Our bathroom was super boring and very basic. We love beach vacations and I wanted our bathroom to have a beach feel without over-kill on seashells and starfish. We didn't want to spend a lot of money so we made simple changes that made a big difference. We painted the walls aqua and our vanity cabinets light gray. We added beadboard ourselves which saved a ton on labor costs. We added a DIY frame to our basic mirror and made our own beachy light fixture with clearance lights and leftover beadboard and wood scraps. I added only a few beach type decorations and that was it. My husband and I both love how it turned out. We also love how much money we saved by doing everything ourselves.
