Joe KnowsDo you dream of having a luxurious spa-like bathroom but lack the funds for a complete remodel? Luckily for you, there are a few easy, cheap, and quick ways to transform your current bathroom into the luscious oasis of your dreams. Just pick your color scheme, grab a few simple tools, and head to the bathroom for the most inexpensive-yet-comprehensive bathroom DIY ever. 

Replace the Old Mirror 


Replacing the old mirror is an easy and cheap way to offer the whole bathroom a new look. Choose a mirror that looks nice with your new color pattern and decide whether you'd like an ornate one or a simplistic one. Ornate mirrors work best in traditional or olden-style rooms, while modern looks call for a simple design with a modest or absent frame. Measure the area you have to hang the mirror before you buy to assure it will fit and look nice. 

Paint an Accent Wall

Joe, great ideas to spruce up the bathrooms for a change up. Mine, however, needs more than a little change up. The ugly 1960s multiple green jungle print wallpaper is very out dated. Slowly I've been removing the paper and painting the walls eggshell white. Two coats of primer are required to seal up the thirsty drywall before painting the finish coat. It's a tedious job especially when it's the main bathroom that all family members have to use daily. Another hindrance for working on bathrooms is all the fixtures that have to be work around. It just takes time to get the DIY projects done. ***** Have a great DIY bathroom day.
