Master Bathroom Makeover on a Budget!


I would have loved to rip out the entire thing and start over but WHAT TO DO ON A BUDGET??
So here was my solution for a more updated beautiful bathroom that would not break the bank.
I left the shower surround and tub surround the same, but everything else I took out and started from scratch. New shower door, new toilet, new cabinet in the toilet room, new fixtures, new lighting, new cabinets which I measured and then ordered from Lowe's, new sinks and then I had a granite company cut a remnant granite for my master bath which made it less expensive. The tall cabinet we did not attach to the wall nor made it permanent in case we got tired of it or ever sold the house and the new owners did not like the look. I wanted more storage so therefore that tall cabinet even though it might not be the most pleasing aesthetic design. Except for the granite, I installed everything myself, with a little manly brawn to carry the large items and help me move them around and position them, other than that it was all me.
BEFORE- prefab countertop in builder beige, builder beige walls, gold fixtures and the giant lightbulb fixture and white tile floor with gross stained grout!

    Thanks! I love our blue bedroom, it;'s soothing. I was thinking that same blue when I had my shutters and windows in mind..

    What you did is so beautiful. What a transformation. Loved seeing you right up there on that ladder. It is really lovely. I especially love the cabinet, what a great idea.
