Do you love to watch all the TV shows and pour over magazines and wonder how you would get a room looking like that on a budget? You might even be in a rental apartment or house like me where you can’t paint the walls or make structural changes! How do you achieve that look? You are in the right place! I am going to do a rental bathroom makeover with minimal nails and screws in the wall. Plus, it is all going to be temporary and easily removable. It is also my kids bathroom – which means I get to do my favorite thing – add color!
First let’s talk budget – its a whopping $100! Yes! And I am not the only one… 12 of my blogging friends are taking part in this $100 room makeover challenge. We call it “Champagne rooms on a Kool Aid budget” 😉 On September 30th, you will get to see how 12 rooms are transformed on a $100 budget.
Let’s get started with a tour of the kids bathroom!
The Rental Kids Bathroom decor today –
It is like a long hallway with doors on two ends. It is pretty plain too. The earlier tenants left that shower curtain and I think it is pretty cute, so I just left it on (after washing it of course). I threw a red bath mat which has a twin in a different bathroom and let it be. Everything else is pretty basic and from the 60’s. Like this yellow counter top –
Or the pretty pink blinds and that light-
And this towel bar which is dented from being behind one of the doors.
My plan for the kids bathroom makeover
- Frame the mirror.
- Change out the light – create a shade that attaches to the existing light.
- The towel bar issue – take it off and create a shelf and hooks to hang the towels
- The counter – cover with contact paper.
- Create a cornice for the window.
- Organize all the toiletries.
- New bath mats – something fun and colorful.
- Some cute art.
- Knobs for the cabinets
