A CREATIVE homeowner has been on a mission to transform her dull bathroom into a space she can be proud of.
Rather than spend thousands of dollars on finishes, she used paint to brighten and modernize the room.
TikToker Ashtyn Brooke (@ashtynxbrooke) is slowly renovating her dream home and is a fan of what she calls DIYB, meaning “do it your best.”
Targeting her bathroom, she revealed exactly how she remodeled the space with Home Depot and Amazon buys.
“I am turning my master bathroom into something I love, and that means getting rid of this tile floor,” she began in the clip.
Rather than rip out the beige tile and spend a fortune on new material, she simply lathered a thick layer of white paint onto it.
“Yes, you can paint flooring. Just get a floor painting kit from Home Depot,” she said about the $70 product.
“I wanted it to be brighter, fresher, and cleaner.”
For a bit of contrast from the white floors and white walls, she painted the floor moldings, the door trims, and window trims a taupe tan that matched the cabinets.
The mirror and the light fixture weren’t aligned with Ashtyn’s taste either, as she found them bulky and dated, so she ripped them off the walls.
“Next I went in with a putty knife and a hammer to get rid of tile, which I had never done before but it was kind of therapeutic and I loved it,” she said, before replacing it with her own favorite tile.
The dark marble counter top, which was the same shade as the tile floor, was a little drab for Ashtyn so she decided to also paint it white.
“I wanted something crisp, clean, and fresh.
“Again, you can get a kit for this, and it just matters that you seal it really well with the epoxy sealant,” she said, revealing she got the top coat from Amazon.
For an elevated appeal, she added a touch of bronze through the faucet, light fixture, and mirror.
In a follow up video, she revealed the final transformation, which looked straight out of a magazine.
Viewers praised her skill.
“Looks awesome! I have been wanting to paint my tile floors,” one person wrote.
“LOVE! What a boss woman! You killed this,” gushed another.
