Bathroom Redo on a Budget: Plans & Inspiration

This weekend was tax free weekend here in Massachusetts, so we took full advantage of it. Or, should I say my parents took full advantage of it- their wedding gift to us was new bathroom fixtures. Woo hoo!

Here’s what we purchased:

That’s right friends, we’ll be doing TWO  budget bathroom makeovers over the next few months. Today let’s talk about the full bath upstairs, which is the main one we use. I want things to be white, white, white but also dramatic. So in addition to the new vanity and sink, I’ve got some other things in mind too.

Here’s a reminder of what it looks like now:

Also, note that blowing out the light source has made the tile look lovely. I promise it isn't- it's discolored, chipped, and poorly laid.

  4. ooh! exciting! the aqua hint might be my favorite part so far. Is your tax free weekend on everything?! we just have school supply tax free weekend here, even though Georgians are supposed to be the ones who hate taxes the most. All I know is my Suffolk County property taxes included garbage pickup, and I have to pay for it separately here. Do you hear that, Georgia?!
