In just a few weeks, we will have owned our home for 9 years. It has been an awesome investment and even though it was a new build, there is just so much left to do to really make it our own. Case in point, our dull, contractors base level, master bathroom. It was time to give this space a facelift and now you need to see the $200 Master Bathroom makeover!
The Original Bathroom
When the husband and I were married, we registered for a new set of bathroom items. Dark browns and blues were the standard, so that is what I decorated in. Moving into our new home, I was 6 months pregnant and high risk at that. Painting was just not an option, so we left everything the flat white horrible contractors paint.
Overtime we painted various areas of our home like the laundry room and kids rooms and even finished our basement and did the 1/2 bath. Slowly but surely, the house is starting to be less contractor base level and more us. However, this bathroom has taunted me. It is huge, it has so many corners and I had a million ideas that I wanted to do.
It was time to just do it. The bathroom needed a facelift and I had a budget of $200. I wanted new paint, new towels and a light an airy feeling when you walked in. I knew I couldn’t afford to redo all the tile, but I decided that I could incorporate the chrome fixtures and white tile nicely with the right color on the walls.
Paint can make or break a room. Before I even picked out decor for the bathroom or towels, I picked out this light aqua color for the walls and wanted a linen white for the trim. This was going to be a massive painting endeavor and I needed something that I knew would help keep the lines between the walls and trim sharp.
I grabbed FrogTape® at our local retailer. I had read really good reviews about this and was hoping that it would stick well and really give me those sharp lines. I used the FrogTape® and taped off all the trim and windows in the bathroom.
The FrogTape® went on so easily and STAYED STUCK! That was huge because I have had issues with other brands coming off shortly after placing it. Not FrogTape®, it truly stayed put and I never had an issue with it pulling up.
We used it on all types of surfaces from the tile to the drywall to the baseboards and even windows and it had no issues adhering to those surfaces. I will say that if you plan to do a paint job where you paint walls and then baseboards, you need to get both the multi-surface FrogTape® and the delicate surface FrogTape®. That way you can place the yellow delicate tape atop the newly painted walls without fears of ruining your wall paint.
It took me several hours to paint this massive bathroom. The color was beautiful but I was still nervous that there would be a ton of touch ups. That was not the case at all, the lines from the FrogTape® were crisp, clean and sharp! Their patented PaintBlock® Technology reacts with the water in the latex paint to form a barrier against paint bleeds.
The Finished Product
I spent just over $200.00 and it was well worth the investment. The bathroom is stunning and is such a breath of fresh air. My husband was not super excited about this undertaking and after seeing it all come together he truly loves it.
The paint and FrogTape® costs were right around $55.00, which included the chalk paint needed for the cabinets. I purchased a paint with primer to do it all in one coat as well. I also purchased a can of spray paint to paint the old towel rack, toilet paper holder and shelf.
The towels and rug were about $45.00. I originally wanted corals and aquas, but my husband talked me into these and they really look phenomenal. I snagged 3 yards of the curtain fabric for just under $12.00 and made the 2 window valances and the storage closet curtain.
The shelf below was an awesome clearance find for $10.00 and the other items were things we had around the house. The dream on canvas print actually ended up being the inspiration behind the bathroom decor and it really turned out amazing.
I spent another 12.oo on the white frames and $20.00 on the metal feathers. I searched pinterest for the watercolor printables and found the feather one and the monogram on the last photo, then I created the “love” printable as well.
My favorite part of the entire bathroom is this faux wood wall! My sister and I found a sheet of this paneling for $20.00 and cut it to fit behind the toilet. It looks incredible and brings a bit of warmth into the room which I adore. The last bit of cash went to new blinds for the windows which I got on an incredible clearance sale and spent $31.00 on!
Total for this incredible bathroom makeover was $205.00! It went to smoothly and honestly I attribute that in part to the FrogTape®. Although there was a ton of painting, there was hardly any touch ups (the few I had were due to the installation of the faux wood, not the tape) and I was able to just tape off the areas and paint quickly without worries of making sure it was perfect. It sure looks perfect though!
