Quick & Easy Budget Savvy Bathroom Makeover
MAKE OVER YOUR BORING BATHROOM WITH THIS QUICK & EASY UPDATE
Did y’all catch our big news over on our Instagram?! We are building our dream home on our family acreage! We are so excited but that means we have to get our current home ready for sale. Future buyers are looking for clean & neutral spaces that they can easily make their own.
With this in mind, I knew we needed to give our spare bathroom a quick & easy budget savvy makeover. It is one of the few rooms in the house that have yet to be touched, so the walls were unpainted & the whole room looks very builder’s grade. I think you are going to love how this quick & easy makeover turned out!
Let me show y’all what we were working with first:
Basically, it was just nothing special. I wanted something a future buyer would love & I know when I walk into a space my first thoughts are if the room is bright, clean & functional. So I started by tackling the bright aspect with some paint!
I started by making the back wall in half with tape. The bottom half I wanted to paint Alabaster White by SW & the rest of the room Gray Screen by SW. Paining Alabaster is one of my
Once my paint was dry I used this awesome stud finder to mark my studs so I would know where I needed to nail in my 1×6. It is important to find studs when hanging heavier pieces of wood because you definitely don’t want to risk it coming down.
After the board was hung I sanded it down to give it a nice smooth finish & caulked around all the edges.
When the caulk drys go ahead & start painting your board. I used the same white paint as I did for the lower half. You can tape off the top but I like to live on the wild side, aka I have to finish before nap time is over & taping takes longer.
Once the wood dried I went ahead & attached my towel hooks. These cute ones are from Lowes & matched the rest of the room’s hardware. I never hang anything with my Straight-Line laser level. It shoots out a laser line so I know exactly where I need to hang each hook so that they are in line with one another. It makes life so much easier because you don’t have to keep remeasuring over & over.
Once the hooks were up the rest was just some online shopping! I bought this super cute gingham shower curtain from Target to add a little pop of color to the room. I also bought some light gray towels to hang from my new hooks!
This little makeover cost me less than $100 & It made a huge difference to the space! Every makeover doesn’t have to cost hundreds of dollars to make a big impact on the room. Sometimes all you need is a piece of wood & some paint! Let me know what y’all think & if you have any questions.
