When we were building my focus was to get all of the things what are hard to change down the road just right. Like flooring, cabinets, counter tops... you know all the hard finishes. Ready to see how I did a little master bathroom renovation on a budget?
This is how it looked when we moved it. Which I loved, but I really wanted to make the center cabinet in my master bathroom pop. I also wanted to add some contrast to the space. I combined the 2 and it is the perfect solution.

Instructions for Bathroom Renovation on a Budget
Before putting up my molding I used a pencil to sketch everything out. This helps with spacing and making sure I put the molding in the right place. For this molding I used the bigger molding on the outside and the smaller on the inside. The corners are 45 degree cutsI used my pin nailed to hang the molding so I have lease holes to fill.
After the molding was hung up I caulked all of the seams. You don't want to skip this step. Caulking is what takes a good molding job to a GREAT molding job. It fills in all of the cracks and makes it look so good when painted. I used caulk in the pin nail holes too since they are really small.
This is what it looked like after the molding was all up. To prep for paint I used frogger tape around the outside edge to avoid paint bleeding.
I then painted everything with Urbane bronze by Sherwin Williams. This this was a small space I just used a brush and roller to paint everything.
Hint: When hanging your moulding use a level to make sure it is all level and spaced correctly.
Master Bathroom Renovation on a Budget
Look at what an impact this adding molding and paint made to my master bathroom. I love how it makes the center cabinet post and really brings out the veins in the marble. I did floating white oak cabinets in here to help warm up the space and add a fun decorative element.

I have a post with all the hard surfaces in my master bathroom here. That includes cabinet color, hardware sources, lighting, marble and anything else I could think of.
