bathroom budget

surprisingly, our bathroom ended up coming in under budget! that never happens, so i thought that i'd share the breakdown with you. plus i like to have these things to reference later. per usual, we were on a tight budget (even more so since this project just sort of evolved from the original floor project). i was hoping to stay under $1k for the entire half bathroom remodel. and here's how we did:

toilet - kohler brand from lowes = $129
sink - american standard brand from lowes = $84
paint - quart of valspar, let me know if you want the color name and i'll look = $13
lights - alabax ceiling and truman sconce, from school house electric = $255
toilet paper holder - grundtal from ikea = $5
towel hook - blecka from ikea = $5
baseboards - from lowes = $26
mirror - made by us, glass and trim from lowes = $28
faucet - from overstock = $150
hardwood floor - ordered with the rest of our flooring, approx = $30
misc. plumbing parts - lowes, approx. = $25

grand total = $750

you can tell where my priorities are... light fixtures and faucets. we already had the trim paint, stain, poly, supplies to finish door, etc. the only other thing that we've bought for the bathroom is the poster. i saw this poster on door sixteen and followed the link to pop chart lab. i really liked the graphics of this poster and thought it would be a fun addition to the bathroom.

as i mentioned in the last post, i'm still looking for a few other bathroom accessories, but i am happy that the renovation portion is complete and that we were able to stick to our budget.

so what have we been doing since we finished with these two big projects? well, a lot of this:
(that's my spot down at the end between cooper and trevi)

and... we also took a vacation! pictures coming soon...

That is an awesome budget makeover for the half-bath! I agree on the light fixtures and faucets, it is where I'd find myself spending extra money as well!

Pretty puppy!

You did very well with the budget! It helps you could do all the work yourselves!

Good to see you are taking a break and enjoying your lovely home!
