Happy Monday! It’s summertime and that means project time! Beyond clothes and makeup, DIY projects are a way I find balance in my life. It’s a great way to express your creativity so today I’m finally pulling together a post on our budget bathroom remodel! I transformed our bathroom for under $100! I have been laid up in bed this last week with a possible torn meniscus, after spending 8 hours a day the previous week redoing our upstairs unit to get it updated and rented out again! DIY projects are on the brain because, until this past week, all I could think about was painting and taping and fixing dryers and skim coating walls! I’ve been up to my elbows in DIY fun! This week…not so much. Very frustrating.
Since my knee injury kept me from doing much of anything this week (I did manage to get the last room taped and painted by splitting it up over 3 days…shhh…don’t tell my doctor!), it was the perfect time to look back over the budget bathroom remodel project I did last fall and pull together my receipts! Plus, maybe it will inspire you to spruce up your bathroom while it’s warm enough to open the windows!
I did a series shortly after we moved into our new house on how I took our super-ugly, dated bathroom and turned into something I can live in for the next few years. Here’s the before and after picture. I’m pretty happy with it!
Eventually we will need to replace the tub in this bathroom and when we do that, it’s likely that the floors will have to go so I didn’t want to spend a ton of money doing updates. I’m finally pulling together this post though because I just have to share – it’s awesome what we were able to do for less than $100 and you can do it too!
How We Remodeled Our Bathroom on a Budget:
This stuff was seriously amazing…I highly recommend!
Already on Hand/Borrowed:
Removed the Floral Wallpaper Border and painted the Baseboard heater (so it would match the pretty white walls!)
On hand already:
- Scrub Brush
- 100-grit sandpaper
- microfiber cloth
- blue tape
- spray bottle
- $32.76 – Style Selections Peel-and-Stick Vinyl Wood Planks in Golden Oak ($45.86 for the case plus a few extras. Returned $13.10!)
- $8.60 – Contour Gauge
- $6.45 – Caulk
Already on hand:
- Large Bowl and Scrub Brush
- Tape Measure
- Utility Knife
All together, that comes to $97.72! Whoohoo! We didn’t replace anything big, but I think it looks a whole lot better than it did when we got the house! It’s totally possible to do a budget bathroom remodel for under $100!
Even if you don’t have time to do this project right now, pin it for later!
Here it is again!
