The Girls' Bathroom Design Plan

Work on our bathrooms begins 2 weeks from tomorrow - I'm getting excited!  This is the design plan for the girls' bathroom. 

Paint color:  Benjamin Moore, i love you pink
Wall tile:  Tile Shop, 4" x 8" imperial bianco gloss subway tile
Trim tile:  Tile Shop, imperial bianco cornice
Floor tile:  Tile Shop, 2" hex tile, matte white
Bathtub:  Homeclick, American Standard Huron 4' recessed tub (it's a mini-tub for our mini-bathroom)
Toilet:  Homeclick, Toto Drake
Pedestal Sink:  Faucetdirect, 24" Kohler Memoirs Pedestal
Shower/Tub Faucet, Sink Faucet, Accessories:  Faucetdirect, Moen Kingsley Collection
Medicine Cabinet:  Faucetdirect, Kohler 15" Reversible Hinged Mirrored Medicine Cabinet
Light Fixture:  Faucetdirect, Kichler 5368
Towels:  Pottery Barn Kids, Essential Bath Towels in bright pink
Letter Hooks:  Anthropologie, Alphabet Hooks
Shower Curtain Rod:  Faucetdirect, Speakman Rod
Shower Curtain Rings:  Restoration Hardware, Hot/Cold Shower Curtain Rings (no longer available)
Window Fabric:  Insidefabric, Lee Jofa/Groundworks Daisy Daisy in pink/orange

Luckily, most of the items above were purchased at a discount.  To stretch our budget in home improvement projects, I always try to start searching early so that I can wait for periodic sales, search for online coupons, request price-matching, and negotiate (I was able to bargain some of our big-ticket items down by as much as 60%)!  I'm also a big fan of google's "froogle" service, which helps identify the vendor with the best price for any given item.
