Other than things like towels and tooth brush holders, I have now purchased everything for the boys bathroom!
I did a little poll on Instagram to help decide between a towel bar or hooks for the boys. And, hooks were the overwhelming winner! I was already leaning in this direction for a couple of reasons. First, I don’t find many towel bars to really be long enough to adequately dry two towels that are used daily. Second, I think my boys might actually use hooks. Third, and most importantly, the space in here is tight. Sister has a similar set up in our bathroom at Some Beach and I am always terrified that one of us is going to throw open the shower door and crash it into the towel bar and shatter it. I will do two of these double hooks – one for each kid. I chose these in particular because of their low profile. I think this will help with the shower door situation AND I think these kids are going to be tall so I don’t need hooks jutting out from the wall that they might crack their heads on. (To that end, John is already 2″ taller than me and Whit is on his way!)
I almost went with a medicine cabinet mirror but changed my mind at the last minute. After sharing a single sink and mirror with the boys the last four weeks, I have determined that they are even messier than I originally thought. I have no idea how they spray water all over a 3′ radius just by brushing their teeth. Mother, of course, said I should TEACH them not to. And I WILL to do that (added to the list…). But, I had visions of a medicine cabinet mirror dangling off the wall and everything inside and out covered in water drops and tooth paste globs. I figure a flat mirror with small frame will be the most boy-proof at this phase in life.
I am reusing the existing light in their bathroom. I love it and chose all of the other finishes in chrome to match.
I am reusing the existing toilet paper roller and hand towel ring as well.
