Cost to remodel my small bath

Happy Tuesday!!

Today I am going to give you the breakdown cost of my bathroom redo, and where my items were found.
There truly wasn’t a budget set for this redo. My husband was surprised as much as myself that we went all out! As mentioned before all he wanted to do was the flooring as my christmas gift. But with all of my excitement, we kicked it up another notch, as I usually do.

Dollar Store is a great store. I found this rug and a clock for my bathroom there. I never want to spend to much for items such as theses, cause I know that I tend to change my mind often.

I love how the dried plants add so much texture to the bathroom ,with ease. I wish that I had a green thumb, and I have been working on trying to develop one, but it hasn’t kicked in yet, until then, dried and artificial plants, and flowers are my friends.

Can you believe that this shower rod was the 3rd costly item for this redo???
I was shocked and surprised that a shower rod can cost me $40.00!! I purchased it anyway just to see what it is all about and shop around to see if maybe I can purchase one cheaper. I decided to keep it. It is that rounded shower rob that give more elbow room, so it is worth the money.

I just had to have this pitcher, I think it is my favorite item in here, next to the tile floors that is next to the vanity redo, that is next to the hour glass……

This frame was on clearance for $5.00 at Marshalls, it was already this color and perfect. Even though it is the only yellow item in here, I love how well it fit in. I put a picture of my family and I from our 2012 summer shoot. Don’t feel uncomfortable we will stay turned around while you take a rest.

The only thing that I purchased here was the artificial plants, for $1.00 at the dollar store. The greenery was actually a garland that I cut into 4 separate pieces and stuffed into these planters, that I had from my “Can I give myself a green thumb?” days.

The clock is a wall filler,  and a cute one at that. 
The most expensive item for this redo is my oh so beautiful light. So much better than that contractors vanity light, which made me think that the previous owners, didn’t have much time for upgrades. My home was built in 1981 and nothing was ever updated before we moved here.

I have a thing for an hourglass, which is funny because this is my very 1st one. But I have always loved them, since I was a young child. I remember always flipping them over and watching and watching until all the sand filled the bottom and fill it again. Now that I have one, I don’t think that the sand sit still for to long because between myself, daughter and husband, it is forever in motion.

This is shopping in the clearance at it’s best. A simple, cheap, update that can make the world of a difference.

Molding to top off my wallpaper beadboard. The molding has a little edge on top to give me the ability to put small things on it. When I went back to the store to get more, the man that was assisting me informed me that this molding is a brick molding that is suppose to be used for the exterior, ..oh well, I love it here, inside where I can enjoy it more.

The beadboard wallpaper was purchased on clearance also. The rolls were open, I assume from a return, so I was able to purchase one for $5 and another for $6. They are priced at 15.00 a roll!!

Floor n’ Decor is the store that we purchased our tile, as well as the store where my husband and I met. 
There is sentimental value in these floors :)

And there it is a $252.00 bathroom redo!

Items included in the total but not pictures are..
Toilet repair and replace
Cabinet Lining
Shower Lining 

other items that are not mentioned in this breakdown are items that we already had left over from other projects, or just laying around the house.
So don’t be afraid to reuse, and repurpose items that you may think are no longer useful! Until next time…
