I am really excited that I was able to successfully finish the $100 Room Challenge and produce a budget- friendly laundry room makeover reveal.
A laundry room makeover reveal:Tips
I have done a few $100 room challenges, it is always exciting and stressful. Its probably why I only have done a few. If you want to get motivated this challenge is a great way to tackle a room. You typically have 4 weeks to finish a room. Even though I had 5 weeks in September there were some tears shed making this project.
Tips: Always check to make sure when you put back the washer that the hose is attached. Fast forward… Ashley called and said there was water everywhere on the floor. Thank God she caught it ahead of time and minimal damage was done.
If you have been following along in week 1 I talked about choosing my daughter’s laundry room as the makeover. The plan is to paint the cabinets a light blue color, tile the backsplash with subway tile, and take down the wired shelving and replace it with a trendy industrial pipe shelving.
I present the new laundry room makeover reveal:
In week 2 I re-painted the cabinets from a dingy beige to a Sweet Bluette color, it warmed up the laundry room big time. My daughter and her family were happy with the color.
This was the most challenging project of the entire makeover. It was my first tile job. Tiling around the light switches around the washer and dryer hookup was difficult. I was lucky to have some unexpected help from my brother-in-law. Read all about it in Week 3.
I think the industrial pipe shelving transformed the shelving into something trendy and functional. Now there is enough headroom. Before you would almost hit your head on the wired shelving when you walk in. Check out week 4 for the pipe shelving DIY
In the end, I went over a little of the $100 budget. For only $10 Home Depot really helped and gave me a huge discount on an oak stair tread which was the perfect size for my shelving. What really counts at the end is my daughter and her family have a nice laundry room that they can use comfortably.
