So, as you may know. I've been wanting to do board and batten in my entry way and front room for awhile now. I finally got all the supplies, but when it came down to it, I started getting a little anxiety about how it was going to turn out. It was my first time, and it was in the most important place of my house. The first place guests see and sometimes the only place guests see. So I decided to try it out in my upstairs bathroom first. Ya' know, just to make sure :) And mainly cuz the hubs was having more anxiety about it than me. haha.
Anyway. So I really never had any plans to redo this bathroom. I never really liked it, but no one ever used it so it didn't matter too much to me. So this was like on a whim makeover :) Those are sometimes the best though. Mostly because I didn't have anything planned for it or money stashed away to do it, I had to find a way to make it work on a very limited budget.

You can see the post about it here.
And a little clear storage in the form of glass containers.
This whole makeover came in at $60. Here's the breakdown:
$11 - board and batten
$24 - Shower curtain and liner
$5 - Glass containers (2 of them on sale at Hobby Lobby, the other I already had on hand)
$4 - DIY Mirror Frame
$6 - Picture Frames (Ikea)
$3 - Wash clothes (the other towels I already had on hand)
$7 - Soap dispenser from Ikea to match the glass containers.
Everything else, I had on hand.
Grand Total of $60
Here's the before and after again:
But on a good note, the board and batten was a success! The hubs has approved it for the entry way and front room...and so have I :) I think I might make a few tweaks, but we'll see if that happens or not. I'm super excited for it! I just wish I could blink and have it all already painted for me :) haha. One can wish, can't she?
