• Laid ceramic tiles rather than real slate squares for easy-care flooring on the cheap, $85

• Hired a contractor to tile the shower surround, install drywall, and paint the walls, $525

• Installed a new toilet, a pedestal sink, and a faucet, $604

• Mounted two sconces flanking a beveled mirror, and a ceiling fan light, $332

• Put in a new window, a towel bar, shower hardware, and a wire shower-curtain track, $192
