Budget-Friendly Laundry Room Makeover Reveal

I am really excited that I was able to successfully finish the $100 Room Challenge and produce a budget- friendly laundry room makeover reveal.

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.

Before Pictures:

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.

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.

Subway Tile

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.

Pipe Shelving

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

Total Cost:

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.

  • Cabinet painting supplies $54
  • Tile cutter, grout, and adhesive supplies: 30.00 (Tile was free, I had leftover tile from kitchen backsplash )
  • Shelving and pipes: $28.00

Total cost: $112

  5. Fabulous ideas. Definitely giving me inspiration for my laundry room. Looks fantastic.

  6. Maria, I love how your daughter’s laundry room turned out! The soft blue of the cabinets is really pretty. The new pipe shelf is really fun!! Do you have to worry about the shelf falling of or the things on top of it? Just wondering since it doesn’t look like the shelf is tied down.

    Great job and I know it was a lot of work but sooo worth it,
    Happy fall,
    Barb 🙂

    1. The shelving is anchored in the wall so you can put heavy objects on the shelf. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.

  7. Wow, what a stunning laundry I would even iron my clothes if I had one like this. It looks so clean and elegant.

    1. Thanks Amy, its not that bad, its actually easy as long as you have all the right tools.

  18. Maria- This is beautiful! I love the blue cabinets and the tiled backsplash. And the industrial pipe shelving is perfect for this space. I’m sure your daughter is so excited to have such a gorgeous space! (And we had a hose break on our washer once… my son came up and said, “Water is spewing EVERYWHERE!” It ruined sheetrock and was not very fun to clean up, so I know that feeling). I am so glad you joined the challenge!

    1. Thanks so much, Erin, I really enjoyed entering the Challenge and will be back for some more. Hopefully, no leaks next time.

  19. What a great space for your daughter, that was so kind of you!!
