Bathroom makeover on the cheap + $1 art
Soo you know those projects you start and then never finish? Yup… that was my guest bathroom! I stenciled the ceiling over a year ago and then never got around to finishing it. It was just one of those things I put off. Last weekend we finally got it done! I didn’t want to go over the top and spend a lot of money, but I did a few simple things that I think made a big difference! Here’s some fun tips… and scroll down to the bottom if you’d like to purchase the $1 art for your bathroom!
5 quick tips:
- Give the walls a new fresh coat of paint! This is the cheapest way to change the look of a room!
- Frame the mirror. You can find a great DIY tutorial here.
- Paint over the cheap cabinets and update the hardware. Hobby Lobby has great hardware for really cheap.
- Shop at thrift stores for decor you can up-cycle.
- Update the plumbing and light fixtures. I found mine at Lamps Plus. Watch for sales.
I found the gorgeous frame at Savers 2 years ago and it has been sitting in my garage this whole time. Can you believe it?! I finally pulled out my white spray paint and it looks good as new! I found things from around the house to put in the holes and my son added the animals in the bottom two. He’s such a good helper. I left them there, because they actually look kinda cute, don’t you think?! This is the guest/kids bathroom so it totally works!
I also found two old mason jars and spray painted the lids with hammered metal spray paint. Then I filled them with cotton balls and q tips.
Love my lighting found at Lamps Plus. I also love this soap from Target. The packaging is so pretty. I also made some more sugar scrub. It dresses up the sink a little bit. ;)
These are the cute knobs at found at Hobby Lobby. They were $4 each! Score!
You may remember when I stenciled my ceiling here. I love the look! My neck still hurts thinking about it though…
