Our guest bath is my new favorite room. I just want to hug it I love it so much. The budget-friendliness of this makeover makes it even better in my book.
Here’s the story of our budget friendly bathroom makeover
The guest bathroom is the only guest bathroom we have. No powder room here so I feel like our guest bathroom, which is used mainly by my daughter, needs to be somewhat polished and inviting for guests. Not just the sleepover kind, but for visitors and friends. The “before” just wasn’t working for the serene space I desired, so it was time for a makeover.
The three major ingredients to this budget makeover were: PAINT, UPDATE, ACCESSORIZE
The “before” really wasn’t so bad. The vanity and cabinet had already been painted white. The beige wall color was tolerable. However, the light and vanity were totally out of date.
My goal for this makeover was to make a big impact with little money. I’m pretty sure we did that.

We replaced fixtures like the light, towel bar, toilet paper holder, cabinet door knobs, and that beautiful mirror.
This mirror. Oh you guys. I found this mirror at a cute shop at the beach last summer. I had it hanging in the dining room at our old house but it’s been sitting in the garage since we bought this house. I had planned on finding something more modern for the space but when I tried this mirror out it just worked perfectly for the coastal vibe I love.
The biggest thing that changed the look of this space was the wall color + adding a wall treatment. I’ve been dreaming of board and batten in the bathroom for years. I think it, in combination of the calming blue green paint color, completely elevates the space.
Paint colors: Behr Ultra Pure White and Sherwin Williams Sea Salt
The last part of the makeover was accessorizing, adding those little touches that make the space pretty and functional. Adding these hooks to the board and batten keep the towels off the floor (hi, I have a three year old!). I bought a bundle of these fluffy white towels from BHG for Walmart (in artic white). Doesn’t his beachy bathroom begs for big white towels? I think so.
I also love to keep a little caddy with towels like these chevron ones.
That’s the super affordable, budget friendly bathroom makeover.

Paint – $40
Wood for Board and Batten – $30
