Dr. Seuss Bathroom

My 18 month old has a new fun Dr. Seuss One Fish Two Fish bathroom! And he LOVES IT! He loves showing off the fish and pointing to them!

I got the idea from Pottery Barn Kids. They recently had a Dr. Seuss One Fish Two Fish Bathroom, but I discovered it after it was no longer available from Pottery Barn Kids, and I did not want to pay Ebay prices, so I made my own version with some paint and a Target Shower curtain and Target Accessories. I am very happy with how it turned out and a lot less than what Pottery Barn Kids originally sold it for and less than I would spend on Ebay!!

The wall was already painted a shade of blue, so I used a projector to get the outlines of the fish and then free handed the rest of the mural. I used Behr paint samples from Home Depot in several Disney colors! The fun bright colors were perfect for this project! I replicated the waves from the inspiration Pottery Barn Kids shower curtain to create the accent wall.

One fish and blue fish!
Behind the door looks a little funny because there are no fish, but its behind the door and where we hang bath robes.
Red fish!

Red fish (and my favorite, I think he turned out the best!!!)
PBK had cute bath accessories that were bright primary colors with descriptions on them. I found these great bath accessories at Target and stenciled then with Martha Stewart's new stencils to replicate PBK's accessories.

Three fish!
Throw in a Dr. Seuss hat and you have a complete bathroom perfect for any little man!

The shower curtain is also from Target.
Two fish!
I am so proud of my finished bathroom. This is the first time I have done any major painting like this and I am very happy with how it turned out! And its even better that my Little Man loves it too!

  3. You did a fabulous job. I didn't want to pay pottery barn prices either. The accents you found work great and the mural really makes the room. I'd love if you linked this to my Dr. Seuss blog collection. I'd love to feature this on my site too. - Victoria http://www.obseussed.com/p/books.html

  10. I absolutely love this! I was wondering what type of projector you have? I have been wanting to purchase one, but I have no idea what I am looking for as far as using it for craft purposes.
