As some of you may remember from my mini house tour, I so love decorating. The only problem…my budget does not love it. So, I try really hard to make my house look nice without having to spend a lot of money.
Right now, we have to do some work in our bathroom because one of our faucets was falling apart. We lost part of the top of it, it shoots water out like a water gun spraying water everywhere and the drain plug is broken causing more and more items to fall into the drain. Who knows how many Q-tips are in there?!? Also, our shower head was pretty yucked up even after many many attempts to soak it in CLR and the likes.
Here is what I am starting with. Sorry, the shower head picture is pretty blurry but you probably didn’t want to see the yucky stuff anyway.
Lucky for me, Home Depot is having a Redo & Renew Bathroom sale. My husband and I headed there today to check out the prices. They really had a lot of reduced prices on bathroom fixtures and to my surprise, their customer service was amazing. If you have been shopping at Home Depot as long as I have, you may remember, way back, when there was always someone available to happily help you. And, that is just how it was again today.
Jay, was great in helping my husband and I get exactly what we needed. Even making sure that we got all the hookups and putty and whatever else was needed so we didn’t have to make another trip. In less then 1 hour, we had picked out a bathroom faucet, shower head, light fixture and all the accessories we needed to install everything for just around $250. Which was my budget. I shopped and staying within my budget…woohoo! Something that does not happen too often when I’m doing a fix up in the house.
They also had a great Redo & Renew Your Bath For Less book which you can see above on the table. Be sure to pick one of those up as it’s filled with great tips on how to install bathroom fixtures yourself. You can also check out the Bathroom How-to Center. Or, how to create a Half Bath of Your Dreams on a budget. Plus they have great workshops which you can sign up for as well. So be sure to inquire about that when you are there.
Honestly there was so much to choose from. And the prices during this Redo & Renew Bathroom sale are awesome. There was a super nice Vanity with marble top & mirror for only $99 (org $250). Plus the light fixture I picked up was only $59 (org $79). Faucets were as low as $30. And nice ones too. And we are saving money by doing to installation ourselves. I’ll let you know how that turns out. Should be fun 🙂
But, I was really impressed at how you really can spruce up your bathroom for a great price. And, wait, it gets even better, because….
