The master bathroom in our new home had just been completely renovated, so although we will be adding some personal touches it is nice not to have to tackle that project. However, the other two bathrooms we plan on doing some remodeling to. One of them we plan on remodeling in February or March and then will probably hold off a little while before tackling the second one. I had originally been planning on doing this downstairs bathroom first because it's the one that everyone sees, but after giving it a quick mini makeover it has made a big difference so now I am leaning towards doing the girls' bathroom upstairs.
(Sorry in advance for the not so great photos - this room gets zero natural light so it makes photographing it pretty tricky.)
While I am deciding on whether we first tackle the girls' bathroom upstairs or this one downstairs I decided to give this bathroom a quick mini makeover because the flowery tile mural kind of drove me crazy every time I walked by it, plus it's the bathroom everyone uses when they visit. Because we will eventually be remodeling this bathroom I didn't want to spend much money. My goal was to spend under $100 so I was excited to end up at $62!
First I bought a inexpensive shower tension rod for around $10. Then I found some 96" curtain panels at HomeGoods. They were $19.99 for a pack of two panels. I could have gotten away with just two but I wanted it to look nice and full so I ended up buying two packs. I hung it high - right up to the ceiling to help completely hide the shower. Then the only other item I purchased was the little rug. I loved the navy and gray colors in it and it was just $12. Once I had the curtains and the rug, even though it looked fine with the blue walls I thought it would be prettier against a really dark wall. I had some Nightfall on hand so used that (obviously if I had to buy paint it would have brought my cost up a bit more but I still would have come in under $100). I have to say, painting a bathroom is my least favorite! Ha, every time I paint one I cringe the whole time. But the nice thing is it usually goes really quickly!
For the finishing touches I just used things we already owned and hadn't found a spot for yet in our new house. I love the mirror in here!
