The "Now I Have to Make the Rest of the Bathroom as Nice as the New Faucets" Makeover

The "Now I Have to Make the Rest of the Bathroom as Nice as the New Faucets" Makeover

This spring I won all new Moen fixtures for our bathroom. When it came time to install them, I realized they were too nice for our outdated bathroom, so the makeover began. We didn't have the budget for a remodel, so all the major parts of the bathroom stayed intact. Sometimes a makeover has just as big of an impact as a remodel — for much less money!

Everything in the room was DIY'd from top to bottom! I refinished our oak cabinet with a dark gel stain to give them a modern update, and framed the builder grade mirror with molding in the same dark stain. I sewed a custom shower curtain and a faux Roman shade for the window to work in my navy, chartreuse, teal, and grey color palette. The new fixtures were installed and a new vanity light put in.

The fixtures were free, but the rest of the makeover cost less than $200 to complete.

Wall Paint: Ace Royal – Silver Anniversary
Cabinet Paint: Old Village Paint – Cabinet Makers Blue
Mirror and Cabinet Stain: Minwax Gel Stain – Walnut
Shower Curtain Fabric: Premiere Prints – Feathers
Faux Roman Shade Fabric: Premiere Prints – Ikat Domino
Light Fixture: Patriot Castlefield Vanity with Opal Glass
Fixtures: Moen Ashville collections
