Today I wanted to share with you our recent bathroom face-lift. We have 2 bath's in our home, both on the small side and windowless too. Above is a before pic. When we moved in 5 years ago, we painted this bathroom, added a new shower curtain and changed out the light fixture. I liked it but I wanted a change and some things, such as the faucet were in desperate need for a change.
Another before. Notice ugly, ugly faucet and ugly off white vinyl floor which was in pretty bad shape.
And the after! We painted the vanity an off white and added new knobs. And I love my new floor! Hubby laid this floor right over the old. I love the look of the dark with the sun-kissed walls!
The color of the walls isn't totally true in these pics. It's a sun-kissed apricot and much softer.
I love my new faucet and shower curtain.
Hubby painted the cupboard behind the door ( I store towels and toiletries here) and added new knobs.
The mirror/medicine chest got a new coat of paint. Actually everything that was oak, including the towel rack got a fresh coat of paint.
New towel ring and towel.
A better look at the floor. It's a laminate we purchased at Home Depot and it's made by Hampton Bay the color is Blackened Maple.
I found the shower curtain online and on sale at Bed, Bath and Beyond. I also had a free shipping offer too, so my cost really was just $19.95.
The faucet was our most expensive purchase but we were able to buy on sale for under $70. at a local big box store.
My farmhouse looking soap dish. A recent purchase on our trip to Galena with Jane and Al.
We purchased the knobs on sale as well. They match the faucet and light fixture which I forgot to take a picture of.
Here's the run down and final cost.
One gallon of Sun-Kissed Apricot by Glidden for the walls: $26
One gallon of off white paint store brand: $15
My tip here is to buy really good paint. Hubby had to do 3 coats with this store brand paint. I suggested we buy another gallon but being the thrifty fellow that he is, he just kept a painting!
New shower curtain: Bed, Bath and Beyond online: $19.95
Blackened Maple flooring: $50
New bathroom faucet : $69
8 new knobs: $7
New towels and soap dish: Towels TJ Maxx and Soap Dish in Galena. $15 total
Grand Total for our bathroom face-lift: $202
Not too bad I think and I am totally happy with it right now.
Thanks for stopping by everyone, I am going to be making the rounds to visit soon.
But today is also my talented Hubby's birthday and I need to figure out how to make him a homemade Butterscotch pie and do a little babysitting as well.
Have a wonderful week!
