Welcome to the Poop Deck!

Ok, seriously...I've had that post title in my head for three and a half years!!! LOL...*sigh*...finally.

There just aren't enough pirate-themed rooms out there. Who says that you can only do a pirate theme in little kid's bedrooms??? Huh???

So after nearly 4 years in this house, I picked up some frames and laminated the kid's art work so that (hopefully) the moisture doesn't wreck them. Matted with scrapbook paper (because God knows I won't use it for scrapbooking lol) and decorated with stickers. Kylie did the treasure map, and Jacob did the Jolly Roger flag. The sign above the pictures was bought for 60% off after Halloween at Michael's and I love it because it announces a "booty contest" in my bathroom lol. I apologise for the poor pictures, I was trying to cut down on the reflections in the frames.

I went to Home Depot, looking for skinny shelves for my pirate duckies, and didn't find a stupid thing! I really despise that place. Not the point lol. I bought these little wooden trays from Dollarama and painted them black, and Scott figured out the placement. I still need to paint the screws black so they don't stand out so much, but I am onto other things. Get off my back already lol!

...oh, and I put this really stinky air freshener in the bathroom that smells like coconut and cherries. Now it smells like a tropical island. Maybe it should smell more like pirates? Ew, can you imagine???

That is seriosly one of the cutest bathrooms I have ever seen! You dont know how to knit or crochet? That shocks me! You are so crafty! I swear it is so easy though! (do not buy a book, they are a waste of money! Just look on Utube for videos!) If I can do it, you can for sure do it!

I love your pirate theme bathroom! You are the best mom ever! Now you just need a real parrot, some bouys and a fishing net too. Good thing it doesn't smell like pirates, though!

Thanks to you both :D .

Josie, I can cast on and knit or crochet a scarf...yeah, that's it. Oh, once I crocheted some baby hats for the hospital but they were way too big. I just couldn't follow a pattern, I can't figure out all the symbols...it's like reading Greek or something.

Liane..."you are the best mom ever!". Tell me something I don't know lol.

Awesome. Are there pirate hats to wear while doing "business." I like the food trays turned wall decoration.

Crafty crafty!

Halloween is the bestest time of the year to shop for decor. lol (and dressup) Last Halloween I picked up a pirate flag, more spider webs and bats for Sean's room. Your bathroom looks great!

You have been so busy since I have been gone to NYC kicking up my heels and partying my face off.
By the way I answered the question about the Piccata recipe did you get it? This blog is so different than the other one. I am not skilled on this one so everything may be in outer space by now. I like the new look of you blog, very modern and colourful. By the way the bathroom is to die for, I totally love it.

Thanks for the great comments everyone! Anytime any of you come to my place, I'll gladly give you a tour of my bathroom :D .

Jake, I didn't get anything in re: to the piccata recipe. I'm going to try it this weekend though.

Frankly, I'm surprised the blog background worked lol.
