Bathroom Refresh with Better Homes and Gardens {makeover}

I was recently invited by Better Homes and Gardens to participate in a bathroom refresh with their products sold exclusively at Walmart. The opportunity and complimentary gift card couldn’t have come at a better time as our guest bathroom was still decorated for Christmas. We recently renovated this guest bathroom from an old 1970’s style to a modern cottage style that is much more pleasing on the eye. I was excited to freshen up our guest bathroom with a modern cottage design featuring various shades or blue, green, brown and white.

Our guest  bathroom over the last couple months has changed dramatically. The existing bathroom had an old cast iron pink tub, pink toilet and old vanity. We removed the old cast iron tub, pink tile surround and replaced the pink sink with a new white modern sink. We choose to paint the existing vanity and update with new hardware.

Here is the bathroom after the renovation last December decorated for Christmas.

Needless to say, the bathroom refresh with Better Homes and Gardens challenge couldn’t have come at a better time. The Christmas decor needed to go! Better Homes and Gardens has a great selection of bathroom decor sold at Walmart with a large color selection to choose from . I love a modern cottage styled bathroom and was pleased with their selection of bath spring decor.

So lets get started with our “new” Modern Cottage Spring look by BHG @ Walmart products.

The shower above is where the old pink tub was prior to the renovation. I love how the classic striped shower curtain from Better Homes and Gardens coordinates with the glass mosaic tile. I chose the Egyptian aquifer  colored bath and hand towels along with the matching memory foam mat (aquifer color) for in front of the shower.

The classic striped bath mats by are perfect for in front of our vanity. Don’t be afraid to venture out of the bathroom department at Walmart. Better Homes and Gardens carries a full line of home decor and kitchen accessories which is where I picked up the clear flip-tite caninsters, photo frame, candles and faux flowers. The clear kitchen canisters are perfect for displaying spring flowers and storing bath accessories.

I chose the white + chrome soap dish, toothbrush holder and tumbler.

Our vanity is a bit long so I decided that the classic striped bath mats by Better Homes and Gardens looked better paired together in front of the vanity. The striped shower curtain, blue towels and striped bath mats really look fabulous together.

The candle area in Walmart has a fantastic selection of candles and scents by Better Homes and Gardens. This is where I found the glass hurricane candle holder + candle below.

I also purchased decorative gems vase filler by Better Homes and Gardens for the base of the candle holder.

A basket filled with rolled towels is an ideal storage solution for bathrooms lacking in the storage area. I was very impressed with the color assortment of  plush bath towels, hand towels and wash clothes that Better Homes and Gardens offers at Walmart.

This fuschia colored decorative silk flower  by Better Homes and Gardens I think is my favorite purchase for this bathroom refresh challenge. So simple yet elegant.

I purchased a bunch of these flip-tite clear canisters in the kitchen area of Walmart. Better Homes and Gardens has their own section in the isle filled with canisters of all sizes and shapes. These are perfect for storing soaps, bath beads and other bath accessories.

The white matte frame below is also from Better Homes and Gardens.  To jazz it up a bit and add some color to the room, I purchased a piece of scrap book paper and added it inside the frame. A simple and inexpensive solution to add color to any room.

This guest bathroom ( really my husband’s bathroom) is now ready for spring.

    WOW! Jessica that looks gorgeous! My kids’ bathroom is in serious need of an update and since I’m at Wal-Mart at least twice a week I already love their BH&G line! I know I’ll be turning to it when I finally tackle that space. I cannot get over how fabulous the shower curtain looks with that beautiful mosaic tile. Well done girl! :-)

    Jessica, I have been looking for a glass Hurricane candle holder just like this one. Loved it, actually loved the entire bathroom!

    I have been to three Walmart stores in my surrounding area and still can’t find. Do you by chance have an item number that you can provide so I can go back to one of the stores and see if an associate can help locate. I showed the picture to everyone is the Customer Service Dept and they all loved too but none of us could find this candle holder.

    • Jessica Bruno April 4, 2013 at 10:28 am #

      I just emailed you directly!
