This was another one of our projects that we had very little time to complete and no money. For the past year I'd been looking at the walls of our main bathroom knowing I should have painted in that room years ago. Now that it is finished I wonder why, like a lot of things, it took me so long to get in there and get it done. But that is just how life works sometimes and now that it is complete I'm really happy with the results. Definitely worth the wait.
The majority of this renovation was focused in two areas. First up was our vanity which I painted with paint I'd purchased a few years ago when I did the vanity in our downstairs bathroom. It was a sample of paint I'd purchased for $2.94 along with a box of 8 knobs I'd bought from Amazon for $10.96 making them a steal at just $1.37 each. They were $3.99 a piece at Home Depot at the time so a huge savings here.
I installed self adhesive vinyl floor tiles to the bottom of the cabinet in order to clean it up and make it easier to keep it that way. The tiles were a bargain at just 67¢ each. I bought 8 of them and I still have one left to use when I do the same thing to the downstairs bathroom vanity. I used a Home Depot gift card to pay for the tiles so this vanity upgrade was literally a no cost project.
The next big thing we did in there was to add new trim along the ceiling and wainscot the wall. I had used a Visa gift card at Lowes to purchase two contractor's packs of trim and after completing the master bedroomI still had one piece left plus a full pack along with some leftover pieces. I purchased five corner trim pieces plus used three full trim pieces and some leftover pieces to complete the trim along. I used my gift card at Lowes to pay for the corner trim.
The wainscot wall was completely done with the textured wallpaper we had leftover after completing our entry way and dining roomrenovations. I pulled the chair rail trim out of my stash in the garage. It was from the FREE WOOD bin. Wainscoting the wall was another no cost project.
We picked up a gallon of paint at Home Depot and a couple supplies and gave the walls and ceiling two good coats of paint. The paint was $36.98 and I used a gift card to cover those expenses as well.
A can of spray paint updated our robe hook, two towel bars and the toilet paper holder and I bought a new drywall mounting kit to reinstall them. Again the paint and mounting kit was purchased with a Home Depot gift card.
Lastly I switched out our old shower head for a new dual spa set that we absolutely love. This was definitely a splurge item and I'm really glad I did it. I picked it up at Bed Bath & Beyond on sale for $39.99 and used a $10 OFF coupon they had sent me in the mail to drop the price even lower.
I decorated the room with our same towels, shower curtain and bath mat as well as a few other items from around the house. No additional money spent there and I'm completely happy with that. I wasn't feeling the urge to change the decor anyway. Just freshen things up and make some improvements, which I think I did quite nicely.
I sure can't complain about the cost to complete this project! #BudgetAndFinances #CraftsAndProjects #Recycling #OurHome
