Half-Bath Reveal

Finally after a couple months, our ‘weekend’ project is finally ready to reveal!  It was hard to take decent pictures in such a small space, but I wanted to make sure I shared the final results with all of you.  Without further ado, here is our completed half-bathroom remodel:

There it is!  The only piece we are still missing is a picture or two for the wall, but I haven’t found anything I love yet and I do not want to settle on something that is just okay.  I also am going to make a Mason Jar soap pump to sit on the countertop.  As you can see, we made subtle and cost-effective changes, but I really think they made a world of difference.  A few of the biggest changes we made was painting the walls all Behr Linen White, painted the countertop using a restoration kit, created a rustic look on the cabinets using steel wool, spray painted the existing light fixture a stainless steel color, and purchased all new accessories from Home Goods.  I didn’t keep a tab of the total cost transformation, but it couldn’t have been much more than $300-$400 in total since we kept a lot of the large pieces like the vanity, toilet, and sink.  Big changes on a small budget is what we were shooting for and I think we met our goal well!

Talk to Me!

  • What room in your house are you wanting to remodel?  Or, what room have you recently remodeled?
  • Do you prefer to purchase fix-it-up homes that need a little TLC, or fully finished ones completed by the previous owner?

      Ha ha I would love too! Then we could go for coffee as well and I could meet (soon!) baby Addison as well! 🙂

  3. That looks SO good! I love the distressed look on the cabinet, and the mirror is fabulous! 🙂

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      Thank you! I was very particular about the kind of mirror I really wanted because it had to be a) lightwashed b) rustic and c) fit in its proper space lol! Luckily Home Goods is always a winner!

  4. Very cute!

  5. It looks great!

    My husband and I bought new construction, but it was a model home so we didn’t select any of the finishes. It’s nice because there are plenty of things we want to do/change, but nothing was immediate since it’s brand new!

    • HappyWifeHealthyLife says:

      That is awesome! Our house wasn’t in ‘bad’ shape and was move in ready, but like you I definitely have things on my list I want to change just because they aren’t exactly our style… a little at a time though! 😉


  1. […] Our house will probably never be completed (by my standards at least!), but we have done quite a few things including the kitchen, laundry room and downstairs half-bathroom! […]
