It is the last room in our house to be updated. With 3 active boys, our budget is below shoestring. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this room to get a makeover. I am really into the country cottage/ shabby chic look..Thank you so much!!

Depends upon your defn of shoestring. Priority would be floor first then vanity then mirror. If you r a DIY type you might be able to just do a paint treatment on the vanity if it is in good shape. Countertop should be replaced. Cost is in the materials you choose. Basic on sale tile for the floor can be inexpensive and look ok. Vanity top can range widely too but is where I'd invest in solid surface or stone if I could. Wall subway tile is classic and nice and a mosaic can jazz it up in small quantities.

I would get a double vanity. You can use bead board on the walls. Go with simple white subway tile and a black and white or a gray and white floor. You can decorate in your style.

Go check out Habitat for Humanity ReStore....great tile, sink, tub and cabinet deals all the time. Get an old dresser and refab into a cabinet. Also, check out closeout/clearance end caps at the big box stores. They have deals on cabinet sink combos all the time. Also, lots of deals on ebay and craigslist if you are patient.
