Easy Bathroom Refresh with a Cost Breakdown



The changes I made to the bathroom are pretty subtle and simple but my overall goal was to make the bathroom feel a little cozier and that’s exactly what I achieved. Before it was all white, and it wasn’t bad, but certainly not very cozy. Eventually I would like to give this bathroom a proper renovation but there are many other large projects that are higher on the priority list so this mini facelift will do for now.

Changes made and the cost breakdown

Paint: I didn’t spend anything here because I already had both colors I used on hand. I painted the bead board Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter and the mirror Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron.

Hardware: I was planning on spray painting the cabinet knobs black but they were in pretty poor condition so I ended up ordering new ones from Amazon here and spent $27 for a 10 pack. I also ordered shower ring hooks here for $10. The last thing I ordered were new towel hooks here and spent $20 for 4. I was able to spray paint the towel bar, curtain rod, 2 knobs on the cabinet behind the toilet and the toilet paper dispenser. We have lots of spray paint on hand so I didn’t buy a new can.

Accessories: Our old shower curtain and liner both needed to be replaced so I ordered this liner here for $7 and this shower curtain here from pottery barn that was on sale for $43 at the time! I got a new hand towel that was $10 and the rug was $30 at the time I ordered it.

Total: $147

I still have a little touching up to do with the paint (which might be obvious from some of the pictures) mostly because there is caulking that isn’t paintable all over from the previous owners so I have to go back and find a way to straighten out some of the lines. In the end I am happy with the results and ready to tackle the next project which will likely be much bigger than this one! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
