basement bathroom after, finally!

a looong time ago, i posted the basement bathroom before

but, before i could make the big REVEAL,

i had to complete my list:

1. Find a mirror. Purchased at Home Goods for $29.99

2. Sew panel to target shower curtains to add 6" in length and hang to camouflage the shower. Used two curtain panels from Target that were on clearance for $9.88; made bows and pull backs from fabric on hand

3. Find cabinet/shelves to hang above toilet. Used two wall boxes from a thrift store purchased for $2.81 and one piece of wall art purchased at a consignment shop for $8.00

4. Find basket for towels and TP next to the vanity. Still need to find...
5. Hang recently thrifted wall art. Hung circle wall art from Good Will purchased for $4.00

Overall, we painted the walls, replaced the light fixture, replaced the vanity, faucet, and replaced the wall fixtures.  We also replaced the linoleum floor with ceramic tile. Using materials that we already had one hand, discount purchases from Lowe's, thrift store finds, as well as a little DIY tender loving care, we were able to keep the cost around $400. 

We're so excited to have a nice, new bathroom to enjoy our in our basement multi-purpose room and playroom.  Someday, I will post our complete basement pictures as soon as it looks "picture perfect"!

A fresh style. Nice update. The accessories are just enough.

Thanks so much! It's always tough to find that perfect balance of just enough versus too much, you know?

I like the idea of adding a curtain to the sliding shower doors. Very nice update.

Thanks, Kelli! The curtains were my way of "camouflaging" the shower as it is seldom used in our basement.
