Happy Superbowl Sunday everyone!
Do you remember waaaay back when I started my master bathroom makeover on a budget? You thought I forgot all about it right? Well, between being pregnant and now taking care of my son full-time I've little or no time to dedicate to major projects. However, I did actually finish this bathroom several months ago and am only now getting around to posting the reveal!
To get the full reveal effect you must of course remember what the little half-bath looked like before:
As you can see above I had to rip out a whole section of drywall in order to get rid of the white tile. My initial plan was to install a wall-mount faucet but unfortunately the wall depth proved insufficient.
In the end in order to save money we decided to continue to use our current sink and countertops. The counter did get a DIY makeover though!
Notice how our counter looks like faux soap stone? Doesn't it look great? Can you believe that I achieved this look with regular ol' CHALKBOARD PAINT! Crazy, right? Yup, I just rolled on 4 coats of chalkboard paint (not even half of a 2oz container!) and sealed it with wipe on poly. What an crazy effective countertop makeover for around $3!
The tile is Carrara Marble baskeweave mosaic (available at Lowes - $11.98 per square foot). The faucet was courtesy of National Builder Supply. It's the Danze Parma centerset. You definitely don't need to switch out faucets to make a big difference though. I think the tile and counters alone make a statement!
The bathroom is painted Reflecting Pool by Behr which I had left over from our Main Bathroom Makeover.
Accessories and shelves all available at Ikea.
So there you have it! The Master Bathroom (let's be honest...master power-room ;-) ) reveal. AND it only cost me the price of the tile! What are your thoughts?
- 5 square ft of tile - $60 plus finishing pieces $20 (Total tile: $80)
- Tiling tools (trowel and sponge - already owned)
- Tile adhesive and grout (leftover from Fireplace Makeover)
- Black chalkboard paint (already owned but expect to pay less than $5)
- Foam rollers (already owned)
- Half gallon of paint (leftover from previous project)
- Note: The faucet was sponsored. While it looks nice, our old one looked pretty decent so it wasn't totally necessary for this makeover!
If you didn't already have tile adhesive and grout, you can expect to add another $25 or so to the total cost.
