Shared Bathroom Design | The Big Reveal

   It's the final week of the March $100 Room Challenge and I am so in love with this room!

          We started with a bathroom shared by our two girls, a pre-teen and a teenager. The space was disjointed and mismatched, and didn't feel young or happy or pretty. As a result, there was no motivation to keep it clean and organized. Need a reminder of what it looked like before? This shared bathroom has an individual sink/cabinet area on each end, with a shared shower and toilet in the middle, so each girl has her own sink.

          With input from the girls, and a beachy family vacation picture for inspiration, we created a design board and outlined a budget of $100.

          I exceeded the budget by $17. I feel guilty for exceeding the budget, but also ecstatic about what was accomplished for only $117! The majority of the projects were completed, but some things were crossed off the list due to budget or practicality. The painted floor design scared me, with the possibility of selling the house in a year or two. Framing the mirrors didn't happen because the lights are installed so close to the mirror, leaving little room for the frame.

Natalie's side before and after:

We installed shelves over the toilet, and I don't know they survived 2+ years without that storage. 

          This dark tunnel is the birthplace of bad photography and grainy pictures.

The budget breaks down like this:
  • cabinet paint - leftover Annie Sloan Graphite
  • wall paint - leftover BM Annapolis Gray 
  • shower curtain - $20 (Target)
  • towel rings - $20 ($10/each; Hobby Lobby)
  • accent rugs - $30 ($15/each; Target) 
  • beach print - $12 (Snapfish)
  • shelves - leftover wood and paint
  • frames around mirrors
  • board with towel hooks - leftover wood and paint / hardware $8 for a 6-pack
  • turquoise cabinet hardware - $20
  • frame for beach print - $7
