Our house has a semi-open plan. We don't have one big room but there is a small hall that connects the living room and the kitchen. On the right in this hall there is half-bath (the one we remodeled on a super-low budget last year). It's very convenient for guests:
And yes, next to the door is our new command center that we still love and use it every single day. On the left we have a tiny coat closet:
I can't tell you how many times somebody tried to go in there instead of the bathroom! Just ask my best friend :)
The other day I saw this cute idea on Pinterest, and a light bulb lit in my head. Candice found those wooden figures in Michaels. You can imagine that I immediately sprinted there and spent good 40 minutes fruitlessly looking for the "boy" and the "girl". I guess, it wasn't their stellar item because they don't carry it any more.
My crafty soul felt dissatisfied... And then I had another "aha" moment when I saw a black foam sheet... For only 89c. I grabbed it and ran home...
I printed the outlines of the icons off of mister Google Image and traced and cut them with an exacto knife. I can't drag the explanation any further :) It really took me about 10 minutes tops. The best part is that the foam paper has a sticky side, so all I had to do was trace-cut-attach. They are easy to remove and not gonna bother the next family when we decide to sell this place. But for now I love them:
I do sacrifice some entertainment here watching my best friend trying to break into our closet every time but I think she and some other people will appreciate this new addition to the bathroom door:)
