In the Guest Bathroom

I know what you're thinking, "Marie, you haven't even finished your Desk Nook Area, yet!"  Well, unfortunately that "nook area" entails a trip to IKEA and the nearest one is over 2 hours away. 

Alas, I'll have to focus my energy on other projects and wail over the fact that our new desktop is still sitting in the corner of our kitchen...on the floor ...and on the countertops.  Talk about design.  ;)  LOL!  

So it's off to our teeny, tiny, dark basement guest bathroom.

This space gets used constantly by guests.  It needs to offer a cleaner, crisper and lighter feel.  I had painted it this pretty blue-ish color before my son's 1st birthday 3 years ago, but nothing else ever came of it.  Let's just say, it's time to take a different approach.

Okay, so here we go...

This is our basement guest bathroom as it stands right now...

Not much going on, amiright?  Well except for that rusty vent cover and the dirty shower curtain.  Yikes!

This is the direction in which I'd like to take the space...

A lighter color and some board and batten should help with the darkness issues.  I also plan on painting the vanity white (the one below is listed only as an inspiration piece).  I was totally inspired by Megan, over at itsagrandvillelife, with her cabinet makeover.  Go and check out her bathroom.  It looks great!

So, here ya' go, another mood board for ya'll.

Board and Batten (thanks to younghouselove for their tutorial- I still miss them - sad face)

Oh and did I mention that I'm hoping to stay under $100 for the entire project?  
Any helpful hints/tricks out there for me?

Wish me luck!

Marie :)
