A bathroom renovation always seems like a great idea, especially when your bathroom in question has seen much better days. If that's you, don't be embarrassed — we've all been there, and it's easy to put a bathroom renovation off for other crucial tasks in the home that need to be completed.
But in one homeowner's case, there wasn't really much of a choice. You see, this homeowner was planning on renting out a basement suite to potential tenants in the property. And the reddit user projectdiy could simply not even think about advertising the bathroom looking the way it did. From the yellow-stained tub to the squishy drywall and ugly tiles, this bathroom clearly had to go. The best part? The whole project only cost $500 to complete. We don't know about you, but this sounds like a great idea to apply to our own bathrooms, even though we're not renting any out anytime soon. Our bathrooms could all use a little TLC — it's arguably the most useful room in the house, after all!
