You will need
- Cleaning supplies
- A cotton shower curtain
- Hand towels

Step 1 Clean everything Clean everything — the floor to the ceiling and everything in between. Throw away old or damaged items.
Step 2 Paint Apply a fresh coat of mold resistant paint that is designed to be used in moist environments.
Cover an old linoleum floor with a fancy rug and new mat instead of tearing it out and laying down a new one.
Step 3 Replace shower curtain and towels Replace a plastic or vinyl shower curtain with a cotton one and buy decorative hand towels for display.
Step 4 Swap out hardware Swap out the old hardware on cabinet doors and install a new faucet and shower head.
Replacing a faucet and shower head is a pretty easy job.
Step 5 Frame mirror and mount sconces Frame the mirror with decorative molding and mount wall sconces on either side.
Step 6 Accessorize Fill a bowl with colorful soaps, place scented candles inside the wall sconces, and fill a vase with fresh cut flowers to complete the face lift.
