Powder Room Redesign | Week Four Final Design

          It's the final week of the $100 Room Challenge! A group of talented bloggers, led by Erin at Lemons, Lavender, and Laundry, came together for a four week challenge to makeover a room with only $100. A challenge to spend a minimal amount of money and use what you have on hand to create something beautiful is my idea of a worthwhile project.


          My room looked like this when we started, just a blank canvas ready for some personality. 


          My design board showed texture from wall baskets, color in the framed art and flowers, and a warm gray wall color. 



          The chair functions only as a small decorative element for that slanted wall, and a place to set your iPhone when you piddle, not that I know from experience. I tried many cabinets in all sizes and shapes, and each one made the room feel cluttered and small. The chair was just a happy mistake. I brought it home from Goodwill at the time I was working on this room. It sat in the mudroom just outside the bathroom, and the wood just looked so pretty against the wall color, and it worked so well with the baskets. So there it stayed. And the Hank Williams print is staying there too; I just like it!
          

          This room feels so warm and pulled together. My daughter was looking at "before" pictures with me this morning, and she cringed at pictures of the old room. It had no personality. Even when it was clean and perfectly in order, it felt cold and clinical. So we are all happy to have a finished powder room!

          

          The total spent on this project came in under $100!
  • $30 - light fixture over sink 
  • $5 - old wooden chair 
  • $6 - Hank Williams print
  • $2 - thrifted baskets 
  • the paint was leftover from the master bedroom, another ongoing project 
  • the frames, majority of the baskets, turquoise rug, and the vase & flowers were already owned
  • the mirror came free with this dresser (score!)




          Go visit the other rooms below! There are some real beauties, and so much inspiration for refreshing a room without blasting through your budget. Thank you Erin for organizing this challenge!
