Gretchen Schock shares her love of recipes, crafts and frugal living. She also speaks very opening about the challenges and triumphs of parenting a neurotypical child and a child on the Autism Spectrum. After a breast cancer scare in 2012, she decided to say goodbye to her nightly glasses of Chardonnay. It was time to get sober and live life with eyes wide open! The CocktailMom name remains, however with a new focus on healthy and authentic living.

My Freecycle Bathroom

I call it my Freecycle bathroom since almost all of the items used in our remodel is from freecycle. Took a few months to acquire everything, the power of manifesting should not go unnoticed though. The light fixture was a house warming gift from my FIL and the shower curtain I picked up in the AS-IS section of Ikea. We still need to redo the floors but I'm waiting till I see something worthwhile on freecycle. And yes even the paint I got on freecycle. The wire shelf on the wall is actually a spice rack from Ikea that I picked up on freecycle, just to make things confusing. :) The overall cost of the remodel was less than 200 bucks and that includes the new shower walls that my FIL and hubby installed. The bathroom feels much more spacious and you actually want to spend time in there now.

Wow. Wow. Wow. I saw the bathroom before the family moved in and it was so dreary! Now it's delightful! Great work.

FABULOUS!!! You guys did such a great job- what a difference!!! Love the pedestal too- bathroom vanities hide way too many things you really don't need anyway :)

thanks ladies. The sink is actually an original sink ( 70 years old!) from a neighbors house.

Looks fabulous! Love it, love it, love! We just found a salvage yard near us and plan to use it ridiculously as we do our basement remodel! - Wendi

Wow it looks lovely and all for 200 bucks that's barely anything for a bathroom redecorate!
