Before and After: $100 Bathroom Makeover Idea

by on Feb 25, 2013

Admittedly, the ‘before’ in this makeover looks better than a lot of ‘afters’ I’ve seen. But this budget-friendly makeover idea is one that anyone suffering from the “bad tile blues” might appreciate!       

Some people love decorative tile borders… and that’s cool. Some people hate them. Nina Holst was in the latter category. So, like any homeowner itching for a change, she decided to do something about it — without breaking the bank. Her trick? Leave the offending tiles in place and paint over them with lime paint! The result looks similar to concrete (when left ‘natural’), but you can apply any color paint or finish to the surface afterwards. Pretty brilliant, right?
