Homeowners share economical, innovative ideas for redoing a bathroom.

If you like the look of retro, you'll love this renovated bathroom. Instead of paying $2,500 for a custom vanity and sink, homeowners Donna and Mike Schramm assembled their own stylish counter using a table they bought at a restaurant supply store for $300. They spent another $300 on the sink and plumbing materials and then pieced it together. To contrast the industrial vanity, they gave the rest of the bathroom a few traditional features, including using inexpensive subway-style tile purchased online for $5 per square foot to surround a 1940s tub purchased in an antique shop.
