The wheels have been set in motion. We are redoing my son’s bathroom. My husband and I are reluctant DIYer’s. We do small things but nothing big. No room renovations here. So we are starting with our son’s bathroom because it is the smallest. And we figure that if we mess it up it will be the least expensive to have repaired. So here is my son’s bathroom design plan and some before pictures.
Everything all started when the kids and I were at Lowe’s looking for paint. We passed a little display of a bathroom. My son said to me, “Mom, I really like that.” Awesome. We need new toilets in every bathroom so that’s been planned. But a new vanity? Not really. However, this one was on sale.
When we came home, the hubby said we could swing it. And I had a gift card from Christmas that I could use so, game on!
One of my biggest tips for saving money on home decor is to work with what you have. What we have in my son’s bathroom is tile that isn’t so bad. Its gray. There’s a little pattern to it. It’s clean, in good shape and not dated. So that will stay put along with the tub/shower. Everything else will go to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
What we don’t have is style. The cabinets don’t match. It’s builder basic and ugly. The color is a gold that was painted in the entire house before we moved in. And it’s tight. One door opens to Reid’s bedroom and the other to the play room. We don’t have much space to work with. (Yes, that’s me in the bathtub/shower trying to take a picture.) But just because a space is small doesn’t mean it has to be ugly.
I am so excited about this project! Follow me on Instagram and I will document our progress.
