New Bahama Beach Bathroom on a Budget
Want to know how I managed to redecorate and still stay within a strict budget? Read on!
The mirror I got on clearance at Bed, Bath and Beyond for $29 (with tax). The shells on the ledge are part of a mix of shells I bought on clearance at Kohl's for $5. The sea biscuit and sand dollar I picked up and bleached when I was in the Bahamas last summer.
The soap dish was $4 at Big Lots. The Hurricane Jar with the seascape was $5. I got the jar at half price at Hobby Lobby. (Note-depending on the week, Hobby Lobby puts a lot of their decor items on sale at half off...you just have to go the right week)
The free standing picture frames were both on clearance at Kohls and the pictures inside them were ones I took while in the Bahamas. (both frames for $12)
The two picture frames on the wall were half price at Hobby Lobby *again...just have to watch the adds and go on the right week. Frames are normally half off every other week. The pictures were blown up and framed. I got one pic blown up for free using a coupon from Walmart. The other was a deal at CVS for $3.
The hook on the wall was $2.50 at Hobby Lobby (1/2 price that week). The towels I found at Target for $16 total. The baskets were half price at Hobby Lobby totaling $17.50. One basket I just took some wire and nails that I had in the garage and turned it into a wall shelf. The shower curtain, liner and hooks totaled $40 at Kohls. The sandcastle on the toilet is a Party Lite piece and holds a candle. Got it at a garage sale for $5.
The shells on the picture frame are part of the bag that I bought that is mentioned earlier. The bath rug was in my master bath...but as I'm redecorating that, I moved it to this bathroom.
Total purchased to transform my bathroom: $207
