I recently redid my downstairs half bath (basically it's the size of a pantry... because that's what it was once upon a time) and spent less than $30 on it.

The gray paint color is a mix of left over paints from the rest of the house. I spray painted the pipes under my sink and my towel rod with left over oil rubbed bronze spray paint. I spent $23 on a light fixture and some pretty bulbs so I could swap out the fixture I didn't like. The painting is one my husband bought me when we lived in Japan. The first aid box was $2 at a garage sale, purchased on a whim, and stored in the basement for a while. The chalkboard was in my giveaway pile (I want to oil rubbed bronze its silver parts). The mirror was given to me by a friend and replaced the original wavy oval mirror the previous owners hung up.

This is after.

And here's some before pictures. Not good ones... but you get the idea with the fleshy colored walls, dark brown accent wall, modern light fixture that doesn't fit my 90 year old house, and the upside down cabinet that was improperly installed and fell off when I touched it etc.

Oh my, I LOVE it.
The chalkboard looks so amazing. I never would have thought of that.
And the gray color is great too. Now I want my room gray.  Cheesy
