Glidden, make over my kids bathroom, please #gliddengallons

Ok, so Glidden is my favorite product lately. It has already helped me give my dining room a makeover. It is on the verge of giving my back porch new life. I'm really hoping it can help me with my kids bathroom too.
This post is an entry to a contest to win a $250 Walmart gift card for a makeover project in my home. My kids bathroom is in such rough shape, I would love to be able to gut it and start from scratch, but I can't afford that. What I can afford, if I win this gift card, is some paint, a new mirror, a new towel rack, a new shower curtain, a new toilet, a new sink, new taps, new tiling on the floor, maybe even a new bathtub. Ok, I might not be able to do EVERYTHING with a $250 gift card, but I can sure make a very good start.
My parents are coming for a visit from Canada in two months and it would be great for them to be comfortable in the bathroom for a change.
Here are a few pictures of the bathroom I need done......    
This is all the shelving I have in the whole bathroom. That's why everything ends up on the floor on the vanity, in a big mess. The mirror was glued to the wall and now the glue lines seep through. The towel rack is broken. The curtain in the window is actually a pillowcase (sigh).        

Do not adjust your eyes, the toilet is crooked. Every time I sit on it I feel like I'm going to fall off. It's been like that since we moved in here. Not to mention the toilet lid was broken and somehow glued back together. Again, it's been like this since we moved in.

As I said, everything ends up on the floor because there's no shelving anywhere. Also, when the tub cracked (which is why I need a new tub or at least a new liner since it's been fixed) the floor took a hit so we had to temporarily put this piece of wood down until we can get the whole floor fixed.

Here is my video entry. It's a bit long at just over 4 minutes but.....
