Beachy Budget Friendly Bathroom Makeover

Thanks to Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart for sponsoring this post. All opinions of super cute and useful bathroom accessories are 100% my own. 

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 However, the light and vanity were totally out of date.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.

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.

Also found at Walmart.com this adorable “things” jar. It’s perfect for cotton balls, q-tips, or even hair ties. I also bought the tooth brush holder in this line.

  3. Chelsea, love your bath redo. Don’t you love Sea Salt? We used it in our living room and master bedroom remodels. Such a great color that changes with light and surrounding colors. So soothing.

    1. Carol – I absolutely love the color. I kind of wish I hadn’t already painted my entire house so I could use it in other spaces!

  4. Chelsea, what a Darling bathroom you’ve created! This is exactly the look I want for my boys/guest bath. Thank you for sharing the paint colors, too ~ so excited to get Sea Salt & create my own new space!!

  6. I love this makeover, and you are right, SO budget friendly!! BUT the changes you made Pack a great big punch! Ehat a great transformation! I love that sea salt color on the walls and I am itching to use thats color somewhere in my home. I thinknit would make a great calming bedroom color too! I have been following your master bath progress, too, and I am getting ready to reply to your question on that polst about DIY tiling…. we did our own bath floor tile, but it was a tiny tiny space great for a first attempt!

    1. Just replied to your email! Yes – sea salt is a great color. I’m considering using it again in the master. I’m on the fence between it and going more light/bright with a shade of white.

  7. Love the vinyl plank flooring! Looking into doing this as well, and I love the colour you chose! Would you mind sharing source details on yours? Thanks!
