Home Tour: Master Bathroom {Rox's House}


Since this is not a house we planned on living in for long, we wanted to spend just enough to "update" some necessary features without breaking the bank.

I'm really excited at how much cleaner and pulled together this space feels with minimal work.

The paint job alone totally transforms a room (and is pretty inexpensive).

















 The bathroom was paint a wheat yellow before.

Again, I say, don't judge me.

I probably painted this room about 7 or 8 years ago and CAREFULLU selected this color.

Let's just say I'm so glad it's gone.

I continued the same gray paint we used in the rest of the house (a 5 gallon bucket of Farrell Calhoun Paint was used on every wall in our 1200 square foot house and we still have some to spare!)

I then spray painted the brass light fixture, towel ring, and towel bar.

M made the frame for the mirror using simple white wood from Home Depot.  We painted it with leftover black outdoor paint from our front and back doors (if you take on this project, make sure to paint the back of the wood as well, at least along the inside edge...you'll be able to see it because of the the double-paned mirrors).









We then applied wood glue (gorilla glue, to be exact...my favorite), placed them directly on the edge of the mirror, and secured them with painter's tape until they dried.

We let them dry about 6-8 hours just to be sure and they haven't budged!



And just so you can see that a simple bathroom update doesn't have to cost an arm and leg, here's a cost breakdown:

Shower Curtain Rod: $20
Wall Paint: Free (Leftover)
Oil-Rubbed Bronze Spray Paint: $8
White Wood (Mirror Frame): $15
Frame Paint: Free (Leftover)
Toilet Handle: $7

TOTAL: $50

Have you done any home updates on a budget?

Happy Thursday, y'all!
