$100 Laundry Room Makeover DIY, Vintage Chic Laundry Room on A Budget

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!

DIY vintage shabby chic laundry room makeover on a budget

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.

Wood Countertop

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.

Diy coat rack for the laundry room

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.

    Wow, I just can’t believe that hutch top! That is a truly one of a kind laundry room and what a great idea. I also love the peel and stick wallpaper, I recently tried it too and am in loooove! Beautiful laundry room.

    The hutch top was a brilliant idea! I love how it looks and adds so much style to this small space. All of your small detail choices added up to such a big impact! The wallpaper, light fixture, and artwork all work so well together. Great job!

    WOW!!! That hutch top was such a perfect find for this space, and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out. Super cute idea to go with chalkboard on some of the fronts to hide those (not so pretty) laundry supplies. The butcher block counter top is just stunning, as is the peel and stick wall paper. You did such an amazing job with this space! Thank you for joining the $100 Room Challenge this round!

    OHMYGosh! I have been searching for inspiration to redo my laundry room on a budget like this. I love this style so I was searching that category on pinterest and this popped up immediately. My Mother’s s French Provincial China cabinet has been sitting in my storage building for about 20 years now and I keep thinking surely I will figure out a way to use it, but I don’t need a china cabinet. I have a huge one of those that I use since I own and USE China and my 12 other sets of dishes for Family get together big meals. I thought a coffee bar, having seen gorgeous transformations on Pinterest, but then realized the only place it would ever fit has no electricity in that wall. Also up in the attic over that area is where the deck that holds our central heater equipment sits, so no access to run electricity. I don’t want to run extension cords across the foyer to the closest outlet. I kept the china cabinet and kept thinking. I will go measure the top and see if it would fit in my laundry room like this now. I do need the storage in there. Crossing fingers because I love your redo. Sammie
