How to Refresh Your Small Bathroom – DIY

Sharing is caring!

I am so excited to finally reveal our half-bath small bathroom refresh today! Our bathroom before wasn’t horrible, it just didn’t have any character. I wanted to create a bathroom that made me feel happy to walk into! I hope this post inspires you on how to refresh your small bathroom in your own home!

Here are a few before pictures of our small bathroom.

Floor Choice

The first thing that we did to the bathroom, was to install floor pops on top of our existing tile. I really did not care for the brown poo colored tile that came with our house and wanted desperately to change it. I have painted tile before, in our laundry room and also in our master bathroom but wanted to give this product a try. FloorPops were so easy to install and made such a difference in the final result!

You can find Floor Pops on Amazon and there are also many different prints to choose from. And yes, I do need a pedicure!

Board and Batten

Next, we added board and batten to the walls. At first I wanted shiplap, but decided at the last minute to do board and batten and I am so glad we did! I love the crisp white against the new floor!

Before, we used to have a simple pedestal sink but we never had enough room for soap or storage. We decided to install these butcher block counters that we got at Lowes.

This vessel sink was the perfect touch.


The cooper faucet paired with the light fixture from 1stoplighting.com was the perfect touch. I love that the light fixture its two toned and picks up the copper from the sink. 1StopLighting always has a great variety of lights to pick from for every room.

The bottom shelf makes a great space to add extra toilet paper and hand towels.

The toilet paper roll may be my favorite addition. Its the perfect spot to hold your phone or you cup of coffee!

  1. Hi Leanna! I follow you on Instagram and love seeing all of your projects. We are starting a bathroom remodel and thought your blog would be the perfect place to start browsing to get ideas. Were the butcher block counters pre-cut? Or did you cut to your specs? Do you happen to have a link for them? Also, did you treat it with anything to keep it waterproof? This little bathroom is adorable.
