Budget and sources: $905 complete guest bathroom makeover!

I shared our powder room makeover with budget and sources yesterday--this one is even more of a transformation!! We made over our guest bathroom with new toilet, tile, vanity, lighting, and more and it turned out so fabulous. The budget was tight on this one, too, read on for more!

(See the video I just made about this bathroom reno here.)

We didn't touch the existing shower/tub unit, which unfortunately is ivory--I've heard you can do a DIY resurfacing with some crazy chemical stuff, might look into that sometime, but for now we just covered it with a white waffle shower curtain and it totally works.

I did this IKEA hack for the vanity and it looks just like I'd hoped. I love ALL of the fixtures we did with it, too!


We worked with Thomas Avenue Ceramics for the tile for this one as well. We used this 2" hex tile. I've never seen it for a reasonable price in-store anywhere, so you definitely need to go online to get this shape and size and Thomas Avenue Ceramics is a great place to do it! They have great customer service and way better prices than the big box stores!

"Before"...

The Budget!


I tried and tried to find a used vanity for this bathroom but in the end went with what we really wanted... the IKEA vanity was the big splurge of both of our small bathroom renos but was still a great price for a 40" wide vanity.

I also got a few items on sale, and found a great deal on a designer faucet since the box had already been opened.

Vanity $354 IKEA (I bought a $25 off coupon on eBay)
Toilet $23 ($98, minus $75 rebate from our water district)
Handles $18
Faucet $87 (one of the used/opened package ones of that product)
Light $60 (similar here if that one sells out)
Mirror $36
TP holder $4 IKEA
Hand towel ring $14
Towel bar $24
Rug $0 thrifted years ago
Shower curtain rod $5 Ross
Mortar $5 (1/3 of what we used on other projects)
Grout $9 (1/2 of what we used for both small bathrooms)
Tile (~35 SF+10%) $238 (provided by Thomas Avenue Ceramics)
Tile board $20
Tile board screws $7 (1/3 of what we used on all three bathrooms)
TOTAL: $905
(Since Thomas Avenue Ceramics provided me the tile, I actually only spent $667)
Not included: baseboards and paint, since we had them anyway for the rest of the house

This bathroom is SO much better than before, all for about $900! Hope you're inspired if you have one to make over, too!

Thanks so much to Thomas Avenue Ceramics for providing the tile for this project! Please check them out if you need tile at a great price and want easy online ordering and free shipping on larger orders!
