cloth diaper spayer

hey guys, i made a cloth diaper sprayer out of a kitchen sink spray hose and was wondering if there was a better way. I was gonna make some for some friends and wanted to make it cheaper and prettier.
what i did was T off the toilet water supply then i put a ball valve so i could adjust the flow or have a shut off so my 2 year old cant just grab the hose and "wash" the walls. here's where the problem arose. The toilet is a compression thread while the spray hose is a pipe thread so i had to run a little piece of copper pipe and then an adapter to the spray hose. Was hoping maybe there was an adapter out there that could do it without the section of hose.
Also the parts cost $20 for the hose and sprayer (home depot or rona)
$10 for the T (local plumbing store) $14 for the ball valve (plumbing store) and $1.50 for the adapter (plumbing store) Is there somewhere online that would have these cheaper?
I found this hose and sprayer online and thought i might not need an adapter as it says universal coupling for most applications. but it's also chrome and i wanted white

here's some pics

Good luck finding anything prettier than that. The only thing I can think of that might be better/easier/less fittings on the unit itself is to get one of those garden hose adapting aerators for the bathroom faucet so that you can put that thing away when you're done with it.
