Embellish a Shower Curtain

There's a big price difference between a designer shower curtain and a basic white one. To get a custom look for less, purchase a plain curtain and add the embellishment yourself. Personalize basic bath towels, too, by adding a monogram.

Make Your Own Rustic Towel Bars

Using reclaimed materials in the bathroom is a trend that's both chic and budget-friendly — especially when you can repurpose almost-free or found objects. These easy-to-make reclaimed wood towel bars, fashioned from recycled packing palettes, will add warmth and a sense of history to your loo. Vintage spigots also bring character and charm.

Create Found-Object Art

Everyday objects can become focal points in your bathroom if you look at them with an artist's eye. When the design team at Birdhouse Interior Design opted not to use an original door in this 1910 farmhouse remodel, they repurposed it as an art piece in the bathroom. It's coated in chalkboard paint and scrawled with a whimsical Dr. Seuss quote. Photo by Dana Damewood

DIY Crate Shelves

Display shelving doesn't have to be pricey; in fact, all you need to make these crate shelves is a few craft-store crates and your favorite hue of paint. Staggering the cabinets creates additional storage space atop each crate and allows the shelves to double as wall art. Hang rustic wire baskets instead to achieve an airy, cottage look.
