15 Minute Kids' Bathroom Rescue

Nice and only 15 minutes!!! Can you believe it?  I hardly can.

Really, 15 minutes was all it took.  I even timed myself to be sure.
 Here is what my kids'/guest bathroom looked like 15 minutes ago.
There were lotions and potions from I don't even know when. 
There were random things that were supposed to go in other places.
 And bandaid wrappers that to me, obviously belong in the garbage...apparantly not to my kids though.  
So I tossed and purged and here is what I ended up with.
 Only the essentials!
I put all the hair stuff in the upper cupboard.
All the toothbrushes and toothpastes are in the drawer so there is order now.
 This is what it looks like under the sink. I have bulk TP, bath mat, cleaning stuff and my guest stuff organizer.  You can see how I did it in this post here.
 This is the lower drawer with extra TP and emergency items for guests.
 All things teeth in the upper drawer. I wrapped two rubber bands around a cup to make a toothbrush holder for 4 with a cup I already had.  I have lots of toothpastes because my kids have more fun brushing their teeth that way.  It's like shoes for me...I can't wear the same pair day after day...  Options are good! 
Here is the cabinet above the sink.  I gave it a good wipe down and put things away in a way that made sense for us.  Everything on the right side is for my daughter's hair care needs.  On the left, for my boys.  I went to the dollar store and bought a pack of 12 combs because with 3 boys and a husband...they always seem to be disappearing.  Hopefully these will last a while. ;o)

On the bottom shelf is a nail brush and our boo-boo box loaded with neosporin and bandaids... sans empty wrappers!

Just for kicks I slid wrapping paper down behind the shelves for a pop of color and fun.  If I decide to change it or it gets too wet I can easily take it out.

That's my kind of makeover!

What do you think?

Lots o' love,
