This simple bathroom remodel is the first real, finished project in our new house. It feels so good to have one room looking put together. Follow along to see our progress!
This simple bathroom remodel was a really simple (have I mentioned it was simple?) way to upgrade our main floor bath without a big budget or spending a lot of time.

Before – Simple Bathroom Remodel Ideas on a Budget
Thanks for checking out our budget friendly farmhouse bathroom makeover. While this isn’t a true before photo, it’s definitely before the majority of the progress that was made in this space. For some reason I can’t find a true “before” photo, but really it’s this photo plus a builder grade pedestal sink. Nothing fancy… It was quite boring, actually. It needed some major character.
After – Simple Bathroom Remodel Ideas on a Budget
The “after” of this space feels like a drastic difference to me, but it really didn’t cost me much and it really didn’t take much time. I got this vanity cabinet and vintage sink from our local Habitat for Humanity ReStore in order to create my own vanity. I ordered this faucet to complete this project. There were definitely moments where I was unsure of how this vanity would look all put together, but I’m super happy with how it turned out.
New lighting can change a space drastically without a ton of time or effort. We replaced our builder grade light with this modern farmhouse style light and we’re really happy with it. It instantly updated the space. You can see a round up of some of my favorite Affordable and Stylish Lighting from Amazon here.
It’s all in the Details
Details are so important. It’s sometimes the little things that add the most character and charm. This accordion rack is a perfect example of that. It adds some excitement while still feeling rather minimal. Whether it’s functional or not, it doesn’t really matter. Sometimes I use them in a space for coats and purses, and other times I use them like this. Not for function, but really just to add some cuteness to a space by hanging a few pretty items on it.
While this isn’t a big thing, we replaced the toilet paper holder with something that matched the faucet. I was looking for something black and more modern and I found exactly that for about $10. You can find that here. The light fixture can be found here.

Thanks so much for following along! You’ll notice in this post that it really doesn’t have to be hard or expensive to give your bathroom a little remodel. With this project, we basically used paint, a few thrifted finds combined with a few things we already had and there you have it. I hope this shows you how attainable it is to upgrade your space with limited time and money. As always, pin for later below. Thanks for checking out our Budget Friendly Farmhouse Bathroom Makeover.
