Welcome back $100 room challenge friends.
We are attempting to makeover a seriously UGLY bath in this challenge. No joke, this bathroom could win a contest.
If you want to see the before, you have to go HERE. We aren’t posting it again until we can do a full before and after. There is only so much we can subject you all to.
Today we are sharing our updated bathroom light fixture.
When we first moved in there was this (be jealous):
*Affiliate links used to show like or similar products used. You can view our full Disclosure Policy here.
Because we are always on a budget, we picked up a quick and cheap replacement at the Restore until something better could be done.
We didn’t paint everything when we first moved in but the yellow, on yellow, on yellow was just too much to handle…..so the room was painted.
The fixture isn’t the worst thing in the world, but it’s not great either.
We, as in Salvage Sister…. cause let’s be real…the Mister really didn’t care, wanted a more simple design like this….
Back to the ReStore we went.
TIP – Sometimes you have to go multiple times to find what you are looking for. Keep a running list, on your phone, of not only items needed but measurements.
We already added an oil bronzed faucet so the fixture needed to be oil bronzed as well, for our taste.
Going into it we knew painting would be our best option so we just looked for the correct shape.
We found this for $5.
Actually I think it might have even been less as I think it was on discount that day. And we won’t name names of who broke one of the glass shades…okay, I confess it was me!
Clear glass shades were purchased for around $15 total. Check your local hardware store or these are similar to what we got just more expensive.
We already had this paint ………so that was FREE!
MISTER TIP – When choosing a light fixture, make sure the size of the back plate of the fixture matches the electrical box on the wall or you might have a bigger project on your hands.
When spray painting, do several light coasts, one at a time, to avoid blobs and runs.
**Follow all paint warnings on instructions labels.
And here’s our finished project:
Room Budget $100
Light Fixture $22 (half the price of a new fixture)
Amount Remaining $78
Here a few more projects we think you will enjoy:
See you next week!!! And we would appreciate any pins, if you liked this project.
