Hide CaptionShow CaptionThe crowning achievement was refinishing the tub, which cost just under $300.
After: Now, the new toilet and vanity give it a clean stylish look, and the freshly painted walls and white trim (which was black!) turn it from a liability to asset.

LaPorta decided to cover the hardwood floors with carpet because they were in bad need of repair. She gave it definition by setting it up as a home office to maximize the square footage.

Cost breakdown:

bathroom upgrades $557
carpet $520
furniture $325
tub $280
building materials $150
accessories $106
paint and supplies $60

Total: $1,998
