We began our budget bathroom makeover just after my son left for college. Check out the final results of this hall bath transformation that we completed for less than $200!

Well, maybe just a little sneaky peek of it for now. 😉 Before I show you everything, let’s take a look back at where we started.

Cornflower blue paint, gray striped shower curtain, white towels, large builder-grade mirror (with tons of finger prints…🙈) and brown wood recessed panel cabinets. Blah.

My daughters and I wanted to give the space a whole new feel. It was time to add a little glitz and glam. And ditch the blue, because in some lights it looked a little too close to Carolina Blue and we are an NC State house now! 🐺🐾 The only catch? Our budget was just $200.

Mission accepted!

Our Budget Bathroom Makeover

This makeover is largely brought to you thanks to the power of some paint! Because our budget was small, we decided to keep the striped gray shower curtain and fluffy white bathmat. I chose Benjamin Moore’s Horizon (1478), a light gray with a cool undertone for the walls.

Next, we painted the cabinets with Benjamin Moore’s Advanced paint in Kendall Charcoal and added mercury glass knobs for some bling. My husband built a frame for the mirror for less than $20. And I gave the light fixtures’ globes a mercury glass finish for a little more sparkle.

After these bigger changes, it was time to add some extra touches to finish the space.

I had $30 left to add some pretty touches to the room. We already had the white hand towels and we decided to keep the white-framed wall art. All of our bath and hand towels in our home are white! I like to add bleach to the wash to keep them sanitized. Plus all my kids use acne creams that contain ingredients that discolor colored towels. All that to say, I didn’t need to buy any new towels.

Adding the Decor

We found these cute little pink plastic bins to go inside the cabinets we’ve had for several years over the toilet. The 2 sets of 3 were just $6 at HomeGoods. We also picked up the letter board for $8 while we were there. My girls have a lot of fun changing out the quotes!

We put together the flower bucket using some silk flowers we had around the house. And the girls received that sweet little terrarium as a Christmas gift.

We got a soap dispenser and cups that look like marble (they’re actually ceramic) from HomeGoods for $13. I love that place!

Full disclosure: I may have moved some items around for these pictures. 😉 The counters are rarely this neat. After all, the bathroom is shared by two teenage girls…

I splurged a little a few weeks ago for those pink mercury glass containers from a vendor I’ve befriended on Instagram. If you’re not following us there, go check us out for all kinds of sneak peeks into what goes on in our lives. The 3 containers were $24 (including shipping), so if you include them, then I did go over the $200 budget by $21.

  1. Really like all you’ve done and how inexpensively re-decorating can be nowadays. I know the twins have to love having their own space, and being clearly “girly” may just be a deterrent for their very manly brother!
