Complete DIY Master Bathroom Remodel!!!

Complete DIY Master Bathroom Remodel 

Hi, I'm Ronda from Batchelors Way.  
I'm so honored to be guest posting on Remodelacholic.  

I'm a stay at home mom to six talented and cute kids.  
They range from 6 to 16.  
They keep me busy.  But I still find time to do what I love and that's design and decorate.  
I have always seem to have a limited budget. 
(Don't we all?)  
So I love to use my creative juices and find ways to do things for less, way less! 

 My most recent project was our master bathroom for around $1200.  
Here is the 

And the 

We added a light over the tub.

Cut into the wall and built our own Medicine cabinet from scratch.

We even cut old used mirrors to put in the medicine cabinet doors!  
I said I was cheap!

We added architectural details like bead board, and trimming out the window.

All the trim below we used above our bathroom window
 It's all used materials from the Restore.

We ripped up the old floor and tiled.

We found these used doors at the Restore, stripped them, sanded them, and fixed them up.

Added some great used knobs and legs.

Built our own custom cabinet.

Here's the final product.  
Bye, bye blue doors.

I love the details.  
But again almost everything I accessorize with is second hand.

That's how it all turned out. 
 Thanks Cassity for letting me show your viewers my bathroom!

My husband and I want to build a custom home in the next year or two and this is exactly what we want our master bath to look like. I can't believe you only spent $1,200!!! I love how you made a home for your scale, genius!

I read $1200 and I had to scroll up and down 5 times because I was positive you were lying.

Teresa April 12, 2011 at 8:51 AM  

Wowzers!!! You did an amazing job. I LOVE the mirror and the little space for the scale was just inspired. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

This is gorgeous. My favorite part has to be that vanity and the custom medicine cabinets above it.

Rachel April 12, 2011 at 11:45 AM  

I'm amazed. This is just awesome! I'm getting ready to do a semi-remodel in our bathroom and hoping to recycle/upcycle too. This is such an inspiration! ~Rachel @ The Olde Farmhouse

I know whose vanity and vanity mirror I'm going to copy when we finally get around to remodeling. It looks fantastic.

Rosalie April 12, 2011 at 7:06 PM  

Wow! Now I'm wanting to remodel BOTH bathrooms in my house, and my house is only 6 years old! You did a beautiful job. Definitely saving this post to my favorites for future reference.

Katie April 12, 2011 at 8:52 PM  

Holy Moly! That is so beautiful! I'm very impressed with your ability to salvage and re-use/recycle. It gives one a warm-fuzzy feeling to know that somethings can be reused and not end up filling a land-mine! Thank you for sharing this gorgeous and inspiring project!!!

Shelley April 12, 2011 at 9:08 PM

Katie April 12, 2011 at 10:41 PM  

did you sew corners onto the backs of all your towels? I love how they are hung.

Kat from California April 13, 2011 at 2:40 AM  

All I can say whoa! and wow! First of all the size of the bathroom is wonderful. The craftsmanship on the doors, mirrors, cabinets and everything is amazing. I especially love the scale cubby hole.

Stunning! Really just an amazing job on everything!! Good job! :)


Dre April 13, 2011 at 3:10 PM  

B-E-A-U-Tiful! GORGEOUS! TRANQUIL! SPA-LIKE! What color did you use on the walls? It's perfect!

Amanda Batchelor April 14, 2011 at 10:39 AM  

You did a beautiful job, Ronda. You have always been so creative and thrifty. Just so lucky to call you sister-in-law!

Ronda Batchelor April 14, 2011 at 11:27 AM  

Katie, I sewed ribbon loops on my big towels like in this post
and just folded the hand towels in half like a triangle and sewed a small straight line about 1 inch long and one inch down from the corner.

Your bathroom is EXACTLY what I want. Seeing what you did has totally inspired me to make some changes for my "ideas" for our bathroom redo, which is on the to-do list. And, I have to say, that my husband is rather happy with my new "ideas", ex. will save him a ton of work! Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
