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. 😉
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 off—BIG TIME. So without further ado, here’s the before & after!
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.
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. 😉
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!
