DIY bathroom makeover | HometalkMart 21, 2021
Our guest bathroom on the second floor is finally ready and I couldn’t be happier with the results !! It feels and looks like a whole new room!
The husband and tall Joe removed all the hideous tiles from the floor and bathtub. Unfortunately we could not save the drywall in the tub area. All building materials, including drywall repair and tile preparation and placement, cost $ 153.12.
The walls, paneling, and ceiling have been repainted with some paint I got from another room. I used Benjamin Moore, Chatsworth cream for the wall, and Simply White for the cladding. I also used Benjamin Moore’s white ceiling paint, which cost me $ 20.00
We installed new 12 “x 24” bamboo porcelain tiles in the bathroom. We used the Oyster color on the floor and we used both Oyster and Walnut in the tub area. I’m a fan of bigger tiles in a smaller space. it just makes everything big and open! I found a fantastic deal on this tile at $ 1.89 per square foot. The total tile purchase was $ 212.00.
The original vanity was in great condition so a little bit of color on this piece made a difference day and night. The countertop, however, had to go. I replaced it with an IKEA butcher’s block countertop that husband and big Joe cut for me. This cost $ 100. I also replaced the hardware. Luckily my local Rona has been closed and everything has been put up for sale. All of the hardware cost me $ 11.08 (what a bargain!). I also replaced and changed the position of the toilet roll holder. This cost $ 9.99 from IKEA.
Using the existing builder mirror, I created a frame with baseboards and thumbtacks. You can find step-by-step instructions in my post. I love the effect of this mirror in the bathroom! Again, I bought these supplies at Rona’s closing sale for $ 30.58.
This bathroom wouldn’t be complete without a chandelier, would it ?! I found this piece at my local thrift store. I didn’t do anything and it actually set the tone for the rest of my color palette. I love finding a good quality piece for $ 14.99, don’t I?
The towel rail, wall art, and shower curtains were all DIY projects from moi! I will blog about these projects in my next posts. Here is a breakdown of the materials: shower curtain / rails purchased from Target & Fabricland $ 67.96; the towel rail $ 9.91; and wall art $ 8.46.
The total cost of my bathroom renovation is… drum roll please …………. $ 654.12!
A Reno bathroom for under $ 700? It’s not that shabby at all!
