Our guest bathroom has come a loooong way in just a few short weeks. Before we dive into the good stuff, let’s back track to what this space looked like initially.
Dark, awkward, and not the prettiest powder room you ever did see.
We didn’t have much of a budget for this space, so I was forced to make a few small changes with hopes that they would make a big impact.
I’m happy to say those small tweaks made a huge difference and I’m very pleased with the new look for our guest bathroom.
Here was our original gameplan for the space. I think we really stuck to our initial vision.
And here’s what we completed on our to-do list…
- Paint (We went with Sherwin Williams’ Repose Gray. Read more about the paint in our new home in this post)
- Remove Basic Mirror & Add one with more personality
- Remove Pendant Lighting & Add Vanity Light
- Move Outlet to More Convenient Location
- Change Hardware on Cabinet
- Install Toilet Paper Holder & Towel Hooks
- Install Shelves for Storage/Accessories over Toilet
- Hang small hand towel next to new Mirror
- Find new shower curtain that is the correct height
- Clean up grout lines
- Add personality with accessories
- Hang Art
It’s crazy what a few inexpensive updates can do to a space. Hiring a handyman to remove the pendant & mirror, and add the new lighting was by far the most costly part of this space. But all of the other tasks were incredibly budget-friendly and didn’t take much time at all.
- Gold hardware
- Towel Hook
- Hand Towel <—love how this hides the wall outlet!
- Vanity Light
- Mirror (estate sale & painted white)
- Wicker Basket
- CTA Print (found at an art show)
- Wood Frame
- Vase (HomeGoods)
- Marble Jar
- White Box (Bed, Bath, & Beyond)
- Candle <—smells amazing!
And just for good measure, let’s do a little side-by-side comparison.
So it seems our master bathroom & our guest bathroom are the only completed spaces in our new home. Now onto the next room…
