Bathroom Makeover Ideas | Making Your Dream Bathroom
1. Medicine Cabinet Makeover
This medicine cabinet makeover makes use of a peel-and-stick-wallpaper as a background — something completely ingenious, in my opinion. Don’t forget to give your cabinet a wipedown first. You’ll want all the dirt off before placing the wallpaper on.
2. Pallet Wood Bathroom Shaving Shelf
Dave loves his bathroom shaving shelf. To be honest, sometimes I think he spends an extra 5 minutes in the bathroom just admiring it. This shelf will not only provide more space, but it also gives your bathroom design a rustic appeal.
Dave’s tip: You’ll be needing 6 wooden pieces of the same size. These will make the main frame of the shelf.
3. Statement Shower Curtain
Start off your morning with a motivating quote from Beyonce herself. Don’t forget to place pins in to hold your stencil in place while you paint the shower curtain. This the perfect addition to your shower makeovers.
Tip: Remember to pick a bold-type face when choosing the font for your statement shower curtain.
4. DIY Patterned Bathroom Tiles
5. Spray Painted Door Knob
6. Bathtub Shelf
This DIY bathtub shelf has turned bath time into a more luxurious activity. Begin by measuring the size of your tub to get the appropriate measurements for your wood. Before I forget, remember to cut an extra 2 pieces of wood to place at the bottom for support.
7. Towel Storage
Would you believe this towel storage hack makes use of recycled tin cans? The secret to making them look chic is simply painting them. This tutorial paints them white and features a flower pattern stuck on the can.
8. Horizon Mirror
This horizon mirror looks like it’s floating. But really, the secret is, it’s simply hanging from a few hidden dowels. Don’t forget to finish off the wooden pieces with a coat of polyurethane finish before assembling the parts together.
Tip: The bigger the cutout, the lower your mirror will sit.
9. Tile And Grout A Bathroom
10. Rag Rug
The main pieces to making this rag rug are a towel and pieces of your choice of fabric.
Tip: You can also cut up old clothes to turn this into an upcycling project.
11. Concrete Countertop With Sink
This concrete countertop gives a more industrial feel to a bathroom — perfect for a bachelor’s pad. By the way, its gray color would look great over a dark-stained dresser.
Dave’s tip: Use two coats of concrete sealer for this DIY.
12. Mirrored Vanity Tray
13. Grommet Topped Shower Curtain
TIP: You can add roman shades for your bathroom windows too.
14. Stain Oak Cabinets
15. Herringbone Frosted Glass Cabinet Door
16. Bathtub Makeover
Give your bathtub a makeover by applying airstones along its sides. Personally, I’m a huge fan of airstones. Not only is it lightweight and environmental-friendly, but it’s pretty affordable too!
Tip: If you need to cut the airstone, a simple hacksaw will do the job.
17. Spray Paint Bathroom Cabinets
Your bathroom cabinets will have a new look once they’re spray painted. By the way, save yourself the trouble and apply a primer on your cabinets before spraying on the paint.
18. Towel Rack and Shelf
This towel rack and shelf would be a great addition to a minimalist bathroom. If you’re worried about accidentally running into the edges of the shelf, a simple solution would be to angle and sand the cornered edges.
Tip: Want to change the color of your braces? No worries! Simply spray some paint on them.
19. Pebble Shower Floor
Avoid nasty slips by adding texture to your floor, just like this pebble shower DIY. If you’re wondering where to buy the pebble stones, take a trip to the nearest dollar store. They should have bags of them sitting on the shelves.
Dave’s tip: Let the grout cure for at least two days before applying the sealant.
20. Mason Jar Organizer
These mason jar organizers will hold anything from cotton swabs to makeup brushes. Just don’t forget to tighten the clamps to prevent the mason jars from from falling.
21. Tiled Mirror Frame
Upgrade your boring and drab mirror with a tiled frame. Start by sanding the edges of the mirror. Remember to only sand the parts where you’d be laying the tiles. Doing so will add a bit of texture and resistance to prevent the glue from sliding off.
Dave’s tip: Stay away from sanded grout if you’re using glass tile — unsanded grout will work best.
I sure hope these bathroom makeover ideas get you a step closer to fulfilling your bathroom goals! I’m certain that if you find yourself getting more crafty and handy by the week, you’ll get your dream home in no time!
