my Downstairs Bathroom was absolutely atrocious. here is my budget friendly way to update a bathroom with big impact.
both- Rex is still sad that the bars came down!
We needed a cheap but cute shelving option for above the toilet. We couldn't do more than a 10" depth because we didn't want people hitting the back of their heads while they were using the restroom. So we picked up a 1x10 and measured the width from wall to wall. Then a 1x2 was cut to 8". All pieces were stained then sprayed with a matte poly acrylic spray. Rex nailed the 1x2 to studs and then we just rested the 1x10 on top of the 1x2's. I threw some decorations up and we were done!
This is a rough breakdown of supplies that we didn't have on hand!
Door knob $15
Light $15 (it was a pack of two for $30 from Home Depot and we used one in the bedroom)
Rugs and towels $30
Total around $130 not too shabby!
