This Budget Bathroom Makeover Proves Little Changes Go A Long Way

Bathroom makeovers can be daunting. There's the plumbing you probably want to leave to a pro, that overhead lighting you'll likely have to rewire, and the tile -- back away from the tile.

Granted, that may not leave much in the way of transformation, but sometimes a mini makeover is all you need to create your new favorite room in your house. Here's proof:

  • This is Kelley...
    ...she's a blogger over at A Domestic Life.
  • And this is her cute little house.
  • Inside, her bathroom wasn't quite as charming.
    Though it did have some perks: "It still has the original floor and wall tile – that amazing black and white 1950’s tile you see destroyed, cracked or damaged beyond repair in a lot of houses these days," Kelley writes.
  • So she set out to transform it.
  • But not without hitting a few bumps in the road...
  • ...And making some odd discoveries beyond the walls.
  • In the end, however, this bathroom's true potential shined though.
    And Kelley was able to pull it all off for under $200, she says.

Check out more step-by-step details on Kelley's budget bathroom makeover on her blog A Domestic Life.
