will be taking a trip to JoAnn's to buy some purple beads to glue along the bottom of the shade. I could only get some much done in what turned out to be 12 hours of time! Most of which was from 10PM until 7Am!

I found some purple iridescent window panels at Target I picked up two of them along with the sheer white polka dot panels. Of course my sewing machine decided to break Friday morning so I hand sewed the purple panels to the back of the sheer dot ones. The picture on the wall is right up Little Miss Whimsy's ally! I found it at AC Moore. Two dogs in spa robes with face masks and cucumbers on their eyes. I picked up the frame there as well. What 11 year old wouldn't love dogs having a spa day?

I switched out the knobs to these purple crystal ones I found at Target!

Of course what girls bath is complete without a purple Flokati rug? I still have some tweaking to do. The lamp shade. Some beaded tassel tie backs for the panels on the shower. I want to add some shelves over the toilet for her jams and gels. Overall it is 99% complete. Enough for her to show it off to her friends who loved it. She loves it too and that is all that matters to this mom! Have a great week and for more wonderful Metamorphosis projects visit Susan At Betweennapsontheporch
