Bathroom Reno Update


This is the "Gut and Renovate My Bathroom for $3000 Challenge".  There has really been no progress on the demo/reno itself, but I have been shopping and found some great prices that will help stretch my tiny budget.  Like my new American Standard toilet that was 30% off at Home Depot:


My new Moen bathroom faucet (matches my kitchen faucet) was marked down by $50.  I popped it into place in the new sink for effect :)


 I opted for this sink/vanity combo because it was only  $88 marked down from $129 and I can paint the cabinet and doll it up later on.  I've already put different knobs on it because the original knobs were, well, cheap looking!


So far so good.  Next items to pick up are the lights and bathroom fan so I can get the electrician in to wire them.  As soon as the snow disappears, I will be ripping out the tile floor so that I can get the plumber to rough plumb the sink and toilet.  Then it will be the installation of the ceiling, walls, floor and trim.

Budget                $3000
Spent to date:           640  (capping lines and new fixtures)
Balance                $2360

So happy things are beginning to move on this project!!  To see Part 1 - click HERE

  2. Wow. You're doing great with your budget so far! That is fantastic. Love the new vanity. It's got a pretty, soft line to the bowl part. The new faucet is almost like the one in my upper bathroom. Very chic looking ;)

    Happy Easter!

  7. I've had the same kind of sink&vanity, only white! And one day I painted it mint - so I can't wait to see what yours will look like... in the end! You could also paint the new door knobs with a tiny model when everything else is finished :)

  26. Hi Anne,
    I think that your latest project is off to a great start!
    One of my first thoughts was that it was amazing how quickly a reno budget can be eaten up. You did really well with your vanity, which has to be one of the pricer items in any bathroom. I know because we bought a new vanity not that long ago and I remember how hard it was to find something nice for a reasonable price.
    I'm looking forward to seeing your bathroom progress.
