Refreshing a space doesn’t have to be expensive. Between some leftover paint/materials and $30 at the thrift store, this bathroom got a much needed upgrade. Check out this Thrift Store Bathroom Refresh.

This was the sad before of our neglected bathroom. We did new subway tile and a new bathtub etc a year or so ago, but after that, it just got very little attention. But now it’s this bright new space! Keep scrolling to see.
Thrift Store Finds
For this project, I wanted it to be a thrift store challenge of sorts. I spent $30 at the thrift store, but besides that I simply “shopped my house” and used things that I already had.
From the thrift store, I got:
- A flat bed sheet (for a shower curtain)
- Baskets for some much needed storage
- Towel hooks (which aren’t pictured because I didn’t get a chance to redo them in time

After the Refresh
Adding this shelf and baskets was absolutely crucial to the function of this bathroom. The vanity doesn’t have any drawers, so the only storage is the big open space in the cabinets underneath. Our counters have always been cluttered in here, since the storage just felt difficult. I’m excited to have some designated storage now, that feels easier to take out and put away, in order to keep the bathroom feeling cleaner.
The vanity got a new coat of paint. I was going back and forth and honestly couldn’t decide. I have loved seeing the warm beige cabinets recently, but I also didn’t hate the black cabinet. I had a quart of a “reject paint” from Home Depot a while back (it was $2), so I decided to just go for it and paint it and I’m SO glad I did. It feels so much bigger and cleaner and just feels so much more cohesive. I’m absolutely loving this space now.
This shower curtain (shown above) honestly turned out way better than I thought it would. I bought a flat bed sheet, folded the bottom over the create the ruffled layer, and then cut slits in the top that lined up with my shower curtain liner. That was it and I love how it turned out. So simple and so good.
Such a Simple Refresh
It’s amazing how simple and affordable this refresh was, but also how big of an impact it made. This space went from blah to so cute in a matter of hours. I hope this inspired you to refresh a space in your house using thrifted finds.
