Before we left to house hunt, we were working on finishing a few projects. Namely, the master bathroom and the kitchen backsplash. The master bath revamp was done on a budget. Like $200, budget. Here’s how it looked when we moved in…and, well, for the last two years #yikes:
And here’s how it looks now:
And because some readers said they prefer before and afters side by side. Same pics:
The changes involved painting the walls and vanity and adding hardware, laying vinyl tiles, and adding a shiny new shower rod and towel hooks and frosting the window in the shower. The shower curtain and hamper are from West Elm and I ordered them before we knew we were moving, which is a little ironic because our new house has all closet showers and no need for a shower curtain…yet.
Above the toilet, we hung a couple shelves from Ikea (we hung the same ones in the hall bath) and I put a few photos and my large ceramic penguin I scored a few years back.
On the opposite side of the room, we replaced the old light with one from Lowe’s, added a new towel holder and a painting I did a few years ago.
For around $200, we’re kicking ourselves for not doing these few tweaks years ago so that we could enjoy them ourselves, but we’re excited about our new adventure and challenges in our new house. Although, spoiler alert: there’s no stenciled trim.
