(Welcome to Bathroom Month! We're taking inspiring bathroom submissions from our readers and giving gifts in return. Join us. All info is here.) Welcome to Splatgirl! Hello! I would love to share my bathroom. I designed and DIY'd this room from scratch. It includes a poured concrete Japanese soaking tub, concrete countertops and a 9 1/2 foot tall tile mosaic shower wall. It has his and hers vanities and a double shower with ceiling mount rain heads... As far as bathrooms go, it was done very inexpensively and incorporates some ideas that I think are useful and fun whether one is on a budget or not. (I think I spent about 3K total on the room.) From the $48 sconces that look super high-end to the shower that I tiled in basic 4 1/4" white ceramic and blue glass gobs purchased in bulk to the marine vinyl used as partitions instead of expensive tempered glass panels, I think it's a testament to what you can do with a limited budget and some creativity (and a lot of hard work!).
