How paint, a new light fixture, and a touch of love can transform a bathroom in a matter of hours.
A few years ago my spouse and I were planning on selling our house and wanted to do some upgrades that were within our budget. This particular upgrade was on the half bathroom located between the master bedroom and laundry room. It originally was a light yellow paint color and the faucet was the only oil-rubbed bronze hardware anywhere. I decided to go with a burnt orange paint color to really bring out the accents in the hardware and chose all oil-rubbed bronze hardware from the light fixture to the soap dispenser; all hardware in this bathroom is oil-rubbed bronze (we even found a nice recessed toilet paper holder for less than $20). All hardware was purchased at our local Menards and all the items were reasonably priced. The décor was purchased at either second hand stores or at the dollar store, and of course I added a touch of style with a few complimentary colors that brought it all together. It's like a fall themed bathroom that was completely transformed for under $100!
