Budget Bathroom Makeover
See how Production Manager Abbi Masters took a small, out-of-date bathroom and transformed it into a modern retreat -- without breaking the bank.
When I told my contractor my idea for the bathroom mirror, he was initially hesitant. I was modeling it after a mirror in my parents’ house, so I knew it would work. The idea was to get a piece of glass custom cut to cover the entire wall from corner to corner, vanity to ceiling.
I had a glass shop cut a hole for a light fixture, and then my contractor framed the mirror with molding. In the end, this was actually cheaper than the framed mirrors that I had been pricing. And I couldn’t be happier with the finished product -- it completes the room and makes it feel much bigger.
Custom Mirror: $322
Light Fixture: $98 at Lowe's
TOTAL COST: $420
