Paint On Some Wall Stripes

Even in long-haul remodels, some spaces cry out for prompt design attention. For a family moving into a new home in Butler, Pennsylvania, that space was the first-floor bath. Located between a home office and the family room, it's the most trafficked of the 1927 farmhouse's three baths and two powder rooms. It sported bare drywall and grungy carpeting.

A full redo wasn't in their budget, but they decided to make the space just a bit "less embarrassing." Refinishing everything from the plywood subfloor to the original sink fixtures with paint, the bath was updated in about four weekends.

Take a look at $439 Bath Remodel to pick up a few money-saving pointers and design ideas.
