Bathroom Makeover on a $100 Budget

This is what the guest bath looked like the day we moved in ...
You can't see it, but there was a TON of faux foliage --
plus BRASS, BRASS & MORE BRASS.
An UGLY light fixture from 1992.
and horrible wood tone.

Livable? Yes. 
Attractive? If you're 90 years old.

So I was DETERMINED to give it a fresh makeover --
for less than $100.00

Obviously the tile is TERRIBLE.
(when was pink tile and brown grout EVER in? ugh!)
but new floor is not in the budget yet - maybe next year!
We're still recovering from our kitchen makeover, haha!

Thankfully the counters are livable.
Fancy? Not a chance.
but at least they are neutral! :) and clean!

So are you ready?
Here's the new guest bathroom!!
 
Ahhh - so fresh and so clean, clean!

This bathroom is SO hard to photograph --
it's our "tornado shelter" because it's in the dead CENTER of the house.
Meaning no windows, no natural light.
So even if the pictures don't do it justice, let's just say --
this room is SOOOOO much better!
We painted the walls a gorgeous light grey.
(Behr Morning Mist)
and gave the door a fun pop of color!
 I made the "wash, brush, floss, flush, repeat" sign.
(anyone interested in a tutorial?)
 Decorating a bathroom is hard for me ... but this little horse made the cut! :)
which is funny because I hate riding horses. :)

 so long ugly wood grain, hellloooooo pretty white!
Oh happy happy day!
P.S. These .49 peel and stick tiles make a HUGE difference under the sink! :)

So let's see how I did ....
Cabinet Paint - $10 oops paint (Benjamin Moore, Navjo White)
Primer (Quart) - $10
Cynthia Rawley, Shower Curtain - $15 (TJMAXX)
Hardware - $10 (from ebay, ordered in bulk for kitchen) 
Artwork & Decorations - shopped around the house! :) I dibn't buy anything new.
Yellow door paint - Leftover from Nelson's dresser
Wall Paint - $0 (already had from kitchen, but would have been $26)
Bath Rug - $7.99 (Garden Ridge)
Light Fixture - $40 (Overstock)
Peel & Stick Tiles - $6 (Lowes)
TOTAL - $99.00

WHOOP WHOOP! I did it! $100!
 
and just because everyone loves a good before and after ...
So what do you think?
Think it was worth $100? :)
