Budget Friendly Bathroom Makeover Reveal

Way back in May, we gave the office a major makeover as part of the One Room Challenge. Even now, I can’t believe this is actually where I get to work each day. Grateful seems too simple a word for this space that gives me so much inspiration.

We hadn’t even finished the office makeover when my mom and I “went down a rabbit hole” and started moving things around in the bedroom. We didn’t make any big changes just small decorative changes that made a big impact and helped the room to look more polished.

The office and bedroom are connected to the bathroom completing a suite of rooms on one end of the house. There wasn’t anything wrong with the bathroom. Honestly, I could have lived with the way it was decorated. Deep in the back of my mind though, I wanted the spaces to look a bit more unified and the bathroom was the one room that was so close but just not quite there yet.

Late last week, we painted the bathroom cabinet and I can’t even tell you how much it changed the look of the bathroom. It makes the entire space look bigger which is so exciting. Just like with the bedroom, I wanted to make impactful and budget friendly changes that would help to decoratively join all three spaces. Here’s a look at how all of the details came together…

When you want to unify or complement adjoining spaces without making them look too theme-y, repeat colors, style and a few common elements that can be found in each area. For these rooms, it meant…adding staples that have Southern charm like cut crystal and tarnished silver,

Inside the water closet is one of my favorite oil paintings, I have no idea who this lady is – she’s not one of my people as my dad would say – but I love her determined no nonsense expression. She definitely looks like she could be the lady of the house.

I gotta tell you guys, it feels so nice to have these spaces completed. None of these changes cost a lot of money. In fact, other than buying paint and supplies the extras were less than $50.

Part of helping to keep the costs down was shopping the house to find things I had on hand and could use. The other part is my style has finally evolved into something completely intentional and that makes me excited for how the rest of the house is taking shape.

If you’re still in search of your signature style, be encouraged the elements are probably already in your home right now. Walk around to each room and look to see what commonalities exists. Do you find yourself repeating certain colors, patterns, textures or finishes? If so, you’re well on your way to creating a collected look you can be proud of.

      Thank you, Kimm, I appreciate it. The burlap coffee sack turned bath mat was less than $10. The writing is all but faded now but you already know that is totally up my alley. Sending you hugs for a happy week, CoCo

    I love the changes you have made! It looks so cohesive with your space. Funny thing is, I was in Picker’s Market and commented to Bridgette how cohesive your booth is looking. I noticed. I’m sure others are also. It has such a nice fanciful country feel with pops of blue that I adore.

      You’re so sweet, Nancy, thank you! Everything feels so much better now that it’s all cohesive. There are a few changes coming up that I’m excited about but I finally feel like everything at home and in the booth are coming together. Hugs, CoCo

    Love the painting of the lady! In our guest house hangs a picture of a Scottish gentleman in full kilt dress. My husband’s forefathers came from Scotland but he isn’t a relative ( that we know of). He now presides as Lord of the Manor.

      That is so cool Betty! I love stories like that. I don’t know what it was about this lady but I loved her as soon as I saw her. My sisters swear she looks kind of sour but I think she looks determined 🙂 Sending you hugs, CoCo
