Bathroom Remodel



This is our kids' bathroom and it was one of the last rooms to be touched in our house...probably because once I got around to it, I was so sick of stripping wallpaper.  But one morning this fall, Trey and the kids headed off to school and I decided to tackle it (oh and I sorta forgot to mention this to him ; )).

What was done :
  • spray-painted gold mirror black
  • sanded, primed, and painted the cabinets black (I already had the paint from another project)
  • stripped the wallpaper, textured and painted walls (already had paint and texture)
  • hit Ikea for cheap knobs/pulls ($1.99/6 pack of knobs)
  • already had the tile (bought extra accidentally for our other bath - Score!)
  • spent $100 to install tile (would've figured it out myself, but I was having a party that weekend and didn't have the time : ))
  • ordered shower curtain from (animal print was a MUST with my 7 & 9 and year old girls : ))
  • shopped the house for frames and accessories
  • picked up my towel bar and toilet paper holder at Wal-Mart of all places and I LOVE them...installed myself
  • installed new electric outlets and light switches


I still have a few things I want to add to it...some hooks that hold towels better, maybe something above the shower,  couple pieces of trim, maybe a cheap counter top, and couple other little decorations.  I love the results I did on such a small budget and I've got a couple of really happy little girls with this to hear your thoughts and ideas! ; )

  4. All your pics of your remodel make me want to do something similar with the before and after pics of the remodel we did with our house. People still don't understand what I saw in this house when they look at the before pics...the Lord just showed me the potential and knew this is where He wanted us! I will have to show you next time you come over. e

  5. Don't you love being able to see the diamond in the rough? ; ) I'd love to come over and check out your before & afters!
