Bathroom Makeover for $35.00

The house we purchased last year was only 3 years old and it had good bones, but the color choices of the previous owners were not our taste.  Because they had kids, they had some interesting color choices in the bedrooms and a crazy color in the guest bath.

The shower tiles were also not my first choice and we hated the floor tile.  What I hated more though, was the thought of pounding up all that tile.  I could live with the shower tile and we have yet to decide what to do with the floor.  For 10 months, we have ignored this room, calling it the ugly bathroom and we left the Caribbean blue paint in place.  This week I could stand it no more, so I decided to paint the bathroom and see if we could live with the rest.

I chose a dark brown paint, called “Mud Puddle” because I wanted to contrast the light tile and the white vanity.  I also thought that would make the floor look better…it didn’t!  So we will still have to take the plunge and change that at some point.  So, for a $35.00 can of paint, this guest bathroom now looks stylish and sophisticated.  Try this transformation on a room you love to hate and enjoy the difference it makes!
