I am very happy with how this space turned out. We succeeded in adding storage with the shelving. We created a cohesive look with the kitchen with the wall color (which matches the island) and updating to ORB fixtures (like the kitchen knobs and lights). And we made it prettier!

And, just for fun, here is a picture of how it looked before we had the flooring run in here (in February) and the ceilings re-drywalled (in October).

Half Bathroom Before - Charleston Crafted

Here was my rough budget going into this project. It was based on rough estimates and guesses, knowing that the shelving would be the majority of my cash.

High Level Budget Breakdown:

  • Wall paint: $20
  • Shelving: $40
  • Art: $10
  • Mirror: $10
  • Incidentals $10

Actual Spending Breakdown:

  • Wall Paint (1qt) $12.18
    • Painting supplies: had on hand
  • Light fixture $9.96
    • ORB spray paint: had on hand
    • Glass light shades: $9.96 (total for 2)
  • Hardware $0
    • Towel ring: had on hand (3 more in my Etsy shop!)
    • Toilet paper ring: used existing
    • ORB spray paint: had on hand
    • ORB faucet: left in garage by previous owners
  • Shelving materials $25.70
    • Board: $12.50 (1×6″ 6′ board)
    • Stain + staining supplies: had on hand
    • Rope: $8  via Lowes (1/2″ 50′)
    • Cleats: $2.60 each x2 total $5.20 via Lowes
  • Mirror $8
    • Mirror: had on hand
    • Rope for mirror: $8 via Lowes (1/2″ 50′)
    • Hot glue + gun: had on hand
  • Art $6
    • Canvases: 2/$6 via Michaels sale
    • Paint + brushes: had on hand
  • Crown Molding $24
    • Crown: $96 for an 8 pack of 12′ boards. Used 19′ so 2 boards = $24
    • Nails, caulk, paint: had on hand
  • TOTAL $ 85.84

So I know that it looks like I used a lot of stuff that I already had, but I did come $14.16 under budget so that would help cover some of those costs.

I really actually enjoyed being on a budget for this project. Of course, it made it more guilt-free to be doing another makeover knowing that it was on a small budget. However, it was also really fun. I normally probably would have bought new fixtures & a light, but the challenge encouraged me to use an old can of spray paint. It encouraged me to dig through my stash for accessories and I am so glad that I did.

Don't feel guilty using things you already had to stay on budget... if I didn't do that - I'd go over budget each time haha :) Great transformation!

This transformation is incredible! What a difference! I love that this challenge makes us think outside the box and use things we already have. I'm just like you. If I didn't have a tight budget, I'd just buy new stuff. Instead, we make it work with what we have. You did amazing with your bathroom... and under budget!
