Go Ahead! Paint it Black! | Mysa Home Styling | Interior Design & Styling | Minneapolis Minnesota

If you’re looking to do a budget bathroom renovation, then I’ve got the perfect post for you today! Or if you’re just here to see a black bathroom, I’ve got you covered there too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

A couple of weekends ago we painted our bathroom black. When I tell people that we did this, they always reply with shock and awe that we would paint walls black! Sure, it was a risk, but it was a risk that paid offโ€”BIG TIME. So without further ado, here’s the before & after!

Before

Here’s the before of our bathroom… pretty boring, neutral, and 60’s-looking. There wasn’t anything inherently wrong with it, it just wasn’t exciting. No matter what I put on the walls or counter, it felt flat and dull.

After

And here’s the after! A million times better, right?? It’s amazing what a coat of paint can do! Of course, we also installed a new light fixture and hung that amazing round shelf, but the paint alone made such a huge difference!

I love all the little details that make a space! Candles, plants, and art all help to pull this room together. Pro hostess tip: light a candle in the bathroom before you have people over. Not only does it add a nice ambience, but it also masks any smells that guests might be embarrassed by. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And let’s take one more look, shall we? This just goes to show that you don’t always need to completely gut a space to make drastic improvements. Sometimes all you need is a coat of paint and a few new accessories!

Budget Breakdown:

Paint: $10 for 1 quart from Home Depot (Deep Onyx, Glidden)
Shelf: This one, got for $10 at Goodwill
Light Fixture: $50, Menards
Hola Framed Art: $3 at Salvation Army
Total Cost: $73
