I completed my bathroom project a few steps at a time and ended up finishing under $500.
- To purchase most of the materials for Step 1, I opened a Home Depot credit card to get the discount. They offered 5% off originally but I knew better as I had seen other’s get more off for opening a card. I ended up getting 25% off.
- I got out my pink tools and DIY’d my way around having to pay a contractor (Tutorial to come with bathroom #2’s remodel).
- Paint: Now here’s the cool part. I had a ton of leftover paint from other projects, so I mixed some green, blue, white, and gray together and came up with Kari’s Crystal Castle! My home-made recycled color! I actually fell in love with this color and had Home Depot match it for me and make a few gallons for other areas of my house.
- I waited to redo the floors until I was redoing all of the floors in my house. I’m estimating that the bathroom used 1 box of wood an the underlay an protector. All when in comparison to the rest of the house, should be around $75. The floor is the only part I hired out. There is no way I was about to cut around all of those edges!
