Bathroom Makeovers That Don’t Cost An Arm And A Leg

Bathroom Makeovers Under $100

In ten seconds or less, answer this question; Which two rooms are most important to prospective buyers when you are trying to sell your home?

If you said pantry, try again.

If you said formal dining room, nope you are mistaken.

But, if your answer was kitchens and bathrooms, then give yourself a pat on the back because clearly, you’ve been paying attention while watching HGTV.

Everyone knows that kitchens and bathrooms sell a home. However, they also cost the most to update.

What if you only had one hundred dollars to spend?  Would you, could you makeover your bathroom?

I realize I just sounded like Dr. Seuss there.:)

Don’t get me wrong, I realize you probably can’t replace the tile or add some crazy spa like shower using only $100, but you might be surprised just how far you can stretch your budget if you are willing to roll up your sleeves and get to work.

That’s exactly what I did last month.  For two very long weeks, I worked in my master bathroom. You can read all about it here in cased you missed it.

I’m still in love with the ruffled drop cloth curtains I made that were inspired by Pottery Barn. Their version had a $99 price tag. I spent $20.

Not everything in the room turned out exactly how I planned, but that’s just how the DIY life goes.

Bathroom makeovers don't have to cost an arm and a leg. If you need ideas on how to stretch your budget, then look no further.

Enough About Me

Now that you are all caught up on the details of my $100 Master Bathroom Makeover allow me to show you some really fantastical bathroom makeovers from a few of my closest DIY friends.

All you need to do is click on the links beneath each photo to get all the details for each makeover.


Up first, is this farmhouse style powder room. Yes, you can add shiplap for under $100. That towel holder is absolutely brilliant.


My girl Kimm (with two mms) has some pretty amazing ideas on how to add big style on a small budget.


This backsplash idea is extremely clever, and I love that clock.


Shiplap doesn’t always have to be painted, using stain added so much warmth and texture to this master bathroom.


Budget friendly plywood was used to create a shiplap-look in this basement bathroom makeover.


Board and batten is a timeless look that instantly adds architectural interest to any space. This vanity has also been completely transformed into a work of art.


Light, bright, and airy are the three words that best describe this makeover. One Mile Home Style also has a printable project list to help keep you on track. Smart!


This final makeover proves two things; you can update a rental and have a super cute kids bathroom. Can you believe this is a faux marble countertop?


5 Plus 3 Equals 8

I've rounded up 8 great bathroom makeovers and they are all under $100!

If you are new around here, every third Wednesday of the month I co-host a little get together known as the Favorite 5s party. I was supposed to only share five favorite bathroom makeovers but…I just couldn’t narrow it down.

Hopefully, Chatham Hill on the Lake and The Harper House won’t mind.

If seeing is believing, then I hope you leave here feeling inspired by these creative makeovers.

    Uh, yes, I was counting…but I almost always share more than 5. And so glad you did! What great improvements. I love your wire basket with soaps and the peak at the ruffle with the softly sheered edge? Brilliant! I am headed over to see your bath.
