1/2 Bathroom Renovation - Complete

The carpet installers are coming in two days and it is very exciting. That means I get to put my house back together! In the mean time, we are busy fixing up the rest of the house so it is okay to put new carpet down.

We have a four bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house. The guest bedroom has it's own VERY TINY 1/2 bathroom since it use to the master bedroom. When we moved into the house 9 years ago, we painted very bright colors. The then master bedroom went ORANGE and the 1/2 bathroom went YELLOW.

After fixing it, the now guest bedroom is a medium gray with a lighter gray 1/2 bathroom. I painted the dark wood cabinet white, pulled out the carpet and laid tile & grouted it gray, got rid of the large 1980's mirror and light and put up the new light, new mirror and new medicine cabinet.

The only thing left to do is replace the vanity top. We are looking for a used one since a 25" vanity top in white is over $50 at Home Depot.

The entire thing cost...$150! I paid $80 for the mirror (I was in love with it), $19 for the light today at Home Depot (it was on clearance since it was a floor model), $17 for the tile, $8 for the grout and $18 for the towels at Target. My dad had given me a TJ Maxx gift card for my birthday and I purchased the medicine cabinet for $30 on clearance.

The paint was free since I already had a medium gray left over from the guest bedroom and white left over from another project. I mixed them together to get the lighter gray. The hardware on the vanity was left over from another project as well.

Here are some before & afters:



Coming up finds at Goodwill today. (one of my finds included a pair of pants that retailed for $600!)
