A weekend and under $200 = one bathroom makeover

The one project I have wanted to tackle lately has been the master bath. Especially every time I cleaned it. DO you ever scrub and scrub and it still feels dirty? Well, that was this bathroom. Yuck.

This is the before photo. This was after a little deconstruction but trust me, it didn't start out much better than this. Ugly carpet, broken vanity (I had a mistreatment over it), stained marble counter, and rust colored walls do not bring a "spa" feeling.

After. Beadboard wallpaper, new craigslist vanity for $40 spruced up with some black paint, and hardware from Hobby Lobby. Oh and new flooring! I will have to update with a picture of that.


After with a shower curtain "mistreatment"

Thanks for stopping by!

    Sarah, The baskets are also from Hobby Lobby. I racked up while I was there! :)

  6. Jenny, it looks so good! You're so talented :) Did you ever find a place for the Pottery Barn coat rack?

  7. I'd love to use the beadboard wallpaper but haven't tried it yet. I'd love to know how it holds up to the rigors and moisture in a bathroom. Great job on a FANTASTIC makeover!

  8. Yeah, we shall see how it holds up but our shower area is in a separate room and I did not put it in there so I don't think it will be too much of a problem.

  9. Beautiful! Where did you get the baskets hanging over the toilet? Love love love those.

  10. I love the new look! Where did you find the beadboard wallpaper? That is amazing stuff!
