Fix it up Friday: Bathroom Face Lift--Dollar Store Edition

We've lived in our house for a little over a year and I have still yet to do anything with our guest bathroom. Probably because I never go in there. I think I have only taken a shower in there once or twice, because it is just more convenient to use the master bath. Anyway, when I was cleaning it the other day while preparing for some family guests, I thought, wow...what a boring bathroom! Needless to say, this will be my project for today's Fix it up Friday! 
Above is a before picture of our guest bathroom. Pretty boring, nothing special or fun.

 Here is an after shot! Cool signs, a lot of color, and way more fun!

Kenzie and I decided to hit up the local dollar store. For one, the dollar store is awesome, and for two i'm a girl on a budget. Well, at least my husband would sure like me to be. I thought it would be a lot easier for others to be inspired by a budget friendly bathroom update anyway. To start this bathroom redo, I wanted to find some wall artwork. Now, I didn't want to spend much, if any on this part. So I google'd "free bathroom printables" and what do ya know, tons popped up. 
The "owl always love you" printable can be found here.

Once I had the printables it was a lot easier to shop for little matching accents at the dollar store. I tallied up how many and which size frames I needed ($7.00). Other items I picked up were those two white "fresh linen" candles ($2.00). Two sets of yellow flowers ($2.00). Two yellow hand towels ($2.00). A set of three green baskets ($1.00). And a few more baskets for in the closet for organization ($3.00). This project was a lot of fun, and a super cheap bathroom "face lift" for under $20.00!
I hope you enjoyed this fun Fix it up Friday Bathroom redo! If you're feeling inspired, let us know and show us what YOU come up with. Have fun! :)

  8. Hi, Stephanie..sorry this took a few days. I had to dig around in our "junk drawer" to find the paint sample! :) The gray is:
    PPG 517-5 Phoenix Fossil

    We LOVE this color. We ended up doing all our bedrooms and bathrooms this color and our living room is a PPG color as well the shade lighter "Gray Stone".
