Master Bath Low Budget Makeover
I gave my very outdated master bathroom a new facelift! Here are a few updates you can do to turn your bathroom into a spa without breaking the bank.
The first thing I did was paint over my ugly wall paper! I bought this house over 20 years ago and because the wall paper was plastered to the sheet rock, I knew I was going to have a hard time taking it off. I lived with it for many years until I finally decided that I would just paint over it! I gave the wall a prime coat of white then painted a faux leather look. The faux leather look was achieved by painting the whole wall with a medium beige color then using a brush and rag I lightly rub on a lighter beige color.
Framing the large mirror with crown molding gave the room a beautiful custom look and really helped to warm up the space. I measured and cut crown molding at a 45 degree angle on each end. I painted the molding dark brown before gluing it to the mirror with a wall mirror adhesive.
I traded in my beat-up, click old brass faucets for sleek new oil-rubbed bronze ones that I installed myself.
I sanded, primed and painted my shower frame with an oil-rubbed bronze spray paint. Here are good instructions if you want to do this yourself: Home-Depot-Changing-the-metal-shower-trim-color
I used Good Will finds to decorate my counter and shelves. The candle stands I made from old glass pieces, epoxy and paint. Click here to learn how to made them: DIY-Pier-1-inspired-vase
