Guest Bathroom Tweaks

I just realized I never showed you the sweet bath mat I got for my birthday. If you are as obsessed with zigzags and stripes as I am you’re sure to love it!

When we moved in to our house Daniel wanted to hang a chalkboard behind the toilet for people to write on. I told him it was a terrible idea. A chalkboard in the bathroom would be too much like in college when my roommates and I kept a dry erase board and a stopwatch in the bathroom so we could compete for the longest peeing time. (Sorry, too much information?)

When I found this cute vintage slate chalkboard I decided Daniel’s idea was brilliant instead of terrible. Now I just need to come up with the perfect phrase to write on it to get the chalk rolling. Any suggestions?

    I actually like the chalkboard idea, but it looks like it fits in the bathroom, not just some random poster you can buy and stick on the wall like you would in college XD Hmm as for ideas … “I don’t want to smell your poo” ? LOL, as a friendly reminder to light a match or spray something HAHAH XD

    What about random facts about urine, such as … “did you know asparagus makes your pee smell funny?” or things like how you’ll find corn in your poop (put in a better way), etc.

    men @ first seem to have awful ideas and then…well, you start to warm up to them! I like your husbands idea. and i like “i’m watching you” the best!

    I’d say stick with the zombie one! lol
    But for the sake of suggestion how about “If’s it’s yellow let it mellow. If it’s brown flush it down.”
    Love the bath mat! ;)

    I found your stationery a few days ago via Etsy and then wandered over here to your blog. I was really enjoying it and read this post – I nearly died laughing. I was so inspired, that I wrote my own (we’re moving soon and I’m daydreaming). Thank you for the lovely stationery AND potty humor!

    I know this is random since this post is over a year old, but I had to comment. The first thing I came up with was “Welcome to Our Humble Commode”, a play on “Welcome to Our Humble Abode”. I’m enjoying scrolling through some of your older posts. Love your blog.

      I’m afraid I can’t tell you Misty! I’ve long since repainted it. :) Sorry about that!

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
