A Neutral Bathroom

Have you ever left for a short vacation and returned home to find things just aren't in order? Like maybe the young adults you left behind to watch your house may have gotten into some trouble while you were gone?

I used to own a neutral bathroom, white walls and oak wood cabinets. Think of my surprise to return home to have the glow of the now turquoise room catch my eye as I walked by. The turtles and shark were all blocked in just awaiting some final details.

Hubbie took the bait and finished it up. When your children grow up in a house with artists they think this is a natural part of all families.

Doesn't everyone have man eating sharks painted on their bathroom walls?

(Just for clarification, it was Burbank Baby who did this! The photo of Money Bags who has now been reduced to Material Girl is just to show the detail on the background walls.)

That is so cool!...and a bit frightening. It might remind me of my fears as a youngster to bath or sit on the toilet after watching the movie "Jaws". I know, I was a nut job:)

What a fun bathroom! Hey, I mistakingly thought the deadline for the Red project art was nov 15th I think it is because the Haute handbags deadline was the 15th and I just found out it was the 1st. I apologize girl. I just get myself involved in too much!

OMG, I would love this bathroom now!!! You don't have to be little to love a good shark with personality. Your husband is so talented, he paints murals too!
