Bathroom on a Budget: Part 1

Today I will give you a tour of the "quirky guest bathroom" in my husband and I's new home! Our house was built in the 1920s, so has all the old cracks and uneven floors and odd shaped rooms that you would expect. There are 2 full bathrooms in the house and both are segmented. The second floor bath, which we are considering the guest bathroom, was orange when we moved in. It has a big stained glass window facing the interior of the house. I have never LOVED stained glass, but once we cleaned it up and repainted the space, it toned it down a bit. While I love an all-white, marble bathroom and dream of all the pictures I have pinned to my Pinterest board, we were working on a minimal budget and needed a quick update for the time being. See how a can of paint, some Clorox Clean-Up, and some new towels spruced up this bathroom below. Eventually some bigger changes are in store, but for now, it's just perfect! Stay tuned for part 2 in the near future...

The bathroom before....


I painted the walls a nice shade of grey, using Valspar from Lowe's. I also took the mirror and spray painted it white to brighten up the space! 

I added a pretty hook I found at Anthropologie for under $20 to the door to hang my favorite Simply Vera Wang for Kohl's chevron bath towels! The towels hanging on the new Moen towel bar were found for $6 each at Target! 

We updated the faucet to a new Moen brushed nickel one, found at Lowe's for about $80! This Savon De Marseille soap is my favorite, but I buy it at Home Goods, where it's only $7!
