I’m happy to report that my bathroom mini-makeover is finally complete! Yay!(If you haven’t been following along you can catch up here with the inspiration, the great paint debate, part 1, part 2, and part 3).
Here are some reminders of what I started with:
Here is what little storage I had other than under the sink:
And here is the other wall:
The last step towards improving my bathroom was simple accessories:
I replaced the knobs on the under sink cabinet with something a little sparklier ($4.99 each at Home Depot), I added a little whimsy in the form of my English rubber ducky (a Christmas gift from my brother who lives in London), a pretty Peony in a glass vase (HomeSense – $9.99), some new stainless steel accessories – soap dispenser, toothbrush holder, etc. (Great Canadian Superstore – these were a gift from my mom) and some glass jars filled with cotton pads and swabs (I already owned the jars).
And this is my favorite part:
I call them Velma and Daphne after two characters in a favorite childhood cartoon. Velma and Daphne were purchased at Winners for $25, and they add a little colour to my otherwise very blue and white bathroom.
And the other wall:
When I originally started this mini-makeover my goal was to complete it for less than $300, but given the money I unexpectedly had to pay for faucet installation this wasn’t quite feasible:
- Part 1 – Paint and moulding – $35
- Part 2 – New lighting, faucet and faucet installation – $300 (eek!)
- Part 3 – Additional storage – $95
- Part 4 – New accessories – $50
- Grand Total – $480
Do I wish that I had managed to do the makeover within my original budget? Yes, but even though I ended up spending quite a bit more than I had originally hoped to pay, I’m quite pleased with the final results and I think it was worth it – do you?
