Thrifty Thursday: Bathroom Reveal

Earlier this week I was lucky enough to guest post over at House of Hepworths!  Allison is fabulous, if you haven't checked out her blog....go now!
I thought the bathroom makeover that I shared on her blog would be fitting for this week's Thrifty Thursday.
So here's how I remodeled my powder bathroom on a tight budget! 
Here is my bathroom now: 

In the short year we've been in our house, this poor bathroom has undergone change after change!  
Here is the latest look it had before the big remodel began:

It was just blah, and it bothered me because this is a room most guests that come over see!  
So I took what little budget I had and went to work!

I painted the walls using Valspar's Wet Cement.  I had used this color for an accent wall in my son's room, and luckily I had enough.  So no cost for the paint!

Then I added chair rail, and my version of faux wainscoating.  This is what ate up most of my budget, but it was well worth it!  The total cost for this (includes wood, adhesive, caulk, and nails) was about $85

I replaced the mirror with this one that I found at Goodwill for $12

 I painted it the same color that I used for the chair railing 
(Valspar's Betsy's Linen, another paint color I already had)

For the decor, I shopped at home!  That's right, I went around my house and tried to think of ways to rearrange certain things to get what I needed for this bathroom!  

The only thing I bought new was the little pitcher/bowl that I got at Goodwill for $4!

So that brings the total cost of my little bathroom remodel to $101! 
 (Ha, I went over budget by $1)

  13. Well, congratulations! Grey is such a hot color right now and I am right there in loving it,too! So striking with an off-white trim! And what I am really impressed with is that you know your way around a miter box! Good for you as those angles are not easy by any means! Applause... applause!!
