This budget bathroom makeover transformed a hall bathroom shared by teen girls into a modern and pretty space for less than $200!
Do you love a good makeover?
How about a makeover that costs less than $200?
That only takes one weekend to complete?
Then I’ve got a project to show you!
If you’re visiting us from HomeTalk, or if you’re new to our blog, Hello and welcome to Simply2Moms!
We’re friends who are lucky to live across the street, and we’d love to be friends with you.
After all, if you’re here right now we must have stuff in common!
We love sharing simple (and budget-friendly!) ideas for home decor and DIYs. Plus some healthy meal inspiration and recipes, and tips for raising teens and beyond.
Now let’s take a look at where this bathroom started!
Cornflower blue paint, gray striped shower curtain, large builder-grade mirror (with tons of finger prints…) and brown wood recessed panel cabinets.
Definitely some room for improvement, right?!
After sharing a bathroom with their older brother for over a decade, my twin daughters were excited to give the room some girly details!
It was time to give the space a whole new feel.
Add a little glitz and glam.
The only catch? Our budget was just $200.

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 the finishing touches.
I had about $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 leave stains on 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 bins 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!
Yes, we’re all fans of The Office around here. Did you see the quote AnnMarie’s son hung in his bedroom?

We put together the flower bucket using some silk flowers I had around the house.
We got a soap dispenser and cups that look like marble (they’re actually ceramic) from HomeGoods for $13.
I might love that place as much almost as AnnMarie does!
The girls received this sweet little terrarium as a Christmas gift.
I ended up technically busting my budget when I bought the pink mercury glass accents about two months after we finished the project for $21.
I saw them one day on Instagram and knew they would be perfect to finish the space. By the way, if you’re not following us there, why not?! LOL! We would love to see you there too. 🙂
Including the pink mercury glass, I went over the $200 budget by $17.
