The $160 Bathroom Makeover

One of my goals for a beautiful life is to finish my home's makeover one room at a time. The bathroom is finally done! Here's the before...

Now are you ready for the after??

The shower curtain, which was the color inspiration, and the rugs I already had. The green paint was $12, I only had to buy a quart and still have some left, the white paint I already had. I spent $30 on the shelving and about another $30 on the accessories (including the picture frames). I love it because it looks pretty but also gives me storage that I desperately need, after all this is America's smallest bathroom. The best steal was the towel bar, toilet paper holder, and towel ring, I got them all for a total of $11! I kept the existing vanity but added knobs ($2 each) and a new faucet ($40). I changed out the medicine cabinet for a smaller one ($30), the old one was too big you couldn't open the doors all the way. For the artwork I just took a couple pictures of my kids in towels. Then lastly a new curtain I made with some leftover white fabric for about $3 . There you have it, a complete bathroom makeover for only $160!
