Thought I would share a picture of our bathroom remodel. This bath has a shower/tub (to the left, behind the door). I basically got a nice rounded shower curtain to give more space in the shower. Because cost is an issue, I spent weeks scouring Craig's List and got a great deal on the set (vanity, faucet, mirror, cabinet). I paid less than $200 for the entire set (brand new, travertine top). I got the toilet brand new for $35 from a kitchen and bath store that lists unclaimed items on CL at a discount. I put in new (vinyl) flooring and did Venetian Plaster on the walls. The last thing was to put in oil rubbed bronze light switch covers, shower curtain, towel rack and toilet paper holder (we also re-wired the plugs/switches with standard boxes).

Basically, the whole remodel cost me about $300! I've been bit-by-bit trying to find bargains then working on the house one project at a time :D My husband was never a DIYer so at first he thought I was crazy. Now he just listens to me when I say I have a new project in mind.

Looks great. Right place, right time for great deals.
