Bathroom Reveal

Next up on the house tour is the bathroom. Here’s where we started:


This is the only “before” of the bathroom I took. If you look into the kitchen you can see the linoleum that was original to the RV. We have covered all that with peel and stick wood look vinyl. I chose a warmer wood look, versus all the cooler gray options these days. I wanted something a little more traditional. I know this is an RV, but I wanted an updated cottage feel. You know, an old house that has been modernized a bit.


Since our bathroom also acts as our hallway I decided to paint it all white. Walls, trim, doors, cabinets. Everything went white. We even bought an all white shower curtain, though it does have a waffle weave pattern on it to lend some texture.


You can see the floors in this shot. We decided to leave all the carpet, I know, I know, but it is in pretty good shape and really does keep our feet warmer. There was only a little bit of linoleum right in front of the sink and shower to cover.


We replaced the faucet. We also replaced the bath faucet and shower head but I’ll show you that when I show you how we organize our one bathroom for six people.


R.C. came up with a way to hang a shower curtain. Because our bath is also our hall between the bedroom and living spaces, it is beneficial to still be able to move through it, even when someone is in the shower. We cut the shower curtain into two pieces and the only part of it that opens is directly in front of the shower door.


This extra privacy, yet still bathroom availability, has been super nice.


The other side. We use Peshtemal towels which I am going to devote a whole post to soon. We bought these when we moved into Tiny and couldn’t be happier with the switch from terry cloth. The door on the right is a closet that holds most of the kids’ clothes. The door on the left is the toilet closet.


I didn’t go all white in here, though. I painted the lower half of the room the same dark gray as the bedroom and then coated it with poly. It makes cleaning up my four boys’ “splashes” much easier. =/ The upper walls are white and I painted the small cabinet with a light pink chalk paint I bought at Walmart.


The mirror was already here and I decided to work with it because it really does help this tiny room feel larger. Plus, it has come in handy when someone else is using the mirror above the sink.


I decided to “wallpaper” this room with prints I found at Hobby Lobby. They all came in a package together and only cost $14.99 plus I used my 40% off coupon so it was a little under $9. Big impact for little money.



I simply hung them up with some different washi tapes I had around. Basically gold, silver, black and white stripes, and black and white polka dots. I like the extra umph the washi tape gives the walls.


I bought an office organizer thing from Target (it’s basically sturdy cardboard) and R.C. screwed it to the wall. We keep comic books and sudoku puzzles in it, along with air freshener and a pencil. One little cubby is the perfect size for a cell phone so there is much less chance of phones being dropped in the toilet. You know you’ve almost done that before. (or HAVE done that before) =)


We replaced the toilet and put in new flooring.  Despite it’s tiny size, it isn’t a bad room to spend time in. Everything feels so much fresher and lighter now. And though our bedroom is dark gray and our bathroom is white, they compliment each other really well.

What is your favorite part of our bathroom? Me, I’m loving the art prints covering the toilet closet, but the light pink cabinet is a close second.

Here’s my review of our Turkish towels.

Here’s our bedroom reveal.

      I found these prints on the end cap of one of the aisles. They were near the area that has the posters and smaller art prints that are near the framing area. Hope that helps!

    My favorite part was the coating the bottom half of the wall with poly! For boys splashing! Genius!!! That would help for boys and adults lol

    The pink cabinet! So cute. But the shower curtain is an excellent privacy solution, and streamlines the space, so that’s my favorite too.

    I love it all! You did a great job to make the bathroom your own. I love what you’ve done with the ‘potty room’. Such an inspiration for our new-to-us RV potty room! We had a very small travel trailer for many years and I made it our own with decor that reflected the two of us. I used some of my framed photography from places we (and the trailer) had gone together. I’m in the process of adding it to the bigger ‘new’ trailer and your potty room has inspired me to follow my original thought for making that room special. Love the magazine and room spray ‘rack’. The cabinet above our potty isn’t usable – it houses the fuse box and other electronics stuff for the trailer. So, I’m looking for something decorative to fit my small space – something that can hold extra TP and other assorted ‘fun’ things in that little room. Thanks again for the inspiration!

      I’m glad you were inspired and would love to see pictures when you’re done!
