Got guests coming next week (or month)? Worried about the state of your outdated guest bath? Check out this bathroom with “quick fix” ideas that can be done in a weekend.
In this vacation retreat, the upper level guest rooms have side-by-side baths with a shared shower between them. The original vanity mirrors date the bathroom and provide little light.
