Yay! It is reveal day, and I am ecstatic. This month, a couple dozen talented bloggers completely transformed a room in their home for just $100.
I love this challenge; it is such a fun way to get the creativity flowing. It is fulfilling and inspiring to see these beautiful spaces come together on a realistic budget.
The room I picked for this challenge is the laundry room. I hardly recognize it! I can’t wait to show you the transformation.
Here is a look back at what we started with four weeks ago.
Here is our laundry room today!
1. Replace the shelves:
The star of the show is this beautiful hutch top.
After I took down the shelves, I started pondering on using a hutch top instead of cabinets.
You can find an incredible deal on a lonesome hutch top. I found this one for free on Facebook Marketplace, and it was the inspiration for the entire makeover!
First, I painted the hutch white. Then, I turned two of the doors into chalkboards.
I love the look of the chalkboards, and it was the perfect way to create more hidden storage. Because…realistically, not everything is display worthy in the laundry room all the time. There are just some things that do not fit in a cute basket or glass bottle!
2. Paint and an Accent Wall
I had a partial can of paint in this lovely grey green, and used it to paint the entry door. Can you tell I have a bit of a thing for green and pink?
For this accent wall, I tried out peel and stick wallpaper, and I LOVE it! It was easy to apply, and creates so much impact with just a small area.
We built a butcher block style countertop out of pine wood we already had. The rough pine is beautifully rustic, perfect to add some cozy farmhouse charm.
A Place to Hang Clothes
With the hutch taking up so much real estate, I didn’t have space to make a traditional hanging bar. Instead, I made a simple coat rack behind the laundry door.
We had some old hooks removed from the kids closets, and a scrap of base trim. So, I was able to put this coat rack together for free!
A New Light Fixture
This adorable little chandelier was a Marketplace find for $25!
Laundry Room Decor and Artwork
My last goal for this space was to add decor and artwork. This was the perfect opportunity to use some of my vintage patterns with missing pieces.
Four Dollar Tree frames, and $.75 worth of paper from Hobby Lobby later, and I have a small gallery wall for under $5!
In week three, I shared how to make this simple lint bin with a Dollar Tree trash can. I already had a paint pen on hand, so this little project cost just two dollars.
