Very pleased & proud of how this room turned out.
Took a couple of weeks to complete, lots of evenings & weekend.
was on a strict budget and wanted to get the look for less
Bought everything from Bunnings (of course) & made smart choices with materials and products.
Too save money and to reuse/recycle, we kept the shower base & screen
Classic white 300x600 ceramic tile
Textured white 300x600 ceramic tiles
Crema 600x600 floor tile
Estilo shower head & taps
Acacia Project Panel used for benchtop
Mondella Marble sink (on clearance)
Olivieri tap (also on clearance)
Pine VJ panelling
Porters Paint - Yacht Race
Absolutely incredible transformation @craftyhopper. Well done.
If you feel comfortable, could you share your budget for this project so that members can see what is achievable on a restricted budget?
You should be so proud of yourself. This is an outstanding makeover.
With such a small budget I calculated every single thing we needed, even down to the tile spacers and if we had to buy a tool or a drill bit that we didn’t have.
I achieved all this for just under $2,000!
Mind you, I did get an absolute bargain clearance price on the sink and tap. But without the clearance price I’d have still been under $2,500!
My trick to get the look for less was to use the basic white tile to keep thing fresh and to use other materials that are cheaper, but give a great result ☺️
Very happy with how it turned out. Lots of Pinterest shopping for this one ☺️
Exactly what I was thinking of doing. Can I ask how much gap you allowed between the panelling and the tiles and the panelling and the ceiling cornice? Also did you attach directly to the existing walls and how did you cover any gaps?

This is such an incredible transformation and I can’t believe you the budget that you were able to do it on! It’s just unreal!
Could I ask; your mirror…(I absolutely love it!)…how did you make it? Would love to do something like it.
Thanks for the question.
The panel was cut to fit as close as possible to the tile and cornice.
I actually painted it before it went up. That way I could get the edges perfect.
As it fitted the space there were no gaps to fill, except the pin holes from the fixing gun & I just used an interior filler.
@Thank you for the kind words. I really do love this bathroom!
The mirror is actually from Bunnings. It’s 70cm and I think it was about $75.
