bathroom reno diy.

last week on hello scarlett i promised that i would show our first renovation that *g* and i tackled days after we got little green.

initially, every time i left our bathroom, i felt more dirty than when i entered it.

is that not the opposite function of a bathroom?

i began to brainstorm about how i could get it to look cleaner, and all i could think of was white, white, white. we also did not have much money to spend, and kept in mind that there could not be any major changes.

with $35 towards new lighting, $30 towards paint, $15 towards new switch plates, and a little switcheroo, we had an improved bathroom!

would you like to see the results? just keep on scrolling …

later, we also removed the door to the bathroom and replaced it with a sliding door that we attached with a barn door kit.

i then painted it white and black.

in the end, cleanliness is next to godliness! :-)

  1. Your way of explaining all in this piece of writing is truly good, every one
    be able to easily be aware of it, Thanks a lot.

  2. I’m so glad you somehow found my blog because I have fallen in love with yours! This post made me so happy. When I tell people I’m obsessed with white on white on white with MAYBE a little gray, they look at me like I’m crazy. This proves my point perfectly! Looks great!

    WOW! What a tremendous difference for so little money. Love it!

    • thank you!

      *g* and i are masters of disguise. ;-)

      in all honesty, the color of the paint is a huge factor in the overall feeling of a room.

      it’s astonishing, sometimes.
