Basement Bathroom Makeover

Take a bathroom from blah to beautiful on a budget!

Take a bathroom from blah to beautiful on a budget!

In case you are new here or just forgot, we moved from Phoenix to Iowa about a year and a half ago.  We love our home, but it was definitely all "real estate beige" when we moved in.  I've been slowly working on adding some character to each area of our new home.

Today I'm going to show you our most recent makeover-- our basement bathroom!  This bathroom is primarily used by my daughter, but it is also available for guests when they are in town or just for friends on playdates and such.  So I wanted to take things up a notch from this basic bathroom:

Bathroom Before Blah

All we needed was a little paint, new flooring, and a new vanity top to make this bathroom look brand new!

Because I'm on a budget, making major changes to the bathroom was out of the picture.  Tip- paint is fairly inexpensive and completely changes a room!  Plus, it's easy to change down the road if you need to.

I painted the walls my new favorite color: Sherwin Williams Sea Salt.

I used General Finishes Milk Paint in Driftwood to update the vanity.  Then we also installed a new, more modern vanity top.

We picked out some 12x24 adhesive laminate flooring.  It's literally just trim to size, peel, and stick.  Having an updated floor makes a huge difference in how this room looks!

We also replaced the builder's grade mirror with something a little more stylish.  I found this one at HomeGoods for about $20.  Not a bad deal!

I use white towels for my guests since they are easy to bleach and keep clean.   And see that cute sign in the mirror?  I've got a tutorial coming up for it later this week.

Still waiting to find the perfect artwork to hang here over the toilet.  Any suggestions?  I'm looking for something modern farmhouse style....
