We officially started our first fall renovation this past weekend by demoing out the main bathroom. We took the summer off so our budget and our backs could take a break but we are ready to hit the ground running all the way up until Christmas…I think.

For the entire bathroom (tile, grout, supplies, and decor) I only had to budget a little over $1400.
