Hello, hello. Welcome back to the $100 Room Makeover challenge hosted by Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry week 3! Participating bloggers have all month to transform a space with a restricted budget and I’m taking on our rental bathroom. This week I’m sharing 3 renter friendly DIYs to add personality to a rental bathroom.
3 Renter Friendly DIYs for the Bathroom
DIY #1: “Wallpapered” shelves
Last week I shared our pretty new bathroom vanity from the landlord and I’ve enjoyed giving it some personality. First the open vanity shelves had stickers and shelf notches that I wanted to cover. I decided to add a floral print with leftover origami paper and command strips.
DIY #2: Stick on tiles
The oh so amazing 100 yen store here has just about everything including the bathroom rugs I mentioned last week and 3D stick on tiles.
I lined 3 sets of them up right above the sink and used the 4th for a Moroccan inspired tray for The Global Styler.
Tip: Use fingernail polish remover and toothpaste (or baking soda) to remove sticky residue or glue left over from tiles when it’s time to take them off.
I really love all the Mediterranean blue and white in the space.
DIY #3: Storage with painted baskets
The baskets I bought for the bamboo shelf were the perfect size to use as “drawers” but were plain. I used chalk paint I had on hand to paint a stripe on each basket and them embellished it with a sharpie marker.
I can’t wait to show you the completed space next week. I just need to do a little more styling!
