Budget Bathroom Makeover

2 Days
After 5 years of trying to scrub the plastic wall clean, and almost two years asking my husband to redo this bathroom, I finally snapped.
Before. No matter how I decorated, I still only saw the plastic wall and lime green paint.
I grabbed a hammer and a screwdriver and started removing everything!
Even the too deep linen closet tucked behind the wall.
Leaving my husband no choice but to get started. There literally was no wall behind the plastic sheet.
We painted with leftover grey from our living room renovation.
Painted the cheap fixture to look old and added cool new bulbs. (Lowe's only $4)
Painted the white pressboard vanity with American Paint Company chalk paint. It actually makes our cheap sink look nicer. We had just enough flooring left from our living room too. This budget makeover is really coming together.
I hate towel bars. This old board is one of many I've pulled from our creek after a flood. A little whitewash and hooks from Hobby Lobby (half priced of course)
I Love how it turned out.
There are several buckets and baskets on the wall since I removed the closet.
This is much better than the closet!
