Budget Master Bathroom Remodel: An Update

Well, it's been over a year since Sexy Nerd first started knocking down walls, and our bathroom renovation still isn't done. It's close though, and the entire project (including the master bedroom) has only cost about $5,000. We just need to do a little grouting, buy some towels and artwork, and our bathroom will be finished!

Sexy Nerd did EVERYTHING himself. He even built the vanity, countertop included, from scratch!

Note: It is very difficult to take a good photo inside a bathroom!

Before (yuck!)

 After!

We originally painted the walls light blue, but green looks much better! We used Olympic Bayou Shade in satin.

 
Maybe after Sexy Nerd hangs my mirror, he can hang this artwork.

  20. You would never know that was the same bathroom! You guys have done a lot of work. Unfortunately, DIY remodels seldom go as quickly as hoped.

    Thanks for linking to the party. I'll be featuring you tonight.
