My guest bathroom makeover is DONE! I am so happy to have a pretty, welcoming bathroom and another room that is my style/taste/and finished for now in our fixer upper home.
If you have been following along this month I have been participating along with 20+ other bloggers in a One Month, One Room, $100 challenge. Erin over at Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry started this challenge last year and it happens in various months throughout the year – you can read more about it here. But basically I had $100 and one month to makeover the room I chose which was this bathroom.
This bathroom by Lauren at Bless’er House was my inspiration since it was nearly identical in layout/size to mine and I just loved her makeover.
And here’s how my turned out!
I so wanted to shoot all of the final reveal pictures with the lights off (I hate taking pictures with overhead lights on!) by doing this complicated method involving tripods, timers, lots of editing, and a lens that I don’t even have…but these shots are all I managed to get with a 10 month old baby crawling at my feet and a broken lens I had to hold on my camera to get it to work. This bathroom has no windows and is in a hallway with no windows so it is pretty much pitch dark and almost impossible to shoot with no lights on. Hopefully one day when I upgrade my camera I can reshoot this room and do it proper justice.
But these few shots show you what a soft green is on the walls (Sherwin Williams Sea Salt mixed in Behr paint) and the warmth of all the wood accents I added mixed with all the whites.
Now back to lights on.
Let’s go back and look the before and after again…
And this side of the room before…
I’ll just let you scroll through all the next pictures and then I’ll share links to all the projects and sources at the end.
You can find tutorials and more details on all the following DIY projects I completed in this room below:
- Before/after new paint
- DIY towel rack
- painted cabinet and new cabinet hardware
- DIY rustic window picture display
- DIY framed wood mirror
- DIY floating wood shelves
As for all the items in the room here’s some sources for those:
- paint color – SW Sea Salt mixed in Behr paint
- shower curtain – Target
- towels – Kohl’s
- accessories – most came from my decor stash and some are yard sale finds
- wood lantern – Aldi
- potted plant on shelves – IKEA
- potted greenery on counter – TJMaxx
- rug – Kohls
- shower rod – Kohls
- shower curtain rings – not sure but I spray painted them ORB
- cabinet hardware – D.Lawless Hardware
And here’s how the budget worked out:
- Towel hooks – $7.47
- stain for all wood projects – $8.48
- pulls for cabinet – $9.90
- framed mirror – $12.91
- wood shelves – $17.76
- paint for room, paint for cabinet, window – already had
- shower curtain – $19.99 (on sale a few months back)
- shower curtain rod and rug – $19 (with coupon and percentage off at Kohls)
And the total is $95.51. Right under budget! Not bad for painting an entire room and the cabinet, purchasing new cabinet pulls, buying a new curtain rod/shower curtain/rug, and building 3 different projects for the room too.
I really enjoyed participating in this challenge! It kept me on task for the month and a deadline helped me work hard to get all the projects done and boy has it been a busy month! I plan to do another One Room/$100 challenge soon!
I think you would be blown away to see what everyone else accomplished this month too – click through the links below to see all the other bloggers reveal their room that they completed this month.
