Before and After: Modest Guest Bathroom Update

Before and After: My Modest Guest Bath Update

I've been bitten by the remodeling bug. After redoing my guestroom, I couldn't leave the guest bathroom to sit sad and untouched. Inspired by my beach-themed watercolor painting and Pottery Barn's coral collection, I stocked up on some sea life items and brightened up the bathing spot. In just a few hours, I pumped a little personality into a rather plain room that will hopefully have my family and friends feeling right at home.

Come check out the modest update that cost me less than $65.

With my watercolor anchoring the bathroom décor, I chose simple and inexpensive beachy accents to breathe life into the dim room. For starters, I replaced the drab white shower curtain with a lively shell and coral covered one. Instead of a white bathmat, I slipped an Ikea sky blue loop rug down to add some punch. Lacking cabinets or shelving, I took an old flea market find and spray-painted it white. The refreshed table now holds towels, candles, and baskets full of toiletries. I installed a very basic white shelf to hold a little vignette full of dainty fixtures — a hurricane jar full of sea shells, a few coral candles, a pitcher full of flowers, and a pink frame. While no major changes were made, it shows how easy it is to transform a rather dull room into one with charm with a few simple steps and even fewer purchases!

Awesome job! Quick question, I noticed that table with the towels on it has shelves on the bottom for baskets. I love that! Did your table come with that, or did you add the shelves? And how did you do that, it you did?

Amazing! Love how you pulled off a seashell motif without resorting to tired blues, tropical fish, etc.
