Alright, who’s ready for a little room reveal on this blah Monday morning?! I’m so happy to stick a fork in this project and call it “done.” Especially with lots more nursery preparation looming on the horizon!

So let’s get down to the nitty gritty…here’s a before and after for you!

It’s definitely come a long way in the last few months!

You can see the original moodboard I started with here. My jumping off point was the shower curtain, which I got from World Market. The first step of the makeover was painting the walls a nice shade of white. Then I broke out of my comfort zone and painted the vanity a fiery shade of coral.

The next big step was putting up the beadboard wallpaper and chair rail. The magazine rack was a HomeGoods find   a while back. I’m also letting it double as a place for guest towels.

The art is one of my favorite parts. I picked up the Swimming Pool sign at a local antique store, and come to find out it’s actually a sign that realtors would use to advertise a home with a swimming pool. I had no clue when I bought it, but my mom is a realtor and when she saw it she immediately recognized it. So it ended up being kind of a sweet little shout out to my momma. Gotta love those happy accidents!

The fish prints were purchased from this Etsy shop, and they’re vintage illustrations from a book about fish. The coral and yellows of the fish coordinated perfectly with the color scheme, and what’s more appropriate under a Swimming Pool sign than pictures of fish?? And for some reason, the fact that they’re all hanging over the toilet cracks me up.  I’m so cheeky.

There were a couple of other DIY’s involved in completing this bathroom makeover, one of them being the towel hook. {Sidenote: I just realized the mason jar on the  towel hook was empty for all of these shots. Bad blogger.} The hand towel was one I ordered from Anthropologie. I also got my rope on and framed out the builder grade mirror in a more unconventional fashion.

I know most makeovers don’t focus on the trash can, but how cute is the lace cutout detailing on this one? Love!

I also love this basket that I ordered at a Thirty-One party. It’s the perfect spot for a couple of towels and an extra roll of toilet paper.

So here’s the breakdown of what I spent for this makeover:

  • Paint: $42
  • Beadboard wallpaper: $16
  • Chair rail trim: $8
  • DIY Towel Hook: $13
  • Rope: $10
  • Magazine rack: $25
  • Art: $18
  • Accessories:$60
  • GRAND TOTAL: $192

I’m thrilled to be able to call this finished for under $200! And just to save your scrolling finger, here’s one more look at the before and after.

    I think you made the perfect decisions by going bold on the vanity & roping the mirror. This bathroom is pretty stellar!
