I want to put granite vanities in master bath.

i also want to put tile around the back of the garden jetted tub. I can do the vanities myself with new bronze faucets for about $800. The tile job I can do myself for around $100-150. Should I do this? I know it will look nicer and all but will I get my money back on this?

  Bronze faucets are beautiful. Be aware that bronze is a living finish, every time you touch it,the oils from your hand will cause a chemical reation, along with soap,toothpaste etc. Some maufactures include a clear coat over the bronze to protect is look.
  It is o.k. for the finish to change some people like the aged look.

These days, it seems that everyone is impressed by granite.  I believe it IS a selling point, with a few caveats.  Will everything else look like it still "belongs" once the granite is in place?  If updating the vanities and tile surround make ANY other part of the bath look outdated or shabby, then I would say that you are unlikely to get your money back. If, however, that these changes move your bath from "OK" to "great!", then you would very likely recoup your time and money investment.  Moderate Bathroom updates net a fairly high percentage of investment...if it looks as if the entire bathroom has been updated.

Will you get your money back?  There are few (if any) remodelling jobs that will give you dollar for dollar payback when you sell but $150 seems like a very small amount to be concerned about.    Are you trying to spiff up the property to sell?   If the current tile or situation looks great, you shouldn't need to add granite.   If the current back is in shoddy condition, yes, it is a good idea.  

If you aren't planning to sell soon, do it if you want to for your own pleasure.
