Bathroom Makeover Ideas | Making Your Dream Bathroom
It takes a few bathroom makeover ideas to make my dream bathroom come true. But I’m not complaining! I love being hands on when it comes to turning my dream home into a reality. Here are a few of my favorite DIY bathroom ideas:
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 wipe down first. You’ll want all the dirt off before placing the wallpaper in.
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.
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. Don’t forget to place pins in to hold your stencil in place while you paint on the shower curtain.
Tip: Remember to pick a bold-type face when choosing the font for your statement shower curtain.
4. DIY Patterned Bathroom Tiles
Give your bathroom tiles a DIY spin by drawing on a design with a Sharpie pen!
Tip: Don’t worry if you make a mistake. Rubbing alcohol will help right the wrong.
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 by simply painting them. This tutorial paints them in white and features a flower pattern stuck on the can.
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
When cutting tile for a bathroom, you can choose either a handheld tile cutter or a wet saw. I recommend using the former if you’re working with smaller-sized ceramic tiles.
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 2 coats of concrete sealer for this DIY.

This DIY mirrored vanity tray will make any vanity area look more upscale in an instant. The best part is, you can upcycle an old picture frame for this project.
13. Grommet Topped Shower Curtain
Grab a grommet kit when making your grommet topped shower curtain. This kit will come in handy as it includes a setter, anvil, grommets, and washers.
TIP: You can add roman shades curtains for your bathroom windows too.
14. Stain Oak Cabinets
Prep your cabinets by sanding them before applying the stain. Don’t sand too much though. Remember, you only want to rid the cabinets of its varnish.
15. Herringbone Frosted Glass Cabinet Door
This herringbone frosted glass cabinet gives a unique flair to any bathroom. Did you know the secret to getting the pattern right is by simply laying strips of masking tape on the glass?
16. Bathtub Makeover
Give your bathtub a makeover by applying airstone along its sides. Personally, I’m a huge fan of airstone. 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 2 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 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.
