Let me start this post by saying thank you to everyone that linked this week to Tuesdays at Our Home.
I appreciate your support very much. :)
Today, I am sharing the changes I have made to our guest bathroom.
I got a little tired of the darker colors and went a lighter this time around.
Here is the before picture.
To be truthful, I didn't want to spend a bunch of money changing things in this space, so I gave myself a $50.00 budget. Let me show you what I did.
First, I emptied the whole bathroom, cleaned it from top to bottom and I patched and spot painted
all the little nail holes on the wall.
The next day I went to Ross and I purchased a new set of drapes in a neutral color that will allow me
to make changes later on without having to replace them again.
To save some money, I used the existing bar.
Meanwhile, my husband built me some new ledge shelves.
I tried shopping on line for these, but they were quite expensive.
Thanks to my husband, they were free for me since he used leftover wood and paint we already had.
I painted them rubbed bronze first and when that was dried, gave them a light coat of of sating Heirloom White.
To finish them off, we added a little Fleur de Lis embellishment.
And soon after that, my very empty bathroom was ready to get dressed up. :)
To decorate the bathroom and shelves, I just "shopped" my storage and linen closets.
Using some old frames I had and the Silhouette Cameo, I made a few decor items which I paired with a little greenery and some orange accents for the Fall season.
Underneath, I placed another old frame I made with a glass knob from Hobby Lobby and a basket
with a few extra hand towels.
On the vanity, I just added the vase I found at Ross on clearance, a few orange branches I already had from last Fall and the old candle holder I had in the kitchen over the Summer.
On the opposite wall, I used the old frame I fixed last month, a few towels and I used the old metal basket I bought at Kirklands a few years ago to store at hand a few more bathroom supplies.
I finished the bathroom with a new creamy rug, also from Ross.
It came with two pieces, but I only used the larger one.
Here is a before and after.
Lets see how I did on my budget.
And that is my $50.00 bathroom remodel.
Hope this post gives you the inspiration to make changes in your home on a budget.
With a little shopping around and using old things you already have in your homes, you can make changes without spending a lot money.
Thank you all so much for your visit.
See you soon!
