Baby Prep: Finishing the Bathroom for $100
Here's what the bathroom used to look like:
Well, here it is after I finally worked on it last week.
That bathmat cost me $10. The owl toothbrush holder cost me $8. They were the first things I bought--even before picking out a paint color. It went something like this: I walked to the bath section of the store, saw the owl, thought holy-cow-I-must-have-that-NOW-because-owls-and-color-and-cute-and-OWLS.
After that, I chose a BEHR color called Nature's Reflection. A sample of that cost me $4 and a gallon and some supplies cost me $40.
P.S. Check out that corner piece on the pic below. This shoddy, slapdash paint job is part of the reason we want to strip and redo the trim in our home.
I know that I've made a wall hook project before, but I took the easy way out this time and just bought one from the store for $15.
So the cost breakdown of everything for the room:
Paint and supplies: $50
Mounted towel hooks: $15
Room decor: $35
That's a room project I can totally live with. It's still pretty basic, but it's a huge step up from where we started!
Keep it real,
