Before & After: Amazing Bathroom Facelift for Under $200

Before & After: Amazing Bathroom Facelift for Under $200

I'm always amazed at what people can accomplish over a weekend. I'm definitely ambitious with home projects — but quick I am not! Not only did this bathroom get a mega facelift, it was pulled off for under $200 … and wait till you see what they came up with for the accent wall!

Cathy knew her bathroom was in dire need of a complete remodel but wanted a quick fix until she got around to it. The outdated oak cabinets were primed and painted a semi-gloss black, while sleek chrome hardware was added to update the basic cabinetry. While this alone would have been a drastic improvement, my eyes are immediately drawn to the paneled wall. By simply gluing and nailing MDF boards to one wall (by her handy and accommodating husband!), they achieved the look of fancy paneling on what was otherwise a boring plain wall. The two towel hooks and cool white paint completes the coastal cottage look they were trying to achieve, but also brightens up the windowless space.
