Half Bathroom Mini Makeover – Navy, Gray & White
Our half Bathroom was less than pretty, so I decided to do a mini bathroom makeover without spending much money.
First I removed the old towel/soap holders and patched the holes.
Cost = $0.00 (already had supplies to patch the holes)
Then I measured and marked the walls of the half bathroom to get both sides even with a line along the bottom of the window sill to create an accent strip. Since our shelf has some gray on it, I opted for a gray color of paint for the accent stripe. I painted the stripe quickly since I was adding molding and didn’t need to worry about getting a straight line.
Cost = $7 (clearance gallon of paint at Home Depot)
Next I added the molding atop the painted stripe, added a couple of accessories, and added the shelf to the half bathroom (which I already had). My husband also changed the blinds, which is another whole-house project we were working on, and I’ll share in another post. I still have to add caulk to the edges of the molding, but below are the (almost) complete photos.
Cost = $4 each for the two pieces of molding (home depot), towels and art decor $12 (Marshall’s)
-Side note: I cut the molding myself at home with a power saw, but you can cut them/have them cut at home depot to the size you need.
*Faux wood blinds were an additional $40, but that cost wasn’t part of this project
Here are the before and after views of the half bathroom… $23 and some manual labor, and this bathroom looks so much better! Remember, sometimes simple is best. For those of us looking for a quick and inexpensive upgrade to a small room, bathroom, or half bathroom, an accent stripe is a great option.
