Bathroom Mini Makeover: Part 2

Up next on our list of mini makeovers was our powder room; here is the before:

The walls were a light purple color, and while you can't tell in this picture, the mirror had huge black streaks going all down it (not sure what it was). When I posted about our bathroom ideas before, we had intended on doing this one in a latte/chocolate brown color scheme. Unfortunately, that idea didn't pan out; when we got paint chips, we realized that the counter is much more pastel-y than we realized (it almost has a pinkish hue to it) and the latte colors up against it looked horrible. So we changed it up completely and went with a grey-blue color...we loved the way that it turned out!

Here's what we did:
-Painted the walls Behr's Arctic Ocean ($20)
-Ripped out the old mirror with the stains and replaced with the framed mirror, purchased at Kirklands on a super sale! ($42)
-Took out the brassy towel rack & replaced it with silver (kind of free in that it wasn't a new expense; we had bought the towel rack for our old house on sale for $15, but never put it up)
-Hand towel: free, we had it at our old house
-We took down the curtains, not sure if we'll put anything up or not, so it's bare for now
-For decor, I bought a little bowl at Walmart for $2 and filled it with pebbles we collected while on vacation this year

Total cost for makeover: $79

Eventually, we'll swap out the gold faucet fixture and the gold knobs on the cabinets and the makeover will be totally complete!
