Bargain Bath

Our first floor half bathroom was in need of beautification.  For starters I could not stand carpeting in the bathroom, YUCKY and I was not a fan of the apple tree/horse and carriage wallpaper border.  This project needed to be finished quickly and I wanted to keep costs below $100.00.  Here is how I did it:

Shelves above Toilet

Breakdown of project costs:
  • Price Pfister Faucet = $40 EBay (Retails for ~ $140)  Hooray!
  • Wallpaper border placed on top of existing border $15 (including shipping EBay)
  • Light fixture Home Depot = $28
  • 2 door pulls Home Depot Clearance = $5
  • Red paint for vanity & mirror = Free leftover from master bedroom walls
  • picture frames and accessories = Free moved from other parts of the house
  • Linoleum flooring = Free lovely surprise when we pulled out the carpeting
  • Rug = Free from another room in the house
$88 Total = HAPPINESS
