Bathroom Breakdown

Our bathroom has had a breakdown. Literally. It is falling apart. From the peeling plastic floor to the cheap cardboard tub surround - it is in need of a serious makeover. BUT...because we are venturing to Australia this summer and have oodles of other home reno projects to complete (re-carpet the second floor, new garage roof, kitchen reno, etc.), we need to do this on the cheap!

Here is a photo of what the bathroom looked like when we moved in, complete with hideous black curtain and animal print bathtub border:

Here is the plan (my first idea board by the way):

We are going with inexpensive subway tiles for the tub surround. We've already painted the walls in two soothing green tones - Behr Olivine and Palm Breeze. The current white toilet and pedestal sink will stay, but might get a new chrome faucet. For the floor we are going with a period black and white hex tile. This is a little pricier (approximately $6 per square foot), but our bathroom is tiny, so it won't cost much. Our hideous light fixture will get replaced with a classic and inexpensive one from the Home Depot. Finally, classic accessories will complete the look - glass jars (Crate & Barrel), a metal waste bin (Target), and framed photos from our honeymoon in Germany and Austria.

Check back to see in-progress photos of this project in a few of weeks!
