This Budget Bathroom Makeover Proves Little Changes Go A Long Way

Bathroom makeovers can be daunting. There's the plumbing you probably want to leave to a pro, that overhead lighting you'll likely have to rewire, and the tile -- back away from the tile.

Granted, that may not leave much in the way of transformation, but sometimes a mini makeover is all you need to create your new favorite room in your house. Here's proof:

This is Kelley...
...she's a blogger over at A Domestic Life.
And this is her cute little house.
Inside, her bathroom wasn't quite as charming.
Though it did have some perks: "It still has the original floor and wall tile – that amazing black and white 1950’s tile you see destroyed, cracked or damaged beyond repair in a lot of houses these days," Kelley writes.
So she set out to transform it.
But not without hitting a few bumps in the road...
...And making some odd discoveries beyond the walls.
In the end, however, this bathroom's true potential shined though.
And Kelley was able to pull it all off for under $200, she says.

Check out more step-by-step details on Kelley's budget bathroom makeover on her blog A Domestic Life.
