Yes I know the bathroom before was pretty awesome, well awesome if it was 1989! We knew we had to do something but as always didn’t have a ton of money to spend. My secret, its about mixing it up. I always splurge on hardware, fixtures and countertops.

I saved money by using materials that did not have to be specially ordered, painting existing cabinets and decorating from budget friendly stores like Target and the clearance section at Pottery Barn and Restoration Hardware. My rule is usually, don’t buy it unless its on sale!

Another tip to make it seem like you spent alot of money on your bathroom is to buy expensive soaps from speciality stores and put them in your budget friendly silver tray you picked up at the antique store!

In the end a room is the same as getting dressed, you don’t have to spend alot of money on your black t-shirt but throw in some great accessories and your outfit will look like a million bucks. With clothes and with your home I think its all about the bling!
