When we moved into our auction house one of the only rooms that had been updated was our main hall bathroom. As nice as it was that it was updated, it was very “builder basic” and nothing that I would have picked out. If it were up to me it would have turned out as unique and “industrial modern” as our master bathroom did. But…we couldn’t justify tearing out a perfectly fine updated bathroom, so instead I settled for affordable vintage inspired bathroom updates.
The bathroom started with two small mirrors, separated by a cabinet, making the entire bathroom feel smaller. I took those down and replaced them with a large mirror I had from an antique vanity.
I love the antique style of the mirror, along with the old wood and shape of the bottom.
Then I took down the rusted light fixtures and coated them with oil rubbed bronze spray paint. I also added some squared glass shades to replace the curved glass ones.

We also replaced the faucets with these vintage inspired ones.
Of course we also made the floating shelves with faux rivets that I am still in love with.
Even though this bathroom isn’t everything that I would put into a new bathroom, it came a LONG ways for under $200. Hopefully I’ve inspired you to tackle some minor updates in your house!
