Before and after bathroom: Orange octopus-style #Decor & Decorating#bathrooms#before and after#orange#tentacles#wall decals May 2 2013 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin Before and after. Ever since I talked about how octopodes make great towel holders, I've been wanting to see more tentacles in your bathrooms. Well, Homie Sara came through by uploading photos of her awesome octopus-themed bathroom makeover to our Flickr pool. Who hasn't seen or lived with a bathroom that looks just like your typical rental — beige walls, faux-wood vanities, standard drawer pulls? With a coat of paint, Sara took this from bland and dreary, to bold and tentacle-y. Sara sanded and painted the cabinets, and all the walls, white. Then she added orange accouterments like the pulls and the jars. Even her cotton swabs (ugh, I want those) and hand soap are orange! But the best part, of course, is the giant orange octopus vinyl decal. (Psst: Amazon has a butt-load of different octopus vinyl wall decals.) She then finished off the look with a set of bright beach-y art pieces and adorable orange lanterns behind the toilet. Combining my favorite color orange and tentacles… way to design my favorite bathroom ever, Sara! Wanna share YOUR space?

A good way to add some colour without scaring the landlord. Our bathroom is super boring at the moment and is painted a cold colour. I want to paint it yellow and hang up my Van Gogh sunflowers print to cheer it up. 1 agrees Reply Toooooootally this! Excellent point. Reply this is amazing!!!!
