Let’s Talk Money!! (Gwen’s Bathroom Budget Breakdown)

I finally had a chance to pull together all of the receipts from Gwen’s master bathroom transformation. Wanna see how much it cost?


Okay, here’s the breakdown:

  • Fabric for shower curtain & valance from Trend Fabrics: $175
  • Shower curtain rod: Free! I used a remnant I had on hand.
  • Shower curtain rings & brackets from Home Depot: $13
  • Paint for walls from Home Depot: $25
  • Paint & supplies for cabinets from Kelly Moore & Home Depot: $30
  • Vanity lights & glass globes from Lowe’s: $145
  • Chandelier from Home Depot: $125
  • Cabinet hardware from Lowe’s: $42
  • Decorative mirrors & picture hanging strips from Home Depot: $82
  • Natural woven shade: $49
  • Accessories: $255
    ——————————-
  • GRAND TOTAL: $941

Not too bad, huh? A completely transformed room for under $1000!!

So what do you think? Is that your idea of budget decorating? Or is it still more than you would spend? If it’s still more than you would spend, I’d love to know what you would do to trim the budget even further. Do tell!!

    I wouldn't spend so much on a shower curtain, other than that it looks reasonable.

    Bernice, keep in mind…that was for a custom shower curtain AND a custom valance.

    I think it is an on target budget and custom costs are worth it in the end because the results show.

    Hmmmm, just don't think I'd pay extra for custom curtains for the bath. Main living area, maybe. But for a room few ever see? Not so much.

    Yes i think the shower curtain was a splurge but they were not paying you for a DIY cheapo room transformation. They wanted a decorator bath and therefore i think the shower curtan along with the rest of the elements were very cost effective. Paying you labor and a fee for coming up with all t would have to be the biggest budget item on this re-do…and worth every penny! 🙂
