A Simple Change, Inexpensive Room Makeover
I started thinking the other day about the cost of room makeovers. I love to do room change ups, as I refer to them. I posted about my kitchen not to long ago click here for part one, click here for part 2, click here for the final part 3.
There is one room in your home that can be changed rather inexpensively. Your bathroom!
I keep beautiful neutral colored mats and towels in our master bath and then occasionally “change up” the accessories. Don’t scrimp on your mats and towels, you’ll be glad you didn’t. The mats were about $30 each from Bed Bath and Beyond ( I have four, there’s one in the toilet room and one in front of the shower too). Also the towels are from JC Penny and cost about $12 for bath size, $9 for hand towels and $7 for face cloths. I don’t have any before photos. But these photos will give you an idea about how easy it is to make a difference in the space in your home that always gets a lot of visits.
I had this basket in the linen closet holding some face cloths. I bought it from Bed Bath and Beyond a couple of years ago on clearance for about $8
Adding a candle in the bathroom is always nice. I love to soak in a tub with soft music, some bubbles,and the added glow of a candle is so relaxing. Not all of my soaks are relaxing though click here to read . I had the candlestick already. I can’t remember where I bought it. I’ve had it for several years. The candle is from Kohls on sale for $5 and the dancer statue was a gift,from a dear friend and I’ve had it for years too.
I think wood is a great accent in the bathroom. The wood bowls are new from Walmart and only $6 each. I put one on each side of the two sinks. The wood tray also came from Walmart last year it was in the clearance section of the hardware department. I think I paid about $8 .
A little artwork in the bathroom is a plus too. I’ve had this framed Van Gogh poster print of fritillaris in a copper vase for years. It hangs in the toilet room
At the beginning of this post I mentioned the accent towels. You’ve seen them in some of these photos. They were the most expensive purchase for this change up. I love towels with embroidery or pretty details and so you do have to pay more for that. These hand towels were $9 each at Bed Bath and Beyond, I bought 3. Lord how I love that shop…come to think of it, they do have a lot of our money, giggle.
So that’s it my sweet bloggy friends. Sum total of new purchases for this change up $44.
Sending prayers for all of those in Irene’s path
