Hey there friends, so glad you are here.
I have a fun, inexpensive bathroom refresh to share with you.
Have you every looked at your home and thought that a particular space just seemed flat?
Well, that was how I felt when I looked at my guest bathroom. It just seemed tired, like it needed a lift.
So I set a budget for $100 with an idea of what I was looking for in this space. I wanted to find some unique pieces for the bathroom and knew just where to look.
Thrift stores and vintage sales are my go to when I want to freshen up a space. Not only because of budget, but because I can always find interesting, one of a kind pieces.
Before I share what I did in the space, let me share what the space looked like prior to the refresh.
Painting this room was not something I needed to do as this room was painted just a couple of years ago in my favorite coastal color, Benjamin Moore – Quiet Moments.
Quiet Moments is a beautiful color that shows as green or blue depending on the amount of natural light your space gets.
If you look at my bathroom space above the color reads a beautiful. soothing blue. In my girlfriends house it reads green like the sample above, so be sure to test it in your space if you decide to use this color.
The goal for this space was to keep it coastal and make just a few changes with the biggest impact.
So with that being said, here is what I did.
First thing, I took everything out of the bathroom, including the window treatment, and left it bare.
The shade came down and I switched out the hooks on our towel rack here because the old ones were all broken.
These are from Hobby Lobby and I am still waiting for them to get more so I can get one more.
Another inexpensive change I made was purchasing this rug that reminded me of sand dollars and brought in some color.
I found the rug at Lowe’s Home Improvement on clearance and felt it was perfect for the space.
The shower curtain came from World Market after Christmas. I was able to use a coupon, getting it for an amazing price.
None of the items in the bathroom were over $30, most were less than that.
It took a while to find exactly what I wanted for the wall, but when I saw this window made into a shelf, I had to have it.
Filling in the cabinet with collections from our walks on the beach, vintage bottles and other items we already had, made it perfect for the space.
Everything came together in this inexpensive guest bathroom refresh. Here is a breakdown of what was spent on the project:
- hooks from Hobby Lobby $4.00 each (3)
- shower curtain from World Market with coupon $20.00
- area rug on clearance from Lowe’s Home Improvement $30.00
- window shelf from a vintage parking lot sale $8.00
That brings this bathroom refresh to a grand total of $70.00.
Not only was there not a lot of money spent, but the items that I used to update the space really added to the personality of the bathroom.
The challenge was to do this on a budget and we accomplished that, even having money left over to add to our next project.
It is not necessary to spend a lot of money to refresh a room. Be open minded and creative when approaching a space and you to can have a fresh room on a budget.
Till next time…
