In-law Suite Bathroom Mini-Makeover


This weekend, we also finished readying our in-law suite for posting on Craig's List. We're thinking the apartment would be great for a young professional or a student. It will be nice to have that extra income for other home improvement projects!

Beyond being cleaner, the apartment mostly looks the same as it did when we purchased the house. We did hang curtains to make the space feel a little more homey.

Most of the updating was in the bathroom. My mom and I picked out a new mirror, light fixtures and hardware. Dan installed a new toilet and over-the-toilet cabinet. I picked out the paint. It's a little darker than I thought it would be — but it still works. Dan and I took turns taping, painting and cursing (at taping and painting — not at each other).

Mirror - $16 (Big Lots), Paint - $22 (Valspar from Lowe's), Hardware - $20 (towel rack, toilet paper holder, hand towel ring - Lowe's), Light fixture - $18 (Lowe's), and light globes - $3/each (Lowe's)

Bathroom before.
