Master Bathroom Refresh
When we remodeled our house the one thing we didn’t spend a lot of money on was our master bathroom. Unfortunately, the budget ran out and we got a new vanity and sink but the flooring and shower were out of the question in terms of budget. Well it has been driving me CRAZY so I tried to think of things I could do on a budget and got to work. It all started around the stencil I got from Royal Stencil called Funky Fiber, then add some art, a plant, a rug, a mirror and DIY your light fixture and we have a whole new vibe up in here. I will link all the sources below and walk you through what I did.
1.) First step Stenciling
I got my stencil from Royal Stencils. I used the Funky Fibers stencil and I also ordered their stencil paint in gold. It had wonderful reviews and didn’t bleed at all. I had tried wallpaper in this bathroom before but the textured walls and moisture from the bathroom caused it to peel back. This was a perfect solution and I LOVE how it turned out. The stencil kit also comes with a stencil brush that worked really well. A couple of tips are to dab it before applying and then apply it in a circular motion.
2.) Add Art , a plant hanger, and spray paint towel holder black
I wanted a black and gold look so I found art work and my favorite “Just Chill” sign that worked with the stencil. My towel holder was silver so I just used the same spray paint I used on my light fixture and sprayed it black to save money. Last, you know I love my plants so I got a macrame plant hanger and added a faux air plant for texture. Sources are linked below.
3.) DIY Light Fixture
For my light fixture I did a simple fix, it was silver with mercury glass and I wanted a more modern industrial look. So I got to work, I removed the mercury glass first. Then, I spray painted the entire thing black. I wrapped copper foil tape around the part that was showing and got new round light bulbs, I added these later so they aren’t pictured but they made such a difference! The lights I got were from Hope Depot.
4.) Finishing Touches
Last, I added a new mirror for a more modern look and a new rug to cover my flooring. I want to eventually re-tile my floors but like I said, that darn budget. The next best way to cover them is to find a rug that is durable and works well with the bathroom. Ruggable rugs are machine washable woo hoo! The mirror I had before was too large for this space so by adding a smaller mirror with rounded edges it opens up the space and gives it a softer look.
That is about it, I will eventually get new blinds too :) What is your favorite DIY project? I hope you have a wonderful week.
