An old farmhouse window frame surrounded by colored glass panels ($15) with a piece of mirror glass for the center area became the focal point of the new bathroom. To replace the cheap vanity, we replaced the top of an old sewing machine ($75) with an oak countertop ($60) and installed a copper sink and faucet set ($100). We put in bamboo flooring ($100), halogen track lighting ($50), and painted in warm earth tones. The total cost was under $800.
Who did the work: I did all the work myself
Cost: $500 to $1000
