$450 Half Bath Makeover




     You guys. I'm freaking out because we have ourselves the cutest little half bath in the world. I am so excited about this transformation!! When we first moved into this house there was a very strong urine smell that kind of snuck through a good portion of the downstairs. This bathroom just needed some TLC. And that's exactly what this little cutie got! Although this house of ours needs a lot of updating, it has great bones and it really is coming along nicely. We did this entire bathroom for right around $450. That includes a new toilet, fixtures, etc. You can find the entire source list at the bottom of this post. Here are the photos of the bathroom before:





And here are the afters:


I mean is it even the same bathroom?!? It sure doesn't feel like it! 



Could you just die? So stinking cute right? This is exactly the style we want to stick with throughout the rest of the house. I love that its got a little bit of country farmhouse feel with tiny bits of an industrial thrown in the mix, too. I have spent years trying to find "my style" and this bathroom is such a great example of finally figuring that out. My favorite part was picking out all of the fixtures and accessories. We talked about replacing the vanity, but its amazing what a little bit of paint and new hardware can do! I do think we will eventually replace the faucet and sink, but it isn't a priority to me right now. We have a couple of small other things that need to be done in this room (like adding a baseboard behind the toilet, ehem) but for the most part it is finished and we can move on to bigger projects. Yay!


Here is the entire source list for our bathroom makeover-

Light Fixture- Allen & Roth Lowe's $120
Mirror- Homegoods $80
Toilet- Kohler (on sale) Home Depot $170
Flooring-Scraped Apple Cinnamon from Home Depot (I want to note that I normally wouldn't put hardwoods in a bathroom, but we really did not want to disrupt the flow of the rest of the downstairs so we just stuck the hardwood in. No transition strip, no problem! ;)
Paint for the Cabinet- Behr Oil Based Cabinet Paint $40
Wall color- Sherwin Williams Sea Salt $40
Shelf-DIY $15

So there you have it! Our cute little bathroom makeover makes me so happy. I just want to hang out in this room all day. Probably because it is currently the nicest room in our house. Ha! We really need to get a move on! What do you guys think about our new half bath? What is your favorite change? Happy Thursday friends!

    1. Thank you so much, Kim! I just keep sitting on the toilet lid staring at it. Haha! It really does feel like a new room. I planned the wall color for our master bedroom but I loved it so much I decided to spread it to other rooms of the house, too. ;)
