Here is my bathroom at it’s absolute best. About 2 weeks ago.
I have been working at remodeling it…on a serious budget.
Bathrooms are gross and stinky.
And just eat away at the cash when you try to give them a makeover.
But, we found some ways to freshen and revive this bathroom for cheap!
And when I say cheap…cheap!!
Okay, first up for me was the tile.
It was in great shape and it seemed foolish to pull it down and put up new.
But…I really, really, didn’t like it.
It just wasn’t jiving with what I wanted to see while sitting on the pot.
So..I painted it.
Yes, it worked.
Yes, it was easy.
Yes, it was cheap.
About $25.00! And not even really that because I used the same white paint I used for the sink (which you can see if you click HERE)…
Here is a before. The tile is a beigey color…generic.
And frankly, a bit dirty looking.
I painted it white white.
And added a border of charcoal on the top 2 rows.
Here are the paints I used…
That refinishing paint is stinky, stinky.
And has a time limit that is has to be used in.
But man…it works!
I used a basic craft paint for those top 2 rows.
I plan to throw a coat of clear sealer on top of it.
But, I also bought several extra containers for touch-ups.
This tile is so low-traffic that I can’t imagine it will need a lot of touch-ups.
So far…it’s holding up ridiculously well!!
I’ll keep you updated though!
Okay, here’s another picture…
Pretty darn impressive…right!!
A difference is made already just from painting tile!
So far our bathroom cash machine is ringing up at…
Not bad…not bad at all!
Stay tuned while I tackle our nasty vanity, walls, ceiling, and towel holder.
You don’t want to miss the gory details!

P.S. A great way to stay update is via Facebook, Twitter, and E-mail.
I’m even on Pinterest and Google+…I know, social media maven—that’s me!
