Learn some bathroom makeover ideas with weekly updates during the month of January, as part of the $100 room challenge.
During the last two Januarys, I have I participated in the $100 Room Challenge hosted by Erin Meyers of Lemons Lavender and Laundry.
The first year I tackled our master bedroom. It was great to have it all spruced up without spending a ton of money. Last year, I tackled my home office. It was quite a challenge but one that I desperately needed.
In case you missed them you can find the makeovers here:
This year I’m going after our 2nd-floor hall bathroom.
Now that my girls are in their 20’s and live on their own it’s time to upgrade the bathroom from The Little Mermaid theme to something more grown up and suitable for any guests.
The big question is, “Can I really do this on a $100 budget?”
Fast forward on this makeover:
Here she is, the little mermaid in all her glory. I still like this shower curtain. It’s so cheery and bright. Even though it’s several years old it’s in great shape. Still, it will be the first thing to go if I want to make this bathroom look more grown up.
I’m thinking of a theme that speaks to a fresh spa-like vibe. I’d like it to feel very calm and also crisp and clean.
The second thing to go is this hideous vanity. It’s an original to the house built in the ’80s. I’m going to try to remove the weird decorative molding on the sides, paint it, and replace the hardware.
The window will need a new window treatment. I definitely want to replace the drapes but will need something for privacy as this window faces the front of the house.
This wall above the toilet is screaming for some shelves or new artwork.
Of course, because this room needs it and it’s free, I’ll use some elbow grease to clean up the existing floor, trim and fixtures.
Bathroom Makeover Ideas Recap:
- Cleanup existing trim, fixtures, and floor.
- Purchase new shower curtain and rugs
- Update vanity with paint and hardware
- Purchase mini-blinds for the window and create a new valance.
- Add beauty and function to the wall above the toilet.
All for under $100? It’s a fun challenge and it’s about time this bathroom gets a makeover.
Stop back each Wednesday during this month to see the update for this bathroom and all the other great room makeovers.
